Hmmm, something fishy about this line - Falcons rock the offense, while the Loins absolutely stink. But just 4 points?

Do the Falcons really need this game? I think the sharps think "NO", and I think I agree.....

Lions +4 - for the small - - what the hell M/L too, might as well go down swinging.....

Sounds good!  Atlanta looks too easy.  Lions might just get some love from the ref's Saturday night.  Why not?  Everybody will be riding Atlanta.  Lions are due...DETROIT ML!  All it takes is Stafford to have a decent game.

Atl.need this game for home field thru out the playoffs,but just

because a team needs a win,doesn't mean they will get it.

I am feeling the Lions here in this spot,at home,and who have played

the Falcons tough in the past.

Taking the Lions plus the points here.

Atl wins easy here and the debate of resting players in wk 17 arise.But whether that discussion is a serious one in the Falcon locker room,front office or even in Mike Smiths head it won't be seen this week against the totally dysfuntional team known as the Lions.The #1 seed gets locked up without it being in doubt at any point in the game.

My inner wise guy first liked the Lions in this spot. They have played everyone tough at home, and have lost their last 3 home games (33-35 to Indy, 31-34 to Houston, and 20-24 to Green Bay).   But after further review, I've decided to fade myself. There are far too many injuries for me to support a play on the Lions.  Plus, they are playing for practically nothing. They are obviously not in playoff contention and beating Atlanta wouldn't really be playing "spoiler" because the Falcons have already clinched the division and have a pretty tight grip on home field advantage. I'd much rather back the Lions when they host their division rival Bears next week, where I know there is a mutual hatred for each other, and there is a great chance they will be able to knock the Bears out of the playoffs with a win.   

Detroit's wide receiving corps is absolutely decimated with injuries (no Broyles and obviously Titus Young has effectively been kicked off the team), Brandon Petigrew is also questionable and wasn't able to suit up last week in the embarrassing loss to Arizona. And what has quietly gone under the radar is that Nick Fairly, their other stud defensive tackle, has been placed on the IR due to a shoulder injury suffered in the Arizona game. Delmas, one of the leaders in their secondary, is also listed as questionable. The Lions are simply too banged up and won't be motivationally challenged enough to defend their home turf this Saturday night. Not to mention, their home field advantage isn't really that much of an edge given Atlanta is a dome team. If this were outdoors on a grass surface like Carolina from 2 weeks ago, thats a different story.  

I am sure its a public bet, but I know Atlanta is the better team...I know they are the healthier team.  And I know they are the team with the better momentum (coming off a statement game against the Giants).  The Lions are coming off an embarrassing loss to the Cardinals.  And their offensive gameplan will be no mystery this Saturday...Lets heave the ball up to Megatron, and hope he breaks Jerry Rice's single season receiving yards record. 

I think Atlanta locks up home field advantage this Saturday Night.

 My thoughts exactly Sammy, Atlanta is not letting up until they have home field and first round bye sewn up

Lions seem to have quit on their coach. You would have to think they called  it a season after that Arizona loss last week.

Atlanta - 20                                      Detroit - 14

Falcons -3.5                                 under 50.5

4 wins at this point in the season simply shows this club does not know how to win. They are still the same old Detroit Lions only a little sugar coated with a few talented players. Aside from the Cardinals, all of their losses were by 10 or less points. If they're a home dog of <5 points you might as well take the FAV. I will.

Falcons by default - Under

Happy Holidays amigos

couldnt have said it any better my self just to many injuries and if pettigrew cant go the lions second best receiver is tony scheffler and behind him its a toss between durham and thomas and on the defense side no jacob lacey ,corey williams, nick fairley and delmas been hurt all year and missed the last two games

atlanta -3.5 and under 50.5

Chew on this :

Reason for the off line............

1. Teams beating the SB champs are 18-30 ATS (37%) the following week.........

2, DETROIT ::::Teams who lose by 30+ pts or more ATS and homedoge +3 pts or more the following week are 12-1 (92%) the past 10 years

TRENDS ARE MADE TO BE BROKEN!

DIRTY BIRDS!!!

That's a good point! But the lions are far from one of the worst teams in the NFC. When healthy, they actually have one of the highest scoring offenses in the league. They have been on the unfortunate end of some really close games. With some more discipline (no stupid penalties), better clock management (run the ball to hang on to leads), and a BETTER SECONDARY, this team would definitely be in playoffs. So despite their record, i actually think they are a decent teeam. Unfortunately, they fell short this year, and I don't like their chances of containing Atlanta with that banged up defense.  I also don't think Stafford will be lighting up the scoreboard with half the receiving corps missing. Getting Petigrew back would certainly help their chances, but he's still questionable as far as I know. 

Maybe I'm dead wrong about this one, but I willl probably be on Detroit next week when they play the Bears. I think they will be much more motivated next week!!

Good luck
