I was quite surprised when Tampa Bay opened as just an 8.5-point favorite in this game. My personal power numbers which are usually accurate had Tampa Bay as a 10.5-point chalk. Having said that, you would think I would be all over the Bucs but quite the contrary. Like I’ve said may times over the years, I don’t fear the oddsmakers but genuinely respect their ability to set an accurate line. So, my conclusion is this is a fishy line, and the sportsbooks are begging you to take the defending world champion Bucs versus a Philadelphia team which is 9-8 and failed to beat a team all season that finished with a winning record. Bet Philadelphia plus the points.
