NFL FREE PICK: Take New York. According to latest NFL trends, Cleveland is 1-5 before playing Cincinnati at home. Giants are 6-1 ATS L7 in Week 5. The Giants (2-2) are coming off a tough Sunday night loss to the Eagles, while the Browns fell last Thursday at Baltimore by 7. The Giants might be without WR Hakeem Nicks (foot), which just means that they will rely more on their running game led by RBs Ahamad Bradshaw and Andre Brown. The Giants run defense will be prepared to take on rookie Trent Richardson, who has rushed for 222 yards and three touchdowns. The problem for Cleveland will come in their pass protection, as they attempt to protect Brandon Weeden against one of the best groups of DEs in the game.
