The over/under for the Week 7 matchup between the Detroit Lions and Atlanta Falcons is currently 56.5 points, per BettingPros consensus odds.

Betting Impact:

The 56.5 point total is the highest of any game on the Week 7 slate this far. After back-to-back games of being held to 16 points, the Falcons offense erupted for 40 points in a win against Minnesota. A healthy Julio Jones seemed to make all the difference for Matt Ryan and this offense, as Ryan threw for 371 yards and four touchdowns. The Lions are coming off a 34-point performance of their own, and head coach Matt Patricia has likely found a bellcow running back instead of using a committee. Rookie D’Andre Swift ran for 116 yards and two touchdowns and will test the 31st-ranked Falcons defense mightily should he be given the opportunity.
