Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers get another primetime spotlight on Thursday Night Football, but teammates Leonard Fournette and Antonio Brown are the players getting action in the prop betting market.
The Bucs have been 7-point favorites most of the week, with the line teetering to 6.5 at some sportsbooks. With a total of 52.5, it’s expected points will be in abundance so bettors are hoping to cash in on touchdowns in a big Tampa Bay win.
According to data released by BetMGM on Thursday, the most-bet props surround Fournette and Brown scoring in a Bucs big win.
The most popular prop is Fournette scoring the first touchdown of the game at +900 (bet $100 for profit $900). Fournette picked up his first rushing touchdown of the year last week against the Dolphins, but it was teammate Giovanni Bernard picking up the first score.
The second most-bet prop is Antonio Brown scoring a touchdown at anytime during the game at +125 odds. Brown has caught a touchdown in two of the four games he’s played in this year, including two last week against Miami. His seven catches for 124 yards was good for his best output of the season.Buccaneers vs. Eagles Prop Betting Market Report

To this point, 69% of bets are on the Bucs as the road favorite to cover with 75% of the money on the over.
