Thursday Night Football Picks: Mims calls Tampa Bay Bucs at Philadelphia Eagles, Tom Brady, Mike Evans props
The NFL Thursday Night Football game has the Tampa Bay Buccaneers playing the Philadelphia Eagles. The numbers are Bucs -7.0 with a total of 52.5. The money line is Bucs -300 & Eagles +240. Eagles are the home team.
Injury Report: Rob Gronkowski, Antoine Winfield Jr. and Lavonte David are out for Tampa. Lane Johnson is out for Eagles. Dallas Goedert appears to be a game time decision due to Covid testing.
67% of the action is on the Bucs. 63% of the public like the game over.
Trends: Bucs are 5-1 against the spread over last 6 games. Bucs are 6-1 as a favorite in last 7 games. In head-to-head match ups, the over is 5-1 in the last six meetings.
Prop Action: Tom Brady over 301.5 in passing yardage. The price is -115. He goes over. Mike Evans over 67.5 receiving yards. I would lay the 115 and go over. Tom Brady longest completed pass over 38.5 yards. The price is -120. He goes over. Tampa total points over 30.5. The number has value at +100. Going over.
Coaching Match Up: Bruce Arians heavily over Nick Sirianni.
My take on the game. The Bucs are coming in hot off a dominating game against the Dolphins. Eagles pulled an upset over the Panthers. Short week of preparation will work against a new coach. If the Birds were committed to a running game, they could hang around. Bucs are just too strong offensively. Take the Bucs -7 and over.
