NFL Free Pick: Take Detroit. According to latest NFL trends, the Lions are 11-4 against the spread in their last 15 games in October and 15-5-1 ATS in their last 21 games after accumulating more than 350 total yards in their previous game. On the other side, the Cowboys are 6-15 ATS in their last 21 games following a straight up win and 0-4 ATS in their last four games after allowing less than 15 points in their previous game.

The Cowboys have had to travel the past two weeks while the Lions have had an advantage playing at home the past two Sundays. And while Detroit is coming off a tough last-second loss to Cincinnati last week, Matthew Stafford and Co. should overcome a banged up Dallas team for a win today.
