The NFL's Wild Card Round playoff slate features an exciting showdown between the Philadelphia Eagles and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Here's three of the best prop bets for this NFC playoff clash, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Eagles vs Buccaneers Prop Bets

1. Tom Brady - Passing Yards: Over 276.5 (-114)

This number simply seems too low for a quarterback that finished the regular season with the most passing yards in the NFL (5,316). Tom Brady averaged a healthy 312.7 yards through the air per game and picked apart this Eagles defense for 297 yards back in Week 6. Overall, Philadelphia has posted the eighth-worst pass defense DVOA rating and is giving up the highest opponent completion percentage in the league (69.4%). The Buccaneers' guide to winning this game is consistently passing the ball down the field. Bettors shouldn't let a little rain in the forecast deter them from backing Brady on the biggest stage.

2. Dallas Goedert - Receiving Yards: Over 55.5 (-110)

The Eagles may be forced to throw the ball if they get down early in this one. That bodes well for tight end Dallas Goedert's chances of racking up at least 56 receiving yards. The fourth-year pro cashed the over on this bet in three of his final four regular season games and averaged 84.8 yards per contest during that span. Keep in mind that Tampa Bay is lacking any sort of depth in the secondary. It has led to the Buccaneers allowing 238.9 passing yards per game this season (No. 21 in NFL). Look for quarterback Jalen Hurts' to continue relying on his top target.

3. Rob Gronkowski - Anytime Touchdown Scorer (+125)

It doesn't get much easier than trusting a tight end to score against Philadelphia. The Eagles gave up a league-high 14 touchdowns to opposing tight ends in the regular season. Rob Gronkowski was not healthy enough to play back in Week 6, but the Eagles did let OJ Howard reach the end zone in that contest. The five-time Pro Bowler has become Brady's favorite target as of late, racking up 20 targets over his last two games played. He has seen 12 red zone looks over 12 games played and should have no trouble finding the open gaps on Sunday afternoon. This bet has a lot of value at plus odds.
