NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take Oakland. According to latest NFL trends, the Panthers are 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games following an ATS win and 1-5 ATS in their last six home games. The Raiders, meanwhile, are 5-2 against the number in their last seven road games versus a team with a losing home record. The Raiders aren’t a very good football team but they are much better with a healthy Darren McFadden, who rushed for 110 yards on 30 carries last Sunday in Oakland’s victory over Kansas City. And while the Panthers are playing their best football of the season, 9.5 points is a lot for a 5-9 team to lay. Look for Oakland to cover the spread.
