Philly is also coming off a surprise road victory over the 3-2 Carolina Panthers, who held the Eagles to just 88 yards of offense in the first half and built a nine-point lead at the break.

Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts was the catalyst for the team's second-half turnaround, as he ran for a pair of touchdowns to lift Philly to a 21-18 win.

In Week 6, he'll need to rely more on the passing game to keep the Eagles in this matchup.

The Buccaneers defense ranks first in the league against the run, but are dead last in passing yards surrendered.

The weaknesses in Tampa Bay's secondary may open the door for Philly to spring an upset win at home. 

Let's see how the public is betting the moneyline, point spread, and totals, at TwinSpires Sports ahead of the Bucs vs. Eagles on Thursday Night Football.

Bettors are feeling extremely confident in a Bucs road win on Thursday, as seven-time Super Bowl winner Tom Brady faces the Eagles for the eighth time in his career.

Brady has lost twice to the Eagles — once in a 2015 regular-season matchup and once in the Super Bowl to Nick Foles in 2018.

In his last meeting in 2019, during Brady's final season with the New England Patriots, he defeated Philly, 17-10, on the road.

More than 90% of all tickets and handle are on Tampa Bay to win outright against an Eagles team that has never beaten Brady inside Lincoln Financial Field.

The Bucs own the league's best passing offense (349.4 yards per contest) but will go up against the third best pass defense in the NFL.

Both teams surrender an average of 24 points per outing.
