Of the 53 BettingPros experts that have weighed in on the Week 7 matchup between the Detroit Lions and Atlanta Falcons, 57% are siding with the Falcons as 2.5 point home favorites.

Betting Impact:

Before last week, the Falcons were in disarray as a usually potent offense suddenly had trouble scoring points and the team had just fired head coach Dan Quinn. However, after a 40-23 drubbing of the Vikings under interim head coach Raheem Morris, the Falcons are suddenly getting the majority of the betting action. Interestingly, more of our experts are on Detroit's moneyline however with 53% taking the Lions' +115 moneyline odds. In addition, 64% expect a shootout by taking the over of 55 points.
