The 2021 NFC Championship Game will kick off Championship Sunday as the Green Bay Packers host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Lambeau Field for a 3:05 p.m. ET kickoff. And while a lot of the attention will justifiably be cast upon Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers, there are dozens of intriguing Packers vs. Buccaneers player props available from William Hill Sportsbook. The over-under for Davante Adams' total receiving yards is at 87.5 in the latest 2021 NFC Championship Game prop odds and Mike Evans' is set at 66.5.
The Buccaneers dominated the Packers 38-10 back in Week 6 and Adams managed just 61 yards while Evans recorded just one catch for 10 yards. Can either superstar receiver clear their total or should you be fading them given their Week 6 performances? Before locking in any NFL prop bets for Sunday's 2021 NFC Championship Game, you need to see the Buccaneers vs. Packers prop predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

Top NFL player prop bets for 2021 NFC Championship Game
The model says Rodgers goes under 36.5 passing attempts (-115), predicting that he throws the ball just 34 times on average. Rodgers is the frontrunner for NFL MVP honors after throwing or 48 touchdowns with just five interceptions while leading the NFL in completion percentage (70.7).
However, his 526 total pass attempts were the least he's thrown in a full season since 2014. Rodgers has attempted 36 passes or fewer in each effort during Green Bay's current seven-game winning streak and has only attempted 37 passes or more on three occasions this season. Even with the Packers trailing throughout a 38-10 loss to the Buccaneers in Week 6, Rodgers only threw the ball 35 times.
The model also says Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski goes over 28.5 receiving yards (-110) against the Packers. Gronkowski came out of retirement to join Brady in Tampa Bay and while he wasn't quite been the dominant force he was in New England, the duo's connection was still apparent as Gronkowski caught 45 passes for 623 yards and seven touchdowns during the regular season.
That included five catches for 78 yards and a touchdown in the Week 6 win over Green Bay. And even though he saw his targets diminish late in the season, the injury to Antonio Brown (knee) will likely create additional opportunities for the five-time Pro Bowler on Sunday. The model predicts 35 receiving yards on average for Gronkowski, which creates solid value on the over (28.5).
