    $$$ Your 2020 NFC North Division Champions: Detroit Lions +585 $$$

    Looking at some of the futures, the oddsmakers have given the Lions the longest odds to win the division, but I'd argue that they may be the only team that dramatically improved in the offseason.

    The biggest problem last season was their defense but they acquired corner Desmond Trufant to replace the departed Slay, and drafted Okudah from Ohio State to man the other side. Julian Okwara in the 3rd round could boost their pass rush and they also brought in former Patriots from all three levels of the defense in safety Duron Harmon, LB Jamie Collins, and DT Danny Shelton.

    On the offensive side, Stafford missed half the season last year and his replacements were garbage. Obviously he needs to stay healthy and he'll have some decent targets in Marvin Jones, Golladay, and Hockenson who's entering his sophomore season at TE. Adding D'Andre Swift in the draft gives them some explosion and pass catching chops in the backfield, not to mention insurance for Kerryon Johnson who's always dinged up.

    The Packers stayed relatively the same, and didn't manage to give Rodgers another viable target to pair with Adams. The Vikings lost Diggs, and the rookie Jefferson can't realistically be expected to immediately pick up the slack. Plus the Vikes' defense should regress imo, they suffered additional key losses on that side of the ball. The Bears are still trash offensively until they shore up their OL and kick Trubisky to the curb. And their offensive ineptitude took its toll on the defense last year, making them look average at times.

    I think the payout on this ticket is worth a stab. Lions will take a big step forward while these other paper tigers rest on their laurels.

They're still having bake sales to help recoup last season's losses, while sleeping on rolls of toilet paper they stockpiled in preparation for Coronapocalypse.

    The Detroit Lions are a solid 6 win team, that may get 7. The +550 should be for an 8th win.

    They will be dogs home and away in every divisional game.

    Well now see there Fats, you're already 0 for 1 because the Lions open with the Bears and Detroit is the short chalk at Ford Field.

    Is that really how you wanted to start the year? With a giant swing and a whiff at a lob right over the plate?

    LOL they haven't even had camp yet

    Who's the Bears starter? Foles or Turbo?

    The line 4 months out means nothing...let's watch it close Chi -2.5

    Nah, the line already moved in the other direction. I'm pretty sure it opened at a pick, no way in hell it closes with the Bears as a favorite barring some major injury between now and then.

    Figures someone with "Minnesota" in their handle might get a little fired up about this future.

    its a solid bet but its far too early. too many unknown variables for me to take cash out of my pockets and leave it with the bookies.

    Nice. I may drop a couple notes on it.

    I like that one too, albeit with less payout. Less pressure to take the division.

    They basically just show up, punch the clock, and should cash that.

    Maybe, I dunno... You're still the "take the team getting its ass kicked by three touchdowns to storm back and win +2200" guy to me, though. That's what a seasons' worth of clutter will do to a man's reputation, Johnny.

    Johnny, Johnny are you listening to me???

    I wouldn't bet a buffalo nickel on Matt Patricia winning anything or even half his games. Think about this. Someone thought he would be an upgrade over Jim Caldwell. Everyone on board with this hire should be fired.

    Yep, Vegas oddsmakers are currently adjusting Lions futures to less generous payouts in light of the latest Johnny Jinx.
