Tampa Bay Buccaneers NFL Betting

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers ended up defending their NFC South championship in the 2022-23 NFL betting season, but did so with a losing 8-9 SU record. Even before the season began, a dark cloud hung over the franchise due to none other than Mr. Tom Brady. Out of nowhere, “The GOAT” decided to hang them up only to come out weeks later and state he would in fact return for a third go-round as the Bucs QB1. Whether it was a lack of practice or injuries mucking things up, the Buccaneers didn’t look to be their ordinary selves right from the outset. Highly indicative of that statement was the fact that it was forced to fight tooth and nail with every division rival just to take home bragging rights. The NFC South futures odds weren’t decided at the online sportsbook until week 17! Punching a ticket to the postseason didn’t end the way the franchise had hoped either after getting rolled up and smoked by the Dallas Cowboys in the wild-card round. Much is to be determined for this franchise throughout the offseason from the quarterback to the head coach to other personnel.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2022 Season Recap

Things started pretty decently for the Buccaneers. They scored a 19-3 season opening win against the Cowboys in Big D and followed it up with what proved to be a crucial win over a New Orleans Saints team that had their number to get out to a 2-0 start. Things cratered from there however with losses incurred in five of the next six games. During that losing stretch, the team only managed to put an average of 17.8 points per game on the board. It then posted back-to-back wins over the Los Angeles Rams – in true comeback fashion – and against the Seahawks across the pond to insert a much-needed jolt of confidence back into the roster. Even so, it managed to win both games even though it only scored an average of 18.5 points per game.

The inability to consistently put points on the board was no longer a trend but instead a new-look for this Tom Brady-led offense. While Chris Godwin had a nice bounceback campaign coming off a major knee injury, Brady and Mike Evans were never able to get on the same page with one another. The team amassed a 3-4 SU record to close out the season and logged a grand total of one point spread cover during that stretch. When it was said and done, Tampa Bay proved to be the league’s biggest money burner after covering the closing NFL betting line at a sickening 4-12-1 clip. The offense was 100 percent to blame. While the passing attack still ranked out amongst the best the league had to offer in averaging just short of 270 yards per game (No. 2), the Buccaneers were simply just allergic to turning that yardage into points evidenced by its 18.8 yard per point average (No. 31) and scoring just 1.5 touchdowns per game in the red zone (No. 21). Last season, only the Chargers and Bills scored more tuddies in the red zone!

Much of that had to do with the offense simply being unable to run the ball. As bad Leonard Fournette proved to be, the coaching staff continued to call his number and No. 7 failed to deliver a high majority of the time. Rookie Rachaad White got a bit more burn the second half of the year but only averaged 3.7 yards per carry and scored a grand total of one rushing touchdown. The offensive line was largely to blame with injuries and poor execution preventing it from excelling much like it had the prior two seasons. Not known for making it a point to win the time of possession battle due to a quick strike offensive attack, only the Patriots, Vikings, Jets, Texans, Seahawks, and Panthers possessed the pigskin a lesser amount than the Bucs. While the aging defense was above average in numerous stat categories and owned a top-10 pass D, it being forced to play a bulk of every game did the team no favors. Just look at what went down in the 31-14 defeat to Dallas with the Cowboys owning a near 10 minute advantage in the time of possession battle.

2023 Offseason

After needing 17 weeks to win the worst division in professional football, it’s pretty safe to say the window of opportunity for the franchise to win another Super Bowl has been slammed shut. The roster is aged and overpaid. Moves must be made in the offseason to start over and dramatically improve one of if not the worst salary cap situation in the NFL. The team sports a laundry list of free agents heading into 2023-24, and only owns three picks in the first 150 of the upcoming NFL Draft. If Tom Brady is to return for a 24th season, it’s more than likely not going to be with the Buccaneers. With major needs at the QB, EDGE, CB, G, and RB positions, it’s tough to gauge where the team looks first with a plethora of problem areas needing to be addressed.

Founded in 1976 as an expansion team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost the first 26 games of their existence. It was a portent of things to come for most of their history.

It is true that the Buccaneers have two Super Bowl championships. But it is also a fact that most of the Bucs' history has been one of losing and ineptitude. From 1976 through 1996, the Bucs made the NFL Playoffs only three times.

Finally, in 1997, the Bucs began a sustained period of success. Head coach Tony Dungy led Tampa Bay to the postseason in four of his final five seasons. But Dungy could not get the Bucs to the Super Bowl. Fairly or not, Dungy was fired and replaced by Jon Gruden in 2002.

Gruden led the Buccaneers to the Super Bowl championship in his first season on the job. Many Dungy supporters bitterly said that Gruden won with Dungy’s team. Subsequently, Dungy moved on to the Indianapolis Colts and won a Super Bowl in 2006.

Certainly, Gruden had his share of fans with his “Chucky” demeanor and cocky attitude. But Gruden’s Bucs did not gain the playoffs in the two years after winning the Super Bowl. Gruden produced just two playoff teams in his final six seasons before getting fired.

From 2008 through 2019, the Bucs failed to make the playoffs. All of that changed when Tom Brady arrived for the 2020 campaign. In his first season away from Bill Belichick and the Patriots, Brady led the Bucs to the Super Bowl championship in a dominant upset of the Kansas City Chiefs.
