Gamblers Like The Bucs

May 11th, 2021

Joe isn’t sure what all of this means in the end.

If you are a lucky man (woman?) who lives or works in a liberated if not forward-thinking state where one can legally wager on sports, the majority around you is betting on the Bucs. A lot of cash is going in Tampa Bay’s direction.

In fact, per David Purdum and Doug Kezirian of BSPN, the money-favorite to win the Super Bowl is — the Bucs.

(Joe never imagined typing that last sentence in May. My, how things have changed around these parts.)

More bets — and more money — have been placed on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to win the Super Bowl than any other team at William Hill sportsbooks.

Super Bowl wagering

Top five by bets:

1. Buccaneers
2. San Francisco 49ers
3. Cleveland Browns
4. Kansas City Chiefs
5. Green Bay Packers

Top five by money wagered:

1. Buccaneers
2. Chiefs
3. 49ers
4. Browns
5. Los Angeles Rams

Think people that bet on the Packers are sweating these days?

The Bucs are a really popular team now. The nation’s team? Well, not yet.

But if the Bucs repeat, the national Bucs fanbase will explode if there’s no retirement party for park-violating, home-invading, NFLPA-ignoring, down-forgetting, handshake-stiffing, jet-ski-losing, biscuit-baking, tequila-shooting, smartphone-phobic, waffle-grilling, trophy-throwing, roller-coaster-scared, numbers-rules-peeved, Bucs-Super-Bowl-winning quarterback Tom Brady.

That could mean many more nationally televised games in the future.

    Remember last year every analyst except Skip was saying 8-8 or 9-7. Not cus what they really thought, but because they has NO F&CKING CLUE. And the game is so fake and bad these days with all the money. If Rog and the owners want KC vs TB in the Super Bowl again, they will make it happen.

  4. ocala Says:

    It is because the Bucs have the best roster. Gamblers like to make money.

  5. I CARE NOW Says:

    I’m betting on the a Bucs vs Raiders super bowl.

    Chucky didn’t unretire just to have his legacy destroyed.

    Plus the story line of Back to Back teams playing home super bowls will and all the other story lines with that match up is to good to pass up.

    And before you say the Raiders are garbage. Answer this question, what teams beat the Chiefs last year?

    “Again ths key to the success of the team is

    Unplug Byron Leftwich headset

    Since the Bucs were 7-5 after the bye week

    They did just that”

    I love this team top to bottom….
    I’m really interested in seeing who is the surprise player that won’t make the team…. I like Justin Watson on special teams and the fact that it seems like the veteran receivers really like him but man aren’t we super deep at skill positions.

    I am glad that the league isn’t fully aware of J.Darden I see at least two ST touchdowns this season (wishful thinking)

    I CARE NOW – Unless Gruden is gifted another SB-ready team from Tony Dungy, he’s going to be lucky to even make the playoffs. In 2002, the defense, which Gruden literally had nothing to do with in terms of schemes or coaching, was THE best passing defense of all time, and if not the best defense of all-time, at worst they’re in the top 3, likely top 2. That’s why Gruden won the SB, not because his 18th ranked offense that turned the ball over in the 1st quarter of every playoff game that season. The Bucs defense allowed a net of 3 points, in 3 games, in the playoffs. Even overrated Gruden’s sorry offense could score more than 1 point a game.

    So unless Chucky is given another SB-ready team by someone, he’s not getting anywhere close to another SB. Certainly not with that gutless QB he has. Maybe if he gets Aaron Rodgers he can choke in the AFC Championship game, but I doubt they can even get that far.

  13. Rod Munch Says:

    Buc-em-up84 – Watson stinks and serves on purpose on this team, they’re not keeping 7 WRs, so Watson is gone.

    As for Darden, I like the pick as a future #3 WR, and I think he can return punts for us, but his college returns were nothing special. Doesn’t mean he can’t break something, but I wouldn’t bet on him turning things ago. However, a year from now, I think Darden is going to be valuable as WR, and that’s when we’ll see his value. But for this year, he’ll earn his keep returning punts and running gimmick plays that Scotty Miller consistently loses yards on. Darden is more in the mold of AB than anyone, so I hope there is a way for him to learn from AB without all the personal baggage, that would be ideal. Not saying Darden is ever going to be close to AB as a player, just saying he profiles as that type of WR, so any tips/tricks that AB gives, any mentoring, would be great.

  14. Big Shooter Says:

    I think Darden will be close to AB. He has a chance.

    I’ll be in Vegas next week cashing my ticket from SB LV and rolling it over on SB LVI

  16. Patrickbucs Says:

    Rod you are way off. If it was Dungy’s team then why couldn’t they score a single td against the Eagles? It was a completely different offense that blew up in the playoffs. Dungy won one SB not because of defense.

    D was awesome for sure though.

  17. Buckaroo Boozie Says:

    My monies on the Bucs to win it all and will gladly donate 10% to Joe’s favorite charity if he stops using that annoying Brady moniker just to fill a page right now!$$$
