2018 NFL Season: Tampa Bay Buccaneers Betting Recap

Photo of the pickswise logo

To say the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had a bad season might be an understatement. They finished with a 5-11 record and even though they started the season strong, it quickly fell off. The season was so bad that it cost Dirk Koetter his job. Even when a team struggles, they can still create some value for people placing bets on games. Was that the case in this one? Or did they struggle on the field and also in Vegas? Let’s dive into the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Betting Recap

Tampa Bay Buccaneers against the spread

If you bet the Tampa Bay Buccaneers every game this season you probably broke even or might have won or lost just a little bit of money depending on what odds you got the game at. On the season the Buccaneers were 8-7-1 against the spread. At home, the Buccaneers were 4-4 against the spread while on the road they were 4-3-1.

On grass, the Buccaneers struggled against the spread going 4-7. On turf is where they had a ton of success going 4-0-1. A look at these stats show just what many felt about the team this year, they were a really hard team to figure out and the best bet was to just stay away from them.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Over Under

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers made you a bit of money if you were on the over this year with them. On the season the over was the play nine times, while the under was the play seven times. On the road the over was the play six times while the under was the play two times. At home the over was the play three times, while the under was the play five times.

On grass the over was the play six times while the under was the play five times. On turf the over was the play three times while the under was the play two times.

This was a good offensive team so it was a lot of high totals that needed to be covered. The average total points scored in a game was 53.8.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers futures 

Not many people seem to have a lot of faith that next year is going to be much better for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The current odds for the Buccaneers to win the Super Bowl is 60/1 which is in the bottom third of the NFL. The odds for the NFC aren’t much better coming in at 35/1 to reach the Super Bowl which is worth worse in the league.

The only teams that have worse odds are the Washington Redskins, Arizona Cardinals, and the Detroit Lions. It’s going to be the first year with Bruce Arians in charge and I think that is going to really help the play of Jameis Winston.

I don’t think it’s going to be enough though, and I think this is still one of the worst teams in the NFC. Look for the Buccaneers to finish in last place in the NFC South again. This is a team that I would stay away from in betting Futures.
