NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take Arizona. According to latest NFL trends, the 49ers are 1-4 against the spread in their last five games versus a team with a losing record and 1-5 ATS in their last six games against divisional opponents. The Cardinals, meanwhile, are 7-2 against the spread in their last nine games in Week 17 and 3-1-1 ATS in their last five games following an ATS loss. As previously mentioned, the Niners need a win or a Seattle loss/tie to clinch the NFC West and a win plus a Green Bay loss in order to secure a first-round bye. While they should be NFC West Division champions by the end of the day, 16.5 points is a lot in a NFL game. Even though Arizona is a horrendous football team, take the double-digit underdog.
