While we’re preparing for this year’s Super Bowl, why not predict how next year’s Super Bowl will pan out?
According to DraftKings Sportsbook, as of right now, the Detroit Lions have +10000 odds to win Super Bowl LVII. Those are the lowest odds in the league, tied with the Houston Texans and New York Jets.
I don’t know that this is the most surprising news but once the Lions bolster their problem spots this offseason, keep this receipt.
Plus, the article points out something key here — “These teams can seek comfort from the Bengals, who had the fourth-longest odds at winning this year’s Super Bowl before the 2021 season started.”
And onto the rest of your notes.

- Mlive’s Benjamin Raven continues his series reviewing each position group. Next up — linebackers.
- The Detroit News’ Justin Rogers explains how for top draft prospect Kayvon Thibodeaux, the chance to work with fellow Oregon grad Penei Sewell is a “chance at greatness.” ($)
- Enjoy this comedic observation from Woodward Sports’ Hannah Francis. Warning: May make you utter an audible “ope.”
- Detroitlions.com’s Mike O’Hara offers his first mock of the year, projecting the Lions’ first-round picks.
