How Good Are The Two Teams Defensively?
Brady's Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the worst team in the league against the pass in terms of pass yards allowed per game.
Opposing teams are averaging 314.4 pass yards per game against them, although in 2020 they only allowed 249.1 pass yards per game.
The Bucs haven’t exactly been going up against the most elite passers in the NFL either. Dak Prescott and Matthew Stafford are very good, but Jacoby Brissett, Mac Jones and Matt Ryan are not the cream of the crop.
The Philadelphia Eagles, on the other hand, has been stingy in the air, allowing only 194.8 pass yards per game, third best in the league.
This includes two common opponents with the Bucs - the Atlanta Falcons and the Dallas Cowboys - as well as a matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs.
In this context, the bet gets a bit more complex. Brady is averaging 353.4 pass yards per game, so his side of the bet seems like a slam dunk at first glance, but he’s going up against a stingy pass defense and his passing comes in spurts - he’s missed 300 yards in two of his five games.
Hurts, on the other hand, is a quarterback who is known more for his legs than his arm, but he’s had two games over 300 yards passing already, and he’s going up against the worst pass defense in the NFL.
The bet is complex, and might not hit, but at +300 odds, the value seems to be there, and that might be enough for it to be a profitable wager for online gambling fans to take.
The Philadelphia Eagles host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday Night Football at 8:20 p.m. EST. The game will be broadcast on Fox, NFL Network and Amazon Prime Video.
