Falcons vs Lions Saturday NFL Online Betting Odds
Atlanta Falcons: Headed for a 13-win season
With just two games left on the schedule, the Falcons can grab their 13th win of the season on Saturday against the Lions. Atlanta's two losses on the season have come on the road, which is why they are trying to secure the top seed in the NFC playoffs, which provides them home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. Atlanta should have no trouble knocking off the Lions this weekend on the road.
Detroit Lions: Trying to avoid an 11-loss season
Detroit enters this game with a 4-10 overall record and just 2-4 at home. Detroit is also in the midst of a six-game losing streak, having not won since defeating Jacksonville on the road 31-14 on November 4. When their losing streak began, the Lions were sitting at 4-4 on the season and still had playoff aspirations. Saturday should be a tough game for the Lions as the high-powered Falcons come to town.
As the season winds down in the NFL, the Falcons are just one win away from clinching home-field advantage in the NFC playoffs. They should be able to secure that win on Saturday when they visit the Lions in Detroit. At Bet365.com, the Falcons are -4 (-110) favorites to beat the Lions. This should be an easy game to win for the Falcons, which is why we will take Atlanta and the spread on Saturday.
