Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Philadelphia Eagles Predictions & Tips


Tampa Bay can make it three wins in a row and cover on Thursday Night Football.

The offense is firing and the Bucs should be able to set a pace that Philadelphia cannot keep up with.

The Eagles could force the Over though by taking advantage of a poor Tampa Bay pass defense.

  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a 4-1 record
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers have won 9 of their last 10 road games this season
  • Philadelphia Eagles have lost 4 of their last 5 home games
  • The Over has hit in 4 of Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ 5 games this season
  • The Over has hit in 5 of the last 6 meetings between Philadelphia & Tampa Bay

Head To Head


  • Philadelphia Eagles lead the all-time series 10-9
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers won 27-21 when the teams last met in 2018

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Form


Tampa Bay have rebounded from their Week 3 defeat to take their record to 4-1 through five weeks.

The Buccaneers needed a last-gasp field goal to snatch a 31-29 win over Dallas on opening night.

They followed that up with a 48-25 win over Atlanta before falling to a 34-24 defeat at the Los Angeles Rams.

The Bucs rebounded to win 19-17 in Tom Brady’s return to New England, and then followed that up with a commanding 45-17 win over Miami last weekend.

Brady has gone 149/255 for 1,767 yards, 15 touchdowns and just two interceptions so far this season.

Mike Evans has been his favorite target with 29 receptions for 393 yards and four TDS. Chris Godwin (366 yards, two TDs) and Antonio Brown (325 yards, three TDs) have also made an impact.

Leonard Fournette has been the biggest weapon out of the backfield, racking up 418 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown.

Defensively Tampa Bay have struggled to reach the heights of last season, but they have forced multiple takeaways in three of their five game so far.

They are yet to allow 100 yards rushing in a game, but the pass defense ranks last in the league.

Philadelphia Eagles Form


Philadelphia go into this game with a 2-3 record after halting a three-game skid last Sunday.

The Eagles opened with a 32-6 blow-out of Atlanta but were soon brought back down to Earth by a tough schedule.

They lost 17-11 at home to San Francisco before being soundly beaten 41-21 by the Dallas Cowboys.

The losing run hit three games when they suffered their second home defeat of the season, losing 42-30 to Kansas City, but they did stop the rot with a good 21-18 win at Carolina.

QB Jalen Hurt has gone 118/182 for 1,365 yard, seven touchdowns and three interceptions. He also has 256 rushing yards and three scores.

Miles Sanders has 325 yards from scrimmage out of the backfield and Kenneth Gainwell has shown a dual threat with 22 yards and a couple of TDs.

In the passing game rookie DeVonta Smith has made an early impression with 314 yards receiving and a TD. Dallas Goedert and Quez Watkins have combined for 483 yards and two TDs.

The defense is top 3 against the pass but ranks 30th against the run and just #21 in points allowed per game.

Verdict

Philadelphia's pass defense ranks high but Tom Brady has the talent and weapons to do damage.

Opposite number Jalen Hurts should enjoy some success too, but the Eagles are unlikely to keep up with the Bucs on the scoreboard.

Tampa Bay can take this game and cover a one-touchdown spread in a high-scoring game.
