Monday Night Football is back with a bang as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are hosting the Philadelphia Eagles in the 4-5 matchup of the NFC Wild Card round of the NFL playoffs.
Philly stumbled into the playoffs with a 1-5 record over the last six weeks. However, they already beat the Bucs 25-11 in Week 3, and Tampa Bay is hamstrung by rib and shoulder injuries to quarterback Baker Mayfield.
As the two sides prepare to go to battle in primetime, we assembled a same-game parlay with our favorite player props and betting picks for the Eagles vs. Buccaneers MNF matchup. Let’s jump into the parlay.
The Eagles were terrible to finish the regular season but did make it to the Super Bowl last year and have tons of talent in their locker room. They have the experience of beating the Bucs under their belt and are familiar with the national stage, so we doubt they will get blown out (if they lose at all).
…With that said, Philly gave up the third-most points per game and has one of the worst secondaries in the league. Even though Baker is injured, he should be able to find success downfield as nearly every QB Philly faced this season did. Meanwhile, the Eagles’ physicality and excellence in short-yardage means that as long as they can get down the field, they should find the end zone.
Hurts scored at least one touchdown in 11 of 17 games, including six of the last nine. He hasn’t been great throwing the ball down the field, but with the running backs struggling to find momentum, he’s been effective running the ball (even despite his injuries). He also set an NFL record (later tied by Josh Allen) for most rushing touchdowns by a QB in a season.
Meanwhile, Mike Evans also had a great year for touchdown-scoring. He caught 13 TDs, tied with Tyreek Hill for the most in the NFL, and also crossed the pylons in six of his last nine games. The Eagles’ secondary is egregious, and they will have trouble sticking with a player of his caliber coming off the season he had.
The Eagles gave up more passing yards per game (252.7) than every team in the league not named the Washington Commanders. Meanwhile, Baker averaged 237.9 yards per game, including 252 per game at home. He struggled last week as his injuries seemed to get the best of him, but he was a full-go in practice and is tough enough to gut it out in a do-or-die scenario.
