Thursday Night Football NFL Player Props
Tom Brady Under 301.5 Passing Yards
We heard the news of Tom Brady dealing with a sore thumb. However, that is not going to keep the greatest of all time out for this game. But we can say that it could bother him throwing the ball on a short week, traveling to Philadelphia. I know this is a hard pill to swallow taking an Under on Brady passing yards but the Eagles pass defense is tops in the league.
The Eagles passing defense is #3 in passing yards allowed, #4 in opponent yards per pass attempt, and #3 in opponent yards per completion. The Eagles have faced a few of the better passing quarterbacks in the league like Dak Prescott and Patrick Mahomes. In fact, the Eagles allowed 238 passing yards to Prescott and 278 passing yards to Mahomes. I like this player prop to go Under the total!

Miles Sanders Under 33.5 Rushing Yards
Miles Sanders has been trending in the wrong direction for the rushing attack of the Philadelphia Eagles. In fact, over the last three weeks, Sanders had a total of 20 carries and 85 rushing yards. He’s exceeded 34 or more rushing yards just once in that span.
Now, he is tasked to go up against the best rush defense in the league. The Buccaneers rush defense ranks #1 in opponent yards per rush attempt, opponent rushing yards per game, and opponent rush attempts per game. I do not see Miles Sanders having any type of success against the Buccaneers rush defense!
Quez Watkins Over 39.5 Receiving Yards
Quez Watkins may not be the first, second, or even third option on this Eagles receiving group. However, Watkins is averaging 20.5 yards per reception thus far this season. The Buccaneers’ secondary is decimated by injuries and I believe Hurts and Watkins can take advantage. Furthermore, Watkins has 40 or more receiving yards in three out of the last four weeks. I like Watkins to go Over 40 receiving yards.
