World-Class Offense Puts Lions Among NFL Betting Elite - Football Preview and Prediction

World-Class Offense Puts Lions Among NFL Betting Elite

We finally saw firsthand what a healthy Matt Stafford and a determined Calvin Johnson were capable of achieving last season, the pair combined to lead the Detroit Lions to their first postseason appearance of the 21st century. Now with 2012 set to begin, the two will have to withstand mounting pressure on the NFL odds if they want to make it two in a row.

Bet on the NFL at Bovada.

If Stafford can continue to stay healthy (no small task given his still-shaky track record), the Lions could find themselves creeping closer to the top of the Super Bowl futures as the regular season looms.

In Johnson they boast the sport’s top receiver, bar none, and actually have an arm powerful enough to feed him. He may not reach the 1,681-yard mark he set in 2011, but the impact of his mere presence on the field is enough to give Detroit an added boost on the NFL moneyline.

Expect Jahvid Best to perform admirably up the guts, but don’t be surprised if he doesn’t get a full season of work in thanks to a well-documented struggle with concussions. Although the Lions are never going to convince anybody that they’re a rushing organization, having competent men like Best up the middle helps keep defenses honest.

The pieces are in place for an explosive offense this year, but a lot will have to happen for the Lions to truly step in among the NFL elite.
