The most popular bet in Week 1 is the Lions to cover against the Chiefs

Bettors can’t wait for the Detroit Lions to pay off.

Last offseason, the Lions were one of the most bet teams in the futures market, whether it was taking on Detroit to win the division or Dan Campbell to be the league’s coach of the year. NFL. It didn’t go exactly as they hoped, due to the Lions’ slow start to the season. That didn’t deter Lions fans.

This season, bettors are excited to face the Lions against the defending Super Bowl champions on the night they raise a banner.

The highest bet team at BetMGM for Week 1 of the regular season is the Lions as a 6.5 point underdog against the Kansas City Chiefs.

That says a lot. The Chiefs are a popular team among bettors. Patrick Mahomes is a big name player and Kansas City is coming off a Super Bowl victory. On top of that, the Chiefs will celebrate this title with their fans at the regular season opener on Thursday night.

And punters still can’t get enough of the Lions.

Detroit finished very well last season, not cashing in on a division title ticket or Campbell being the top coach, but they won eight of their last 10. Detroit then had a solid offseason, patching a few holes on defense and adding some fun plays. in the draft. The Lions enter this season as betting favorites to win the NFC North.

However, the Chiefs are still going to be very good this season. The 6.5-point spread is a lot, and if the Lions can cover (or win?) that’ll be a pretty good sign that they can be a contender this season.

Many bettors will be rooting for this outcome.
