NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take New York. According to latest NFL trends, the road team is 8-1 against the spread in the last nine meetings between these two teams while the Giants are 10-2-1 against the number in their last 13 games versus a team with a winning record. They’re also 5-2-1 ATS in their last eight games versus the NFC and 38-17-1 ATS in their last 56 road games. Atlanta’s offensive line has failed Matt Ryan in recent weeks and the challenge doesn’t get any bigger when pass rushers Jason Pierre-Paul, Justin Tuck and Osi Umenyiora come to town. The interior of the defensive line killed the Falcons last year and will likely do so again as Atlanta is too one-dimensional to keep the Giants off balance today.
