3 Best Mike Evans Prop Bets for Buccaneers vs Saints NFC Divisional Round Game
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wideout Mike Evans continues to be one of the top talents at his position. In 2020, the star receiver posted his seventh straight season with 1,000-plus receiving yards while also hauling in 13 touchdown as Tom Brady's favorite weapon. Tampa will need the Brady-Evans connection to shine if they're to take down the New Orleans Saints in the Divisional Round.
For bettors who want to keep a particularly close eye on Evans throughout this Buccaneers-Saints clash, here are the three best Mike Evans prop bets, per odds provided by FanDuel Sportsbook.
1. Receiving Yards: Under 65.5 (-110
Evans is a prolific receiver possible of big games, but the Saints have proven to be a tough matchup for him in his career. He's only averaging 51.4 yards per game against New Orleans during his seven years in the league. With the Saints likely to key in on him with corner Marshon Lattimore, he may struggle to hit the over.
2. Any Time Touchdown Scorer: Mike Evans (+140)
Even if Evans fails to rack up yards, he can make an impact through scoring. The wideout was fourth in the NFL in receiving TDs (13) this year, and his 6-foot-5 frame gives him a serious edge over most cornerbacks in the league. Brady has looked for Evans repeatedly this season, and it would be no surprise if the two hook up at some point on Sunday.
3. Total Receptions: Under 4.5 (+110)
Evans comes into this game averaging 4.5 receptions per contest during the regular season, so it's a close call on this prop. That being said, in two games against New Orleans in 2020, Evans only managed 5 total receptions on 10 combined targets. The Saints know how to limit him, so don't expect a high reception count from Evans in this one.
