Bet on Falcons vs Lions

Published on December 21st, 2012 10:43 pm EST
The 12-2 Atlanta Falcons will head to Detroit to do battle against the 4-10 Detroit Lions on Saturday night.

Both of these teams had high hopes heading into the 2012 campaign. One team overperformed, while one team (the Lions) drastically underperformed.

The Falcons are looking to finish with the league's best record (they are currently tied with the Houston Texans for the league's best record), while the Lions are simply looking to play spoiler at this point.

The Falcons are 5-2-0 on the road this year, while the Lions are a terrible 2-4-0 at home.

The Falcons are coming off of a sublime 34-0 win over the New York Giants last week, while the Lions are looking to salvage some pride and reverse the trend of six straight losses. The Lions' season hit a low point last weekend when they were humiliated by the Arizona Cardinals in a 38-10 defeat.

As you can probably imagine, the Falcons are favored in the Saturday Night Football match-up against the Lions. Here are the current betting odds:

Atlanta Falcons, -4 1/2
Detroit Lions, +4 1/2


Atlanta Falcons, -210
Detroit Lions, +175

Over/Under 51 points

Over 51 points, -105
