Best Same Game Parlay Picks for Buccaneers vs. Bills
- Chris Godwin OVER 5.5 Receptions (+102)
- James Cook OVER 17.5 Receiving Yards (-113)
- Josh Allen Anytime Touchdown (+195)
- Mike Evans OVER 59.5 Receiving Yards (-113)
Chris Godwin OVER 5.5 Receptions (+102)
For the Buccaneers to win tonight, they will need to feature Chris Godwin a ton in the passing game, as the Bills’ defense will look to keep Mike Evans under wraps. Godwin has seen his target share increase over the last three games (30 targets), a notable increase from Weeks 1-3 (19 targets).
Godwin has gone over 5.5 receptions in three out of six games and should notch at least six receptions against a Buffalo defense that’s ranked 19th in DVOA-WR2 (3.9%) this season, according to ftnfnatasy.com.
James Cook OVER 17.5 Receiving Yards (-113)
James Cook has made plays in the passing game for the Bills this season and has already surpassed his receiving yards total from last season (180). The second-year running back has posted 17 receptions (21 targets) for 186 yards.
Cook has gone over 17.5 receiving yards in four out of seven games this season and will face a Tampa Bay defense that saw Falcons RB Tyler Allgeier have three receptions (three targets) for 53 yards. The Bucs have allowed 38.5 receiving yards per game to running backs this season, making this a favorable matchup for Cook.
Josh Allen Anytime Touchdown (+195)
If the Bills can get into the red zone, we must watch out for a rushing touchdown from star quarterback Josh Allen. The Bucs’ defense has allowed three rushing touchdowns to QBs this season, including one last week to Falcons QB Desmond Ridder.
Allen has four rushing touchdowns this season (all inside the red zone) and is second on the Bills in red zone rushing attempts (11), per ftnfantasy.com. The Buccaneers have the best red zone defense in the NFL (22.2%), per Pro Football Reference. However, it’s not easy to bring down Allen, and with Cook in the backfield, the Buccaneers will have their hands full.
Mike Evans OVER 59.5 Receiving Yards (-113)
For our final leg, we’ll take the over on Mike Evans’ receiving yards prop, who had a good bounce-back performance last week against the Falcons. The star wide receiver posted six receptions (eight targets) for 82 yards.
Evans has gone over 59.5 receiving yards in four out of six games this season and averaged 5.7 receptions. The 30-year-old pass-catcher might be in store for a monster performance as the Bills are ranked 30th in DVOA-WR1 (46.5%). Buffalo is also allowing 62.3 receiving yards per game to WR1s this season.
