I don't know alecboyh, I'm gonna go with the logic that the NFC is a tougher conference than the AFC and that's why its ATL-3.5 and Pats-14.  I'm mean seriously if the Jags played ATL I think ATL would be favored by double digits easily. Remember its either the Pats or Pit that comes out the AFC majority of the decade. The NFC has had 4 out of the 5 last Superbowls. I'd be on DET if it was a thursday night game  cause those always seem to scream underdog.  But lately however the favorites have covered the last few thurday and monday night games. Broncos, Titans, patriots, begals.  All favorites all covered.  That underdog crap is for the first part of the season now that these teams are on the scouting report the better teams are covering because of the real refs are actually calling the games not the replacement killers earlier this year.   But this is Saturday night, not thurday night not monday night. There is no rest issues for these teams. To be honest with you I'm guilty of betting favorites a lot bro.  Then you have some bettors who mostly pick dogs.  This is the ideal spot to go against the favorite....but not this time of year its about to be playoff time.  In otherwords don't let the sportsbook psyche you out of picking the clearly superior team in every category- ATL-3. 

I can't tell you how many cappers were really trying to persuade themselves to take the eagles last week against a red hot Bengals team.  With no defensive coordinator, no lashawn Mccoy, no vick no nothing. take the points take the points,

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.

I don't think it's the fact that Atlanta "needs" this game... But they actually want it too. Matt Ryan called this "a huge game for us". They don't play great away from home so home field is big for them. I don't see Atlanta running away with this game because the Lions will keep it somewhat close with some big plays to Johnson.

Atlanta will have a letdown on their defense after shutting out the Giants. But I see their offense easily moving the ball.

ATL -3.5 and OVER 50.5
