New Orleans Saints' quarterback Drew Brees has cemented himself as one of the most reliable players at his position. He has thrown for 2,942 yards and 24 touchdowns this season and helped guide the Saints to a 9-3 record in his 12 starts. His play on Sunday will be a major factor in whether or not the team emerges victorious against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

For bettors who want to keep a particularly close eye on Adams throughout this Buccaneers-Saints clash, here are the three best Drew Brees prop bets, per odds provided by FanDuel Sportsbook.

1. Drew Brees: Over 25.5 Pass Completions (-112)

The Saints will likely be looking to pass the ball early and often against a Buccaneers' defense that has given up 25.4 completions per game this season (seventh-most in the NFL). Brees has had at least 26 completions in seven of his 12 starts this season and once against the Buccaneers back in Week 9. Plus, he averaged 31 pass attempts in 2 games against Tampa Bay this season. If he reaches that total again, he has a good shot to go over this number.

2. Drew Brees: No Interception (-164)

It's the playoffs, and that means playing clean football is as important as ever. Brees has only thrown 6 interceptions this season and none in the last two weeks. In fact, he didn't throw a pick in either of his 2 games against the Buccaneers this season. Look for him to take the safer throws and not try to force anything against this stout Buccaneer's secondary.

3. Drew Brees: Under 275.5 Passing Yards (-112)

This is a sharp line, but the best option here is to take the under on Brees' passing yards total. He has only reached this number in six of his 12 starts this season and hasn't thrown for more than 265 yards in the last two games. Also, in his two games against the Buccaneers this season, Brees has thrown for an average of just 191 yards per game. Expect the Saints to rely on their rushing attack and shorter passing plays rather than Brees' ability to push the ball downfield.
