Season-Win Total

May 6th, 2021

She doesn’t look like a stat geek.

There is only one stat nerd Joe can tolerate. And the reasons are clear for anyone who can see.

So the good people of Las Vegas have set their season-win totals; the Bucs are at 11.5.

The NFL Network resident numbers person, Cynthia Frelund, the same girl who told the world last summer the Bucs had the No. 32 secondary in the NFL, thinks people should be running — not walking — to their nearest gambling app/short-term investment broker or airport to fly to someplace you can wager and hammer this number on the Bucs.

Frelund, speaking on “Total Access” last night, said the 11.5 over/under on the Bucs’ season-win total is an ATM waiting to be tapped. She said the Bucs will go over. It’s a no-brainer in Frelund’s eyes.

“Did someone forget there is a 17th game?” Frelund asked. “This is the easiest higher I can possibly imagine.”

Then Frelund added the defending Super Bowl champs “got better” since winning the Super Bowl.

Last year the Bucs won 11 games.

You can see and hear Frelund break down the Bucs and their projected season-win total in the NFL Network video below.

    What exactly is a “state geek”?

    C’mon Joe. It is not that expensive to hire a proof reader!

    I dunno, Joe, I nominate Mina Kimes; summa cum laude from Yale, cute & funny.

    A geek that works for the state.

    The grammar police that frequent this site are very irritating. Must be nice too never misspell, when turning out multiple articles a day, in you’re line of work. I wonder what there profession is? Yes I no

  9. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I’m going with 13-4 for next year…..although, I think they can do better, I wouldn’t bet any higher.

  10. catcard202 Says:

    I’d be inclined to take the OVER. 12-5 / 13-4 seems about right – as long as TB12 stays clean/injury free.

  11. Swampbuc Says:

    She’s got a point with 17 games. But, injuries — the stat geek should know that the Bucs were lucky with the injury demons last season. Yes they had bumps and bruises, ME, CG, JPP, DonS, Rojo, SMB even AB nicked up and OJ, Cap, Shipley lost, Vea with the miraculous return. But not TB, DW, or LVD. If any of those three are seriously injured, especially Tom, it’s tough to get to 11.

    Can you hammer the over and hedge with an injury bet?

  12. JimmyJack Says:

    Did she make a point? I dont know i wasnt listening.

  13. SB~LV Says:

    I’d be happy to double check her “stats”

  14. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Prediction: 14-3. Bucs tank the last game in the annual meaningless Week 17 Falcons game. Blaine Gabbert reminds fans that he’s nothing more than a decent backup.

  15. TampaTown Says:

    I don’t like her. Has nothing to do with her looks. Just don’t respect her football knowledge plus I feel like NFLN keeps trying to force her to happen.

    she needs to bring me a sammich

  18. Fred mcneil Says:

    I don’t think that 17th game was such a great idea.
    I think the last game is supposed to be Indy as I understand it. At least the way they worded it.
    I’d like to guess 14 and 3.

  19. Beeej Says:

    Absent massive injuries, I really can’t see them losing a single game. This team is so much better than everybody else it’s not funny

  20. Bruce Blahak Says:


    28 STRAIGHT….

  21. SB~LV Says:

    Beeej…. only one injury would throw a great freak’n monkey wrench in the works….#12

  22. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Some analysts have actually said lower. There is noway the Bucs lose 6 games next regular season, unless armageddon happens. meaning playing without Brady. And I am going to root for 20-0. Do not care about why they cannot do it. I would just like to see the Bucs have an immortal season baby. GO BUCS 20-0. Again I really do not care about any reason why they cannot, or why it will not happen. GO BUCS!!!!! 20-0 and World Champs again. Yeah, I said it and we shall soon see if it actually happens. To think the Bucs would have won the Super Bowl last year after the Saint Debacle, or the KC boat race, other than Tony Romo, you would have been called nuts. lol lol lol And then to Beat Drew Brees and Rodgers and Mahome Boy to win it all. Yep you would have been called looney. BUT it happened. 20-0 Baby LET’S GO BUCS!!!!!

  23. Buxszntkt Says:

    Give us a break Joe ! She doesn’t look like a stat geek, she looks like a HEAVILY photoshopped announcer !!!
    Funny how these talking heads get to reverse direction so easily.
    Still I’ll take Charissa Thompson or Kay “the it girl” Adams any day over CF !

  24. AlabamaBucsFan Says:

    Bucs are on a roll. Not only did they return their starters and coaches, they picked up some quality backups in both the draft and FA. Secondly, this will be Brady’s second year in the system. I would think, he’ll improve.

    My bold prediction 15/2

  25. Mike pizzoli Says:

    The hottest woman in sports media is Kristine leahy hands down

  26. BillyBucFan Says:

    You are dreaming of an ATM situation with Freuland lol

    You ‘comment police’ are just as frustrating.
    I have been bustin’ Joe’s balls for 9 years now over misspelling.
    He knows I am not serious.
    Glad to see that I took some free rent in your head tho

    Butter face.

  29. EA Says:

    I’m starting to not like her very much, looking pretty and fake smiling will only take you so far, she’s clueless more often than not .
    Anyway I do agree with the over on this. Tom Brady has one goal in mind this season…….Perfect Season.

  30. The Red Mirage Says:

    If you have ever watched her show it’s obvious she doesn’t watch games. She just spits out stats that are pretty meaningless. As far as being hot, there are much hotter women down in Ybor every day.

  31. Chesapeake Bay Bucco Says:

    Hey Red, when it comes to you, that’s only a mirage! U WISH those ladies (or Ms Freuland) were interested in YOU! Ha ha!

  32. kgh4life Says:

    I’m sure Cynthia Frelund is competent at her job, however, the majority of talking heads on NFL Network I don’t take seriously. Brian Baldinger on the other hand, he actually watches film.

  33. FortMyersDave Says:

    Lets go with the over 12-5 or 13-4 which incorporates the type of game like the “2019 Bear debacle” into account which rear their ugly head and give the JBF board a lot of troll traffic. Cynthia Frelund is hot but if so is most of the female talent on sports TV which in general is great to look at as poster above mentioned via examples so her looks do help keep her in front of the camera. If the lady had her current skills but was five foot flat, 190 pounds with a double chin she would definitely be using her analytics skills elsewhere; perhaps on a platform like Yahoo with some of the “talent” presently there who look like they might be in a Maiden Claiming Race at Tampa Bay Downs if not employed at Yahoo……

  35. MadMax Says:

    Shoot, i dropped a 100 on us winning again right after the SB…9-1 odds I think. Won on 100 with 11-1 odds with the crazy place i signed onto…they wont pay me until i deposit more, so im done with them.

  36. Buczilla Says:

    I rarely agree with her, but cute and smart is a tough combo to beat

  37. Buxszntkt Says:

    I don’t know , Leahy is a middle of the road gal. Pretty , yeah. We’ve discussed this before. If you’re going to go for a weekend in Vermont, to a log cabin, Kay is your girl !
    If you’re going clubbing to some swank spot in NYC, Charissa is your girl.
    Not sure where Kristine fits in, perhaps a day on the beach, windsurfing. I’ll give u that.
