Not that they’ve been money at their swank new stadium, but we suppose the three points the Falcons are favoured by over the Cowboys in one of Sunday’s marquee match ups is attributable to the perception of that home-field advantage. The Falcons, after all, have won just once in their past five games, including a sloppy 20-17 loss to Carolina last week. In each of their four losses this season, the Atlanta offence has been held to 17 points or less. The Cowboys, meanwhile, are coming off a big win and cover as 2½-point favourites over the Chiefs ... The Bills are back at home so you know what that means? Yes, the would-be wise guys are loving getting three points from the visiting New Orleans Saints and their high-flying offence. The Bills were by far the most popular pick in the weekly Las Vegas SuperContest, the mega seasonlong tourney that requires an entry fee of $1,500 US. The Bills were selected by 1,182 entrants while he second most popular pick was Jacksonville (minus-3½ vs. the Chargers) taken on 719 entry sheets ... Let’s see how those favourite lovers hold up this weekend with not one, not two but three double-digit faves on the board ... Among those big numbers are the Rams, who are the 11-point pick over Indianapolis) just the second time they’ve been favoured by double-digits since 2004 ... Another of the public teams getting plenty of attention this week are the Patriots, who have been hovering around a touchdown favourite on the road against Denver. By Sunday, that line had jumped to 7½ and if it holds, it will be the first time since 1992 (a span of 210 home games) that the Broncos have been a home dog of 7½ or more … And finally, if you think the home teams have a huge advantage vs. the spread, not to worry, the books are on the case. According to covers.com, home teams have just a slight ATS edge of 64-62-6. Favourites, meanwhile, are 59-65-6.
