The Eagles are currently listed at -4.5-point favorites to win on Monday night at -108 odds to cover the spread. The total is 45.5, with -108 odds on the over and -112 odds if taking the under. The moneyline has Philadelphia at -205, with Tampa paying +170 odds if they can pull off the upset at home.

Betting Tips for Eagles vs. Buccaneers

The defending NFC champions aren’t expected to come into Tampa and dominate them like they have the rest of the conference. The total has gone under in 13 of the Bucs’ previous 20 games, but they have only covered the spread in four of their last 18 games. However, they’re 4-1 against the spread in their previous five home games, while Philly is 1-5 against the spread in their last six games played in Week 3.

Taking the under 45.5 on the total is the best value at -108, and if Tampa gets a solid game on the defensive side, betting on them to win straight up on the moneyline has the most attractive odds at +170.

Eagles vs. Buccaneers Predictions

The key to this game will be how well the Bucs’ defensive line performs against one of the best offensive lines in the NFL. However, they’ve proven they can get to the quarterback after sacking the Bears’ Justin Fields six times last week. If they can penetrate the line of scrimmage and get a few tackles in the backfield to create third and long situations, the Bucs will have a chance to win.

Philadelphia has several key injuries on defense, and QB Jalen Hurts has struggled in the first two games, with 193 yards, one touchdown, and one interception against the Vikings. If they don’t turn things around before stepping on the field in Tampa, they could find themselves on the losing end of this game.

Prediction: Tampa Bay +4.5
