In a special Christmas time edition of Saturday night football, the Atlanta Falcons (12-2) try to lock up home field against the Detroit Lion (4-10) Saturday night at 8:30ET. NFL odds are found at Top Bet sportsbook.
The biggest knock against Falcons earlier in the year was that they really hadn’t beaten anyone impressive. Last week’s 34-0 drubbing of the defending Super Bowl Champs should put that to rest. The Falcons are now 12-2 SU and 8-5-1 ATS for the season. Their only losses came on the road in hostile division territories New Orleans and Carolina. They have covered in only two of their last six games.
The Detroit Lions are finishing off a disappointing season. They have lost six in a row, including an embarrassing lost at home to the Cardinals last week. The Lions are now 4-10 SU and 5-9 ATS, and have lost five of their last six against the number.
Atlanta is a 3 ½ point road favorite. Typically in the NFL, teams never look as good or as bad as they do in the previous week. Look for that to continue and Detroit has the talent to keep this close. To take the Lions +3 ½ Click Here.
