Betting Analysis for Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Philadelphia Eagles NFL
Philadelphia Eagles Betting Stats & Analysis
Philadelphia is not a team that is going to blow you away in any one facet of the game, But they will come at you in an aggressive manner and remain competitive throughout the course of a game.
The Eagles will have the majority of their starters fully rested since they were able to rest them last week against the Cowboys in a fairly meaningless game. Most notably, Jalen Hurts, who had been dealing with an injured ankle, should benefit greatly from the week off.
Philadelphia erased an underwhelming 2-5 beginning to their season with an impressive 7-3 record to close out the year. Much of this was the product of a sneaky good offense that has been underrated all season long.
The Eagles are 12th in points per game and first in rushing yards per contest. Hurts leads the team in rushing yards with 784 to his credit. Running back Miles Sanders has helped the rushing cause as well, with 754 yards on the ground under his belt.
And while they are just 29th in passing yards per game, Hurts has not been bad from a quarterback standpoint. He has thrown for over 3,100 yards to go along with 16 touchdowns. Those numbers will not make your jaw drop, but they are respectable enough.
Defensively, they are 18th in the NFL in points allowed per contest and 10th in yards allowed per game. They will need their defense to be at the top of its game on Sunday against this Tom Brady-led Bucs offensive attack.
Philadelphia is 6-3 on the road this season, so they have proven that they can win away from home. The Eagles will look to shock the football world and upset Tampa Bay on their home field.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Betting Stats & Analysis
Tampa Bay is a heavy betting favorite for Sunday. However, they have dealt with some issues of their own.
The injuries continue to pile up as veteran cornerback Richard Sherman was placed on the IR this past week. Sherman joins a lengthy list that includes names such as Chris Godwin and Leonard Fournette.
But it is not all bad in Tampa Bay. The Bucs have won three games in a row, and Tom Brady continues to defy his age. Brady threw for over 300 yards and three touchdowns in last week’s win against Carolina.
The Bucs defense was one of the best in the NFL this season as they finished fifth in points surrendered per contest. While they have been hit hard by injuries, the depth on this unit should provide enough stability to limit the Eagles’ offense.
The X-factor to look out for will be the scrambling ability of Jalen Hurts. If they can contain Hurts on the ground and consistently force him to throw the football, the Buccaneers should force Philadelphia into a significant number of punts and turnovers.
The Buccaneers are in a good position to win this game at home.
