NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take Minnesota. According to latest NFL trends, the Lions are 1-4-2 against the spread in their last seven games versus the Vikings and 1-4-2 ATS in their last seven trips to Minnesota. The Lions are also 1-5 against the spread in their last six division games and 4-11 ATS in their last 15 games versus the NFC. Minnesota hasn’t covered the spread in four straight weeks and has lost three of its last four games. But the Vikings have had a great deal of success versus the Lions over the years and Adrian Peterson should control this game at the line of scrimmage. Look for Minnesota to keep the ball out of Christian Ponder’s hands (especially with Percy Harvin hobbled with an ankle injury) and firmly in the grasp of the league’s leading rusher.
