Super Bowl Sunday is upon us, which means the floodgates have opened at DraftKings Sportsbook, who are offering a line on just about every single aspect of the big game. Julian Edlow is focused in on the Kansas City Chiefs side of things, so I’ll go ahead and take the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. You can read up on my favorite ways to bet on the team as a whole here, but below are some of my favorite player prop bets on DraftKings Sportsbook.

This could be my favorite bet on the board for the whole game. Fournette has scored a touchdown in every game this postseason, twice on the ground and once through the air, emerging as one of the top options for Tampa Bay over the past four weeks. He has been a revelation, running better than he has all season, going for 4.89 yards per carry against Washington and 4.58 yards per carry against Green Bay. Tampa Bay will likely want to lean on the ground game against the 19th-ranked rushing defense versus a strong passing defense that tormented Aaron Rodgers last time out, so I think Fournette should be a pretty big part of the offense and a good bet to find paydirt.
Tom Brady’s brilliance this postseason has been his ability to spread the ball out to seemingly every person on the roster with hands, and now that Antonio Brown is going to be playing on Sunday, the targets shouldn’t be astronomical for Godwin. Not only has Godwin hit this over just eight times in 20 games this year, he’s also caught just 50% of his targets during the playoffs, dealing with drops. When you combine the lower targets with the poor catch stats, it’s hard to see him having a monster game through the air.
Yes, I know, another touchdown prop from the same team. How many can they score?! Hear me out, though.
I’m going to go back to the well here, once again, to back Gronk to make an impact for the Buccaneers. He tied for the team lead in red-zone targets this year, according to NFL Savant, and had one in Tampa Bay’s win over Washington a couple games back, followed by five total targets against New Orleans. He wasn’t all that involved against Green Bay, though he was looked to on a huge screen pass in the fourth quarter.
Point being, Gronk is always part of the game plan for Tampa, especially when they get down near the goal line. Cameron Brate is currently dealing with an injury and may miss this game, so this appears to be a tremendous value, especially if he winds up being the lone tight end running routes.
