2013 Detroit Lions Betting OddsDetroit Lions was the biggest disappointment of last season, very low productivity of talented players that they  have. After breaking a fast of 12 years and return to the playoffs in 2011, the expectation was struggling a year to be in the postseason. Well, not quite. Quarterback Matthew Stafford became very close to five thousand meters, Calvin Johnson broke the record for receiving yards in a season, yet the team scored just four wins and 12 losses, eight of them consecutive. What explains this?

A good start is to analyze the performance of quarterback. Almost as many passing yards (4,967 in 2012 and 5,038 in 2011), Stafford threw touchdowns last year's average, only 20 compared to 41, 2011. This fact shows that the main problem with this team: score transformation yards. 6540 were touchdowns to 37 total yards and one TD attack Detroit scored every 177 yards.

One reason for this instability is the running back for the Lions were often very close to the end zone and scored field goals instead of touchdowns. To solve the problem, the Lions were looking for Reggie Bush, one of the best offices available in free agency.


Although the team to prioritize the passage, and Bush should have charged more than what many believe. Offensive coordinator Scott Linehan is famous for always exploit the weaknesses of the defensive schemes, you should definitely explore the holes when the pound rise into double coverage Megatron. Personal attention of fantasy, if you stay healthy, Bush is a great option for your computer, and goes well surely receive many short passes Stafford.

For the other problem of this attack, the lack of a solid with WR Calvin Johnson, Detroit does not seem to have a solution. With the exception of Titus Young, Nate Burleson and the young Ryan Broyles should fight for position. The point is that both suffer to stay healthy, Burleson lost 10 games last year to break a leg and after a promising start Broyles tore his ACL anterior knee.

On defense, the question mark is the defensive line. The outputs of the two holders ED Cliff Avril and Kyle Vanden Bosch, should have an impact on the pass rush of the team in the short term. For the leftmost position, the Lions brought Jason Jones, who was playing in Titans DT. Open the right to act the Freshman Ziggy Ansah, fifth overall pick this year. Despite comparisons to Jason Pierre Paul, lack of NFL experience should weigh, do not wait more than two or three sacks of him this year.

will be up defensive tackles Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley leverage the broad scheme 9 and pressure the quarterback. They combined for 12.5 sacks in 2012, large numbers for two touchdowns. The problem is that both also totaled 15 fouls last year. If Detroit plans to get somewhere, that number should spend at least half. He has also won the secondary reinforcements in theory should come much stronger this betting season. The Lions brought the safety Glover Quin, Houston Texans, to partner with Louis Delmas and used the second overall pick of cornerback Darius Slay promising. The freshman must form a good partnership with Chris Houston, who was very solid player last year.

BSN Sports blog Predictions: Detroit Lions probably make a better campaign in 2013, but think playoffs is another story. 9-7 or 10-6 team, it is now impossible to know whether this will be enough to make the playoffs in the NFC is always difficult.

Odds to win NFC North: +450
Regular Season Win Total: 9 (Over +105)
Props: NFL MVP Odds Matt Stafford 12/1
