The Detroit Lions are NFC North champions and in the playoffs. Next stop: Las Vegas. Okay, maybe I’m getting ahead of myself. But, there’s a real possibility the Lions could go all the way this year. Who wouldn’t want to lose to the Ravens on the big stage? Just joking, but let’s admit that the Baltimore Ravens are likely heading to the Super Bowl and seem very hard to beat right now. So, what are the Detroit Lions Super Bowl odds going into the postseason?

Some key things have to fall into place to make the Lions Super Bowl bound. Of course, the main thing is that we have to overcome our opponents in the playoffs. Throughout this season of my podcast, “The Squad with Anne Erickson,” we’ve talked about the best and worst matchups for the Lions. Several guests have commented on both the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers being potentially very difficult teams for the Lions to beat, based on each teams’ strengths and weaknesses. I would throw the Seattle Seahawks into that mix, too, since the Lions haven’t been able to overcome them in the Dan Campbell era.

Now, I do think the Lions could beat the Eagles. This isn’t the same team it was at the beginning of the season. All due respect to my Eagles friends, but there are holes in the team right now, and I believe that in the right situation, the Lions could beat them. Also, they have Matt Patricia heading up their defense, which is great for any team going up against them. Spoken like a true Lions fan, right? That said, I believe a Detroit Lions Super Bowl run would depend on the 49ers getting taken out in an early upset game. I think it would be difficult for the Lions to overcome the 49ers but not impossible. Now, let’s get into the real numbers.

Detroit Lions Super Bowl odds:

  • What People Are Saying says last weekend’s Cowboys game, albeit frustrating, shows that the Lions could make it to the Super Bowl. “The Lions performance against the Dallas Cowboys last Saturday on primetime was eye opening for all the right reasons,” they state.

    They add, “Even in a loss, that type of performance was much needed to give Lions backers assurance that they can compete with them in a potential rematch in the playoffs.”

  • Next challenge

    Jared Goff and company’s next challenge is the Lions vs. Vikings game this Sunday (Jan. 7) at 1 p.m. EST. This game isn’t super important to the Lions, as they’ll probably end up a No. 3 seed regardless. What will be interesting is to see who clinches the No. 6 seed and goes up against the Lions in the wildcard round.
