The Tampa Bay Buccaneers extended their playoff streak to four consecutive seasons last year, achieving this feat without Tom Brady. Instead, it was Baker Mayfield, who finished third in Comeback Player of the Year voting, leading the team to the Division Round, where they were ultimately defeated by the Detroit Lions. Playing in a weak NFC South, the Bucs managed a 9-8 overall record and secured the necessary tiebreakers to make the playoffs. In doing so, Tampa Bay defied the NFL odds, surpassing the oddsmakers' expectations 11 times during the regular season. The only NFC team with a better against-the-spread record was the same Lions team (12-5 ATS) that ended their season.

Benefiting from playing in one of the league's weakest divisions and facing a schedule where only six of 14 opponents qualified for the playoffs, the Bucs capitalized on these factors to secure a playoff bid. However, improvements were still needed in the offseason. GM Jason Licht addressed these by parting with veterans Shaq Barrett, Devin White, and Carlton Davis while re-signing key players such as Mayfield, Mike Evans, Lavonte David, and Antoine Winfield Jr. Entering the offseason, the Bucs had significant needs along the offensive line and in the secondary. These gaps were filled through the draft, trades, and free agency, positioning Tampa Bay as a contender in the NFC South title race. Their odds of returning to the postseason for a fifth consecutive time stand at +138. With a middle-of-the-road schedule strength, the Buccaneers are poised to be in the running as the regular season concludes.

The Buccaneers' offense was heavily reliant on the passing game last season due to their inability to establish a strong ground attack. They ranked last in the NFL for rushing yards per game, averaging fewer than 90 yards and a paltry 3.6 yards per carry. Despite this and having little to no time to make a move before first contact, Rachaad White delivered for his NFL player prop supporters, amassing a career-best 1,539 scrimmage yards. White managed to rush for 990 yards and 6 touchdowns, and added another 549 yards and 3 touchdowns receiving, making him one of the better fantasy running backs of the 2023-24 NFL betting season. To address their struggling run game, the Bucs drafted Duke C Graham Barton with the No. 26 pick, hoping his presence will bolster their offensive line alongside standout tackles Tristan Wirfs and Luke Goedeke. Should it come to fruition, Tampa will sport a more balanced offensive attack that could see it make some waves in a division devoid of any defensive dominators.

The Bucs' receiving corps, though longer in the tooth than many others, remains strong with Mike Evans leading a group that includes Chris Godwin, Trey Palmer, and new addition Sterling Shepard. Washington WR Jalen McMillan, acquired with the No. 29 pick in the third round, brings much-needed youth to the unit. Last season, Tampa Bay's passing attack ranked No. 17 in the league, averaging 224.2 yards per game and 10.8 yards per completion (No. 8). Tight end Cade Otton also contributed significantly, turning 47 receptions into 455 yards and 4 touchdowns. Should Tampa Bay improve their interior offensive line play, the passing game is expected to make further strides in the 2024-25 season, assuming injuries are kept at bay. The front office has enhanced the roster's depth, which should help mitigate potential setbacks should the injury bug rear its ugly head.

On paper however, the Buccaneers still don’t come off as a team that will challenge to hoist the Lombardi Trophy come the conclusion of Super Bowl LIX. It’s odds of doing so currently clock in at +8006 at the online sportsbook, and it’s predicted to finish second in the division standings behind the Falcons (-135) going by the current odds to win the NFC South. With “The GOAT” no longer spearheading the offense’s charge, Linemakers mistakenly lined the Bucs win total at six games a season ago. Tampa crushed that impost, and because of it, now finds their number to beat swelled up to 7.5 with heavy -156 juice attached to the high side of the target. NFL futures bettors certainly seem bullish on the team’s outlook in 2024-25. This optimism is supported by their relatively easy schedule, deemed the eleventh toughest by Sharp Football Analysis, featuring matchups against the NFC East, AFC West, Detroit Lions, Baltimore Ravens, and San Francisco 49ers.

Founded in 1976 as an expansion team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost their first 26 games, setting a precedent for much of their early history. While the Buccaneers boast two Super Bowl championships, their legacy has largely been marked by losing seasons and ineptitude. From 1976 to 1996, the Bucs only made the NFL Playoffs three times.

A turning point came in 1997 when head coach Tony Dungy began leading the team to sustained success, taking them to the postseason in four of his final five seasons. However, Dungy couldn't secure a Super Bowl appearance and was replaced by Jon Gruden in 2002.

Gruden immediately led the Buccaneers to a Super Bowl victory in his first season, though some claimed he won with Dungy's team. Dungy later won a Super Bowl with the Indianapolis Colts in 2006. Despite his initial success, Gruden's "Chucky" persona and cocky attitude couldn't sustain playoff momentum, as the Bucs missed the playoffs in the two years following their Super Bowl win. Gruden was eventually fired after producing only two playoff teams in his final six seasons.

From 2008 to 2019, the Buccaneers failed to make the playoffs. However, everything changed with the arrival of Tom Brady in 2020. In his first season away from Bill Belichick and the Patriots, Brady led the Buccaneers to a Super Bowl championship in a dominant upset over the Kansas City Chiefs. Though the future Hall of Fame quarterback hung up his cleats in 2023, the Bucs still managed to punch a ticket to the second season under the guidance of Baker Mayfield who was recently through 2026.
