3 Best Prop Bets for Buccaneers vs Saints NFC Divisional Round Game
By Max Staley
The Divisional Round closes out with arguably the most anticipated matchup of the weekend, as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers take on the New Orleans Saints. The two have met twice before this season, with New Orleans winning both games. Unsurprisingly, the Saints are 3-point favorites, per FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL playoff odds.
If you're looking to get a little more creative with your wagering this weekend, there are a ton ofNFL prop bets available on FanDuel Sportsbook. Here are three of the best prop bets for this Buccaneers-Saints clash.
Buccaneers vs Saints Prop Bets
3. Any Time Touchdown Scorer: Antonio Brown (+210)
After an underwhelming start to his career in Tampa Bay, Antonio Brown has really turned it on. The wideout has scored at least 1 TD in each of his last four appearances, racking up a total of 5 scores in that time. This game has the second-highest over/under of the week at 52 points so it's likely to be a shootout. And with the way he's been playing lately, AB has a decent shot to get in on the action himself.
2. Alvin Kamara - Rushing Yards: Under 60.5 (-112)
Alvin Kamara will make an impact on this game, but it's not likely to be as a rusher. The Buccaneers are the best run defense in the league and it's not particularly close. Tampa Bay is the league's No. 1 rushing defense by DVOA and the Buccaneers were the only team in the NFL that surrendered fewer than 1,400 rushing yards (1,289). In two games against Tampa Bay this season, Kamara is averaging 28.0 rushing yards per game, going under this total on both occasions. It makes more sense for New Orleans to use him as a receiver than a rusher in this one.
1. Tom Brady - Passing Yards: Over 296.5 (-112)
It looks like Tom Brady has put his early-season struggles behind him. Over his last four appearances, he's averaging 379.5 passing yards per outing. He's also recorded at least 348 passing yards in all four showings, including Week 16, when he only played the first half. In a game that the oddsmakers expect the Buccaneers to be playing from behind, expect Tampa Bay to be throwing the ball early and often.
