Baker Mayfield and the Buccaneers will try to snap Jonathan Taylor and the Colts' two-game winning streak on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium. Tampa Bay has struggled recently, losing four out of their last five games, while Indianapolis is only 1-4 at home.

I found two Buccaneers props that might go under the radar and a Colts prop involving one of their best offensive playmakers.

Best NFL Prop Bets for Buccaneers vs. Colts in Week 12

  • Chris Godwin OVER 53.5 receiving yards (-115)
  • Jonathan Taylor UNDER 80.5 rushing yards (-115)
  • Trey Palmer OVER 2.5 receptions (-130)

Chris Godwin OVER 53.5 receiving yards (-115)

With Mike Evans drawing double coverage from the Colts’ secondary, it should open up things for Chris Godwin in the intermediate part of the field. Godwin only had 39 yards in last week’s game against the 49ers despite recording six receptions on seven targets.

The veteran wide receiver has gone OVER 53.5 yards in six out of his last 10 games but only once in his past three road games. Godwin will be facing a Colts’ defense that’s ranked 28th in DVOA-WR2 but allowing 40.8 yards to the position, per ftnfantasy.com. Based on metrics, the veteran wideout should thrive in this matchup.

Jonathan Taylor UNDER 80.5 rushing yards (-115)

Bettors should look to slam the UNDER on Taylor’s rushing yards as he’ll be going up against a tough Bucs’ run defense. This season, Tampa Bay is ranked fifth in opponent rushing yards per game (90.0) and only giving up 70 yards per game in their last three games.

Taylor has gone OVER 80.5 rushing yards once this season, which was in Week 8 against the New Orleans Saints (95 yards on 12 carries). The veteran running back couldn’t do much on the ground a couple of weeks ago against the Patriots (69 yards on 23 carries), and I see the same thing happening on Sunday afternoon.

Trey Palmer OVER 2.5 receptions (-130)

I usually stay from player props priced -130 or higher, but Trey Palmer has seen an uptick in targets over the last four games. Last week against the San Francisco 49ers, the rookie receiver posted four receptions (six targets) for 22 yards. It was the fourth consecutive game that Palmer had four or more targets. 

He’s gone over 2.5 receptions in three out of his last four games. The rookie will have some opportunities to make plays in the passing game as Indianapolis’ defense worries about Evans and Godwin.
