NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take Carolina. According to latest NFL trends, the underdog is 4-0-1 against the spread in the last five meetings between these two teams, while the road squad is 3-0-1 ATS in the last four meetings. After playing on Monday Night Football, the Bears are coming off a short week of both rest and preparation and also picked up a big win over a divisional rival (the Lions). Now they host a non-divisional foe that has struggled all season in Carolina, which is due to have a good offensive performance. Look for Cam Newton to play better than expected and for the Panthers to get their running game going with Jonathan Stewart as the starter. The Bears will likely cover as the home squad but the Panthers cover the 9.
