Bucs A Trending Vegas Pick

August 12th, 2019

As one could imagine, the Las Vegas Review-Journal writes a lot about sports wagering.

In their gambling look at all 32 NFL teams, the Bucs were up on Saturday and it seems Tampa Bay is moving the needle a bit in on the strip.

Westgate sports book manager Ed Salmons says he likes the Bucs chances — and their fruitful odds — to win the NFC South.

The big cheese at the CG Technology sportsbook says to look for lines moving on the Bucs. Too much action on the win total wager — on the over.

“We’ve had a couple pretty sharp guys betting the Bucs over and to win the division,” CG Technology sportsbook director Tony DiTommaso said. “We’re at 6 (Over -180). We’re probably going to have to go to 6½ flat (-110).”

Joe’s not ready to drop money on the Bucs in either direction. Not yet.

However, if Jameis Winston stays healthy all season, it would one heck of a disappointing season to see the Bucs finish with just six wins.

    let me help you joe… you were close but the kinder gentler tmax needs to edit

    However, if Jameis Winston does not get KILLED by week 4 because once again the bucs organization is trotting out minor league backups impersonating starters to protect the most valuable player in franchise history………

  2. The Buc Realist Says:

    Take the over, only if the Bucs get to play the steelers backups each week!!!!!!!!!!!

    2019 will reveal answers to the sheep, that the “real” fans already know!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    go bucs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. T REX Says:

    Not buying yet. Only 5 Steeler starters played. No wonder JW looked so good.

    Need to see it vs a real NFL team.

  4. JimmyJack Says:

    I didn’t get in early so I missed the 6. I’ll still take over on 6.5.

    That’s pretty sweet that the line is moving up on the Bucs despite JPP going down and the LVD getting banged up and now Vea. What does that tell ya?

  5. geno711 Says:

    Thank god we did not draft Darrell Henderson like Kobe and Ghost of Darrell Henderson wanted.

    Darrell Henderson 7 touches for 8 total yards this week for the Rams. Look at his highlights at Memphis. He always uses his left arm when carrying the ball.

    He is having that problem with the Rams and they are shocked. One of the 1st thing you teach a running back. Henderson feels like a guy that that Buc’s would normally draft and then we would hear in training camp that he lacks fundamentals.

    Do you think Bill Belichick would ever draft Henderson or Greedy Williams? The answer is no.

  6. JimmyJack Says:

    But as much as I believe the Bucs go 11-5 this year I will not touch a line the goes up to 7. That’s just bad gambling. As much faith as you could ever have that we hit a over of 7 you are giving the makers a full game advantage. The half game bothers me enough…….any more then that and you are just playing with stupid money. Anything can happen in sports. Don’t ever play at a disadvantage. Pick another bet.

    But if you one of them freaks wanting to bet the Bucs under it looks like you may be happy to wait it out.

  7. JimmyJack Says:

    But Geno what if Henderson breaks one off for 35 next game? Then what?

    I think a entire year of service is a reasonable sample size to wait before passing judgement. After 7 total carries seems a bit kneejerk, no?

  8. Mitch Says:

    Is Tampa signing Marcus Gilchrist?

  9. LordCornelius Says:

    Should be a great opportunity for Realist to make a ton of dough. Put your $$ where your math is bro and bet everything you can on the Bucs losing at least 10-11 games. If you are so confident then why avoid such an obvious and easy way to make some money?

    GO BUCS!

  10. Kobe Faker Says:

    “Im betting my 3 months ssi disability checks and 2 months of food stamps on the Bucs under 6 games

    *Kobe Faker wanted duel threat rb david montgomery”

    Kobe wise guy Faker

    I trust Arians and Jameis … I don’t trust the run game or the defense or the special teams until I see them prove themselves in a couple regular season games … if the defense and run game are in the top 15 or so I think 10 wins is almost a given … if they are in the bottom 10% of the league, 6 wins might be tough to come by again. It’s all about the T-E-A-M as a whole.

  12. BetterBucFan Says:

    Not sure about this new offense yet.

    Look at every other starting QB drive, they all went 6-7 for 80 yards or some statline like that.

  13. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    @ Mitch

    Bucs have Gilchrist in for a workout…..it’s possible…..he has veteran experience and won’t be too expensive.

