  • Moneyline: Buccaneers (-310) vs. Eagles (+255)
  • Spread: Buccaneers -7

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Vs. Philadelphia Eagles Moneyline

Backing up the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' odds to win is that QB Tom Brady demolishes the Eagles whenever they play. He holds a 4-1 all-time career record against Philly and with each of their current rosters, the Buccaneers should have an easy win here.

Getting into the Bucs' odds, even more, is that the Eagles have not won a home game yet this season, going 0-2. Tampa Bay has gone 1-1 on the road.

Also, the Buccaneers' offense might be too much for the Eagles to handle. They are ranked in the Top-3 in points per game with 33.4 PPG and in total yards per game at 431.4 YPG. The Eagles average about 10 points and 60 total yards less per game.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Vs. Philadelphia Eagles Spread

The 7-point spread in this matchup does not reflect the moneyline, as the Eagles' odds are favored to cover at -115 while the Bucs' spread is at -105. The Bucs are one of the hottest teams against the spread this season, having gone 5-1 ATS in their last six games overall and 5-2 following a win. The Eagles, on the other hand, are 1-5 against the spread following a straight-up win.

For those looking to bet on the Bucs spread, more value can be made betting on Tampa Bay’s spread than their moneyline, even with points bought. Confident sports bettors that believe Brady and the Bucs will cover seven points can get in at -105 odds, which would profit $95 on a $100 bet. If a half-point (6.5-point spread -125) is bought, the profit would be $80. A 1-point (6-point spread -135), $74 profit, and a 1.5-point spread (5.5-point spread -145) would see a $69 profit.

Even when buying the maximum points, the profit would be more than double the money line, as $100 on the moneyline would bring in just $32.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Vs. Philadelphia Eagles Game Total

While 52 points might seem like a hefty number to hit, all signs are pointing towards the OVER. The Buccaneers are tied with the best OVER record this season at 4-1 and are going over their game totals by a 6.5-point average.
