NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take Atlanta. According to latest NFL trends, the favorite is 4-1 against the spread in the last five meetings between these two teams, while the road team is 5-2 against the number in the last seven meetings. The Falcons are also 4-1 against the spread in their last five road games and 23-9-1 ATS in their last 33 games following an ATS loss. The Bucs have been the hottest team in the NFL of late, but they’re due for a letdown. Josh Freeman was excellent in the fourth quarter last Sunday versus the Panthers, but he was brutal in the three quarters prior to finding Vincent Jackson on an excellent touchdown pass to force overtime (following Tampa’s two-point conversation). The Bucs can stop the run defensively but they rank dead last in pass defense. The one thing the Falcons can do is throw the ball thanks to Matt Ryan, so look for Atlanta to bounce back after a brutal effort last Sunday versus Arizona.
