Sports book's over-under for 2009 Lions wins: five

Saturday, May 16, 2009

Vegas doesn't appear to share Kevin Smith's optimism about playoffs for the 2009 Lions. has set the Lions' 2009 win total at five games, the lowest of any NFL team. (Did they see the Raiders' draft???) And if you take the under, you've gotta bet $130 to win $100; even money only for the over. "This team had the worst season in the history of football and they aren't going to be that much better this year," said spokesman Dave Staley. "They have some great talent like Calvin Johnson but they are still a long ways from being competitive." Sounds like a challenge to me.
