Tampa Bay Buccaneers Betting

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were an extremely fun team to watch and wager upon at online sportsbooks in 2019. Bruce Arians and his staff most definitely made a solid impression in the first season of their regime with improvement made on both sides of the ball. A year removed from marching a laughable defense onto the field under the prior coaching staff, the Bucs led the league in rush defense. Though Jameis Winston ended up throwing 30 touchdowns, he averaged it out by throwing a league-high 33 touchdown passes. It all resulted in Tampa Bay winning seven games to surpass its 6.5-game season win total odds. Though a poor 5-9-2 ATS record was tallied, total bettors – especially those that enjoy betting on high scorers – loved the end results with the over cashing in 12 of the 16 games played. The needle looks to be pointed up for this franchise heading into 2020 and beyond!

Season Recap

Week 1 was a microcosm of what could have been for the Buccaneers in 2019. Had they withstood a late charge by the 49ers, the team would’ve picked up a crucial win. Had they not allowed the New York Giants to battle back in the second half of Daniel Jones’s NFL debut, the team would’ve picked up a crucial win. Had they not allowed the Tennessee Titans to log the game’s final 10 points in Week 8, the team would’ve picked up a crucial win. See a trend here? Had those three games been won, the Buccaneers would’ve found themselves in the thick of the NFC playoff chase and not just playing out the string the final month of the season.

The offense was electric with Arians and OC Byron Leftwich calling the shots. Winston easily surpassed the 5,000+ passing yard plateau for the first time in his career and finished second to Lamar Jackson for most touchdowns thrown. He was the ringleader of the league’s No. 1 passing offense that averaged nearly 303 yards per game and 7.7 yards per pass attempt (No. 5). Though Mike Evans (1,157 yards) and Chris Godwin (1,333 yards) each went down with season-ending hamstring injuries late in the year, this passing attack looks to be locked and loaded for years to come.

Heck, even Breshad Perriman was able to step right in and make an impact in their absence!

While the ground game left much to be desired ranking No. 24 overall while averaging a pedestrian 3.7 yards per carry (No. 28), Ronald Jones III showed flashes in his sophomore campaign with 724 rushing yards and 6 TD. Peyton Barber also proved to be a solid compliment with 470 yards and 6 TD.

One glaring issue the team did however have was its inability to win games in the comforts of Raymond James Stadium. While the 5-3 SU and ATS records on the road were fantastic, Tampa Bay did itself a major disservice by logging just a pair of wins in front of the hometown faithful while killing those that supported them in those matchups in going 0-6-2 ATS. How is that even possible?!

2020 Season Preview

Upper management will have numerous chores ahead of them this upcoming offseason. First and foremost, they must look to find ways to shore up a secondary that was nothing short of a dumpster fire over the course of the regular season. However, the strength of the stop unit could be jeopardized if it doesn’t pony up and pay the main contributors from a season ago. Ndamukong Suh, Shaquil Barrett, Jason Pierre-Paul logged 30.5 of the 38 total sacks the defense registered for the season. All three are unrestricted free agents entering 2020-21. Barrett should be the primary target after leading the league with 19.5 sacks.

In amassing just two wins in NFC South play and getting swept by the New Orleans Saints both SU and ATS, there’s still much work to be done for the Bucs to become a force within the division. That said, they might not be as far off as many suggest. With the No. 14 pick in this year’s draft, the franchise would be wise to look to snag some offensive line help after the unit had all sorts of issues opening up holes for the ground game and allowed Winston to get thrown to the turf 41 times. Speaking of No. 3, Tampa Bay needs to make a decision on whether the former No. 1 draft pick and Heisman Trophy winner is their quarterback of the future. With an explosive pass catching corps currently assembled and the fact that he’s now the only member of the dubious 30/30 club, it would be quite the shock if he wasn’t inked to another deal in the offseason.
