The Buccaneers are the defending Tremendous Bowl champs. There has not been a lot of a hangover, both, as they adopted that up with an NFC South Division-winning season. Tampa Bay has not had a easy trip with accidents and extra drama of late than any group would love. There may be nonetheless greater than sufficient expertise for the Bucs to be a drive within the playoffs, although.
Philadelphia was alleged to be in a improvement yr this season. I’m nonetheless unsure the Eagles completely imagine in QB Jalen Hurts, however they’ve discovered a solution to win with him. They’re first within the NFL in speeding and play ok protection more often than not. A win this weekend is a tall ask, although, particularly on the highway.
This sport is prone to be a fairly simple win for the Bucs. I feel we are going to know for certain after the primary drive for every group whether or not the Eagles have sufficient to essentially compete. They’re forward of schedule, which is encouraging.
Philadelphia Eagles (9-8) vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (13-4)
Sunday Jan. 16, 2022
1:00 PM ET
Raymond James Stadium, Tampa, Florida
Betting Odds (as of Thursday, Jan. thirteenth)
Unfold: Eagles +8.5 (-110), Bucs -8.5 (–110)
Moneyline: Eagles +330, Bucs -405
Bets I Like
Jalen Hurts Below 0.5 Interceptions (+115)
I’m certain you’ll discover that each one of those bets are on the Philly aspect of issues. That doesn’t imply I feel an upset is brewing, that’s simply the place the values look higher. For this one, the Eagles know that the much less Hurts has to throw the higher. He has been a lot better down the stretch, too, with only one interception in his final 4 video games. Tampa is nice at taking the ball away however getting this sort of payoff for one thing that occurs as a rule is nice worth.
Josh Sweat To Document a Sack (+400)
For Philadelphia to have any likelihood towards Tampa it has to place stress on Tom Brady. Sweat closed the season sturdy with multi-sack video games in two of his final three begins. He didn’t play within the Eagles’ closing sport of the season, although, on account of sickness, so watch the harm studies. He won’t get as a lot consideration as a number of the different Eagles defensive linemen, and I just like the payoff for him to breakthrough and convey down Brady not less than as soon as.
Eagles Over 17.5 Factors (+105)
The Eagles usually are not on the similar degree because the Bucs on offense, however they’ve been a constant scoring group down the stretch. They’ve scored greater than 20 factors in all however two video games this season. I feel Tampa’s protection is overrated this season. The Bucs are fifth in scoring protection (20.8 PPG) however simply thirteenth in yards allowed. They haven’t confronted a group with a useful offense in additional than a month, too.
