Big money has come for Tampa Bay to win the Divisional Round over New Orleans. The line has moved to 2.5 with online sportsbooks, which is sizable.
However, we are interested in the NFL Prop Bets on Sunday. Online betting wouldn’t be the same with prop bets, and BetUS has some fantastic value options available for Buccaneers vs. Saints.
We have five of the best NFL Prop Bet selections, including First Touchdown Scorer.
Player To Score First Touchdown
We can’t look past Mike Evans to score the first touchdown.
Evans, despite recent injuries, has scored 13 touchdowns. It has helped to have Tom Brady throw to you, but Evans has made his own luck for the Buccaneers.
Leonard Fournette opened as the +800 favorite in this NFL market, but steady money has come for Evans. Fournette is now on the second line of betting at +850, with Evans taking over as favorite.
We are not surprised by the weight of money, and he should give bettors a good sight on Sunday night.
Prediction: Mike Evans +800
Player To Score A Touchdown
Antonio Brown is a highly controversial player, but the Buccaneers wide receiver is a great chance to score.
He is coming off a touchdown against Washington, and prior to that, he scored two touchdowns against Atlanta. Brown is in stellar form, and it would take a brave bettor to bet against him having an impact in this game.
Tom Brady should be looking for Brown as a consistent receiver, and because plenty of points should be scored, Brown will get his chance.
The 32-year-old still has fire in his belly, and bettors shouldn’t pass up on the +150 odds for Brown to score a touchdown.
Prediction: Antonio Brown +150
Player To Score First Saints Touchdown
We have talked about the Buccaneers’ touchdown scorers, but have yet to mention the talented Saints roster.
Drew Brees has many weapons on his offense, including wide receiver Michael Thomas. The 27-year-old has had a frustrating season, which included an ankle injury that saw him miss the last three regular-season games.
However, Thomas opens the field up for Brees and he could be the beneficiary. Thomas could use his size to out-jump the Buccaneers’ defenders, so he could get on the board early in the game like he did when scoring first last week.
Alvin Kamara is the favorite at BetUS, but the value is with Thomas to score the first Saints touchdown.
Prediction: Michael Thomas +375
First Score Of The Game
Bettors will know the result of this prop bet in the first quarter, which makes it a fun option.
We typically fancy a touchdown as the first scoring play, but we are selecting Any Other Score to come up trumps on Sunday.
Tampa Bay kicked a field goal to start its game against Washington, so we predict something similar happening against the Saints. Conversely, if the Saints possess the ball first, we think Drew Brees will be conservative with the ball.
Alvin Kamara is likely to get plenty of carries early, which could set up a field goal attempt to start the game.
Prediction: Any Other Score +150
Shortest Touchdown In The Game
A prop bet can require luck, which is the case with this market. If a team gets to the one-yard line, the Over 1.5 yards option is all but toast. However, we are taking the Over in this game.
Unless there is a penalty in the end zone, we don’t expect either team to be camped on the goal line. Most of the touchdowns scored should come from long passes or runs.
If you are looking for something a bit different, take the Over 1.5 yards for a bit of fun.
