It’s hard to find anyone around these parts feeling optimistic about the Detroit Lions heading into Week 6′s matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars. But one person apparently believes in the team enough to wager a $2 million bet with the Lions and Miami Dolphins winning on Sunday.
The Action Network reports the two-team, money line parlay was placed on DraftKings. It also represents the biggest wager for this Sunday’s games.
For a refresher, the Lions are 1-3, blowing a double-digit lead in each of those losses. Detroit’s coach and general manager possess two of the hottest seats in the NFL. The Lions have the league’s worst run defense and are rolling without cornerback Desmond Trufant in the lineup once again. If sticking with the Lions wasn’t enough of a gamble, the Dolphins haven’t done much to instill anything resembling consistent confidence. Miami has a favorable matchup with the New York Jets, though, so there’s something there at least. But as a package?
