Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady has a number of receiver weapons to target in the Super Bowl 55 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs. Wide receiver Antonio Brown missed the NFC Championship Game due to a knee injury, and he has been limited in practice this week.
Brown was signed and added to the Buccaneers roster for the final eight games of the season. He produced 45 catches for 483 yards and 4 touchdowns.
Here are the three best Antonio Brown prop bets, per odds provided by FanDuel Sportsbook.
1. Antonio Brown - Receiving Yards: Under 41.5 (-110)
Brown's production against the Saints was 1 catch for 10 yards, though he did leave early due to an injury. The previous playoff game he caught 2 passes for 49 yards and a touchdown against Washington. Brady has not looked his way as a primary receiver. The potential knee issue and flare up could be more problematic than Buccaneers are letting on heading into the Super Bowl.
2. Antonio Brown - Receptions: Under 3.5 (-106)
Along with Brown's limited role in the playoffs, he caught just 2 passes for 11 yards against the Chiefs in a 27-24 Week 12 loss. The Buccaneers were playing from behind and passing in the second half, and Brown was still not a focus. Brady targeted him just 3 times in the game.
3. Antonio Brown - Longest Reception: Under 18.5 yards (-112)
So projection is for Brown to play a limited role in the Super Bowl with receivers Mike Evans and Chris Godwin serving as Brady's primary targets. Also, TEs Rob Gronkowski and Cameron Brate will be on Brady's radar underneath. Even WR Scotty Miller become a deep target with the huge touchdown catch against the Packers. If Brown only catches 1 or 2 passes like his recent performances, it's unlikely to go for 19-plus yards, as the other wideouts have been more prolific deep threats recently.
