NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take St. Louis. According to latest NFL trends, the 49ers are 1-4 against the spread in their last five games versus the Rams, who are 5-0 against the number in their last five divisional games. St. Louis is also 4-1 ATS in its lat five games versus the NFC and 5-1 ATS versus a team with a winning record. Three weeks ago when these teams squared off, the Rams punched the Niners in the face and should have won if they didn’t make so many mistakes down the stretch. Look for Steven Jackson and the St. Louis running game to set the tempo for this game and keep it close throughout. Considering the Rams nearly won in the first matchup, 7.5 points is way too many points to give to the home team.
