EDTShareTweetShareShare2019 Detroit Lions gambling odds: Lions favored in just 2 of first 15 gamesBrad Rempel-USA TODAY SportsNow that teams are entering Organized Team Activities with a pretty good understanding of where each roster stands, Vegas is starting to take notice and begin their preparation for 2019 NFL regular season betting lines.We already know that Vegas has set the bar low for overall wins for the Detroit Lions. The current over/under stands at just 6.5 total wins for the season, and Lions fans don’t particularly agree with such low standards.But how do the Lions match up to each of their opponents? CG Technology released their lines for every single NFL game from Week 1 to Week 16 (the final week is always excluded), and the outlook doesn’t look good for Detroit. Here’s a week-by-week breakdown:Week 1: at Cardinals (Pick)Week 2: vs. Chargers (Los Angeles by 4)Week 3: at Eagles (Philadelphia by 8)Week 4: vs. Chiefs (Kansas City by 7)Week 6: at Packers (Green Bay by 7.5)Week 7: vs. Vikings (Minnesota by 1.5)Week 8: vs. Giants (Lions by 3)Week 9: at Raiders (Oakland by 3)Week 10: at Bears (Chicago by 8)Week 11: vs. Cowboys (Dallas by 2.5)Week 12: at Washington (Washington by 2)Week 13: vs. Bears (Chicago by 3.5)Week 14: at Vikings (Minnesota by 8)Week 15: vs. Buccaneers (Lions by 2.5)Week 16: at Broncos (Denver by 4.5)Yep, the Lions are favored in just two games this year. And it’s probably safe to say that if the Week 17 line against the Packers was on the board, Green Bay would be favored in that game, too.What’s even more surprising is how high some of these lines are. Detroit is at least a seven-point underdog in five games this year, including once at home (vs. Chiefs). It’s not exactly a flattering look at the Lions, especially when you see them as underdogs or evens against a couple of bottom-tier teams last year (Broncos Color Rush T.J. Hockenson Jersey , Raiders, Cardinals). Of course, these are all likely to change wildly as the season goes on. At this point, we only think we know anything about these teams, but undoubtedly our perceptions will change once the teams actually take the field. But for now, the Lions are very clearly seen as a bottom-tier team. Dan Orlovsky has never been shy in his support of his former teammate Matthew Stafford. The two made up the Detroit Lions’ quarterback depth chart for three straight years from 2014 to 2016. There may not be a player that knows Stafford better than Orlovsky. So it’s little surprise that Orlovsky came running to support Stafford after the Lions quarterback has come under fire for Detroit’s lackluster offensive performance over the past three games. In Stafford’s most recent game against the Bears, he threw two interceptions, completed just 59.5 percent of passes, and averaged a mere 6.5 yards per passing attempt. Still Cheap T.J. Hockenson Jersey , Orlovsky categorized Stafford’s play as “very good.” First of all, as much as Orlovsky wants to claim he’s being “100% unbiased” that is simply impossible. No one comes without bias, and hanging around Stafford for years has certainly made him vulnerable of showing favoritism towards his buddy. That being said, Orlovsky’s viewpoint still carries value. Indeed, there aren’t a lot of people who know the offense better than Dan-O and he certainly knows the reads a quarterback needs to go through. And as for his conclusion that receivers aren’t winning man-to-man matchups, there’s some objective evidence to support those claims:Of course, there’s plenty of evidence to the contrary, as well. Stafford was 18th in DYAR according to Football Outsiders this week, and his PFF grade over the past three weeks has been bad. The truth T.J. Hockenson Jersey Womens , as always, probably lies somewhere in the middle. Stafford is far from the Lions’ biggest problems right now, but he certainly shoulders some of the blame.Congrats to Zach Zenner, who not only has a job with the Lions again, but has Baby 2.0 on the way: If you’re still harping on Matthew Stafford getting cut or traded, Dave Birkett sets the record straight and shows why it’s never going to happen in the next year or two. Did you miss not having Chris Spielman on the broadcast last week? Here he is breaking down three key plays from the Bears game: Matt Patricia told the media on Monday that they are not currently considering letting another coach or coordinator go at the moment.File this under “stat that probably means nothing, but is still interesting” Former Lions legend Lem Barney is suing local pizza chain Happy’s Pizza for discrimination.
