Betting market: Most of the action had been on the Falcons early in the week, as they moved from -3.5 to as high as -6 at some books. But a reverse line move on the Giants came in on Thursday morning, dropping the line back down.

The Giants, who are 1-5 straight up and 2-4 against the spread this season, are receiving 33% of spread bets as of writing (see live data). Mark Gallant

Trends to know: Matt Ryan has dominated prime time. He’s 19-9 ATS, making him the second-most profitable prime-time quarterback for bettors since he was drafted in 2008. (Russell Wilson has been the best QB in this spot.)

Ryan is 12-4 ATS at home in prime time, covering the last five of such games

Eli Manning has now been listed as an underdog in 13 consecutive games (including Monday). No other quarterback has been listed as an underdog more than 10 times over that span. Evan Abrams
