Lions fans, you are NOT having a medical emergency! You read that right! Our Detroit Lions have become a shocking favorite for bettors to win Super Bowl 58. Bet MGM shared a tweet that said 47% of ALL NFC Championship tickets are on the Lions, and they have the 4th most bets to bring home the Lombardi.
I’ve been a Lions fan my whole life, and like many of you, I go into every season bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. Hopeful for a winning season and a playoff berth. Every year, we have been left with feelings of sadness and disappointment. Last year had a surprising end and despite not making the playoffs, the team and fans alike we’re more hype than I can ever remember. Listen, I’ve been making the blue Kool-Aid for years. Even when we’ve KNOWN the team was going to be trash, I still had hope.
For some reason now, because the rest of the country is starting to notice the Lions, I feel nervous, scared and anxious about being so hopeful for a winning season. Is it possible the years of crushed dreams have turned me from a Lion into a newborn baby kitten? Very likely. Either way, if you consider yourself a gambler, this may be one bet you want to make! GO LIONS!
