The 2021 NFL betting season hits Week 6 as Tampa Bay heads to Philadelphia, and BetRivers is proud to provide a wide variety of Eagles-Buccaneers betting odds, props, same-game parlays, and much more. The Buccaneers have won 12 of their last 13 games, and the public anticipates Tampa Bay to win on Thursday night. But the Bucs are just 2-3 ATS this season and are 0-2 ATS on the road. The Eagles enter Week 6 having defeated the Panthers to snap a three-game losing skid. The Eagles, like the Buccaneers, are 2-3 ATS this season and are 0-2 ATS at home.

EAGLES-BUCCANEERS BETTING ODDS: PUBLIC TRENDS
Buccaneers Moneyline: 94% money, 91% bets
Buccaneers Spread: 72% money, 79% bets
Over: 57% money, 65% bets
As dominant as Tampa has been, they are 2-3 against the spread and 0-2 on the road ATS. The Eagles are also 2-3 against the spread this season and 0-2 at home.
So something has to give here.
The Eagles have one good cornerback (Darius Slay) – the problem for them is that Tampa has multiple receivers that can hurt you and they’re all healthy. Tom Brady continues to defy father time and is on pace to possibly win the MVP. (relax Justin Herbert fans – it’s only week six)
As for the Bucs defense, they have the athletes to at least keep Jalen Hurts somewhat in check, but I am concerned about their injury-plagued secondary. Hurts should be able to find first-round pick De’Vonta Smith for a few receptions; couple that with Hurts’ legs and there’s at least hope that they keep the chains moving. More first downs mean more possession means less time on the field for Brady and company.
I bet on the Eagles at home vs the Kansas City Chiefs when they were big dogs. That didn’t work out well, but watching the game, I didn’t feel bad about this decision. Philly could’ve easily covered that one and I’ll go to the well once again.
The line has fluctuated a bit, but at 7, my money is on Philadephia. You don’t make much money betting on road favorites – This is a mantra most sports betters know and rarely go against.
The Pick: Eagles +7
After reading what I wrote, it’s probably not a surprise that I see a lot of points in this one. 72 points in the game against Dallas, 62 in the game against the Chiefs.
Once again, we’ll see a lot of points when the Eagles face a potent offense.
The Pick: OVER 52.5
One prop bet we like and it’s all about the GOAT, Tom Brady – (this coming from a NY Jet fan)
Brady is fantastic against zone defenses. Nick Sirianni’s defense plays cover 3 most often with cover-4 and cover-2 sprinkled in. Brady should have no problem picking that apart. As for Philly’s pass rush – it’s good, but so is Brady under pressure.
Tom Brady OVER 2.5 Touchdown passes is the play
