It’s only been two games, but the longer the Lions go without a victory, the longer their odds get of winning what’s long eluded the franchise.
The Lions saw their odds of winning the Super Bowl drop from 50/1 going into Week 2 to 100/1 going into Week 3, when they play the Denver Broncos on Sunday night at Ford Field, according to the sportsbook Bovada.
The Lions are 0-2, while the Broncos are 2-0.
The Packers are the favorites to win the Super Bowl, improving from 5/1 in Week 2 to 17/4 odds this week.
The Lions are 50/1 odds to win the NFC, tied with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Washington for second-longest odds, beating out the Chicago Bears, who are at 75/1.
The Bears are the only team behind the Lions as far as favorites to win the NFC North as well. The Lions have 12/1 odds — the Packers are favored at 1/7 — while the Bears are 33/1.
