Eagles Vs. Buccaneers NFL Monday Night Football Predictions And Picks
The play of Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Baker Mayfield has been one of the surprising developments of the season. Playing for his fourth team since 2021, Mayfield has been a steady presence at QB for Tampa, throwing for 490 yards, three touchdowns, and zero interceptions with a 104.4 passer rating. Mayfield gets a favorable matchup, as the Eagles have allowed 326.0 passing yards per game.
For the Eagles, the running game exploded in Week 2’s victory over the Minnesota Vikings. Without Kenneth Gainwell in the lineup, Eagles running back D’Andre Swift seized the most out of his opportunity, rushing for 175 yards and one touchdown. Quarterback Jalen Hurts chipped in 35 yards rushing and two touchdowns.
Despite their dominance on the ground, the Eagles’ passing game has started slowly, with Hurts only throwing for 363 yards in two games. Plus, the Eagles rushing attack faces a tough Bucs run defense that’s allowed the fourth-least rushing yards per game (54.0).
If Mayfield takes care of the football (zero turnovers on the year), the Bucs should be able to make this a low-scoring affair and keep it close until the end.
Eagles Vs. Buccaneers NFL Monday Night Football Best Prop Bets
Chris Godwin Over 56.5 Receiving Yards (-114)
Buccaneers receiver Chris Godwin has not found the end zone in two games. However, Godwin has 10 catches on 13 targets. The Bucs WR did drop a potential touchdown in Week 2 against the Bears.
Godwin now draws an Eagles secondary that features Darius Slay and James Bradberry, with the latter returning from a concussion.
Godwin’s running mate, Mike Evans, has looked unstoppable (237 yards receiving) and will draw Slay on most plays.
Look for the Eagles’ defense to try and take away the big play to Evans down the field. This opens up the short passing game for Godwin and the Bucs, who will want to get the ball out early because of the Eagles’ strong pass rush.
Godwin is at his best in the slot, so look for the Bucs to get him the ball early out of that position.
Jalen Hurts Anytime Touchdown (-115)

The most unstoppable play in the NFL is the “Tush Push,” the short-yardage QB sneak from Hurts and the Eagles.
During the 2022 season, the Eagles used the formation 41 times and converted 37 opportunities into first downs and touchdowns.
Hurts scored two Tush Push touchdowns against the Vikings last week. Until proven otherwise, Hurts will score again using the Tush Push.
