NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take the Giants According to latest NFL trends, the home team has covered the spread in 7 of the last 8 games between these two, and the favorite has also covered in 7 of the last 8 meetings. Both teams are coming off a bad loss on the road, but tend to regroup at home when coming off a bad loss. They lit up the Packers, 38-10, in their last home game and their pass rush should create problems for Drew Brees, who is coming off a 5 INT performance at Atlanta. The Saints should have a motivated effort, but the offense hasn’t been clicking in recent weeks and it isn’t likely to find its groove against this defense.
