Detroit Lions Futures Odds

Will the Detroit Lions win the Super Bowl? Will they win the NFC North? How many wins will they have during the regular season?

For example: If you bet $100 on the Lions (+200) to win the NFC North, the bet would settle when the Lions or another team clinched the division.

At +200 odds, a winning bet would pay $300 (including stake).

Detroit Lions Spread

If you bet on the spread, you’re betting on the scoring margin of the Lions’ game.

For example: If you bet $100 on the Lions -2.5 (-110) against the Green Bay Packers, Detroit must win the game by at least three points. 

At -110 odds, a winning bet would pay $190.91 (including stake).

Alternatively, if you bet $100 on the Lions +2.5 (-110) against the Packers, Detroit must lose by two or fewer points (or win the game).

BetMGM also offers alternate spreads, aka alt spreads, for all NFL games. Instead of betting the Lions -2.5 (-110), you could bet the Lions -5.5 (+140), a bet with a higher potential payout ($240 on a $100 bet) than the regular spread.

If the scoring margin is identical to the spread (e.g., -3 or +6), the bet is a push, and your money is refunded.

Detroit Lions Moneyline

Will the Lions win the game? The margin of victory is irrelevant in moneyline betting.

For example: If you bet $100 on the Lions -130 against the Chicago Bears, Detroit must win the game. The potential payout is $176.92 (including stake).

If the game ends in a tie, the bet is a push.

Detroit Lions Over/Under Total

How many combined points will be scored by both teams? The outcome of the game is irrelevant.

For example: If you bet $100 on over 45.5 (-110) in the Lions’ game against the Minnesota Vikings, the teams must combine for at least 46 points. The potential payout is $190.91 (including stake).

Alternatively, if you bet $100 on under 45.5 (-110), the teams must combine for 45 or fewer points.

BetMGM also offers alternate over/under totals for all NFL games. Instead of betting over 45.5 (-110), you could bet over 48.5 (+120), a wager with a higher potential payout ($220 on a $100 bet) than the regular total.

If the combined point total is identical to the over/under total, the bet is a push.

Detroit Lions Parlays

You can combine Lions’ bets and other NFL bets into one parlay for more entertainment and a bigger potential payout.

For example: If you bet $10 on a three-leg parlay with the Lions’ moneyline (-150 vs. the New York Giants), Packers’ moneyline (+120 vs. the Minnesota Vikings), and over 47.5 (-110) in the Philadelphia Eagles-Dallas Cowboys game, the potential payout is $60.01 (including stake).

If one bet is a push, it’s eliminated from the parlay, and odds (and payout) are recalculated without that leg. You can also Cash Out early on a parlay bet (if available).

You can also build multi-sport parlays with odds from NFL games, MLB games, and more. And BetMGM offers sports betting promotions for parlays.
