Top NFL Detroit Lions Games to Bet On the Upcoming 2022-23 Season

Many teams improved this season from last, including the Detroit Lions. But just because the Lions improved, it doesn’t mean they have any chance of making the playoffs. Luckily, we can back or go against the Lions to cover spreads. See below for eight games on the Detroit Lions’ schedule that can lead to profit if you place your bets against their NFL Odds

Detroit Lions Must Bet Games During the Regular Season | NFL Betting Picks

2022-23 NFL Regular Season

  • When: Sep. 8, 2022 – Jan. 8, 2023

Detroit vs Washington | Week 2 – Sunday, Sep. 18

This is a home game for Detroit but the Commanders should be a decent bunch. Although Jared Goff is a better quarterback than many believe, Carson Wentz, at one time at least, was one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. Washington wins and covers. 

Detroit vs Seattle | Week 4 – Sunday, Oct. 2

Unless the Seahawks find a different quarterback, they will enter this game with Geno Smith or Drew Lock under center. Lock has some talent and Smith doesn’t make many mistakes. But Goff has talent. Detroit wins and covers behind their quarterback’s arm. 

Detroit at Chicago | Week 10 – Sunday, Nov. 13

Most believe Chicago is a better team than the Detroit Lions. We’re not ready to co-sign on that piece of paper. Detroit has a chance to provide a nice moneyline upset in this matchup. Aidan Hutchinson will be a handful for Chicago’s suspect offensive line. Chicago’s defense won’t be as good as many think and Justin Fields may struggle again this season. Detroit moneyline, hopefully, as a big time underdog.    

Detroit vs Jacksonville | Week 13 – Sunday, Dec. 4

Detroit will hang with Jacksonville. But at the end, the Jags are the much better team. Jacksonville’s defense should be a top ten, if not top five, unit. The offense will improve big time now that Doug Pederson calls the shots. Jacksonville wins and covers. 

Detroit vs Minnesota | Week 14 – Sunday, Dec. 11

This should be a much closer game than many believe. Minnesota is the first or second best team in the division, but Detroit beat the Vikings last season. It was one of two Detroit victories. The Lions do enough to cover. 

Detroit at New York Jets | Week 15 – Sunday, Dec. 18

The Lions will play hard. Detroit just isn’t as good as the New York Jets. Jets quarterback Zach Wilson should take the next step. He’s got decent receivers this season and the defense is much improved. Jets cover the spread. 

Detroit at Carolina | Week 16 – Saturday, Dec. 24

What an interesting matchup. Carolina should send Baker Mayfield under center. It’s difficult to imagine Sam Darnold getting the nod. In any case, the Panthers have some talent but Matt Rhule can’t get the team to play hard. Detroit always plays hard. So the Lions win on the moneyline and cover against the spread. 

Detroit vs Chicago | Week 17 – Sunday, Jan. 1 

Detroit faces their arch nemesis with eyes on a season sweep. The Lions will get it because this happens in Detroit. Right now, the prediction is Lions SU and ATS.
