NFL prop bets are most popular in the Super Bowl. And with so many wagering options at FanDuel Sportsbook, bettors can get a little more creative with their Super Bowl bets between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Here are 3 Tampa Bay Buccaneers prop bets for Super Bowl 55.

1. Total Number of Tampa Bay First Downs in Super Bowl: Under 23.5 (-125)

The betting support is on the under, and Tampa Bay managed just 20 first downs in their 27-24 Week 12 loss to the Chiefs, needing to score two TD's in the fourth quarter to make it close. Both teams are more capable of big plays with their outstanding offensive weapons, which means more chunk yards and fewer first downs on sustained drives. Tampa's offense has really been scoring at a higher clip the last six games, but this prop is still a bit high.

2. What Will Happen First For Tampa Bay? Punt (-115)

The prop is whether Tampa Bay will score or punt first. While Tampa Bay's offense has been more efficient and scoring at a higher rate in its last six games, the Super Bowl jitters and mistakes can magnify early in a big game. That includes a penalty, holding or allowing a sack. Those plays clearly make a punt more likely on the Bucs opening possession, and a chance to cash in an early prop bet in Super Bowl 55. Tom Brady's Super Bowl history also points to a slow start.

3. Team to Have More Time of Possession: Buccaneers (+100)

The Bucs may be the underdogs here, but the way the Chiefs' offense operates doesn't always lend itself to high time of possession (TOP). They rank just 16th in average TOP this season, thanks in part to their ability to score so quickly. The Buccaneers' run defense is also one of their biggest strengths, so KC isn't likely to bleed the clock with many rush attempt in this one.
