Patriots vs. Buccaneers Top Anytime TD Scorer Bets

Antonio Brown (+180)

Not only is this an all-time revenge game for Tom Brady, but it also is for Brown. He sat out the Bucs Week 3 loss against the Rams because he was on the Covid-19 list but he was activated in the middle of the week. The Patriots have allowed the seventh least yards to receivers, which doesn't bode well for Brown, but considering that the Pats opponents so far have been the Dolphins, Jets, and Alvin-Kamara-led Saints it makes sense. On opening night of the season, Brown reeled in 5 passes for 121 yards and a score. I think Brady throws for 3 maybe even 4 touchdowns tonight and one will be to AB84 so he can also get his revenge on his former team.

OJ Howard (+380)

With the news Gronk was ruled out for this game we were all disappointed as we wanted to see him and Tom get their revenge together in New England. As a result, I'm looking at Howard to step in here and find the endzone. The Pats are number one in the NFL at defending the tight end position but they have yet to face anyone even close to what the Bucs are capable of. You're probably wondering why I'm not on Cameron Brate in this spot being that he got 45 percent of snaps compared to Howards 19 percent. The answer is simple, Howards price of (+380) is too good to pass up compared to Brate at (+190). Last season, Howard paced the Bucs Tight End room in passing-game usage prior to a season-ending injury in Week 4. Despite Gronk playing more snaps (212 to 125) and running more routes (87 to 58), Howard out-targeted him 19 to 14 in the first four weeks. Howard posted 11 catches, 146 yards, and 2 touchdowns. Brady and Howard have shown they can have a connection so for this price and with the expectation of Brady throwing three-plus touchdowns, I like Howard.

Mike Evans (+140)

I tried to dig for a Patriot here but there's nothing standing out. N'Keal Harry may be rejoining the wide receivers, James White was placed on IR. There's too much unknown and the Tampa pass rush is going to be a lot for the rookie Mac Jones to withstand. So I'm going with a trusty pick here in Mike Evans. He scored twice in Week 2 and led Tampa last season in scores. In a game we're expecting Brady to put his mark on, Evans to score at plus money is a simple decision.
