With no Antonio Brown or Chris Godwin, bettors on Sunday are hoping Tom Brady looks toward old friend Rob Gronkowski often between the Philadelphia Eagles and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Bucs host the Eagles in the first playoff game on Sunday (1 p.m. ET), with Tampa still a 7.5-point favorite. The line has been dropping on Sunday morning amid weather concerns. 

With a high spread and uncertainty around the total, bettors are targeting Gronkowski in the player prop market.

According to data released by BetMGM on Sunday, the three most-bet player props at the sportsbook are all on ‘Gronk.’

Will Brady look his way early? Gronkowski to score the first touchdown is the most popular play at +750 odds (bet $100, profit $750). Gronkowski scoring a touchdown at any time is the second-most popular play among the public at +110.

Gronkowski has scored six times this year. Interestingly, he’s scored those all in just three games. He scored twice in each game against the Atlanta Falcons this year and another two in the season-opener against the Dallas Cowboys. He has not scored since Dec. 5.

While he hasn’t found the end zone, he has racked up plenty of yards in the last two weeks. With over 100 yards receiving in back-to-back games, it’s no surprise bettors are rushing to bet the over on his prop Sunday of 60.5 yards.

He’s eclipsed that mark in six of his 12 games he’s played in this season.

The total is 46.5, but be sure to follow our real-time odds page for the latest as weather and betting information changes.
