Bucs vs. Eagles Free Pick
The Eagles will hope Mark Sanchez can spark their offense today when he starts against the Buccaneers at 1:00PM ET in place of Sam Bradford.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag, the Eagles are 5.5-point home favorites versus the Bucs after Tampa Bay opened as a 6-point underdog. The total, meanwhile, currently sits at 45 points after the number opened at 45.5.
The Bucs enter play today with a 4-5 record and are 5-4 against the spread, including 3-1 against the number on the road this season. As for the Eagles, they're 4-5 straight up and just 4-5 at the betting window, which includes a 2-2 ATS mark at home.
A change in quarterback might not make that much of a difference for a Philadelphia team that hasn't received good play from the interior of its defensive line. That's not a good sign with Gerald McCoy coming to town today. Sanchez might be more efficient running Chip Kelly's offense and he's certainly more mobile than Bradford. But if the Eagles can't run the ball then this game will be close throughout and the Bucs will cover. Tampa Bay is 7-3 against the spread in its last 10 road games while Philly has lost three of its lat five games as a home favorite of more than a field goal.
