The Lions might have a hard time generating offense this season. Jared Goff and some draft picks have been traded to the Lions in exchange for their franchise quarterback, Matthew Stafford, who has spent his whole career with the team. Many people see Goff as a downgrade and to make matters worse, the Lions also lost crucial wide receivers in Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones to free agency, Now the Lions are stuck with a skeleton receiving core featuring Breshad Perriman and Tyrell Williams as their top guys and not much else. Running back D’Andre Swift should improve from his rookie season where he was solid and T.J. Hockeson will become Goff’s best friend very soon with his ability to get open against any coverage. The Lions used their top draft pick to get tackle Penei Sewell who will make sure Jared Goff will not get sacked. But with no one to throw to, Goff and company will have a tough 2022.

Detroit Lions’ Fans Ready to Bet on a Change in Fortunes

Across the decades, there hasn't always been a lot of "Motor City Madness" surrounding the hopes for the Detroit Lions football prospects. The Lions organization originated as a team from southern Ohio, way back in the late 1920s. All but one of the Portsmouth Spartan's first four seasons didn't produce a winning record. In 1934, owners had the visionary business sense to sell the Spartans from the second smallest town in the NFL to Detroit. A Detroit radio executive purchased the Portsmouth team and moved it to his home city. The Lions were an immediate success in their new hometown. They reeled off six consecutive winning seasons, including a 26 to 7 victory over the New York Giants to win the 1935 NFL title. However, success soon turned sour. Detroit managed only two winning seasons across the next 15 years, including zero victories in 1942. The 1950s were by far the glory years for one of the NFL's oldest franchises. The Lions made four NFL Championship game appearances against the Cleveland Browns, winning three titles. However, there would be another 21-year playoff drought for Detroit. Detroit lost in the divisional round to the Dallas Cowboys in one of the oddest final scores in pro football history. Dallas netted one first-quarter field goal and fourth-quarter safety to beat the Lions 5 to 0. It would be another 12-years between playoff appearances. Since 1991, Detroit has made nine total playoff appearances but has won but a single playoff game in 1991. They have mustered a few promising seasons, only to fall short of expectations afterward. A new coach in Detroit has the loyal Lions' fan base excited about the future. These same Lions fans are excited about legal betting on their hometown team as well. BetMGM Michigan has less than inspiring odds on the Detroit Lions win totals this year. However, there is always next year.
