Let’s also note that 3-0 non-division home teams in Game Four of the regular season are 31-4 SU and 25-10 ATS, including 11-1 SU and ATS versus an opponent off a SU and ATS win. New Orleans head coach Sean Payton is 11-0 SU and ATS at home since 2011, while the Saints are 11-1 ATS non-division home favorites versus an opponent off a win.
Miami also finds a lot of technical support, including the fact that the Dolphins are a perfect 7-0 ATS versus non-conference foes over the last two seasons. The Dolphins also apply to several technical situations of ours, including 17-1 ATS and 23-4 ATS angles. Miami arrives in town with a lot of confidence, together with a perfect 3-0 record after last week’s impressive 27-23 come-from-behind win over the Falcons.
