How to bet on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers


The moneyline is the simplest of bets, decided by the straight-up winner and loser of each game. Consider the following example:

  • Bucs -145
  • Patriots +190

The Buccaneers are considered heavy favorites in this matchup (indicated by -145), requiring a $145 bet to win $100 (plus the initial bet back). The Patriots are the underdog in this matchup, paying out $290 total for a $100 bet ($190 in winnings). How much either team wins or loses by does not matter in moneyline betting, the payout remains the same.

Point spread

Betting on the point spread is determinant on how many points a team wins or loses by. Take the following example:

  • Bucs -2.5 (-110)
  • Ravens +2.5 (-110)

In this example, Tampa Bay is favored by 2.5 points, indicated by “-2.5.” If the Bucs win the game 31-27, the Bucs (-2.5) win the bet and would have a total payout of $19.09 on a $10 bet ($9.09 in profit). If the Ravens keep the game within three and lose 33-31 the Ravens (+2.5) would win, and the payout would be the same as listed above.

Point total (over/under)

The point total refers to the over/under line set by books. This number projects the total number of points scored in a game and, like prop betting, is bet whether one thinks the score will go over or under the set point total. For example, the Buccaneers’ Week 8 matchup with the New York Giants had a projected point total of 49.5 points. Tampa Bay won the game 25-23, resulting in 48 combined points. Those that bet under the point total would have cashed out.

The Buccaneers fielded one of the most lethal scoring offenses in the NFL coupled with one of the league’s best defenses. Once the offense found their stride (32.9 points per game after Week 5), Tampa Bay’s games garnered higher than league average over/unders, typically between 49 and 54 points. However, that mark was highly dependent on the opposing offense and its scoring capability.

In-play and live betting

Sometimes, the most thrilling and rewarding bets are bets made while games are being played. These are referred to as live bets or in-play bets. Odds are ever-changing during games, which would prove to be fruitful for sharp and prepared bettors. For example, if the Bucs (-225) were heavily favored against the Panthers (+190) before kickoff, a payout on a $10 bet on the Bucs to win would win just $4.44.

However, say the Bucs fell to a big 17-3 deficit in the first half despite controlling the overall game (due to a costly turnover or special teams gaffe). Odds may swing in favor of the Panthers, who may be a -110 favorite at halftime. Taking the Bucs to come back and win the game could present plus-odds (say, +130). Should a bettor take Tampa Bay (+130) at halftime and the Bucs pull off the comeback, winners would win $13 instead of $4.44 (plus the initial $10 bet).

This could also be an effective way to “hedge” your bet; say a bettor took the Panthers (+190) in that game, but Tampa Bay jumps out to a 17-0 first quarter lead and is controlling the overall feel of the game, bettors could hedge by throwing some money down on Tampa Bay (-270) to return some of the inevitably-lost bet.

Parlays and teasers

You can always string bets together in the form of parlays or teasers. Usually during busy Sundays, bettors can parlay several teams to win or cover against the spread and if all bets are successful, the payouts are multiplied. Teasers function similarly, except they allow bettors to move each point spread to a more favorable line in exchange for diminished odds.

Buccaneers 2020 recap

Record: 11-5

Record ATS: 9-7

Over/under record: 9-7

It’s hard to analyze any metrics of the Buccaneers besides their Super Bowl win. Outside of a four-game stretch between Weeks 9 and 12 where Tampa went 1-3, Tom Brady’s squad pulled in a 14-2 record. The offense caught fire after Week 4, where they averaged almost 33 points per game (including four games of 40+ points). The Bucs were swept in the regular season by the Saints– marking Brady’s first time being swept in his career– but redeemed themselves by defeating New Orleans in the NFC Championship Game.
