Professionals bet numbers, not teams.

This is never more apparent than in the NFL when certain lines are much more valuable than others.

For example, due to the ease of scoring via field goals, 3 is the most common margin of victory in NFL games, therefore also making it the most significant number for bettors.

As one can probably guess, the second-most common margin of victory in the NFL is seven points, thanks to touchdowns and extra points.

This is pertinent for Thursday Night Football’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Philadelphia Eagles matchup because this spread sits at a market consensus of seven points at the time of writing.

Using our PRO betting tools, let’s examine the line that sharps are betting for Bucs vs. Eagles on Thursday night.
