Bucs Season Odds

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers cleaned house this offseason, jettisoning veteran players, their head coach and their general manager. The Bucs hope all of those changes will equate to a successful 2009 season.

But NFL Futures Odds

In the offseason, the Bucs fired head coach Jon Gruden and general manager Bruce Allen and replaced the duo with new head coach Raheem Morris and new GM Mark Dominik. Then the team released several popular veterans, including long-time linebacker Derrick Brooks, wide receiver Joey Galloway and running back Warrick Dunn. The team also decided not to re-sign quarterback Jeff Garcia.

In free agency, the Bucs lost out of signing DT Albert Haynesworth to the Redskins, but were able to bring back wideout Antonio Bryant after franchising him, and also signed free agents Angelo Crowell, Derrick Ward and Byron Leftwich.

To challenge Leftwich, Tampa drafted Kansas State quarterback Josh Freeman with the seventeenth overall pick in April’s draft. Freeman hopes to start as a rookie, but he’ll have to beat out Leftwich.

Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL have established the Buccaneers’ odds to win Super Bowl XLIV at 50/1. They’ve also given Tampa Bay 25/1 odds to win the NFC and 5/1 odds to win the NFC South.

Tampa is a hard team to figure out with so much turnover, but they do have talent on both sides of the ball. The problem is that Freeman and Leftwich have huge question marks surrounding them and the team lost long-time defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin, whose schemes were always among the best in the league. The Bucs also play in one of the league’s toughest divisions, as the Panthers, Falcons and Saints are all expected to be competitive once again this season. Essentially, Tampa Bay could be a sleeper team this season after finishing 9-7 last year, but again, this team has a ton of question marks.
