Team Outlook and Scouting Report

2019 SEASON PROJECTION

The Lions are winning more in simulations than they did last season which indicates that they should improve next season. At 100/1, 1% odds-makers they are a longshot to win the Super Bowl. Their Super Bowl chances in simulations stand at 1.1 percent.

REGULAR SEASON RECAP

The 2018 season went as expected. They won 6 games vs an expected win total of 6.5. They went 3-5 on the road and were expected to win 3.2. They won 3 at home and were expected to win 3.3. Anyone who backed the Lions in all of their games on the money line would have earned a +270 unit profit at a 100 per game risk. Against the spread, they have delivered a +130 profit risking 110 to win 100 (9-7 ATS). The Lions have turned an ATS profit on the road but have lost at home. Below is a recap of all 16 regular games.

They are a below average scoring team based on points per game and below average in yards per play. They are a top 10 team based on yards per play allowed but only an average team in points allowed. They are the #20 ranked defense in opponents' TD rate (passing and rushing TDs per offensive play).
