Team Outlook and Scouting Report

2019 SEASON PROJECTION

The Lions could be poised to improve next season. Their neutral field simulation win percentage is significantly better than last season's win percentage. At 100/1, 1% odds-makers they are a longshot to win the Super Bowl. Their Super Bowl chances in simulations stand at 0.5 percent.

REGULAR SEASON RECAP

The 2018 season went as expected. They won 6 games vs an expected win total of 6.5. They went 3-5 on the road and were expected to win 3.2. They won 3 at home and were expected to win 3.3. Anyone who backed the Lions in all of their games on the money line would have earned a +270 unit profit at a 100 per game risk. Against the spread, they have delivered a +130 profit risking 110 to win 100 (9-7 ATS). The Lions have turned an ATS profit on the road but have lost at home. Below is a recap of all 16 regular games.

They are a below average scoring team based on points per game and below average in yards per play. They are a top 10 team based on yards per play allowed but only an average team in points allowed. They are the #20 ranked defense in opponents' TD rate (passing and rushing TDs per offensive play).
