It may seem like a daunting task, but an argument can be made that the Green Bay Packers should have beat the 49ers. That would have made the Lions situation a whole lot more interesting, getting to host the Packers in Detroit as a rubber match with the winner going to the Super Bowl. The Lions now have to travel across the country and play the 49ers at their own home, needing to overcome Goff’s road struggles as well as find a way to get the 49ers offense off the field.

Detroit Lions Super Bowl Odds Analysis

In order to disrupt the 49ers elite offense, the Lions will need to attack their weakness and that is the interior of their offensive line. Creating pressure has been a strength for the Lions defense as they rank third in Pressure Rate, now needing to once again collapse the opposing offensive line in order to make Brock Purdy uncomfortable. When Purdy has a clean pocket he is the most efficient quarterback in the league. Getting the ball out of his hands quicker than he anticipates is key to slowing them down.

Especially if they are without Deebo Samuel, giving the Lions poor secondary some ease. Without Deebo, the 49ers offensive production takes a step back as opposing defenses can throw more help side coverage at Brandon Aiyuk and bracket George Kittle with their linebackers. Should Deebo be unable to give a go, the Lions defense can do the same which helps mask their poor coverage marks. This is still a defense that ranks near dead last in Def Pass EPA and Def Pass Success Rate.

While the secondary prepares for Purdy and company, the front seven needs to anchor down against dual threat superstar running back Christian McCaffrey. Stopping the run has been a strength for the Lions this season, coming into this game ranked first in Def Rush DVOA, fourth in Def Rush EPA, eighth in Def Rush Success Rate, and sixth in Def Adjusted Line Yards. Should the Lions be able to at least slow down McCaffrey and force the Niners into a more one-dimensional offense then that gives their offense a chance to keep it tight.

It’s not enough for the Lions to just slow down the 49ers potent offense, they will need to find success when they have the ball in order to win this game. Goff’s production takes a dip when on the road, yet that may not be detrimental as their ground game comes into the contest with a surprisingly big advantage. Defending the run has been a weakness for San Francisco, ranking 15th in Def Rush DVOA, 24th in Def Rush Success Rate, and 26th in Def Rush EPA.

Should Jahmyr Gibbs be able to command defensive attention right out of the gate and suck in the secondary, then that opens up higher quality passing lanes for Goff to exploit. Their current Super Bowl odds have this game being the end of the line for Detroit’s magical run, yet their sneaky advantages on both sides of the ball may make this tighter than oddsmakers imagine. Should the Lions get the big win, then you can hedge their current odds in the Super Bowl to secure a profit and make the game that much more enjoyable.
