The Detroit Lions have received 52% of the bets but just 47% of the money in advance of their Week 7 matchup with the Atlanta Falcons.

Betting Impact:

This scenario is an oddsmaker's dream as they are not susceptible to a big loss of either team wins. What is interesting is that the line moved off the key number of three earlier in the week, and now is at Atlanta -2.5 points (per BettingPros consensus odds). Moving off the key number normally would suggest big sharp play on the underdog, but sportsbooks seem to still have good two-way action despite the lower line.
