NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take St. Louis. According to latest NFL trends, the underdog is 5-0 against the spread in the last five meetings between these two teams. The Rams are also 4-0 against the number in their last four games in Week 8, 4-0 ATS versus a team with a winning record and 6-2 ATS in their last eight games overall. While the Rams haven’t covered in all seven of their games, they’ve kept games close until the fourth quarter nearly every week. Their biggest issue is their red zone offense but New England has had issues in pass coverage the past few weeks. If Sam Bradford can connect with a few deep passes to put St. Louis in scoring range, the Rams should be able to keep this game within a touchdown.
