Philadelphia Eagles at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Picks & Betting Tips


Tampa Bay are backed to cover the spread in a win over Philadelphia.

The Eagles got torched by Dallas a week ago and Tom Brady could have his way with this defense.

And on the opposite side of the football, this Bucs defense is likely to slow down the Philly run game.

All of this is expected to result in Tampa covering as favorites as they march into the next round.

Philadelphia Eagles Form


Philadelphia made the playoffs despite being blown out 51-26 by Dallas in their regular season finale.

The Eagles lost five of their first seven games but found some consistency in the second half of the campaign to make the postseason.

They won seven of their final 10 games, with a four-game win streak in December proving to be decisive.

The run started with a 33-18 victory over the New York Jets, and they built on that with three big divisional wins to finish second in the NFC East.

Philly beat Washington 27-17 and the New York Giants 34-10, before completing the season sweep of WFT with a 20-16 win in the nation’s capital.

That streak was halted by last weekend’s loss to Dallas, but that did not end their season.

QB Jalen Hurts ended the regular season 265/432 for 3,144 yards, 16 touchdowns and nine interceptions. He also led the team in rushing with 784 yards and 10 scores.

Rookie WR Devonta Smith led Philadelphia in receiving with 916 yards and five TDs off 104 catches.

Defensively the Eagles ranked in the top 10 in yards allowed per game (328.8), but they were 18th in the league in points allowed per game (22.6).

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Form


Defending champions Tampa Bay clinched the NFC South title thanks to a 13-4 regular season record.

The Buccaneers lost either side of the bye week but won seven of their final eight games to run away with the division crown.

This run included a 38-31 win over an Indianapolis team who appeared to be playoff bound at that time, as well as a 33-27 overtime win over Buffalo.

The only low-point was a miserable 9-0 loss to New Orleans, and they responded to that by averaging 33.7 points per game over their final three games.

QB Tom Brady ended the season 485/719 for 5,316 yards, 43 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

Two of Brady’s targets in the passing game eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark. Chris Godwin had 1,103 yards and five TDs, while Mike Evans had 1,035 yards and 14 TDs.

Brady also regularly targeted long-time team-mate Rob Gronkowski who had 802 yards and six TDs.

RB Leonard Fournette rushed for 812 yards and had a total of 1,266 yards from scrimmage, along with 10 TDs.

Defensively, the Bucs ranked in the top five in the league in points allowed per game (20.8).
