Los Angeles Rams vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Player Prop Picks: Tyler Higbee Goes HAM

It took me forever for this one so that's my bad.

Error fetching data.

Tyler Higbee 50+ Receiving Yards @ +130 (Bet $100 to win $130)

Odds available at FanDuel at time of publishing

I'm at FanDuel for this one because they have the escalators. I looked at DraftKings for something like this and they only have wild ones for seemingly everyone but Higbee. When I say wild, I mean like you would have to be an idiot to take them. Not a smart idiot like us either, a dumb one. BetMGM and Barstool don't have the escalators so they're not an option either.

Alright so Higbee didn't get home last week on 50+ but he did get his "regular" number so we played the escalator for free. No harm, no foul. This week, I think he does it. First off, I bet the Buccaneers score on these guys. They're not the Arizona Cardinals. The Rams can't just run all day and have Matt Stafford only throw the ball 17 times again.

The way I see it, this could be a game where Stafford throws the ball close to 40 times. He could even be in play for a 300+ yard game. But, I'd rather go with Higbee since he only needs 50 yards. That's really not that much. Especially against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

On the season, only five teams gave up more receptions to the tight end position. The haters are going to say that only three teams gave up more receptions to the wide receiver position than the Buccaneers so we should go there and they're not wrong. I'm just saying that Higbee seems to be the lowest of the low-hanging fruit. They're making people pay for Cooper Kupp.

At the end of the day, we just need the Rams to play from behind here which is likely. He had gone over this total in his two previous games before LA blew the doors off of Arizona. This could be the easiest bet of the week now that I think about it.
