  • 🔥 The Detroit Lions Super Bowl odds are tied for the seventh shortest among all NFL teams and fourth shortest among NFC teams.

The Lions closed out the 2022 NFL season on a high note, winning eight of their final 10 games. Although they missed a playoff spot, they enjoyed their first winning record (9-8) since 2017. The Lions have started the 2023 season with a 2-1 record with two impressive wins against the Kansas City Chiefs and Atlanta Falcons. After Week 3, the Lions playoff chances sit at 69.2% for the 2023 season.

Lions Super Bowl 58 Odds: September 29, 2023

The Lions Super Bowl odds are +2000 per DraftKings Sportsbook. Their odds have shortened after winning two of their first three games this season. The Lions opened up the 2023 season with +2200 Super Bowl odds. Below are the rest of the Lions' postseason odds for 2023.

🏆 Odds to Win SBLVIII+2000
👑 Odds to Win NFC+950
Odds to Win NFC North-105
🔥 Odds to Make Playoffs-225
Odds to Miss Playoffs+180

The Lions are tied for the seventh-best Super Bowl 58 odds (+2000) among all NFL teams entering Week 4 of the 2023 season. However, history doesn't exactly back the Detroit Lions and their chances to win the Super Bowl. 

The franchise has never made a Super Bowl appearance, let alone won it. A division title in 2023 would also mark history for the franchise, as they've never technically won the NFC North. Their only division titles came prior to the reorganization of NFL divisions back in 2002, when the NFC Central was disbanded, and the Lions joined the NFC North.

Lions Super Bowl Odds vs. NFC North

The Detroit Lions have the best odds to win Super Bowl 58 among any other team in the NFC North at +2000, which indicates a 4.8% chance based on implied probability.

The Green Bay Packers rank second among NFC North teams with +5000 odds to win Super Bowl LVIII. The Packers have also started the 2023 season with a 2-1 record, and their new starting QB, Jordan Love, is outperforming preseason expectations. The Packers' postseason history is the most extensive among the NFC North teams, with a division-high 34 playoff appearances and four total Super Bowl wins. However, the 2023 Green Bay Packers roster is generally quite inexperienced, particularly on offense. The 2022 Packers, with Aaron Rodgers, finished in third place in the NFC North with an 8-9 record.

The Minnesota Vikings rank third among NFC North teams with +8000 odds to win Super Bowl 58. After starting the season with a 0-3 record, the Vikings have seen a huge drop in Super Bowl odds since they opened the season with +3500 Super Bowl odds. Minnesota has never won a Super Bowl and has not appeared in a Super Bowl since the 1976 season when they lost 32-14 vs. the Oakland Raiders in Super Bowl XI.

The Chicago Bears (0-3 record) rank last among NFC North teams with +20000 odds to win Super Bowl 58, tied for the third worst odds among all NFL teams entering Week 4. The Bears (3-14) finished with the worst record in the NFL in 2022 and look even worse this season. Chicago last appeared in a Super Bowl in 2006 (lost vs. Colts in SB XLI).

Lions Super Bowl Odds: Week-by-Week

The Lions Super Bowl 58 chances were at +2200 before Week 1 of the 2023 season and now sit at +2000, entering Week 4 after their 3-1 start.

  • Entering Week 1: +2200 playoff odds (4.3 % implied probability)
  • Entering Week 2: +1700 playoff odds (5.6% implied probability)
  • Entering Week 3: +2000 playoff odds (4.8% implied probability
  • Entering Week 4: +2000 playoff odds (4.8% implied probability)

Detroit Lions Super Bowl LVIII Outlook and Predictions

The prospects of the Detroit Lions winning the Super Bowl haven't felt this promising in years, but there are two areas in which the team will need to take some massive strides to make it happen: offensive performance on the road and improved defense.

Though the Lions' offense has been very productive since the start of the 2022 season, they have struggled on the road. The Lions have averaged 31.7 points per game at home and 19.6 points on the road since the start of the last season. Jared Goff has had just seven passing touchdowns on the road during that span (27 pass TD's at home).

The Lions defense was their biggest area of weakness in 2022. Detroit's defense ranked bottom five in total yards allowed, points allowed, and big plays allowed. To address the defense, they added S C.J. Gardner Johnson and CB Cam Sutton in free agency. The Lions also used two of their four picks in the first two rounds of the draft on LB Jack Campbell and CB Brian Branch. 

So far this season, the Lions' defense has had two good outings against the Chiefs in Week 1 and against the Falcons in Week 3. However, they allowed 37 points in their loss against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2. The Lions' defense suffered two important injuries in Week 2, with starting safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson tearing his pec and linebacker James Houston fracturing his ankle. Both players were placed on IR this week and will miss significant time.
