We had 7 home dogs on Sunday and how did they fair? 4-3 ATS to extend their record to 12-6 ATS on the year. This week wasn’t as damaging to road favorites as week 2. In week 2, the road dogs went 5-1 ATS. As you should know by now, stay away from betting against home dogs. If you do, pick your battles and proceed with caution.

As I stated before I even got into the picks, I hated this week and that was precisely why. I didn’t see any value in taking the points in road dogs when they were collectively a toss up and you ended up with a mixed bag as the road favorites went 3-4 ATS.

I stayed away from every home dog this week expect one: Steelers (-4) over Raiders. I tried to pick a battle against one home dog this week — and they got me. This game was one that could have been won as the Steelers dominated the 1st half and were holding a 31-21 lead going into the 4th quarter until an Antonio Brown turnover resulted in a Raiders drive that changed the momentum their way.

Week 3 Home Dog Results:

Minnesota Vikings (+7) defeat San Francisco 49ers — 24-13

Tennessee Titans (+3) defeat Detroit Lions — 44-41

Oakland Raiders (+4) defeat Pittsburgh Steelers — 34-31

Arizona Cardinals (+4) defeat Philadelphia Eagles — 27-6

Buffalo Bills (-3) defeat Cleveland Browns — 24-14

Houston Texans (-1.5) defeat Denver Broncos — 31-25

New York Jets (-3) defeat Miami Dolphins — 23-20
