NFL Picks & Predictions – Super Bowl Futures Bets

Detroit Lions (+1200) to Win Super Bowl LIX

There’s an argument to be made the Lions should have made the Super Bowl this year. 

However, a second half crumble ultimately allowed the 49ers to punch their ticket to Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas. 

For next year, I’ll turn to the team that’s realistically one unit – a pass defense – away from a complete roster. 

During the 2023-24 regular season, Detroit finished seventh in total DVOA – fifth in offensive DVOA, 13th in defensive DVOA, per ftnfantasy.com. 

Don’t let those metrics tell the whole story, though. In terms of their defensive output, the Lions led the league in rush defense DVOA but ranked 16th in pass defense. 

Given that their offense will play 14 of 17 games indoors next season, they will likely replicate that success. 

The Lions also aren’t a one-dimensional offensive unit, as they ranked top-seven in both pass offense DVOA and rush offense DVOA. Offensive coordinator Ben Johnson also returns, which leaves their main coaching staff intact. 

A bonus home game next season will surely help Detroit, which ranked fifth in home points per game across the regular season and playoffs. 

The last bit of good news? Detroit has cap space with which to work. 

According to spotrac.com, Detroit has the eighth-most cap space for the 2024 offseason ($48.1 million). 

That should give them the chance to secure their secondary while potentially adding some valuable skill players to an explosive offense. 

Add in 11 of the last 16 Super Bowl winners have opened the season with futures odds shorter than 12/1 – all but one have posted at 20/1 or shorter – and I’ll bet the Lions at 10/1 or better.
