Expert Betting Tips
My preference right now is to take the under. From the point of view of the spread, this number looks a little strange to me, but overall, I think we're moving in the wrong direction with the total. Both of these defenses are quite good, and I believe that Baker might have some problems against the defense of the Philadelphia Eagles, while Hurts might have trouble playing against another excellent defense coached by Todd Bowles. Despite the fact that the Buccaneers have been on a winning streak for a number of games and the fact that the Philadelphia Eagles appear to be the better team, I still believe that the away team has what it takes to win the game.
