5 Great Buccaneers Super Bowl Bets Including Gronk & Brady
Tom Brady will take the field for Super Bowl 55 to mark his 10th career showing in the big game. He’s got some new faces in the huddle this time with his first-ever appearance with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who get a home game at Raymond James Stadium.
The Buccaneers are a +3 underdog against the Kansas City Chiefs with the total set at 56. They’re also +145 on the moneyline after cruising through the NFC with postseason wins over the Washington Football Team, New Orleans Saints and Green Bay Packers.
If those bets don’t fit your eye, rest assured – nearly every NFL betting prop and exotic wager one can think of is on the board for the showdown on Feb. 7 in Tampa. Here are our favorite Buccaneers bets for Super Bowl 55.
Under 1.5 Buccaneers Field Goals Made (-120)
Ryan Succop has made his last 11 field-goal attempts, but we still like the under here. He was 4-for-4 against Washington in the Wild Card round, hit three FGS against the Saints and one last week against the Packers. Bucs coach Bruce Arians knows field goals probably won’t get it done against this Kansas City offense and will look to finish drives at every opportunity.
Kansas City also has the worst red zone defense in the league. They give up touchdowns on 74% of all opponent drives in the red zone, and Brady should be able to capitalize when the Buccaneers have their opportunities. We’re on under 1.5 Buccaneers field goals made. Bet it at DraftKings.

Tom Brady Longest Pass Completion Over 39.5 Yards (-115)
We understand why some are inclined to take the under. In 10 previous Super Bowl appearances, Brady only has two completed passes of 40-plus yards. He also only has six interceptions in those 10 games, suggesting he values ball security and the safe throw even more on the biggest stage.
Having said that, Chris Godwin has emerged as a big-time home run threat, and Brady is getting very comfortable with this offense. He completed a pass of 40-plus yards in six of the Buccaneers’ final seven regular season games, and we suspect he’ll have another one up his sleeve in Tampa. Bet it at William Hill.
Rob Gronkowski Over 29.5 Receiving Yards (-115)
The formerly retired tight end has been quiet in the postseason, but he should make a bigger impact in the Super Bowl.
He had a season-high 106 receiving yards against the Chiefs in late November, and Kansas City is in the bottom 25% of the NFL in terms of defending the tight end. There’s obviously a huge familiarity here and we expect Brady to look Gronkowski’s way for those must-have third-down pickups throughout the game. Bet it at PointsBet.

Mike Evans First Touchdown (+1000)
The Buccaneers have scored the first touchdown in all three of their playoff wins. All three have been from a receiver, and Evans had the last two with the opening scores against the Saints and the Packers.
We’re thinking Brady & Co. will want to stick with what’s been working all month and look to Evans early and often to set the tone on offense. We like the value here at +1000. Bet it at FanDuel.

Leonard Fournette Over 50.5 Rushing Yards (+100)
Fournette has emerged as the go-to guy in Tampa Bay's backfield this postseason, surpassing 50.5 rushing yards in all three games. He also has had at least 12 carries in all three playoff wins and has given opposing defenses problems.
Kansas City isn’t great against the run and ranks in the bottom half of the NFL. They’ve given up 114 rushing yards or more in four of their last five games. And they have to worry about shutting down the second-best passing offense in the league. Fournette gets it done with more than 50.5 yards on the ground. Bet it at BetMGM.
