Year in and year out, no matter what the roster looks like, no matter the coaching staff, no matter what additions or subtractions have been made, fans of every team are optimistic that this will be the year their team makes the playoffs, this will be the year that they win the Super Bowl, and every year, without fail, a majority of fans are left disappointed with the result.
When your team is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, that result is almost always one that leaves you disappointed. If you’re a fan of the Buccaneers, this year seems a little different. Perhaps it’s the addition of free-agent signings such as Ndamukong Suh, Shaq Barrett, and Deone Bucannon or perhaps it’s the new coaching staff led by future NFL Hall of Fame coach Bruce Arians, or perhaps just maybe, it’s simply because the odds have to smile upon us at least once in a while.
Unfortunately, if you’re a betting man, Las Vegas isn’t putting the odds in our favor, at least not this season. According to BetOnline.ag, the Buccaneers are not only the underdog when it comes to winning the Super Bowl, but also when it comes to winning both the NFC and the NFC South. This isn’t anything new for the Buccaneers, as we’re used to being the underdog, but there’s no doubt in our minds, that this is the year that we at least prove the bookmakers wrong if nothing else.
The Buccaneers do have better post-season odds than the Redskins, Bengals, Cardinals, and the Dolphins, but bragging rights of being the best among the worst isn’t exactly what any team should be willing to settle for, and it’s certainly not something we’re willing to accept. With a revamped defense, a brand new coaching staff which have proven in the past they know how to win, a new kicker that aims to prove he’s as clutch as they come, and the additions of not only the free-agents but also the new draft class, the Bucs are determined to prove they’re the team to bet on.
According to betonline.com, the Buccaneers have been given 125/1 odds to win the Super Bowl, 60/1 odds to win the NFC Championship, and are last at 10/1 odds to win the NFC South. While there are other bookmakers throughout both Las Vegas, and Atlantic City, none of them have given the Bucs any chance of winning, which may just prove to provide your means to pay for season tickets next year if the odds wind up in your favor.
