It's all Lions on the spread, at 86% of tickets/91% of money. Detroit moneyline is popular, too, taking 71% of tickets/89% of dollars.

The total climbed from 44.5 to 45.5 Monday, then to 46 Tuesday and 47 Wednesday. This morning, it rose another notch to 47.5, with 60% of tickets/68% of cash on the Over.

UPDATE 6 P.M. ET WEDNESDAY: The Lions are up a tick to -4 from a -3.5 opener in TwinSpires' NFL odds Week 13 market. It's all Detroit at the moment, with spread tickets beyond 2.5/1 and spread money 6/1.

"The Lions are the biggest liability of the slate so far. We're not seeing much buyback on the Saints yet," Lucas said.

The total inched from 45 to 45.5, with 54% of early tickets/61% of early money on the Over.

UPDATE 10 P.M. ET SUNDAY: Detroit is having its best season in forever, but still went out and lost on Thanksgiving. After closing as 8.5-point home chalk, the Lions (8-3 SU/7-4 ATS) trailed Green Bay 23-6 at halftime and fell 29-22.

New Orleans (5-6 SU/2-8-1 ATS) dipped below .500 again and remains one of the league's worst spread-covering outfits. The Saints were 1.5-point favorites at Atlanta in Week 12 and lost 24-15.

The Lions-Saints spread is stable at Detroit -3.5 in The SuperBook's NFL odds Week 13 market. The total quickly moved from 43.5 to 44/44.5 this evening.

"New Orleans looks like it's about out of players, and the Saints looked bad today against Atlanta," Michaelson said. "It'll be interesting to see how the public reacts to Detroit after it looked so bad on Thanksgiving. We bumped this from [the lookahead of] 3 to 3.5, with all of New Orleans' injuries."
