NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take Detroit. According to latest NFL trends, the Seahawks are 1-6 against the spread in their last seven games in Week 8 and 9-20-1 ATS in their last 30 road games. On the other side, the Lions are 9-2 against the spread in their last 11 games in October and 5-1 ATS in their last six games after scoring less than 15 points in their previous game. At some point Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson are going to have big games. They’re due, and while Seattle’s secondary is one of the best in the NFL, the Lions won’t be held to just a single touchdown today. Look for the Seahawks’ offense to struggle against a Detroit defense that played well Monday night in Chicago, and for the Lions to cover the 1.
