Player Props, Anytime TD Scorer Bets for Cowboys-Bucs NFL Playoff Game
Leonard Fournette Over 40.5 (-105, PointsBet) | Anytime TD Scorer (+133, BetRivers)
Leonard Fournette had a day when he faced the Dallas Cowboys in Week 1. In fact, the Tampa Bay RB had his best rushing day of the season with 127 yards and 6.0 YPC.
Fournette doesn’t even have to match half his rushing total from the teams’ first meeting of the season for the Over to cash Monday night.
Tampa Bay saw Fournette rush for over 40 yards on eight occasions this season. This is the playoffs, so look for the Bucs to ride their workhorse back against the league’s 11th-worst rushing defense.
If Fournette has a big game, he’ll probably register a touchdown as well. BetRivers has the best value on Anytime TD with +133.

Ezekiel Elliott Anytime TD Scorer (+116, BetRivers)
Superstar players are the go-to for teams in big games. It doesn’t get any more important than the NFL Playoffs, and for that reason, look for Elliott to get in the end zone.
For comparison, Caesars thinks the probability is higher and set its line at -115.
Of course, if you think Elliott scores first or multiple times, then your payout increases.

Tony Pollard Anytime TD Scorer (+205, Caesars)
Just because the Cowboys look to get Zeke involved doesn’t mean they’ll shy away from their top rusher. Pollard will still be involved in the Dallas offense and has more favorable odds for bettors who think he’ll score.
Ceasars Sportsbook is coming in with the best line at +205, with FanDuel offering +185.
The Bucs have allowed 29 passing touchdowns, second most in the NFL, and Pollard could be a red zone option in the passing game. Of course, they could opt to hand off to him as well. Pollard had nine rushing TDs and three through the air this past regular season.
Divisional round: NFL Betting Lines
Tom Brady Over 272.5 (-113, BetRivers)
The Cowboys have been one of the best defenses against the passing game. In fact, they finished the season at number eight in yards allowed.
But with this expected to be a back-and-forth affair, Brady will likely have plenty of opportunity to sling the ball around. Playing at home has to come as an advantage to one of the best of all time in the playoffs.
The total for Brady’s passing yards is hovering around 272.5 to 277.5, depending on your sportsbook of choice.
