I love the fact that Ryan Fitzpatrick had such a great game last week. Throwing for over 400 yards and 4 TDs running in for one more. Leading the Buccaneers to a win on the road against the heavily favored Saints. Thanks to this the Bucs find themselves only 3.5 point underdogs to the defending champs rather than 10.5 point underdogs like they probably should be. The Saints defense was pretty good last year. This has caused people to overreact and believe the Saints can still have a good defense this year. The jury is still out on whether they can get it together. One thing I know for certain is the Eagles defense has a terrific pass rush, and they had one last year too. This is something Ryan Fitzpatrick did not see in week 1. Even though this is a home game for Tampa, the conditions play into what the Eagles do as a team better than the Bucs. We’re looking at a humid and rainy game. Completely different than the dome the Bucs played in last week where their offense looked amazing. The Eagles are going to be in Fitzpatricks face and those big plays the Bucs made last week will not have the time to develop when they play the Eagles. The Eagles will probably win this one with the score of something like 21-3. I like the under but its not my lock. My lock is the Eagles dominating this game and covering the spread. Also since the price is so low it makes sense to put some on the moneyline also.
Lock of the week 2:
