The spread for the Week 7 matchup between the Detroit Lions and Atlanta Falcons has changed from Falcons -3 to -2.5, per BettingPros consensus odds.

Betting Impact:

In the world of football betting, not all half-point line moves are created equal. Atlanta moving from -3 to -2.5 is very significant and suggests that the Lions have been heavily backed so far this early in the week. The Lions two wins have come on the road, so bettors likely believe winning in Atlanta is something they are capable of. However, Atlanta appears the healthiest they have been in quite some time and are coming off their first win of the season under interim head coach Raheem Morris. Thus, it will be interesting to see if there will be buyback on the favored Falcons later in the week.
