NFL Free Pick: Take St. Louis. According to latest NFL trends, the Rams are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games on grass and 4-1 ATS in their last five games following an ATS win. They're also 7-2 ATS in their last nine road games, 5-2 ATS versus a team with a losing record and 4-1 ATS in their last five road games versus a team with a losing home record. The Rams have won their last two games because they've been able to generate a running game thanks to rookie Zac Stacy. Last week they also got key contributions from their defense and special teams, which forced four total turnovers and generated two touchdowns. The Panthers, meanwhile, are coming off an impressive 35-10 win over the Vikings on the road but their offense has been wildly inconsistent this season. This is simply too many points to lay on an average Carolina squad.
