Tampa Bay is in the playoffs in four straight seasons for the first time since the 1999-2002 campaigns. Philadelphia is looking to become the first NFC team to make back-to-back trips to the Super Bowl since the Seattle Seahawks during the 2013 and 2014 seasons.

The NFL lines list visiting Philadelphia as a three-point favorite after the line opened at -2½.

There are some pretty big names popping up on the injury report for Philadelphia, led by quarterback Jalen Hurts, receivers A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith, running back D’Andre Swift, cornerback Darius Slay and safety Reed Blankenship.


Swift, Slay, and Smith look good to go. Will having an extra day to help the other Philadelphia injured players get cleared to play?

When looking at the NFL futures odds, Philadelphia is third among the NFC teams with +1800 odds of winning the Super Bowl. Tampa Bay is sixth at +6500.

Here’s a look at some  NFL odds to consider!

Take A Look At These Other 2 NFL Special Articles

  • Philadelphia has covered in just three of its eight road games this season.
  • The Eagles have failed to cover in each of their last five games against NFC teams.
  • The total has landed under in 12 of Tampa Bay’s last 18 games.
  • Philadelphia is 2-6 against the spread in its last eight games played in January.
  • The total has gone under in seven of Philadelphia’s last eight games on the road.
  • In six of Tampa Bay’s last seven home games, the total went under the total.
  • The Buccaneers have covered in four of their last five games.
  • Tampa Bay has lost four of its last five games as the home underdog.

Over/Under Pick: Over 43 (-110)

This is projected to be the lowest scoring of the three Wild Card games in the NFC as the playoffs get underway.

Philadelphia’s defense has been a mess down the stretch. However, Tampa Bay couldn’t score a touchdown in a must-win game against a two-win Carolina team.

Don’t expect to see the teams flying up and down the field, but that 43-point total certainly seems attainable.

 

Moneyline Pick: Philadelphia Eagles (-160)

It might make more sense to stay away from the spread as it is now showing Philadelphia as a three-point favorite and it would not be a surprise to see Tampa Bay be within a field goal in this matchup.

The question is which Philadelphia team will show up. The Eagles looked like the Super Bowl favorite when they got off to a 10-1 start, only to stumble down the stretch. That has resulted in Philadelphia losing control of the NFC East race and having to play on the road on Monday.

Look for the Eagles to regroup and take care of business on the road against Tampa Bay.

 

Player Prop Pick: Bucs TE Cade Otton To Go over 33 Receiving Yards (+131)

Philadelphia gave up five catches for 45 yards to New York Giants tight end Darren Waller in the final week of the regular season. The week before, Arizona’s Trey McBride had 48 yards on six catches.

Tampa Bay’s Cade Otton is a bit of a forgotten piece of the Tampa Bay passing offense. He had 33 yards in the last game for the Buccaneers and there could be room for Otton to operate in the middle of the field in this matchup.
