Philadelphia Eagles at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Preview & Picks

Tampa Bay are tipped to, at the very least, cover in the Wildcard round.

Philadelphia fell apart over the final few weeks of the regular season and are banged up on offense.

The defense has been a mess too, so if there is a Wildcard game that produces an upset, this could be it.

  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers are 8-3-0 ATS in their last 11 games
  • Philadelphia Eagles are 1-5 straight up in their last 6 games
  • Philadelphia Eagles are 0-6-0 ATS in their last 6 games
  • The Under has hit in 7 of Philadelphia’s last 8 road games

Head To Head

  • The all-time series is tied 11-11
  • Philadelphia Eagles won 25-11 when the two teams last met on September 25

Philadelphia Eagles Form

Philadelphia enter the playoffs on a miserable run of form that saw them miss out on the NFC East title at 11-6.

The Eagles stormed to an 8-1 record before the bye week, and then reached 10-1 when they beat Kansas City 21-17 and Buffalo 37-354 when they returned to action.

Their form took a nose dive in December though, starting with a 42-19 blowout defeat when they hosted San Francisco.

Philadelphia then lost 33-13 in Dallas and 20-17 at Seattle, before finally stopping the rot with a 33-25 victory over the New York Giants.

The Eagles failed to build on that win though, suffering a 35-31 defeat to Arizona before losing 27-10 at the New York Giants.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Form

Tampa Bay come into this Wildcard game in good form, having won five of their last six games to finish 9-8.

The Buccaneers’ postseason aspirations suffered a setback when they lost six times in a seven-game spell to fall to 4-7.

They turned things around round at the start of December though, kicking off a good run of form with a 21-18 win against Carolina.

Tampa Bay then won back-to-back road games, 29-25 in Atlanta and 34-20 at Green Bay, before making it four-in-a-row with a 30-12 win against Jacksonville.

The Buccaneers missed out on a fifth consecutive win when they were beaten 23-13 by New Orleans, but they hit back immediately to beat Carolina 9-0 and seal a playoff place.

Verdict

Philadelphia are the better team on paper, but they are in terrible form heading into this.

The Eagles are also dealing with a bunch of injuries, so Tampa Bay offer appeal as a betting underdog at home.
