NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take New York. According to latest NFL trends, the Giants are 6-1 against the spread in their last games versus the 49ers, who are 4-11-2 against the number in their last 17 games following a straight up win of over more than 14 points. New York is usually a solid bet as an underdog. Granted, the Giants failed to cover as a 4-point road dog last year versus the 49ers in the regular season, but New York returned to San Fran and knocked off the Niners in the NFC title game. The Giants could get Hakeem Nicks (knee/foot, questionable) back from injury this week, which would be huge for their offense. But even if they don’t, 6.5 is a lot of points for a matchup that could really go either way. While San Francisco has one of the top defenses in the league, New York’s passing game can put points on anyone. Look for the Giants’ front four to drum up pressure on Alex Smith and keep this game close.
