DETROIT, MI (ATS Consultants) – The Atlanta Falcons need one more victory to secure home field advantage throughout the playoffs. Will it come tonight when they visit the Detroit Lions at 8:30PM ET?

Last year: Atlanta (+4) over DETROIT, 23-16. Atlanta needs this game for home field throughout the playoffs with a win. Atlanta comes into this game off an impressive 34-0 shutout over the New York Giants. Their defense was outstanding but on the road, they also gave up 30 to Carolina the previous week in 10-point loss. Detroit has lost six in a row so they are just playing for pride. They have allowed 38 to Arizona, 27 to Green Bay, 35 to Indianapolis and 34 to Houston on Thanksgiving Day in their last four games. Their defense has all but given up. Their offense will score some.
