NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take Oakland. According to latest NFL trends, the Raiders are 10-3 against the spread in their last 13 games in Week 11 and 17-7-1 ATS in their last 25 games following an ATS loss. The Saints are also 1-4 ATS in their last five games after scoring more than 30 points in their previous games and 2-5 ATS in their last seven games after accumulating more than 250 yards passing in their previous game. There’s always value in home underdogs and the Saints’ offense isn’t as potent on the road as it is inside the Superdome. Oakland’s defense is brutal but Carson Palmer and the Raiders’ passing game has been firing on all cylinders of late. Look for Oakland to keep the game within a field goal.
