Sunday Night Football Prop Bets

Here are three of the best prop bets for the Buccaneers vs Cardinals matchup, courtesy of NFL odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Buccaneers vs Cardinals Sunday Night Football Prop Bets Tonight

1. Chris Godwin - Receiving Yards: Over 67.5 (-114)

This prop bet is all about volume. Chris Godwin has developed into quarterback Tom Brady's favorite option in the passing attack. The Penn State product has logged at least 8 targets in each of his last nine games played. Godwin has reached the 68-yard mark five times during that span and his drop percentage on the season sits at an impressive 2.6%. He draws a great matchup on Sunday night, too, as the Cardinals have allowed the 12th-most receptions to opposing wide receivers (180). The Buccaneers have been a favorite of 7 or more points three times this year and did not cover in any of those games. A close score will force Tampa Bay to keep passing.

2. Trace McSorley - Passing Yards: Under 186.5 (-114)

Arizona will be forced to turn to a third different starting quarterback in 2022 thanks to injuries suffered by Kyler Murray and Colt McCoy. Trace McSorley will draw his first career start on Sunday night against a Tampa Bay secondary that has been frustrating opposing QBs all season long. The Buccaneers have posted the 10th-best pass defense DVOA rating in the NFL and are tied for the fourth-fewest passing yards allowed per game mark (194.5). They have already held players like Joe Burrow (200 yards), Matthew Stafford (165) and Marcus Mariota (147) to passing totals far below their season averages. Don't expect a big day from the inexperienced 27-year-old averaging 5.7 yards per attempt this season.

3. Anytime Touchdown Scorer: Leonard Fournette

Tampa Bay showed a committee approach in the backfield last week as Leonard Fournette tallied 14 touches and Rachaad White racked up 12 touches. It was Fournette that played in more snaps (58%), though, and saw work near the end zone. Arizona is tied for the sixth-most rushing touchdowns allowed to opposing RBs this season (12) and has also allowed 4 receiving touchdowns to the position. The Cardinals allow 4.6 yards per carry as well (No. 23 in NFL). The Buccaneers should adjust after their reliance on the passing attack opened the door for the Cincinnati Bengals to make a comeback in Week 15. It's obvious that additional touches for Fournette means he has a higher opportunity to score.
