Ya gotta love kickers ... because Detroit Lions punter Sam Martin hit the bars with David Arquette last night and predicted he'd make the "winning punt" in next year's Super Bowl.
The two were leaving Hooray Henry's in L.A. when they united in support of the Lions -- with Arquette so confident in his pal, he PUT $500 that Detroit would take the Lombardi Trophy next season.
We're guessing they'd been drinking before this footage was shot ... but, hey, they might have a point ... if the Lions can land the right coach, right??
Fun Fact -- Martin hit a 72-yard punt this season ... and says he once kicked a 100-yarder in practice.
