NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take Miami. According to latest NFL trends, the Dolphins are 11-2 against the spread in their last 13 games against a team with a winning record and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games following a loss. San Francisco is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 against a team with a losing record. The 49ers were exposed a little bit last week in an overtime loss to the Rams as Colin Kaepernick was unable to stay unbeaten as a starting QB. The Dolphins are coming off a loss to the Patriots, but allowed just 23 points to that explosive offense. Miami has a defense that is somewhat under-rated and should be able to limit with San Francisco does. Look for the 49ers to win, but to do so in a low-scoring game that won’t cover the double-digit spread.
