Detroit Lions, losers in 24 straight games, favorites to win against Washington Commanders

DETROIT — If the betting odds hold, the Detroit Lions will be in uncharted territory Sunday at home against the Washington Commanders.

After playing in 24 consecutive games as an underdog, the longest active streak in the NFL, the Lions are currently a 2 1/2-point favorite against the Commanders, according to Caesars Sportsbook.

The Lions’ streak is the team’s longest in the Super Bowl era.

The last time Detroit was a favorite was on November 22, 2020, when they were a 1-point favorite on the road against quarterback PJ Walker and the Carolina Panthers. The Lions lost 20-0.

The New York Giants have the second-longest active losing streak with 15 straight games. They are currently 2 1/2-point favorites for Sunday’s game against the Panthers, according to Caesars Sportsbook.

Detroit (0-1) is looking to redeem itself after a 38-35 loss to Philadelphia in the season opener. The Lions have won five of their last six games against Washington.
