The model gave this bet a 66% chance of winning when the line was set at 287.5.

Ronald Jones Yards Rushing: Over 15.5 (-110)

The player props tool projects Ronald Jones for 25.77 yards rushing. Jones averages 19.6 yards per game. Philadelphia has the No. 30 rush defense in the NFL, allowing 142 yards per game. If Tampa Bay gives him four or more carries, Jones should rush for over 15.5 yards easily. Jones is averaging 5.2 carries per game and has received four or more carries in every game this season. This bet has an expected ROI of 91% according to the model.

Zach Ertz Yards Receiving: Under 44.5 (-115)

Ertz is averaging five targets per game, which is second on Philadelphia behind DeVonta Smith and tied with Jalen Reagor. On the season the tight end position has been targeted 25.88% of the time. The model believes Hurts will complete 25 passes, and 25% of 25 is 6.25 targets. If playing this bet, it might be worth it to look at Ertz under 4.5 receptions as well.

DeVonta Smith Receptions Made: Under 5.5 (+110)

The model projects Smith for 5.35 receptions and gives the under a 58% chance of winning and an expected ROI of 27%. Smith is averaging five receptions per game.

One-Game Parlay (+225)

The best one-game parlay at BetMGM is Buccaneers moneyline (71% chance projected), Mike Evans over 54.5 yards receiving (70.25 projected) and Tom Brady over 299.5 yards passing (322.01 projected). If all three legs of this parlay hit, the payout is 2.25x.
