Lions Prop Bets Tracker: Detroit Is 0-4 In 2021. Here Is Where Season Wagers Stand.

Detroit Lions Prop Bets Week 4 October 2021

With the 2021 NFL season a month in, sports betting in Michigan has been there for you to place your bets on Detroit Lions player prop markets. We’re not quite at the quarter-pole yet in this 17-game regular-season world, but it’s time to take stock on where team and player goals are at a quarter of the way through the season.

You might know our drill by now. But we’ll circle back to some of the concrete season-long bets (like division, conference, and win totals) around every fourth game or so and the stats-based prop bets each week of the season.

The next update will come after the Lions take on the Minnesota Vikings in the third NFC North road game for Detroit in five weeks. The Lions are 0-4 after a 24-14 loss at Chicago last weekend.

Remember, too, that each week in a 17-game season now accounts for 5.9% of your season total. So we’re at the 23.6% mark through the campaign after Week 4.

Detroit Lions at Minnesota Vikings: Week 5 NFL Odds

Season-long BetMGM props

  • Detroit Lions making the playoffs (+700 Yes, -1100 No) — The no’s are looking good after an 0-4 start.
  • Scaled over/under win totals charts, from 1.5 (over -1600, under +800) to 9.5 (over +1100, under -3000) — The Lions have been competitive enough to win a handful of game. I think the range is still falling to around 4 wins myself.
  • Exact regular-season totals, odds ranging from +450 (same odds for 4 or 5) to +100000 (same odds for 15, 16 or 17) — See above. Those 4-bettors might be on to something.
  • Stage of elimination: Miss playoffs (-1100), lose wild card (+1000), lose divisional (+1600), lose NFC title game (+10000), lose the Super Bowl (+15000), win the Super Bowl (+25000) — Once more, the overwhelming favorite appears to be what will cash.
  • Week of Lions’ first win and loss — Week 1 saw an overwhelming -350 return in most markets; the first-win story is well up for grabs.
  • Lions to start 4-0, 0-4, 6-0 or 0-6 — 0-4 bets have already become a nice payday after Sunday’s 24-14 setback at Chicago.
  • Win all six division games (+25000), or lose all six (+400) — The third leg of the +400 market unfolds this weekend.
  • Win all home or road games (+100000 each), or lose them all (+1600 home, +400 road) — Everything still in play here.
  • Will a game end in a tie? (+1600 Yes) — The Tennessee Titans’ field-goal woes against the New York Jets robbed a nice cashout for this bet in last week’s action.
