The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a chance to get their feet back under them in Week 14, as they host the free-falling Philadelphia Eagles. A survey of expert picks from around the net show that the Bucs are expected to do just that, with Tampa Bay emerging as the consensus pick.
Tampa Bay has lost two straight, putting the crimp on their playoff hopes, but Philadelphia has lost eight consecutive games. Over at Yahoo! Sports, Mike Silver, Jason Cole and the collected Yahoo! users all see that trend continuing and have picked Tampa Bay to win.
It's much the same story at CBS Sports, where their slate of eight writers have all picked the Bucs to win, and their prediction machine has called for the same result. CBS Sports also picks against the spread, and a line of Tampa Bay -7.5 has three men picking the Eagles. Philadelphia's two most recent losses were by eight points or less, but the four proceeding those were all by more than one score.
