Who Will Score the Most Fantasy Points in the Season Odds

  • Tom Brady To Score Most Fantasy Points +950
  • Dak Prescott To Score Most Fantasy Points +950

Both quarterbacks involved in this game are expected to be major fantasy football producers, and both of them are in contention – but not in the top tier of candidates – to lead the league in non-PPR fantasy points.

Bucs + Cowboys Super Bowl Odds

  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers to Win SB 57 +750
  • Dallas Cowboys To Win SB 57 +2000

This game illustrates how thin the margins are between good teams at the top of the NFL.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the second-favorite to win the Super Bowl, with +750 odds, and have the shortest Super Bowl odds in the entire NFC.

The Dallas Cowboys are much further down on that list – eight spots below the Bucs – but because of the unpredictability of football and home-field advantage, only 1.5 point underdogs on the spread.

If the Cowboys win this game, it could change a lot of perceptions about both of these teams, and it would surely reverberate through NFL futures sports betting odds markets.
