Oddsmakers Betting On Jameis

November 16th, 2019

Guys who get paid big money to scrutinize the NFL and run highly intricate spreadsheets have made a very interesting call on the Buccaneers’ starting quarterback, a man with no contract for 2020.

If you sniff around the legal sportsbooks, you’ll often find America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, as the current favorite to lead the NFL in passing yards this season.

(Yes, you can bet on that kind of stuff.)

On the Draft Kings online sports book (not legal to wager in Florida), Jameis is the +225 favorite to lead the league in passing. Dak Prescott is next at +275, followed by Patrick Mahomes at +400 and Jared Goff at +800.

Currently, Jameis ranks third in passing yards behind Philip Rivers and Prescott.

There are a few key factors at play, Joe believes. First, the oddsmakers obviously see shaky pass defenses in Jameis’ 2019 future (Atlanta twice and the Lions, among others), and they see how the Bucs’ run game is fading with Ronald Jones averaging 3.4 yards per carry through his last six games. Also, Jameis is healthy and the lousy Bucs pass defense makes it more likely that he will keep throwing and throwing every week.

Jameis is tied for third in the NFL in total pass attempts with 355.

    I’m just at a loss when did the Bucs become such world beaters that JayMiss is all of a sudden holding them back?

    Are people still stuck on Fitztragic’s 2-5 record? Or Glennon’s 2-14 record? Or Freeman’s michael Jackson record? Or is it Sean Kings playoff record when he could get there with 10 points scored?

    Oh btw Joe you forgot to add *garbage yards to that betting line up top. 🙄

  6. AlteredEgo Says: Your comment is awaiting moderation. Says:

    Yeah….not because of Jameis’s ability as a NFL QB but more likely the bookie’s are factoring in BA & JL will be back next year and stick with Jameis….gonna be ugly

  7. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Maybe Joe’s favorite, Scotty Miller can join in on the passing party!!!

  8. Season Is Over Says:

    Vegas sure gets the win total correct each season for the Bucs. They have Winston figured out.

  9. Stanglassman Says:

    Great point season is over. The Bucs were a great team with lots of wins each season and Vegas had us going deep into the playoffs every year and we’d meet their expectations until Jameis came and ruined it all.

  10. NPRSageBoy Says:

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

    Peace, out

  11. Anonymous Says:

    Winston gives the ball away like holiday fruitcake. So when other teams turn his blunders into points he has to sling it around to come from behind. America’s garbage yards QB.

  12. unbelievable Says:

    lol stanglassman, basically.

  13. Tval Says:

    Stanglass is DELUSIONAL. To have the #1 pick, to acquire Jameis, the Bucs were TRASH!!! Own it and move on. Fitz is GONE. LOL!!!

  14. BucHead588 Says:

    355 pass attempts an 14 of those got Picked off an 5 in one game ok say 5 out of the 14 were not his fault that’s 9

  15. Craig Says:

    Yards between the 20s should not matter. What matters is 17 touchdowns, 14 interceptions and 10 fumbles.

    The Cards doubled the number of interceptions they have this season by playing against Jameis.

  16. Craig Says:

    Jameis is also 24-39 in the win/loss column

  17. Ed Says:

    Joe you are riding the passing yardage train, we are all very happy that Jameis is near the top of passing yards. Let’s not lose sight that he is competing less than 60% of his passes. I’m sure his average yards per pass is very good too. But having a low completion percentage means you aren’t extending drives and aren’t controlling the clock. I’m very interested now to look into Bucs time of possessions and punts per game

  18. DB55 Says:

    Don’t forget to tank for tua

  19. Tnew Says:

    Not a hard thing to look up. With one of the worst rushing attacks in the game, something that usually really skews TOP, the Bucs are 6th in the league in TOP.

  20. Stanglassman Says:

    TVAL-I thought it was obvious I was being sarcastic. I was making fun of Season is over for blaming ‘losing’ on Jameis when the Bucs were doing that very well long before he joined the team.

  21. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    TNew you can bet your A$% that Ed did look that number up and then shut it down when he realized how incorrect his assumptions were.

  22. BucsBandit Says:

    Jameis Winston with another stellar round of 6 birdies and ‘only’ 3 triple-bogeys. But how bout dem birdies!!!

  23. MadMax Says:

    Meanwhile, tank for Tua is in the tank….poor kid, he probably wont be able to play again…..Miami will probably be trading down since Burrow is going #1…. so heres our chance to get Chase Young if we’re willing to pay a hefty price.

  24. Buccfan37 Says:

    Miller catching passes is on a mini roll now. The cooler weather will benefit the Bucs overall play.

  25. NYbucsfan Says:

    He is probably the favorite to throw the most interceptions in the last half of the year. Joe I would like to know how many points the Bucs have given up off of Winston’s turnovers?

  26. Sport Says:

    Can you say…. Andrew Luck?

    In BA I Trust!

  27. Capt. Tim Says:

    “Jameis Winston. First QB inducted in to the hall of frame-to never have a winning season. No playoffs.”

    But man, look at those stats!

  28. Pete I Says:

    Another fantastic stat for Jameis “meaningless stats” Winston America’s QB – good for him.

    Here is another stat, his next turnover will be his 95th since entering the league. He leads the NFL in this stat as well – again good for him!

  29. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    Yeah Pete all those meaningless stats that have given the Bucs the lead late in the 4th quarter only to watch our garbage secondary give away the game or a field goal kicker missing chip shots. Yeah meaningless stats when our QB can play corner back too and stop the other team from marching down the field and scoring as time expires.

  31. Hodad Says:

    He’s up there with Philip Rivers for most passing yards. Everybody would agree Rivers is a good QB, but his teams have sucked, and in all his years never made a SB. Him, and Jameis are a lot alike. Put up good numbers, but never win squat.

  32. BiggestBUCSfaninNC Says:

    If I played behind that sorry ass OLine I’d have double the turnovers, the curse of Chucky is alive and well
