It’s the time of optimism and visions of a Detroit Lions uprising. Fans are feeling the positive vibes of the team’s 3-3 finish in 2021.
But perhaps that optimism is leading to some delusions of grandeur. Witness the report that more bets are being placed on the Lions to go over the 6-win line than on any other team’s win/loss prop total. Also, Lions coach Dan Campbell is the clubhouse leader in total money wagered to win the NFL coach of the year honors.
Those could be plausible outcomes. Detroit doubling its win total would certainly reflect positively on Campbell, who has garnered significant positive buzz around the league this offseason.
Then there’s the capper, as reported by Max Meyer of Caesar’s Sports. Running back D’Andre Swift has more money wagered on him than anyone else to win the NFL rushing title. That’s a bold bet for a player who didn’t even lead the Lions in rushing a year ago and has problems staying on the field for 17 games.