  14. Snook Says:

    The only question mark on this team is Jameis. If he can limit turnovers and actually score some points in the first quarter of games, the Bucs can win some games.

    If not, 5-6 wins is what we’ll get. Again.

  15. Buc1987 Says:

    Take the over.


  16. Morgus the Magnificent Says:

    How on EARTH can anyone “trust” Jameis?? The track record indisputably says you cannot.

  17. Dapostman Says:

    I got 35-1 for a hundy to win the NFC.

  18. July Joe Says:

    @BetterBucFan … Mariota stunk in his preseason game, as did some other QBs … you’re right that some guys lit it up like Jameis, Mayfield, Darnold, etc., but not everyone did.

    @Snook … nonsense. Jameis is one guy you don’t need to worry about. The run game and defense are the only real concerns, especially if Gay is the real deal and the special teams problem is solved.

    @Morgus … his track record includes being the youngest Pro Bowl QB ever, ONLY QB to start his career with back to back 4,000 yard passing seasons, leading the entire NFL in 300 yard games while only playing 11 full games in 2017, finishing top 5 in Raw QBR as well as #1 under pressure and on 3rd downs in 2018 … Arians came out of retirement specifically because he trusts and believes in JW … you are clueless.

  19. BucEmUp Says:

    Joe, I tried going on the westgate resort and casino page to put some money of the superbowl futures for Bucs and couldnt do it. Other places to bet but they are the only.one with 100:1 odds, but seems like one has to be a guest in order to place the bet is this true? Ive never even bet on a game before so I have no idea what I am doing but REALLY like those odds

    I am sure Henderson will have good carries. I just like to have other subjects than Jameis arguments on this site. There has been a heck of a lot of talk (from fans) that the Buc’s should’ve taken this guy or that. Henderson has been one of them and just wanted to point out they all don’t work out. I agree there is a long way to. Remember Ghost wants to write off SMB before he plays any regular season games.

    To what we want to wait on sample size, I can go with your 1 full season. If that is the standard you and I want to use when discussing quality of a player on this site than fine. I just don’t think that is typically done here.

  21. BucsFan727 Says:

    Tmax you ant fooling now one. Talking your going to be disappointed. Who you trying to fool. The REAL fans dont care what you have to say. I skip over your posts but you where the first one this time. You got me. And I fill dumber for reading it. I dont read Turbo Maxi Pad. Or Realwhipe. Mega dude is another. Sad excuse for a human being. Why do I say that? If this is your favorite..Highly doubt it.. Team. You are so F up from it Its not healthy. No sir. I would stop watching all to gether. In fact thats what I did for 5 yrs. Maybe you guys should take a break. Its like being in a bad relationship. Its just hard to stop but you keep coming back for more. If where going to be bad then lets see your under bet.

  22. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Marcus Gilchrist is too old and too short. And he doesn’t produce much.

  23. Pittsshore Says:

    4-13. San Francisco is a must win. Next 5 of 6 games are away games.

  24. D-Rome Says:

    6-10 and I have money on the under.

  25. AwShbucs Says:

    I just wonder if Tmax will ever actually realise he has no skill for evaluating talent.

  26. LordCornelius Says:

    At least Kobe putting his money where his mouth is even though I’m pretty sure you can’t bet food stamps in Vegas but I may be wrong lol.


  27. Buccfan37 Says:

    I’d put some money on the Bucs winning 7 games if the state of Florida gave me the opportunity. Instead we get the millions to one longshot lottery. Boring shutting out sports betting fans.

  28. BucEmUp Says:

    Damn I gotta go to Vegas in person just to plaxe a bet with westgate? Thats blows. Plenty of other options but not will those odds. This is the year to bet on this team because next year everyine will know they are legit and hopefully superbowl champs..No way in hell.I would consider it without Arians, bowles and staff..I.will be putting my money where my.mouth is!!

  29. Old School Athlete Says:

    Some of you guys are insufferable with your doom and gloom. We lose a preseason game on the road by two points and it’s all “woe is us” and “same ol Bucs”. This is the best assemblage of talent we have had in recent memory and finally competent coaching, a kicker, and accountability. I would love to think we’re a SB team, but that’s probably a bit optimistic. I do expect better than 5-11. It’s terribly unfair to say “same ol Bucs.”
