The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Kansas City Chiefs clash in Super Bowl 55 Sunday evening at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla. Bucs TE Rob Gronkowski, who came out of retirement to reunite with QB Tom Brady in Tampa, will look to put the feather in the cap of an excellent comeback season.

Rob Gronkowski Super Bowl prop bets
Odds via BetMGM; access USA TODAY Sports’ betting odds for a full list. Lines last updated Wednesday at 6:15 p.m. ET.
Bucs’ first touchdown scorer: +900
Gronkowski is priced at +1800 to score the first touchdown of Super Bowl 55 and +225 for an anytime touchdown, but I like the sweet spot of the value with the Bucs’ first 6-point score.
Best Super Bowl Odds 2020
The future Hall of Famer has three career touchdown catches in the Super Bowl, all from Brady during their dynastic run with the New England Patriots. Gronk also shared the Bucs’ team lead with 21 red-zone targets this season. Should the Patriots get into the red zone Sunday evening, expect Brady to look for his biggest, most-trustworthy option with most of his other targets playing in their first Super Bowl.

Receiving yards: OVER 29.5 (-105)
Sometimes you have to trust the line set by the books, but that’s not the case here. Gronkowski caught 6 of 7 targets for 106 yards in the Week 12 meeting with the Chiefs at Raymond James Stadium. Sure, the Chiefs defense will be tightened up in the Big Game, but Gronk is a big-game player and has the full trust of his legendary quarterback.
It’ll likely take a few catches for him to get to 30 yards Sunday, but that’ll suit the Bucs just fine.

Receptions made: OVER 2.5 (-105)
Gronkowski has just 2 catches on 7 targets through three playoff games thus far. The Bucs will look to move slowly down the field in order to keep the Chiefs offense off the field in Super Bowl LV, so look for Brady to target Gronk in the center of the field more often to keep the clock running.

First reception: UNDER 9.5 yards (-110)
This follows suit of the above pick as Gronkowski should be used to pick up first downs and control the pace of play. His one catch against the Packers in the NFC Championship went for 29 yards, but he had just 10 catches of 20-plus yards in the regular season.
Best Odds On Winning The Super Bowl
He, and all Bucs pass-catchers, will likely be asked to play conservatively in the center of the field rather than risk going out of bounds and stopping the clock on sideline runs.
