Detroit Lions Super Bowl Winner Odds

Today we preview 2020 Super Bowl winner odds with a focus on the Detroit Lions. The Lions were tired of finishing 9-7 for two consecutive years and decided to part ways with head coach Jim Caldwell after the 2017 season. The team brought in former New England Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia as their new head coach and finished with a 6-10 record, which was good for last place in the division.

After regressing last season, the Lions have a lot of questions going into the upcoming season. The Lions decided to get some pass rushing help and signed former Patriots defensive end Trey Flowers, who played under Patricia in New England and had 7.5 sacks last season.

The Detroit Lions also added some depth to the tight end position by signing former Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Jesse James, who had 423 yards and two touchdowns last season while splitting time with Vance McDonald.

Even though the team used the eighth overall pick on former Iowa tight end T.J. Hockenson, expect James to go into the season as the starter.

They also signed former Seattle Seahawks cornerback Justin Coleman, who played well for the Seahawks last season and should improve their secondary. Former Patriot receiver Danny Amendola, who spent last season in Miami, also signed with the Lions and will give quarterback Matthew Stafford a reliable veteran at the slot position.

One problem the Lions will have to address before the season starts is their running game. Kerryon Johnson played well when he was healthy, rushing for 641 yards and three touchdowns in 10 games. The team will need to have a capable backup if he can’t stay healthy next season. What does this mean for Super Bowl winner odds?

Detroit Lions offense will likely improve this season, but it is difficult to see them performing better than the Vikings and Bears, which means they will likely compete with the Packers for third place in the division. Their odds to win the Super Bowl is +9000.
