NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take Oakland. According to latest NFL trends, the Bengals are 1-4-1 against the spread in their last six home games, 2-11-2 ATS in their last 15 games versus the AFC, and 5-11-3 ATS in their last 19 games overall. The point spread in this game is inflated given how well the Bengals have played the past two weeks and how poor the Raiders have performed of late. For a team that has struggled at home this year, 9.5 points is a lot to lay on Cincinnati. The Raiders’ defense is atrocious but thanks to Carson Palmer and their passing game, Oakland’s offense can put up points. If the Raiders can keep it close heading into the fourth quarter, they should cover. Look for Palmer to be motivated to beat his former team.
