  • Sunday's NFL Week 2 matchup between the Philadelphia Eagles (-3) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers is attracting heavy professional action, especially over the last 12 hours.
  • The Action Network's betting tools reveal that sharps have consistently bet the same side of this matchup.

While most recreational bettors were sleeping and/or sweating late-night college football, wiseguys were focusing on today’s Week 2 NFL slate of games.

The Action Network’s Josh Appelbaum covered three games that have attracted sharp action throughout the week in his NFL Week 2 Sharp Report, but professional bettors aren’t settling on just those matchups.

After quickly reviewing our proprietary betting tools, it’s easy to determine that since 9 p.m. ET Saturday, professional money has lined up to take the same side of today’s Philadelphia Eagles-Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1 p.m. ET) matchup.

Betting Terms to Know

Steam Move: Sudden, drastic and uniform line movement across the market caused by an overload of sharp action from respected players.

Reverse Line Movement: When the betting line moves in the opposite direction of the betting percentages. It’s a top smart money indicator.
