For those who like to keep receipts on this type of thing, early projections give the Detroit Lions nearly the longest odds to win Super Bowl LVI.

As of Friday, has the boys in Honolulu blue at +15000 odds. Detroit is tied with the New York Jets. Below both teams, coming in at the very bottom, are the Houston Texans at +20000.

These low expectations for Detroit hoisting the Lombardi Trophy next year aren’t crazy in a year of massive turnover. You know all about that part. But the Lions still show promise with breakout candidates like T.J. Hockenson and D’Andre Swift, cornerback Jeff Okudah expected to turn things around, and the sheer raw potential of seventh overall pick Penei Sewell. It’s promise that’s potentially keeping them out of last place in these Super Bowl odds. and FanDuel also have the Lions at +15000 odds, while DraftKings has them a tad lower at +20000. is favoring the Kansas City Chiefs to win their second title in three years at +500 odds. Just behind them are the reigning champs, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at +600. The Buffalo Bills come in third at quite a jump at +1200 odds.

Back in April, Jeremy reported that released their 2021 NFL MVP odds, giving Jared Goff 80-to-1 odds to win the title.
