Lions

Watching this Lions’ team is going to be very tough this season. The biggest loss for the Lions was trading away their all time great franchise quarterback to the Rams in exchange for Jared Goff and draft picks. They also lost good receivers in Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones to free agency, which created a huge hole in their receiving core. Their defense was among the worst in the league and they decided to not add any of the plethora of good defensive free agents this offseason. Some of the highlight players on their team are RB D’Andre Swift, TE T.J. Hockenson, LB Jamie Collins, and rookie tackle Penei Sewell. The Lions lack talent in most areas of their team and they play in a tough division. It’s going to be tough for the Lions to generate offense this season when you consider that Jared Goff has no one to throw to.

Betting on the Detroit Lions

The Michigan sports betting industry officially launched in March 2022, but it ended up being a very inopportune time. The industry came to a screeching halt just days after launch due to the COVID-19 pandemic affecting the state.

After a few rough months for the industry, the Michigan sports betting industry is now alive and well. The Detroit Lions are one of the most popular teams in the state of Michigan, and they have helped to drive the Michigan sports betting industry.

Michigan initially limited the sports betting options to retail sportsbooks, but there will be online sportsbooks available by the end of 2022. The Michigan sports betting industry could become one of the biggest in the United States, and the Detroit Lions will play a major factor. BetMGM Michigan is looking to make a splash in the state and we expect a professional team partnership is in the works. The Detroit Lions are a likely candidate.

PointsBet Michigan

PointsBet Michigan is set to launch when online sports betting becomes available, and this company will be a huge player in the industry. PointsBet is an Australian-based operator but has had great success since joining the US market.

PointsBet Michigan has already partnered with the Detroit Tigers, but this operator will feature plenty of Detroit Lions promos as well. PointsBet is known for its wide range of promotional offerings, which will become popular in the Michigan sports betting industry.

PointsBet has partnered with the Lac Vieux Desert Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians, and retail sports betting is already offered at the Northern Waters Casino.

DraftKings Michigan

DraftKings is one of the biggest names in the sports betting industry, and this company offers much more than just DFS options. DraftKings Michigan is already available for retail betting, and the mobile sportsbook app is coming soon.

DraftKings Michigan has partnered with the Bay Mills Indian Community, which has a large presence in the state. DraftKings Michigan will look to the Detroit Lions to help with the launch of its online sports betting app.

FanDuel Michigan

FanDuel Michigan has a huge advantage in the state’s sports betting industry by partnering with one of the three commercial casinos. FanDuel operators a retail sportsbook at the MotorCity Casino.

FanDuel Michigan will also offer mobile sports betting when that industry is available to launch, and it will likely become one of the biggest players in the market. FanDuel has a long history of partnering with professional sports teams, and the company will likely target the Detroit Lions.

FanDuel has targeted specific states to offer sports betting, and it chose Michigan as one of the states to target. The popularity of the Detroit Lions in the state of Michigan will help FanDuel Michigan achieve tremendous success in the industry.

William Hill Michigan

William Hill Michigan has partnered with the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians, and that will allow the operator to offer both retail and mobile sports betting. William Hill is one of the biggest bookmakers in the world, and the company will become a huge factor in the Michigan sports betting industry.

The Detroit Lions might not be one of the most successful teams in the NFL, but William Hill will use that team to help drive traffic and interest. Sports bettors excited about the Michigan sports betting industry will enjoy having William Hill Michigan in the mix.

The Michigan sports betting industry might have gotten off to a slow start, but things have started to turn around in a hurry. The Detroit Lions have played a role in helping these sportsbooks post some impressive numbers, but it will be up to other teams after the 2022 NFL season concludes.

The launch of mobile betting will help the Michigan sports betting industry grow, and 2022 should provide some huge handle and revenue totals.
