Detroit Lions betting and odds to win

 Jon Kitna little hope for the Detroit Lions to break the losing streak this football season.

Detroit Lions betting and odds to win To be a fan of the Detroit Lions is a tough call nowadays and according to the betting trends the team is expected to be one of the worse football performers the upcoming NFL season. When the last season the Lions finished 3-13 it was their sixth football season in a row they lost 10 or more. Some fans are hoping that the offseason moves could mean a turnaround for the Detroit Lions, but the betting odds sing a different song.

 Quarterback Jon Kitna will have a better chance to shoot on target, after the Lions signed number 2 overall draft pick Calvin Johnson from Georgia Tech. The offensive line should improve with the newcomers Tatum Bell and T.J. Duckett, after the Detroit Lions ranked in last place in run offense last season. The defense is getting a much needed boost with DE Dewayne White from Tampa Bay and the former Pro Bowler Shaun Rogers. Still a long way in front of head coach Rod Marinelli to show that the Lions have improved. The last exhibition game against the Browns gave a moral boost to the Lions, after they won the game 23-20. Jon Kitna led the Lions with a TD pass, while completing 12-of-16 for 137 yards as the Lions won their second straight preseason matchup. Much hope for the Detroit fans, who are finally looking forward to the regular season.

 Still, the online bookmakers remained unimpressed by the two wins and the betting odds on the Detroit Lions remain one of the highest in the NFL. This is the list of betting odds on the Lions as posted by the online sportsbook Bodog Sports (new window):

Detroit Lions odds to win the NFC: 45/1

Detroit Lions odds to win the NFC North: 4/1

Odds on the Lions to win the 2008 Super Bowl: 70/1
