NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take St. Louis. According to latest NFL trends, the Packers are 1-4 against the spread in their last five road games, 1-4 ATS in their last five games versus the NFC and 2-5 ATS in their last seven games overall. On the other side, the Rams are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games versus the NFC and 6-1 ATS in their last seven games overall. The Packers are coming off an impressive win but that has led to oddsmakers inflating the line based on public perception. Remember, last week was the first time that the Green Bay offense truly looked in sync and St. Louis has been tough defensively all season. Granted, the Rams’ offense won’t be able to keep up in a shootout but chances are St. Louis will keep the game close, grind out the clock and try to win it in the end. Take the 5 points.
