The NFL season is approaching and as always, Las Vegas is trying to tempt everyone with some interesting odds and futures bets.
Some of them include the Detroit Lions, courtesy of Bovada.
Bovada has quarterback Matthew Stafford as fourth on the odds chart to lead the NFL in passing yards during the 2014 season at 15/2 -- behind just Drew Brees (11/4), Peyton Manning (11/4) and Aaron Rodgers (7/1). He is just ahead of Tom Brady (12/1), Matt Ryan (16/1) and Andrew Luck (18/1).
Reggie Bush and Joique Bell are both longshots to lead the NFL in rushing yards -- each sitting at 100/1. Frankly, consideirng the history of both players and the way the Lions offense will run, taking either one of those odds would not be intelligent.
Meanwhile, Calvin Johnson has the best odds to lead the NFL in receiving yards at 13/5. Behind him are Dez Bryant (15/2), Julio Jones (8/1) and Demaryius Thomas (8/1). Golden Tate also makes an appearance on the odds chart, but at 100/1.
Bovada even offers a special wager on the Lions, offering 15/1 odds on Johnson leading the NFL in receiving and the Lions winning the NFC North.
