After the Atlanta Falcons' 34-0 dismantling of the New York Giants last week, early betting for this Sunday's game between the Atlanta Falcons and the Detroit Lions have already increased by a full point.

The blowout win, combined with the Lions 38-10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals have almost 70 percent of bettors picking the Falcons to cover. With this early action, the line, which opened up with the Falcons as a three point road favorite against the Lions, the Falcons have moved anywhere from a four to a four and a half point favorite according to OddsShark.com.

In addition to the spread, the total points has also seen some slight movement since the line opened. After starting off with a total of 51 points, the number has dropped slightly to 50-1/2 points for the game.

The Falcons and Lions will play Sunday night at 8:30 pm live from Ford Field in Detroit, MI.
