For the first time since 1993, the Detroit Lions will host a playoff game.

After winning the NFC North, they'll welcome a familiar face in Matthew Stafford, along with the Los Angeles Rams, on Super Wild Card Weekend.

But, what about winning the whole damn thing? Let's find out what the oddsmakers think about their chances.

Lions odds to win Super Bowl 58

The Lions' odds to win the Super Bowl are set at +2200 at FanDuel Sportsbook, which is eighth amongst all teams and fourth in the NFC behind the 49ers, Cowboys, and Eagles. When translated to implied probability, the Lions have a 4.35% chance of winning the Super Bowl.

If you were to bet $100 on them to lift the Vince Lombardi Trophy, you'd win a profit of $2,200 if they're able to achieve the feat.

Will the Lions Win the Super Bowl?

There's no doubt the Lions have the coaching staff and the offense to win a championship. Their offense is inside the top eight in the NFL in EPA/Play and success rate while also third in the league in yards per play, averaging 5.9 yards per snap.

Jared Goff also knows what it takes to lead a team to the Super Bowl, falling just shy against the New England Patriots when he was part of the Los Angeles Rams a few years back.

Where concern lies for Lions' fans is their defense, which some would say is the worst amongst all playoff teams. They enter the playoffs allowing 5.5 yards per snap this season, which ranks 26th in the NFL and is the worst mark amongst all teams still alive in the race for the Super Bowl.

The good news is C.J. Gardner-Johnson is back in the lineup after missing the majority of the season with an injury. If he can provide a spark to that unit and their offense keeps firing on all cylinders, they can be a legitimate Super Bowl candidate.

Of course, before they even think about the Super Bowl, they need to get past the Rams on Saturday night.

Rams vs. Lions odds

The Lions are 3.5-point favorites against the Rams with the total set at 51.5. Based on their moneyline odds of -172, the Lions have a 63.24% chance of beating Los Angeles and advancing to the Divisional Round.

Who Will the Lions Play in the Divisional Round?

The No. 3 seed in the playoffs has arguably the widest array of outcomes when it comes to who, and where, they'll be playing in the Divisional Round.

If the Lions get past the Rams in the first round, they could either head to Dallas to take on the Cowboys, or there is the potential of hosting another playoff game if the Cowboys lose to the Packers. In that scenario, the Lions would welcome the winner of the Eagles vs. Buccaneers in the Divisional round with the Packers heading to San Francisco to face the 49ers.
