NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take Tampa Bay. According to latest NFL trends, Tampa Bay is 14-5 ATS L19 as a road dog. Denver is 0-5 ATS before playing Oakland. The Bucs are 6-5 SU and 8-2-1 ATS this year, coming off a tough, 24-23 home loss to Atlanta last week. Denver is coming off a mediocre performance at Kansas City last week, winning 17-9, but not covering the 10. The Bucs, getting 7 here, will look to control the clock with a strong running game led by rookie Doug Martin and a passing game against Josh Freeman. Denver’s offense is all about the pass after losing RB Willis McGahee to a knee injury. That’s not surprising since Peyton Manning will be throwing early and often as the Bucs have the 1st-ranked run defense (81.5ypg). But when you put the ball in the air 40-50 times, you also risk getting picked off.
