Tom Brady will look to replicate Year 1 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers heading into the 2021 season. He is already considered to be the best quarterback in NFL history, and he proved he could win a Super Bowl without Bill Belichick. Tampa Bay will return all the key players to last year’s roster, and Brady will have a ton of talented pass catchers to throw to once again.

Here, we’ll take a look at the prop bets on the table for Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady on DraftKings Sportsbook ahead of the 2021 NFL season and make our picks.

4750.5 passing yards: Over (-110) or Under (-110)

Our pick: Over

Brady is one of the most durable players in the NFL, and he threw for 4,633 yards in 2020. With a 17th regular season game this season, we’re betting he goes over this total even though Brady hasn’t thrown for this many yards in any of the previous five seasons. He will have the best group of pass catchers to throw to in the NFL with Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Antonio Brown as the top three wide receivers with a talented tight end room including Rob Gronkowski, O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate.

36.5 passing TDs: Over (-105) or Under (-110)

Our pick: Over

The over is fantastic value in this spot because of how many receiving threats are on this roster. Brady threw 40 touchdowns in 2020, and there is not much reason for this number to drop all that much especially with an extra regular season game. It’s possible the Buccaneers will run the ball more when they get in close, but Evans, Gronkowski and Howard are real red zone threats as each of them stand 6-foot-5 or taller.
