Player Prop Bets for Buccaneers vs. Packers – NFL Championship Round, January 24, 2021

| January 19, 2021 10:38 am PDT

The NFC title game is going to be about as intense as a pro football playoff game gets. Not only does it feature two of the most legendary quarterbacks ever in Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers, but it also presents a bitter rematch.

Rodgers and Brady haven’t faced off much in their careers, but this will be meeting number two this year.

The first clash wasn’t close. Tampa Bay scored 38 unanswered points and made Rodgers look like an amateur. Will the likely league MVP rise to the occasion and strike down a talented Buccaneers defense?

Only time will tell. You can go with your gut and bet on this game, or you can just pick your spots with Buccaneers vs. Packers NFL player props.

I tend to prefer the latter, but if you do decide to bet on the game, consider using our Buccaneers vs. Packers betting preview, which can be found by hitting the NFL picks link at the top of this post.

Hopefully, that breakdown will guide you down the right path. For the props to target in this 2021 NFC Conference Championship game, read on.

Aaron Rodgers Over 2.5 Passing Touchdowns (+145)

It’s quite possible the Packers lose to the Buccaneers this weekend. Even if they do, I fully expect Aaron Rodgers to put on a show and perform considerably better than he did the last time he faced this defense.

Tampa Bay has a nasty front seven, but their weakness comes in the secondary. They can be had through the air, and given the level, Rodgers has played at for the majority of the season, I think he’ll come out with a vengeance.

He dispatched a good Rams defense relatively easily, he’s at home, and he’s topped this passing touchdown mark 12 times. With a trip to the Super Bowl on the line, look for him to do it again.

Ronald Jones II to Score a Touchdown (+200)

While the Packers should be more successful on offense in this rematch, I don’t know if their defense is going to completely stifle Tampa Bay’s ground game.

Ronald Jones II is sharing the workload with Leonard Fournette more these days, but he went off when he faced Green Bay during the regular season.

The Packers have improved against the run as a defense, but they still aren’t elite in that regard. Jones should get some solid yardage here, and I also think he’s a great bet to find the end-zone.

Jones did just that two times against the Packers back in week six, and he’s scored at least once in seven different games on the year. I love this +200 price to bank on him doing it again on Sunday.

Davante Adams Over 89.5 Receiving Yards (-112)

Go big or go home. That will have to be Green Bay’s mentality, and with a shot at the Super Bowl up for grabs, I tend to think they’ll lean on their moneymakers.

The obvious one is Davante Adams, who put together an insane 115-1,374-18 stat line during the regular season. He also racked up 66 yards and a score on nine catches against the best cover man in the game in Jalen Ramsey.

“I’m not some of the dudes you’ve covered.”

That’s what Adams told Ramsey before the game.

Some will look back to Adams’ week six performance against this Bucs defense and raise an eyebrow, but he was coming off of an injury.

Even in a down game, he still has 61 yards, and this 89.5-yard total (while fairly high) is something he eclipsed in seven games this year.

Adams didn’t really hit his stride until after that showdown with the Bucs, and now Green Bay needs him to pour in elite production more than ever. Look for him to respond with a huge game.

Chris Godwin Over 65.5 Receiving Yards (-112)

Green Bay wide receivers aren’t the only ones likely to rack up yardage this week. Antonio Brown is banged up, and Mike Evans will likely draw coverage from Jaire Alexander, which could combine to make Chris Godwin rather busy.

Godwin’s talent and role were already going to put him in a position to succeed in this matchup, but if he spends most of the day covered by Kevin King, good things should happen.

It’s also worth noting that Godwin cleared this mark seven times this year. If the Packers take Evans out of the equation, the Over feels like a lock.

Aaron Jones Under 56.5 Rushing Yards (-112)

I have Aaron Jones among my top NFL DFS picks for the Championship Round, but it’s likely due to him pounding in a short score or adding value as a receiver.

If Green Bay is to run all over a dominant Buccaneers defense, it’s pretty likely to be a team effort.

Jones mustered just 15 yards on 10 carries the last time he battled Tampa Bay, so you can see why I am not excited about a 56.5-yard total.

He’s still an explosive back with a big role, but clearing 57 rushing yards in this spot will be like pulling teeth. Bet the Under.

Mike Evans to Score a Touchdown (+160)

I mentioned that Evans is a decent bet to face off with Jaire Alexander this week. If he doesn’t (and even if he does), I still love his chances of finding the end-zone.

Evans has too much size and the ability to win difficult jump balls to bet against him, and Tom Brady really only looks to two guys when the Bucs get inside the 20.

He even went right at Marshon Lattimore and scored last week, despite previously being dominated in that matchup.

Evans is basically matchup proof, and he’s managed to haul in at least one touchdown in 11 different contests.

Given the magnitude of this game, I’ll be somewhat shocked if he doesn’t come away with a score.

Summary

If you were curious which Buccaneers vs. Packers player prop bets you wanted to target, you now have six options to consider.

There are many others, and you also will want to entertain both sides of the coin. But these six stand out the most to me, and I think they all have a fantastic chance at converting.

I’ll also be breaking down the best Bills vs. Chiefs player props before long, and there are loads more to consider when betting on the NFL moving forward.
