NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take Atlanta. According to latest NFL trends, the favorite is 4-0 against the spread in the last four meetings and the Raiders are 1-4 ATS in their lat five road games. Unless the Falcons come out of the gates flat like they did against the Panthers a couple of weeks ago, they should roll against Oakland on Sunday. The Raiders’ secondary has struggled thus far and they have zero pass rush. Matt Ryan should have plenty of time to find open receivers and the Raiders can’t possibly cover Julio Jones, Roddy White and Tony Gonzalez for an entire game. Defensively, the Falcons’ secondary has been excellent and while their run defense has been shaky, they’ll key on Darren McFadden. This game may be close early on but the Falcons will wear Oakland down and eventually pull away in the second half.
