The Tampa Bay Buccaneers ended last season on a mixed note, as they played well enough to be in the playoff hunt, but came up short. That put the Bucs in a dilemma as to if they should stick with quarterback Jameis Winston or look to upgrade after he topped 30 interceptions.
Following the season, the Buccaneers were +5000 to win the Super Bowl. Only nine teams had worse odds. But, following free agency, when they landed Tom Brady, those odds dropped to +2000. Then, following the NFL Draft, they fell to +1200 and eventually settled at +1400 before Week 1.
With Covid-19 shutting down off-season workouts, the Buccaneers were very much behind the eight-ball as they tried to bring Brady into the fold and it showed much of the season and in their Super Bowl Odds.
After Week 8, they sat at 6-2 and dropped all the way to +650 to win it all. But then they lost three out of their next four games to go to 7-5 while their odds fell all the way to +1700 after losses to the Rams and Chiefs. But, they then went on to win their last four games in decisive fashion, bringing their SB odds back down to +1000 going into the playoffs.
Now that we are here, the Chiefs are at -162, while the Buccaneers are at +143 to win the big game. Can they go from +5000 to Super Bowl champs in a year? There are likely some betters out their clutching those +5000 tickets in great anticipation.
