Detroit Lions Climb NFL Sports Betting Odds Board with Undefeated Start

The last time the Detroit Lions started an NFL season with four consecutive wins, Jimmy Carter was the President of the United States. Since then, eight elections have come and gone.

So needless to say, it has been a while since the Lions last toyed with a perfect record, and skeptical football betting fans would like a few more victories as proof before they move the surging franchise completely up the NFL betting board.

They may find exactly that in Week 5 when Detroit plays host to NFC North rival Chicago.

Just years removed from an historic 0-16 campaign, the Lions caught the attention of football oddsmakers with a Week 1 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In the following weeks Detroit capitalized on winnable games against struggling opponents while maintaining their unbeaten record.

The ground-breaking fourth win came on October 1st against the Dallas Cowboys when, after trailing 20-3 at half time, the Lions battled back for a 34-30 win and a two-team share in the NFL’s top record – with Green Bay.

Though Weeks 1-4 alone will not rewrite Detroit’s betting odds of winning the Super Bowl, they will go a long way towards their goal of gradually building bettor confidence throughout the season. Another big win against the Bears this Monday will only add to the progress.

Is this the year the Lions reach 5-0? There are entire generations of football betting fans that would be seeing it for the very first time.
