Free Agency is the big news of the day but that doesn’t mean other activities around the game didn’t see movement. Which fringe activity am I referring to? Betting.
Pro Football Weekly put up a list of all the win totals set by MGM Resorts International that were released today and the Lions sit at 7.5 wins. For the purpose of the bet, bettors are asked to select “over” or “under”.
I was somewhat surprised to see a number less than eight considering the hype surrounding the Lions but MGM clearly sees it differently. The “over” is set at even money while it would take a $120 bet to win $100 on the “under”.
The Patriots and Packers lead the field with an over/under set at 11.5 wins while the Carolina Panthers bring up the rear at 4.5 wins.
