The Super Bowl is almost here as the Kansas City Chiefs will take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this Sunday at 6:40 p.m. If you want to bet on some action outside of the spread and total, looking at player prop bets is always a fun and interesting venture.
With that in mind, there are a variety of prop bets listed on FanDuel Sportsbook for this big showdown. Let's take a look at the three best Tom Brady bets for Super Bowl 55.
Tom Brady Super Bowl Prop Bets
1. Tom Brady Passing Yards: Under 296.5 (-110)
This one is tough because the game features such a high total (55.5), but expect Brady to throw for 296 yards or less in this one. Brady threw for just 199 yards in the divisional round of the playoffs and finished last week's NFC championship game with 280 passing yards. It would be surprising to see him rack up a lot of yards here unless the Buccaneers go down by two scores early on. The best way for the Buccaneers to win this game is by keeping the offense on the field and putting together long, time-consuming successful drives. That formula doesn't bode well for a huge passing day from Brady.
2. Tom Brady Passing Touchdowns: Over 2.5 (+132)
While he may not rack up a lot of yards through the air, Brady should focus on throwing the ball when the Buccaneers get down near the end zone. As a team, Tampa Bay had 42 passing touchdowns in the regular season versus just 16 rushing touchdowns. In fact, Brady threw for 3 touchdowns just last week against the Green Bay Packers. When these two teams first met back in Week 12, Brady ended up with 3 passing touchdowns in that game as well. He would be smart to take advantage of a Chief's defense that gave up 29 passing touchdowns in the regular season this year (T-11th most in the NFL).
3. Tom Brady Super Bowl MVP: Yes (+200)
If you expect the Buccaneers to emerge victorious in this game, then taking a shot on Brady winning the MVP award is not such a bad idea. He will have to have a big game if Tampa Bay wants any shot of upsetting the defending champions. A quarterback has won the MVP award in 30 of the 54 Super Bowls thus far, which is 23 times more than the next closest position (RB). Brady has won the MVP award in four of his six Super Bowl wins. Simply put, securing this bet at odds of +200 is almost like taking the Buccaneers moneyline at better odds.
