ESPN releases Detroit Lions projected win total for 2023
Clay currently has the Lions projected win total set at just 8.3. Here are Clay's projections for each game. When looking at the score projections, you can see that Clay has the Lions finishing with an 8-9 record.
Bottom Line: Ignore the projections
If you are a fan of the Lions, you are probably surprised to see Clay's projection of an 8-9 record in 2023. With that being said, there are a couple of important things to remember. First, this can certainly be considered a “way-too-early” projection as the 2023 NFL Draft has not even taken place. Second, Clay's early win total projections are generally way off and we all know the Lions are going to rack up at least 10 wins in 2023!
Some of this win percentages in the predictions are absolutely bonkers
Is this schedule correct
Lions will go 11-6 🏈
