The only thing better than watching our Philadelphia Eagles march on to victory is winning money alongside the team. While beating Tom Brady and the Bucs may be too tall of a task, we have some great opportunities to make money off this game. Don’t ever believe someone telling you never to bet your own team – as nobody knows the intricacies of your team like you.
We know the Eagles and their capabilities, the ceiling and floor of expected results. We’ve also seen the Bucs up close and personal, as well as that pesky quarterback. Let’s look at five huge plays on the Eagles-Bucs game this Sunday in Tampa Bay that could pay off — even if the Eagles don’t pull off the upset.
Even if things revert to the first half of the season for the Eagles – unable to compete with the Bucs for the second time – we have a strong backdoor cover. The Eagles still have an amazing playmaker in Jalen Hurts who can take advantage of softer defenses later in games. Who cares if it’s garbage time? It’s how teams cover numbers larger than seven. That’s the worst-case scenario. The other is simply the Eagles are for real and hang in this game – or even win outright.

They will try and move the ball down the field and put this game out of reach. The Eagles may try and hold on to the ball, but they can break a run on any play. The over was 10-7 this year for Philadelphia, and 5-3 at Raymond James Stadium – with an average of 50 points scored per-game. Get it at 45.5 before it goes up.
Jalen Hurts Anytime TD
I did a double-take at this return because of how deadly Hurts is on the ground – especially as he gets closer to the goal line. He’s a true DFS vulture that would make the likes of Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen proud. While …….
