Philadelphia Eagles at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Buccaneers opened as +5.5-point underdogs for their Week 3 game against the Eagles. The game has an initial total of up to 46 points.

It feels surreal to state, but Baker Mayfield’s 317-yard, one-touchdown effort in the Week 2 win over the Bears was Brady-like and certainly validates the decision the coaching staff made in going with the 2018 first overall pick over Kyle Trask this summer.

Yet, it’s also likely accurate that Mayfield’s first real test comes Monday night against the defending NFC champion Eagles. Philadelphia may come into the game a bit short-handed in the secondary, considering James Bradberry (concussion) and Reed Blankenship (ribs) both missed the Week 2 win over the Vikings. 

However, the Eagles defense as a whole is a daunting task for any quarterback to tackle, especially one that’s had as many issues with ball security as Mayfield has during his career. Philly checks in with the league’s No. 1 rush defense in terms of yards per game allowed (52.0) through the first two weeks as well, so Rachaad White may have trouble doing his part to keep defenders from keying on Mayfield.

The other side of the equation will prove a good test for Tampa Bay’s talented defense. Philadelphia can do damage through both the ground and air, the former particularly evident during D’Andre Swift’s 175-yard rushing performance in Week 2. The Bucs are just below Philadelphia with just 54 rushing yards per game surrendered thus far, so both teams could be stuck with running pass-centric attacks.

How to bet on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers


The moneyline is the simplest of bets, decided by the straight-up winner and loser of each game. Consider the following example:

  • Bucs -145
  • Patriots +190

The Buccaneers are considered heavy favorites in this matchup (indicated by -145), requiring a $145 bet to win $100 (plus the initial bet back). The Patriots are the underdog in this matchup, paying out $290 total for a $100 bet ($190 in winnings). How much either team wins or loses by does not matter in moneyline betting, the payout remains the same.

Point spread

Betting on the point spread is determinant on how many points a team wins or loses by. Take the following example:

  • Bucs -2.5 (-110)
  • Ravens +2.5 (-110)

In this example, Tampa Bay is favored by 2.5 points, indicated by “-2.5.” If the Bucs win the game 31-27, the Bucs (-2.5) win the bet and would have a total payout of $19.09 on a $10 bet ($9.09 in profit). If the Ravens keep the game within three and lose 33-31 the Ravens (+2.5) would win, and the payout would be the same as listed above.

Point total (over/under)

The point total refers to the over/under line set by books. This number projects the total number of points scored in a game and, like prop betting, is bet whether one thinks the score will go over or under the set point total. For example, the Buccaneers’ Week 8 matchup with the New York Giants had a projected point total of 49.5 points. Tampa Bay won the game 25-23, resulting in 48 combined points. Those that bet under the point total would have cashed out.

The Buccaneers fielded one of the most lethal scoring offenses in the NFL coupled with one of the league’s best defenses. Once the offense found their stride (32.9 points per game after Week 5), Tampa Bay’s games garnered higher than league average over/unders, typically between 49 and 54 points. However, that mark was highly dependent on the opposing offense and its scoring capability.

In-play and live betting

Sometimes, the most thrilling and rewarding bets are bets made while games are being played. These are referred to as live bets or in-play bets. Odds are ever-changing during games, which would prove to be fruitful for sharp and prepared bettors. For example, if the Bucs (-225) were heavily favored against the Panthers (+190) before kickoff, a payout on a $10 bet on the Bucs to win would win just $4.44.

However, say the Bucs fell to a big 17-3 deficit in the first half despite controlling the overall game (due to a costly turnover or special teams gaffe). Odds may swing in favor of the Panthers, who may be a -110 favorite at halftime. Taking the Bucs to come back and win the game could present plus-odds (say, +130). Should a bettor take Tampa Bay (+130) at halftime and the Bucs pull off the comeback, winners would win $13 instead of $4.44 (plus the initial $10 bet).

This could also be an effective way to “hedge” your bet; say a bettor took the Panthers (+190) in that game, but Tampa Bay jumps out to a 17-0 first quarter lead and is controlling the overall feel of the game, bettors could hedge by throwing some money down on Tampa Bay (-270) to return some of the inevitably-lost bet.

Parlays and teasers

You can always string bets together in the form of parlays or teasers. Usually during busy Sundays, bettors can parlay several teams to win or cover against the spread and if all bets are successful, the payouts are multiplied. Teasers function similarly, except they allow bettors to move each point spread to a more favorable line in exchange for diminished odds.


Futures are long-term bets that can range from an offseason to a full season (or beyond). Team win totals, award winners, and player performance are common futures.
