NFL Free Pick: Take Washington. According to latest NFL trends, the Lions are 1-4 against the spread in their last five games following a straight up loss and 3-12-1 ATS in their last 16 games in Week 3. They're also 1-4 ATS in their last five games versus a team with a losing record, 1-5-1 ATS in their last seven games in September, and 0-4 ATS in their last four road games. On the other side, the Redskins are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall.

The Lions are in much better shape than the Redskins, who have looked like a completely different team through two weeks than they did lat year when they won the NFC East. RGIII has been limited as a runner and Washington's defense has been a disaster thus far. That said, the Lions have always struggled on the road and with Reggie Bush (knee) banged up, their explosive offense could be somewhat slowed. The Redskins are in desperation mode and are at home - ride with the small favorite.
