The Detroit Lions hype train is still rolling. After winning five of their last six games last season, the Lions remain one of the talks of the NFL and are listed as the favorite to win the NFC North at most Michigan sportsbooks.
That’s right, we’re talking about the Lions. Caesars lists the Lions as +120 win win the division, BetMGM has them +135 while DraftKings says +140.
It’s a great trivia question, but the Lions have never won the NFC North Division. The last time Detroit won the division it was called the NFC Central and it was 1993. Back then current Lions coach Dan Campbell was playing running back and tight end for Glen Rose High School in Texas.
So why all the buzz about the Lions?
