NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take San Francisco. According to latest NFL trends, the 49ers are 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games in November, 20-8-1 against the number in their last 29 games overall, and 15-7-1 ATS in their last 23 games versus the NFC. The Saints’ defense has played better the past three weeks than at the start of the season when Steve Spagnuolo was running things. As Joe Vitt has taken over New Orleans D has been more aggressive and has generated more pressure. But Colin Kapernick will make his second straight start since replacing the concussed Alex Smith and the Niners offense opens up with him under center. San Francisco also has the best defense in the league and after Drew Brees torched them in the playoffs last season, look for Aldon Smith and Co. to play better versus the Saints today.
