With the NFL season right around the corner (crossing fingers, toes, and nose), I am going to kick off a series where I breakdown each division in the NFL. Recap the key additions, subtractions from the offseason and tell you what you should bet on the Over/Under for each team.
Today I am going to continue my series within the NFC South and tackle the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Key Additions: Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski, Ke’Shawn Vaughn, Tristan Wirfs, Antonie Winfield Jr
Key Subtractions: Jameis Winston, Peyton Barber, Carl Nassib
Last years record: 7-9
Strength of Schedule: .502 (T-16)
Vegas Over/Under Win Total: 9.5
No team this offseason mad a bigger splash than the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Last season was a tough one for Bruce Arians as they weren’t as bad as they were on paper. They played in a lot of close games and some of which they lost due to Jameis Winston. They knew if they were going to make the playoffs, they had to upgrade the QB position, and they went out and signed Tom Brady.
While Tom wasn’t as good as years past last year, the Patriots suffered from a lack of weapons. Fast Forward to this year, Godwin, Evans, Howard, Gronk, and Vaughn, the Bucs are locked and loaded to make a splash.
The defense will play a ket in how far this team will go in 2020. If they play like they did last year, we could be in for an ugly season in Tampa. But I see this team stepping up to the plate and making some serious noise not just in the South but in the entire NFC.
Bucs Over/Under 9.5 – Over, Easily
2020 Record: 11-5
The 9.5 mark is scary to think about even with their schedule. They finish the season with the Vikings, Lions and the Falcons twice. Those four games will determine if they win the division and playoff seeding for them.
