Odds: Buccaneers -7, O/U 52.5
This quantity initially opened at Buccaneers -6.5, however ticked up a half-point on Sunday night to Buccaneers -7 and had held for the majority of the week. On Tuesday, nevertheless, you had been capable of lay the factors with Tampa Bay at +100.
The choose: Buccaneers -7. There’s sure to be quite a lot of of us on the Philly bandwagon after its protection got here alive towards the Panthers and compelled three interceptions towards Sam Darnold. Whereas that efficiency was encouraging, dealing with Brady and this Bucs offense is a completely completely different animal. This must be a wildly entertaining sport but when this turns right into a high-scoring affair as the overall suggests, I see Brady and Co. popping out on high in that state of affairs.
Key development: Eagles are 1-5 ATS of their final six video games following a win.
This whole opened at 53 however did drop a full level to 52 on Monday. It is attainable that Tom Brady’s reported thumb harm could have the facility to maneuver that quantity down a notch, despite the fact that it is anticipated that he’ll play. On the even of this matchup, nevertheless, the overall has bumped as much as half-point to 52.5.

Tampa Bay can also be averaging 33.4 factors per sport, which ranks third-most within the league. Whereas the Eagles performed properly final week defensively, they did permit 40-plus factors in every of their earlier two video games. In the event that they revert again to that on Thursday, it will not take a lot for this sport to go over.
Key development: Over is 4-0 for the Bucs following a straight-up win.

Brady’s passing yards prop has skyrocketed main into this matchup and now sits at 302.5. Whereas this can be a lofty quantity, he is gone over this whole in three of his 5 video games performed this season. My favourite Brady prop of the bunch right here is the Over on his 1.5 dashing yards. He is gone over this whole in 4 of his 5 video games performed this season and would primarily simply want a brief QB sneak to hit so long as he isn’t costing you by taking a knee in victory formation.

The Buccaneers are nice towards the run, however the Eagles will nonetheless use Harm’s dashing skill in some capability on this sport, which is why I am leaning Over on his 7.5 dashing makes an attempt. He flirts round this quantity in primarily each sport he is performed this season and has gone over this whole in his final 4 video games.

This modifications if Dallas Goedert (COVID-19 listing) is cleared to play, however Ertz might be the lone tight finish within the Eagles’ passing assault on Thursday.
