NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take Baltimore. According to latest NFL trends, the Ravens are 4-0 against the spread in their last four playoff games, 4-1 ATS versus a team with a winning record and 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall. The Niners might have the better team on paper but the Ravens are playing their best ball of the season. Since the firing of Cam Cameron and the promotion of Jim Caldwell to offensive coordinator, Joe Flacco is playing his best ball of the season. Since a rough patch in the middle of the season when the team lost Ray Lewis to a triceps injury and cornerback Ladarius Webb to a knee injury, the defense is playing its best ball of the season. And with several switch ups since the start of the postseason, Baltimore's offensive line is playing at its best now, too. This is a fairly even matchup on paper and while the Ravens have the unenviable task of trying to contain Colin Kaepernick, take the points with a team that could win outright.
