The Lions playing in the Super Bowl just might have to wait another year.

Only three teams face longer odds of winning the NFC this year — unless you want to include the AFC teams — than the Lions, who are at 28/1 to win the conference, according to odds released by gambling site Bovada.

Only the Chicago Bears (40/1), Los Angeles Rams (66/1) and San Francisco 49ers (100/1) are worse.

The Dallas Cowboys are the favorites to win the NFC, at 9/2. The New England Patriots are 2/1 favorites to win the AFC.

The Lions odds to win the NFC North don’t look much better at 17/4, putting them third behind the favored Green Bay Packers (5/7) and Minnesota Vikings (9/4).
