NFL bet fans were burned badly by the Bucs down the stretch last year, that’s for sure, but those who bet on football are not at all impressed with Raheem Morris’ results.
Morris, a Buc assistant coach last year, replaced Gruden and faced immediate NFL bet skepticism as a 32-year old inexperienced career assistant. So far those doubts from those who bet on football have only increased as Tampa Bay has a NFL bet record of 0-4 straight up and 1-3 against the spread. The Bucs are an even 2/2 split on over/under totals so far this year. Last week the Bucs suffered a tough 13-16 NFL bet loss to the Washington Redskins as 9.5-point road dogs. Kicker Mike Nugent missed 2 field goals in the NFL bet defeat and lost his job the next day. Former Colts kicker Shane Andrus will be the kicker for this bet on football matchup.
Quarterback Josh Johnson had a rough NFL bet debut after being named the new starter against the Redskins as he was 13-22 for just 106 yards with 1 touchdown and 1 interception. Johnson and the Bucs were just 2-13 on 3rd downs at Washington which was a major factor in their NFL bet loss. Morris will stick with Johnson, however, in this NFL bet matchup.
Speaking of quarterbacks, Philadelphia’s Donovan McNabb will get the start for this NFL bet matchup after missing the past two games with a rib injury. Philadelphia has a NFL bet record of 2-1 both straight up and against the spread. The Eagles were off last week after winning their last game on September 26 against Kansas City 34-14 as 9-point home favorites. The Eagles have gone over the total in all 3 of their games this year.
Philadelphia has gotten the cash in 9 out of their last 13 games against the NFC while the Bucs have dropped 5 out of their last 6 against the spread following a straight up loss.
In this head to head series the dog is 5-2 against the spread with 5 out of those 7 games going under the total.
