NFL FREE PICK: Take Tennessee. According to latest NFL trends, the Vikings are 1-5 against the spread in their last six home games and 1-4 ATS in their last five games following a win. They’re also 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games following an ATS win, 6-13-2 ATS in their last 21 games on fieldturf and 3-11 ATS in their last 14 games after allowing less than 90 yards rushing in their previous game. The Titans, meanwhile, are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games on fieldturf and 20-7 ATS in their last 27 games after scoring less than 15 points in their previous game. The Titans finally got Chris Johnson and their running game going last week and Matt Hasselbeck should run an effective game plan willing subbing for the injured Jake Locker. The Vikings have played very well and their 3-1 record has been well-deserved. But 5.5 is a lot of points for two teams that aren’t too far off in terms of overall talent. Look for Tennessee to keep this game within a field goal.
