Best NFL Prop Bets for Panthers vs. Buccaneers in Week 17 #Raiders #NFL #Steelers #HereWeGo #Pickett #Franco

The Carolina Panthers are somehow still alive for the NFC South, but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers can clinch that playoff spot with a win in this Week 17 showdown.

I backed Sam Darnold and the Panthers over Tom Brady’s Bucs earlier in the week because I love Carolina’s run game. Maybe Brady will have some magic and find a way to win, but we can still cash in on some prop bets, or maybe I’ll be right on all accounts and really win big.

Here are my three favorite Panthers vs. Bucs best prop bets to decide the likely winner of the division.

Best NFL Prop Bets for Panthers vs. Buccaneers

  • D’Onta Foreman Over 56.5 Rush Yards (-114)
  • Sam Darnold Rush Yards Over 14.5 (-114)
  • Leonard Fournette Over 42.5 Rush Yards (-115)

D’Onta Foreman Over 56.5 Rush Yards (-114)

Sure, there was the Pittsburgh game where Carolina forgot to run the ball, but that was an outlier.

The Panthers motto has been “Keep Pounding” for years and that’s the strategy that Steve Wilks has instituted. Last week, they ran for 320 yards against Detroit, and while the Lions have a much worse run defense than Tampa Bay, the Bucs are not the Bucs of two years ago.

Foreman might carry this team right into an unlikely playoff appearance.

Sam Darnold Rush Yards Over 14.5 (-114)

Chubba Hubbard is the No. 2 rusher in this backfield, but Darnold is No. 3. He’s been using his legs fairly effectively since taking over the starting job. Not on high volume at all, but last week he had six carries for 19 yards and a touchdown, and two weeks ago he had four carries for 30 yards.

It looks like running the ball is becoming part of Darnold’s repertoire and he’s playing the best football of his career in these past four weeks.

Leonard Fournette Over 42.5 Rush Yards (-115)

Playoff Lenny is the lead back on the worst rushing team in the entire NFL. The Bucs are running for 77.0 yards per game, but last week Fournette started to reemerge. He had 20 attempts and finished with 72 yards. Not efficient at all, but the volume is all I’m looking for.
