Lions vs Falcons pick against the spread
Will the real Atlanta Falcons, please stand up? After getting beat badly all season long, Matt Ryan and the Falcons responded with a big win over Minnesota. Luckily for the Falcons, they are playing an equally unimpressive team in the Detroit Lions this week. The Falcons were posted as 1-point favorites. The sharps jumped on this game early and the betting line jumped to 3 points, although only 51 percent of the bets are on the Falcons in this game. This is a perfect example of bettors overreacting to a victory.
The Vikings are awful and they were without Dalvin Cook. This made for an easy win for the Falcons, although the defense still has many issues. The Falcons are 6-21 ATS in their last 27 games after allowing more than 250 yards passing in their previous game. That will be an issue against Matt Stafford and the Lions.
Look at the Lions
The Lions only beat the Jaguars, but they have good things from that game to build on. The biggest thing is the performance of D’Andre Swift who amassed more rushing yards in the Jaguars game than he had in his first three games combined. Swift and Adrian Peterson combined for 156 yards and three scores in the win. That rushing attack opens up the passing attack and takes the pressure off the defense. The defense responded by forcing turnovers and completely shutting down the running game.
The Falcons do not respond well after a high scoring game and their home field advantage is non-existent. The Falcons are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games as a home favorite and they are 2-10 ATS in their last 12 games after scoring more than 30 points in their previous game. It is not the time to buy into the Falcons, instead, bet on the Lions.
