How to bet on the Detroit Lions odds
The moneyline is the simplest of bets, decided by the straight-up winner and loser of each game. Consider the following example:
- Lions +140
- Falcons -105
The Lions are considered underdogs in this matchup (indicated by +140), paying out $240 total for a $100 bet ($140 in winnings). The Falcons are the favorite in this matchup, requiring a $105 bet to win $100 (plus the initial bet back). How much either team wins or loses by does not matter in moneyline betting, the payout remains the same.
Betting on the point spread is determinant on how many points a team wins or loses by. Take the following example:
- Lions +6.5 (-110)
- Rams -6.5 (-110)
In this example, Detroit is an underdog by 6.5 points, indicated by “+6.5.” If the Lions keep the game within seven or win outright– say they lost 27-24– then the Lions (+6.5) win the bet and would have a total payout of $19.09 on a $10 bet ($9.09 in profit). If the Rams manage to win by seven or more– say 31-17– then the Rams (-6.5) would win, and the payout would be the same as listed above.
Point total (over/under)
The point total refers to the over/under line set by books. This number projects the total number of points scored in a game and, like prop betting, is bet whether one thinks the score will go over or under the set point total. For example, the Lions’ Week 4 matchup with the New Orleans Saints had a projected point total of 51.5 points. Detroit came up just short, 35-29, resulting in 66 combined points. Those who bet over the point total that week would have cashed out.
The Lions fielded the worst scoring defense in the NFL (32.4 points allowed per game), which would have resulted in higher point totals. However, their ability to score on offense inhibited the numbers from getting too out of control (23.6 points per game was 20th). The two ended up balancing out to average point totals that were determinant on the opponent the Lions were playing. Typical point totals landed between 45 and 50 points in 2020.
In-play and live betting
Sometimes, the most thrilling and rewarding bets are bets made while games are being played. These are referred to as live bets or in-play bets. Odds are ever-changing during games, which would prove to be fruitful for sharp and prepared bettors. For example, if the Lions (-110) were favored against the Jets (+120) before kickoff, a payout on a $10 bet on the Bills to win would win just $9.09.
However, say the Lions fell to a 14-3 deficit in the first half despite controlling the overall game (due to a costly turnover or special teams gaffe). Odds may swing in favor of the Jets, who may be a -120 favorite at halftime. Taking the Lions to come back and win the game could present plus-odds (say, +110). Should a bettor take Detroit (+110) at halftime and the Lions pull off the comeback, winners would win $11 instead of $9.09 (plus the initial $10 bet).
This could also be an effective way to “hedge” your bet; say a bettor took the Jets (+120) in that game, but Detroit jumps out to a 16-0 first quarter lead and is controlling the overall feel of the game, bettors could hedge by throwing some money down on Detroit (-255) to return some of the inevitably-lost bet.
Parlays and teasers
You can always string bets together in the form of parlays or teasers. Usually, during busy Sundays, bettors can parlay several teams to win or cover against the spread and if all bets are successful, the payouts are multiplied. Teasers function similarly, except they allow bettors to move each point spread to a more favorable line in exchange for diminished odds.
