The first of the NFC Wildcard games kick off at the home of the champions as Tom Brady and his Buccaneers welcome the 7th seeded Philadelphia Eagles to Florida. Will TB12 keep Tampa’s dream of going back to back alive, or will Jalen Hurts get an upset playoff win over the G.O.A.T?
Miles Sanders is the Eagles lead RB, and the former Penn State runner has the benefit of running behind one of the best O-Line’s in the NFL. Sanders has 45 or more rushing yards in five straight games, in seven of his last eight and in nine of twelve games on the season. The Buccaneers do have a stout run defense, so this might be a close-run number, but with a relatively modest total and Philly’s strength in running the ball, I am happy to take the over for a single unit.
Spread: Eagles +7
Game Prediction: Buccaneers 24-20 Eagles
Best Bet: Miles Sanders over 43.5 rushing yards @ 5/6 with Betfair.
