Tampa Bay Buccaneers NFL Betting

Last week the excitement was over the top for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers season opener at the New Orleans Saints as Tom Brady made his debut for this godforsaken franchise. However, Brady got a stark dose of the reality of being a member of the Buccaneers in a dreadful defeat that was even worse than the 34-23 score read. Tampa Bay burned countless squares that plunked down their cash on the media hype machine. While sharps laughed their way to the bank on an easy New Orleans win. Tampa Bay will now open their home season against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. Once again, the public is coming back for more on the Buccaneers. The question is if Carolina has enough to stay within the big number.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Week 2 Matchup

Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Florida will host Tom Brady’s home debut as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers face the visiting Carolina Panthers on Sunday, September 20. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET with television coverage on FOX. This is Carolina’s road opener.

Last week Matt Rhule made his Carolina coaching debut at home as a three-point home dog to the Las Vegas Raiders. Carolina lost a heartbreaker 34-30 in which they failed to hold a late lead. Rhule got a “welcome to the NFL” moment on a botched play call that went to the fullback instead of Christian McCaffrey that likely cost the Panthers a touchdown and win.

Why Rhule did not put the game into the hands of his $64 million running back boggles the mind. New starting quarterback Teddy Bridgewater threw for 22 of 34 and 270 yards with one touchdown. Bridgewater had an impressive 98.0 quarterback rating. McCaffrey ran for 96 yards on 23 carries with two touchdowns. Robby Anderson also impressed with six catches good for 115 yards and a TD. Carolina actually outgained the Raiders 388-372.

In September road games the Panthers are 6-4 against the spread with six of those ten games going over the total. As a road dog Carolina is 7-12 against the spread with six of their last nine in the role going over the total. On the road against NFC South rivals the Panthers are 6-5 versus the odds with six of their last seven in that situation going over the total.

In September home games the Buccaneers have gushed red ink with just two covers in 10 games. Tampa Bay has gone over the total in five of their last seven September home games.

As a home chalk the Buccaneers have been terrible as well with just four payouts in their last 20 games in that role. Five of their last nine games as home favorites went over the total. In NFC South Division rivalry games, the Bucs are 7-11 versus the odds with five of their last seven in that way going over the total.

At Tampa Bay the Panthers are 6-1 against the spread with four of their last six at the Bucs going under the total. Overall, in this head to head series the Panthers are 9-5 against the spread with the Buccaneers. Six of the last eight between these teams have gone under the total.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Week 1 Recap

Tampa Bay was a four-point dog at New Orleans in a 34-23 loss with the game soaring over the total of 48.5. Things started off well as Brady scored the first touchdown with a two-yard run. That proved to the highlight of the day as the Saints scored the next 24 points to take full control of the game. Brady was limited to 23 of 36 for 239 yards, two touchdowns, two interceptions, and a 78.4 quarterback rating. Brady was sacked three times and the Bucs were only 5-13 on third downs. Head coach Bruce Arians was not happy and said so after the game.
