In an NFC South clash with playoff implications for both teams, the New Orleans Saints (6-7) head to Florida to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (10-3).
The Saints have been snake-bit all season and are now playing with their third different starting quarterback at the helm in Taysom Hill. But amazingly, they’re still in the NFC playoff hunt.
The Bucs, on the other hand, are rolling along and fighting for home-field advantage in the NFC, so Tom Brady and Co. will be keeping their foot on the gas in this one.
Let’s dig in to find the best Saints vs Buccaneers prop bets for this weekend’s NFC South battle.
Please note that all NFL Week 15 odds and lines are current as of 11:00 p.m. ET on Friday, December 17.
Saints vs Buccaneers Prop Bets: NFL Week 15 Prop Betting Picks
Alvin Kamara: Over 88.5 Total Rushing Plus Receiving Yards (-110) at Caesars
The Saints really have nothing else going for them on the offensive side of the ball besides Alvin Kamara. And now that he’s healthy again, they’re likely to lean on him as much as possible this week.
While the Buccaneers have a tough run defense, this prop graciously factors in receiving yards! And Kamara has only fallen short of this total in two of his nine games this season.

Alvin Kamara: Over 53.5 Total Rushing Yards (-120) at Caesars
As I said, the Saints offense runs through Kamara, so I feel good about going back to the well on this one. Kamara has topped 53 rushing yards in six of his nine games this season, including a 120-yard performance against the Jets last week.
While the Buccaneers run defense is stout, the Saints will need to rely upon Kamara. Plus, he put up 61 yards on 19 carries against the Bucs in Week 8. If Kamara gets 19 carries again this week, he’ll surpass 54 yards easily.
Taysom Hill: Over 8.5 Total Rushing Attempts (-150) at Caesars
Taysom Hill is a lot of things, but one thing he is not is shy about running the ball. He’s started the last two games for the Saints and he’s carried the ball 11 times in each of those games.
Those aren’t just tuck-it-and-run plays either. The Saints design runs for Hill at least a few times a game, and will likely need to get creative and do so again versus a solid Buccaneers defense this week.
Rob Gronkowski: Over 52.5 Total Receiving Yards (-115) at Caesars
Rob Gronkowski is back. After dealing with injuries during the middle part of the season, Gronk has come back with a vengeance and has again become a big part of the Bucs offense.
He’s seen 34 targets over his past four games since returning from injury, and has topped 53 receiving yards in each of those games. While the Saints are a tough defense, Gronk’s recent target share should be enough to get him over the hump here.
