The optimism in the air for the Detroit Lions is a bit uncanny considering the year they had in 2021. They lost a ton of games in the early going and even encountered some incredible bad luck along the way. Justin Tucker netted a 66-yard field as time expired on the heels of some bad calls made by the referees, and the confidence for the Lions was shot. HBO’s Hard Knocks traveled to Detroit to chronicle the Lions this summer, and Dan Campbell has really sold himself to this team. They believe. They believe they can win. They belong.

Jared Goff has the most to prove on this team. Matt Stafford went to the Rams and enjoyed a championship season while Jared Goff was laid in turmoil. He should come into this season with a very motivated agenda.

They open up against another team getting a similar hype, but this team has even loftier expectations. Philadelphia expects to win the NFC East and contend for a title behind Jalen Hurts and company. Somewhat of an unexpected season last year has the Eagle fans excited for 2022. Fellow Alabama standout DeVonta Smith help bolster the offense to the 14th best in the NFL.

Its week one in the NFL and this is a great time to head on over to the BetMGM Sportsbook and take advantage of their welcome promotion. When you sign up using the bonus code VIBONUS, the BetMGM Sportsbook will provide a risk free bet on your first wager up to $1,000. If your first bet is graded as a loser, BetMGM will deposit the original wager amount into your betting account by way of free bets. Free bet stakes are not included in your winnings.

The Lions opened up as underdogs of four points. The opening line as gone up and down mainly between 3.5 and four. The BetMGM Sportsbook has the Eagles laying four points on the road in what should be a raucous Lions crowd. Both the Lions and Eagles are priced at -110. The money line has the Eagles at -200. A $100 wager on the spread for both teams would net a profit of $90.91.

Jalen Hurts is still currently on his rookie deal and increasing his 26 touchdown 2021 season and 9-8 record could provide a massive bargaining chip when his deal is up. The Eagles lost the wild card game 31-15 in Tampa last season, but with hopes of winning the division could host a playoff game this season.

The Lions won just 3 games last season coupled with 13 losses. They also finished a game in a tie. While the season was a disaster, they did go 3-3 in the final six games.  The confidence has been carried into this season, but the reality is that the NFC North is tough division. Annual tradition states that two matchups against the Packers and Vikings await them.

The BetMGM Sportsbook will have all the week one lines to start the season, but they will be a great destination to place all your bets throughout the season and playoffs. BetMGM will have all the spreads, money lines, totals, props and even live bets available. Remember to head to BetMGM and sign up using the VIBONUS code and your first wager is risk free up to $1,000.

Until next time, enjoy the ride.
