After a chaotic past week of football, NFL Week 6 has a lot to live up to. The week begins with a Thursday Night Football matchup between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Philadelphia Eagles, who are both coming off wins. However, the Buccaneers are the clear NFL betting favorites despite playing on the road. The following Buccaneers vs. Eagles preview will provide the current odds, betting trends, and best NFL bets for the Week 6 Thursday Night Football matchup.
NFL Best Bets & Odds: Week 6 Thursday Night Football
The Buccaneers enter this game without their Hall of Fame tight end Rob Gronkowski, as he continues to be out with injured ribs. Lavonte David and Antoine Winfield Jr. will also be absent on the defensive side of the ball. Even without those three, the Buccaneers should continue to roll. The offense is stacked with playmakers. Defensively the front seven is solid, but the secondary is damaged and weak. With the Eagles refusing to run the ball, Tampa will need to commit extra attention to the Philadelphia passing attack.

The Eagles could also be down their TE1, with Dallas Goedert being placed on the COVID list. Since he is vaccinated, he has the opportunity to be removed from the list in time for kickoff tonight. While his status is uncertain, the status of Lane Johnson is not, as he has already been ruled out. It seems serious, as coach Nick Sirianni is unsure Johnson will return this season. This is a massive blow to an already damaged offensive line, especially with a Thursday Night matchup against Tampa Bay. Jalen Hurts will need to show off his mobility and poise as a passer for the Eagles to have much of a chance.

Buccaneers vs. Eagles NFL Best Bet
We are using the new Awesemo NFL Betting Model to figure out what the best bet for Thursday Night Football is tonight. According to the model, betting the game total Under 52.5 is the clear best bet to place, giving it a 8% ROI. The model also shows an expected game total of 50.8 points, which is nearly 2 under the prop line. While there have been high-scoring Thursday Night Football games over the past couple years, it makes sense that this one could go under. The Eagles defense is playing really well right now. On the flip side, their offense is so predictable and one-dimensional that the Buccaneers should be able to commit extra attention to their weakness, which is the secondary.
