NFL Week 17 Free Pick: Take the Patriots. According to latest NFL trends, the road team is 8-3 against the spread in the last 11 games in this series, but the Patriots are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a failed cover. The Patriots own a 23-16 win over the Dolphins back on Dec. 2, but New England has had a rough few weeks, losing the 49ers and then having a poor showing against the Jaguars last week in a 23-16 victory. New England still has something to play for, as it can possibly earn the No. 1 seed. Miami has nothing on the table. Look for the Patriots to look to make a statement in this game after a few poor weeks of play. New England wants to let the NFL know it is still one of the Super Bowl favorites.
