Prop #1: Tom Brady Completions
Including the playoffs, Brady has completed 26 or more passes in eight of his last 10 starts.
That doesn’t include his Week 1 start against these same Cowboys, when he went 32-for-50 for 379 yards and four TD passes along with a pair of interceptions.
Hard to believe, but the 45-year-old was money again last year, throwing for a career-high 5,316 yards, with 43 TD tosses against 12 interceptions. Brady also set a career-best mark for completions in a season, with 485.
Unsurprisingly, 44-year-old Tom Brady looking physically + mentally sharp. 9 play, 94-yard drive in just 4:09. Capped off by Brady TD to Chris Godwin.

The Bucs love to chuck the ball — they were the only team to crack the 700+ attempt plateau, more than 50 attempts clear of 2nd-place KC. I feel like this one’s a good place to start.
Looking for a little extra action? How can you turn down a rushing total of 0.5 yards? That’s the ground number Brady has for Sunday. While he had zero rushes and yards in their meeting with the Cowboys a season ago, TB12 crossed the requisite half-yard total in 12 of 17 games last season. It’s too good to pass up.
- Tom Brady OVER 25.5 completions; 1 unit to win 0.91 units
- Tom Brady OVER 0.5 rush yards; 1 unit to win 0.91 units
Prop #2: CeeDee Lamb Receptions
Just a season ago, Dallas had arguably one of the top pass-catching groups in the NFL. Things done changed.
Amari Cooper and Cedric Wilson are on new teams, while Michael Gallup still isn’t quite back yet from an ACL tear that ended his 2021 campaign. The only guy left standing is CeeDee Lamb.
Dak Prescott connects with CeeDee Lamb for their first TD of the season 😤
— Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) September 10, 2021
He had a nice night for the Cowboys against these same Bucs last season, seeing 15 targets while hauling in seven balls for 104 yards and a TD.
Lamb should be the centrepiece of Dallas’ passing game, and he does well with volume. In each of the nine games when he was targeted seven times or more last year, he had at least six receptions.
- CeeDee Lamb OVER 5.5 receptions; 1 unit to win 0.65 units
Buccaneers vs Cowboys Scoring Props
|Player||Odds to Score 1st TD||Odds to Score Any TD|
|Leonard Fournette (TB)||+700||-110|
|Ezekiel Elliott (DAL)||+750||-105|
|Mike Evans (TB)||+800||+105|
|CeeDee Lamb (DAL)||+850||+110|
|Chris Godwin (TB)||+950||+135|
|Dalton Schultz (DAL)||+1200||+170|
|Julio Jones (TB)||+1300||+185|
|Russell Gage (TB)||+1300||+185|
|Tony Pollard (DAL)||+1500||+205|
|Jalen Tolbert (DAL)||+1700||+255|
|Rachaad White (TB)||+1800||+260|
Both teams’ leading running backs are the only players favored at odds-on to score an anytime touchdown on Sunday: Ezekiel Elliott and Leonard Fournette.
Buccaneers vs Cowboys Touchdown Scorer Odds
Dating back to last season, veteran Bucs receiver Mike Evans has found paydirt in five of the last six games. With Rob Gronkowski retired, Chris Godwin and Russell Gage each a little dinged up, look for Brady to hook up with a player he trusts when Tampa finds their way into the red zone.

After a nine-game stretch where he caught a single TD pass, Shultz did finish the year strong, hauling in TD passes in three of Dallas’ final four games.
- Mike Evans anytime TD scorer; 1 unit to win 1.05 units
