Lions Super Bowl 58 Odds: March 4, 2024

The Lions Super Bowl odds are +750, according to ESPN BET Michigan

πŸ† Odds to Win SBLVIII+750
πŸ‘‘ Odds to Win NFC+260

The Lions currently have the fourth-longest Super Bowl 58 odds, giving them the worst chances of any team remaining. The 49ers are the favorite (+140), followed by the Ravens (+200) and the Chiefs (+325).

However, history doesn't exactly back Detroit and their chances to win the Super Bowl. The franchise has never made a Super Bowl appearance, let alone won it. However, this team claims to be different than the Same Old Lions, and so far, they've proven it. The Lions have already defied the odds, winning the NFC North and hosting a playoff game for the first time since 1993. And now, they'll play in the NFC Championship Game for the first time since 1991.

Despite it all, Motown is once again the underdog in their first road trip of the postseason. With decades of agony behind them, will Detroit rewrite history and give the Motor City its first Lombardi Trophy?

Key Contributors Toward Lions Super Bowl Odds

Lions head coach Dan Campbell is in his third season with the Lions, leading them to history as they sit one win away from the Super Bowl. With so many impressive coaching jobs this season, he currently has the fourth-shortest odds at +1500 to win 2023 NFL Coach of the Year at DraftKings Sportsbook Michigan.

Meanwhile, franchise quarterback Jared Goff is playing the best football of his career, with +1100 odds to win Super Bowl MVP, the fifth-shortest odds of any player. Against Tampa Bay, All-Pro wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown and Rookie of the Year candidate Jahmyr Gibbs (+700 on Caesars Sportsbook) both scored touchdowns. Meanwhile, star rookie tight end Sam LaPorta (+4000) continued his historic rookie season with nine catches. 

Defensively, defensive end and hometown kid Aidan Hutchinson continues to wreak havoc, boasting 10 tackles and 3 sacks through two playoff games. While the team's secondary struggled all season, Detroit is thrilled to have star safety Chauncey Gardner-Johnson back from injury. The former Eagle delivered an interception in the first quarter from the right hand of Baker Mayfield after the former Rams, Panthers, and Browns quarterback suggested to the media that the Super Bowl-winning safety didn't watch film. With the return of the veteran defender from a torn pectoral, safeties Ifeatu Melifonwu (12 tackles and 1.5 sacks this postseason) and Brian Branch (+7500 to win Defensive Rookie of the Year) are playing on fire.

And you can't mention key contributors for the Lions without mentioning linebacker Derrick Barnes, who sealed a win over Tampa with an interception in the 4th quarter.

Detroit Lions Super Bowl LVIII Outlook and Predictions

The Lions are a win away from Super Bowl 58, facing the 49ers on the road in the NFC Championship Game. Detroit has the right matchups to contend in this game. Not only is San Francisco quarterback Brock Purdy struggling, but the Detroit defense is excelling. Where defensive coordinator Aaron Glenn's defense is strongest is the run game, and Kyle Shanahan's best offensive weapon is Christian McCaffrey. However, the Detroit defense has completely shut down the ground game all season, giving up less than 100 rushing yards in both playoff games.

Due to Purdy's struggles and the strengths and weaknesses of both sides, I think the Lions will cover the 7 points sportsbooks are giving them. And I'll take it a step further by predicting the franchise's first Super Bowl berth. After that, Detroit will get the winner of the Ravens and Chiefs, two teams they had polar opposite outcomes against in the regular season. They beat Kansas City on the road in Week 1 and lost in Baltimore, 38-6, in Week 7 – their lowest-scoring output offensively and highest allowed defensively all season.

Prediction: Lions win, 27-20
