For the first time in the history of the National Football League, the defending champion is returning from the Super Bowl with his entire starting XI. The Buccaneers players’ props of 2021 reflect this across all of the legal sports betting markets.
Brady the GOAT. Lombardi Lenny. RoJo. Evans and Godwin. Grönk. Shaq Barrett. They are all back, along with the rest of the offensive and defensive units of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Whether the Bucs repeat themselves as champions is a discussion in itself, but the issue is how the odds makers view the Bucs’ best players.
Hopefully, Florida sports betting apps for Bucs and other NFL fans in the state are coming soon to legally participate in the promotion.

QB Tom Brady
Brady’s 2020 season was incredible, ending with over 4,600 yards of pass (third in the league) and 40 touchdowns (second in the league) at the age of 43. What will 2021 look like? It has the shortest offering among the Buccaneers 2021 player props in the major NFL betting markets.

RB Leonard Fournette
Never would have known during the Super Bowl that Fournette was almost cut in week 14. With his Lombardi-Lenny personality, Fournette rumbled for 89 yards (5.6 yards per carry) and a TD on the floor, catching four passes for 46 yards. Overall, however, his season has been tepid: 600 yards and six touchdowns, and odds makers take this into account when setting the lines for Fournette’s 2020 season:
RB Ronald Jones II
RoJo was clearly the best back on the team in 2020, missing a 1,000 yard season by 22 yards. Jones’ best highlight came in Week 5 when he uncorked a 98-yard touchdown run against the Panthers. Looking ahead to 2021, the odds makers see Jones’ regular season production slowing:
WR Mike Evans
Evans made history in 2020 by becoming the first wide receiver in league history to begin his career with seven consecutive 1,000-yard seasons. On the way into the 2021 season, the odds makers Evans are setting around the 1,000 yard mark for an eighth season in a row:
WR Chris Godwin
Godwin was productive in the 12 games he played last year, collecting more than 800 yards and scoring seven touchdowns. Had he not missed time due to various injuries, Godwin would likely have had a more productive season than Evans. Odds makers believe Godwin will have more yards than Evans but fewer touchdowns.
WR Antonio Brown
After a few dramatic offseasons, Brown joined the Bucs and became a valuable part of the passing game, including a Super Bowl touchdown, in the second half of the season and playoffs. This is how the quota makers see him in 2021:
TE Rob Gronkowski
The last time we saw Gronk, he and Brady were celebrating the two tight end tuddies at Super Bowl LV. With Gronk’s most productive days behind him, Vegas still has plenty of lines for the thundering passport catcher:
LB Shaq Barrett
Barrett’s 2020 eight-sack season didn’t quite match his 19.5-sack 2019 season, but he shrugged that off and had a fantastic playoff run, scoring four sacks in the NFC championship game and the Super Bowl. Odds-makers believe Barrett’s total layoffs will bounce back in 2021:
