NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take Houston. According to latest NFL trends, the Bengals are 0-5 against the spread in their last five games versus the Texans and 2-6-1 ATS in their last nine games versus a team with a winning record. They're also 1-4 ATS in their last five Saturday games and 1-6 ATS in their last seven games in January. The Texans, meanwhile, are 3-0-2 ATS in their last five games in January and 18-7-2 ATS in their last 27 games versus the AFC. Look for the Texans to run the ball effectively with Arian Foster and get their offense back on track after struggling the past two weeks. Defensively, coordinator Wade Phillips will likely scheme to take away A.J. Green and limit the big play. The Texans might not make a deep postseason run but they should advance to the Divisional Round with a win today.
