First Touchdown Scorer
The Bucs have had frequently seen wide receiver Mike Evans reach the end zone with ease. His 13 touchdowns on the season is ahead by a decent amount, with running back Rachaad White with nine total touchdowns. This week, DraftKings has the odds for White as the first touchdown scorer at +450, while Evans is set at +550.
Quarterback Baker Mayfield has been a difference maker in the Bucs offense, putting up scores and yardage to keep the team ahead on the scoreboard and in possession of the football. We could see more of the same this week. However, DraftKings has set the bar low with an over/under for Mayfield set at 233.5 at -115.
Tampa Bay recorded three sacks back in Week 4 when they faced the Saints. Two came from defensive tackle Vita Vea. This week, the New Orleans Saints backfield may be filled with a couple new names they aren’t very familiar with and one of those names is rookie Yaya Diaby. His over/under in sacks is set at 0.25 at +195 for the over and -260 for the under.
