Betting on the Detroit Lions preseason
As hard as it may be to believe, Detroit is entering the season as the talk of the NFL. A lot of that has to do with the Lions appearance on HBO’s Hard Knocks. But there was some optimism surrounding the team before that, as well.
Friday night’s preseason opener against the Atlanta Falcons is the first opportunity for the Lions to add to — or deflate — that optimism. It kicks off at 6 p.m. at Ford Field.
Caesars lists the Lions as a 2.5-point favorite as of early Friday afternoon, which was a big move from earlier in the morning when the game was listed as a pick ’em.
Atlanta is +120 on the moneyline, while the Lions are -140, and the total is listed at 35.5.
Of course, betting on the NFL preseason can be tricky. Teams aren’t playing their best players for much of the game, if at all. So putting money on backups, and their backups, in an exhibition is risky.
Still, it’s your first opportunity to bet on the Lions this season.
