NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take Baltimore. According to latest NFL trends, the road team is 5-1 against the spread in the last six meetings between these two teams, while the Ravens are 7-1-1 against the number versus a team with a winning record. The Texans are 1-4-1 ATS in their lat six games in October and 2-5-1 ATS in their last eight games in Week 7. The loses of Ray Lewis and Ladarius Webb will certainly hurt but the Ravens have enough depth to keep things close. Look for Joe Flacco to step up and raise the level of his play versus a Houston defense that was torched for six touchdowns by Aaron Rodgers last week. The Ravens will keep this game close so take the 6.5 points.
