It's win-and-in for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as the team travels to Carolina to face the Panthers.
The Bucs are one win away from a surprising NFC South division title, can the team get it done against the worst team in the NFL on Sunday in the the Carolina Panthers? The Bucs will likely lean on its high usage skill position players like Raachad White and Mike Evans to get it done in Week 18.
Here's how I'm attacking both in the player prop market. You can find more on this game with our betting expert Iain MacMillian's best bets for EVERY game this weekend here!

Best Player Props for Buccaneers vs. Panthers
- Rachaad White OVER 70.5 Rushing Yards
- Mike Evans Anytime Touchdown Scorer
Rachaad White OVER 70.5 Rushing Yards
The Panthers have the worst rushing defense in the NFL this season in terms of EPA, so I expect the Bucs to attack Carolina on the ground, which should make for a heavy dose of White in the gameplan.
After four straight games of going over 80 yards on the ground, White has failed to break 50, but this matchup should suit him well, especially with Baker Mayfield dealing with a ribs injury, potentailly changing the team's plans from a pass heavy script.
White is the clear every down back in Tampa Bay, he has at least 20 rushes in four straight before a blowout loss last week had him ejected from the game script. However, as a road favorite against the worst team in the league, I expect White to have a big game.
Mike Evans Anytime Touchdown Scorer
The NFL's leader in receiving touchdowns is a good bet to show up yet again in the team's biggest game of the season.
Evans has 13 touchdown grabs on the year, emerging as Mayfield's top target. He has at least a touchdown in four of his last six games and I expect him to see a featured role on Sunday in hopes of taking the Bucs back to the postseason.
The Panthers defense is better against the pass than the run, but Evans is clearly the heavy usage target and I need to count on the team to scheme some plays to him into the end zone. I'll stick with what's been working for Tampa Bay in the biggest game of the year.
