Buccaneers Football Betting Report / 2017 NFL Tampa Bay Buccaneers Odds
The time is now for Jameis Winston. Tampa Bay went out and made enough moves in the offseason to lay the onus completely on the former No. 1 pick. Few quarterbacks have the weapons that he will have at his disposal this season. From Mike Evans and Doug Martin to free agent signee DeSean Jackson and first-round draft pick O.J. Howard, the Buccaneers have assembled an attack that is terrifying on paper. Now it’s on Winston to put it all together and lead this team to the postseason.
Defensively this team has some talent, but has yet to come together as a unit under Dirk Koetter. The combination of Lavonte David and Kwon Alexander is a great duo to have in a faster league where linebackers are forced to cover more ground and Vernon Hargreaves III is developing into a top cover corner. The key to the defense remains Gerald McCoy though and without him clogging the middle, this defense is a sieve.
This schedule breaks out well for the Buccaneers. Tampa Bay is in a division with a lot of talented offenses, but will only be tested by New England and Green Bay in cross-divisional games against the AFC East and NFC North.

2017 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Season Preview
Much of the Buccaneers’ fate will be on the right arm of Winston. He threw for 4,090 yards with 28 touchdowns and 18 interceptions a season ago and figures to improve on those numbers as he gets another season of experience under his belt.
Winston still has his main target in Mike Evans and the team made a big signing with the addition of speedster DeSean Jackson, who will take the top off defenses. Doug Martin had a bumpy year in 2016 but if he can return to form he should be a solid running back. The Bucs drafted star tight end O.J. Howard in the first round and he should be a nice addition both as a run blocker and receiver.
The defense was in the middle of the pack a season ago, giving up 23.2 points per game. The team has some standouts, led by Gerald McCoy, but it doesn’t seem likely to be dominant. However, if the offense can improve and the defense can play similarly to last year, this is a team that can get to 10 wins.
While everything has been trending up for Tampa Bay the past three seasons, it’s not an automatic that the playoffs will happen. Six games within the division against the Falcons, Saints and Panthers is tough, as are non-divisional games with the Patriots, Packers, Cardinals and Vikings.
Tampa Bay will only take the next step forward if Winston elevates his game to another level.
