Following draft, Lions odds of winning Super Bowl improve
Following the NFL draft, the Lions improved their chances of winning the Super Bowl. I kid you not. Their odds went from 40/1 to 35/1. Those are the same odds as the Vikings, Texans and Chiefs. Fourteen NFL teams have better odds with Green Bay and New England at the top of the list at 7/1.
A few more interesting odds, thanks to Bodog.com, reganding the Lions. RB Mikel Leshoure is 12/1 to win offensive rookie of the year while WR Titus Young is 14/1 in the same category. Cam Newton is the favorite at 5/1.
The Lions first-round pick, DT Nick Fairley, is tied with Von Miller with 13/2 odds to win defensive rookie of the year. CB Patrick Peterson is the favorite at 6/1.
Now all we need is a season.
