It’s hard to find anyone around these parts feeling optimistic about the Detroit Lions in the Week 66 matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars. But one person clearly believes in the team that a $ 2 million bet with the Lions (-159) is enough And The Miami Dolphins (-385) won on Sunday.
The Action Network reported a two-team, money line parley was placed on draft lines. It also represents the biggest bet for this Sunday’s games.
For a refresher, the Lions are 1-3, leading by double digits in each of those losses. The coach and general manager of Detroit has two of the NFL’s hottest seats. The Lions have the league’s worst run defense and are returning once again with debutant Trummond in the lineup. If living with the Lions was not quite a gamble, the Dolphins have not done much to produce anything that is consistently confident. Miami has a favorable matchup with the New York Jets, however, at least there is some. But as a package?
The Lions and Dolphins are jointly 24-48-1 since 2018.
This is not the first time the Lions have drawn attention to the gambling community this season. The loss of the season opening in Detroit’s series caused the team a $ 175,000 loss to cover the 2.5-point spread. The Lions went to a 23–6 lead in the fourth quarter but eventually lost 27–23. It is hard to imagine that anyone would want to redo themselves based on recent results, but here we are.

The Lions and Jaguars will meet Jacksonville at 1 pm Sunday afternoon. Follow along with the action on this link.
Detroit’s offensive line is at full strength to top it for the first time this season. Frank Rugwen was cleared to play after suffering a back injury during Wednesday’s practice. It will be interesting to see how the group works; Jonah Jackson has played two game apps at both guard spots while Tyrell Crosby has put it together in the right tackle.
Jacksonville will tackle Josh Allen, without star edge, and quarterback Jake Luton, receiver Dade Westbrook, cornerback Luc Barco, defensive tackle Abry Jones and defensive tackle Daniel AQL. Receiver DJ Charak is active after entering as a game-time decision with an ankle injury.
For the first time, the Lions Offensive Line with full force approved to play against the Jaguars with Frank Rugwen
