The final game of NFL Super Wild Card Weekend features the Eagles vs. TB Bucs on Monday night. The Eagles come into the game on a 1-5 run to end the season, along with many injuries and coaching rumors. The Bucs are a surprise playoff team in the NFC for sure, but they are also dealing with injuries and a recent downtrend in performance.
Our expert STB staff focused on D’Andre Swift, Baker Mayfield, and Cade Otton for another winning NFL player props analysis. The Eagles’ pass defense has been awful and we do not see a 180-degree change happening in Tampa. If you want to slow down an opposing offense, you need to control the time of possession. Hence the focus on D’Andre Swift. Let’s jump in.
Eagles Vs. TB Bucs Wild Card Props
- D’Andre Swift over 60.5 rushing yards
- Cade Otton over 24.5 receiving yards
- Baker Mayfield over 235.5 passing yards
D’Andre Swift (RB) Rushing Yards – Over 60.5

With the Eagles’ passing game facing challenges and the late-breaking absence of AJ Brown, Philadelphia should turn its attention to the rushing attack to fill the void.
Swift, having been fortunate enough to sit out last week’s game, appears to be in good shape for himself and the team. The former Lion has swiftly returned to practice, showing no lingering effects from missing Week 18 due to illness.
Before his brief absence, Swift consistently achieved 60 or more rushing yards in five of his last seven starts. His only setbacks occurred against formidable teams like the Cowboys and 49ers. Considering he missed last week due to illness, not injury, it’s reasonable to expect Swift to handle a regular or even expanded workload, especially since he had averaged 17 carries over his final three starts. This line opened at 59.5 rushing yards. You may want to lock your OVER pick ASAP.

Cade Otton (TE) Over 24.5 Receiving Yards
|Cade Otton vs. Eagles D
|Passing Yards Allowed
Tight Ends have FEASTED on the Eagles defense this season. From Jake Ferguson to George Kittle and even Darren Waller in week 18. We do not see this trend stopping in Tampa on Monday and neither do bettors. DraftKings public betting lines opened at 21.5 receiving yards for Cade Otton and have quickly moved to 24.5 as we approach game day,
Cade Otton has 67 targets on the season which ranks 5th on the team, but he is just 3 behind Rachaad White who is 3rd on the team in targets with. Otton will get plenty of opportunities on Monday and we love the OVER here.
Baker Mayfield (QB)Passing Yards – Over 235.5
|Baker Mayfield vs. Eagles D
|Passing Yards Allowed
Baker’s passing yards prop for his Wild Card matchup against the Eagles opened at 232.5 and has quickly moved to 235.5
While there’s a potential pitfall if the Eagles perform abysmally and Mayfield doesn’t require more than 232 yards, the scenario is plausible. Given the limitations or absences of several Eagles offensive players in practice this week, the projections might account for a potential blowout.
The Eagles pass defense has been nothing short of awful. When back-up QB’s are dropping dimes on you, the only hope for the Eagles’ defense is a Baker Mayfield implosion. We do not see that happening.
