What did Tom Brady do for Bucs' SB Odds?

Tom Brady Chooses Bucs, 3/18/20 What are Tampa Bay’s Super Bowl Odds?

After 20 seasons with the Patriots, Tom Brady is expected to sign with the Buccaneers, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. What has the expected signing done for the Bucs’ 2021 Super Bowl odds?

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com, the Bucs are now 18/1 to win the 2021 Super Bowl. They opened with 65/1 odds to win next season’s NFL title, so clearly oddsmakers feel as though Brady’s presence will have a profound impact on Tampa Bay’s chances of hoisting the Super Bowl trophy next year.

If Brady does sign in Tampa, he would become the first player in NFL history to change teams after spending 20 seasons with one franchise. He’s 4-0 in his career versus the Bucs, although he’s played just one game at Raymond James Stadium. That resulted in a 19-14 win for the Patriots in 2017.

Brady will go from Julian Edelman, Mohamad Sanu and N’Keal Harry to Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Breshad Perriman. The Bucs also have tight end O.J. Howard, who stands 6-foot-6, so Brady is receiving quite the upgrade when it comes to the size of his targets. It’ll also be interesting to see how Brady fits into Bruce Arians’ system, as the play-caller likes to put the ball in the air early and often.

The eventual signing of Brady will also mean that the Bucs are officially moving on from Jameis Winston, the former first overall pick that spent five seasons in Tampa. Winston threw 30 interceptions last season alone, whereas Brady has thrown 30 interceptions in his last 64 games combined. That stretch dates back to 2015. Brady’s career interception rate of 1.8% is almost half that of Winston’s (3.5%). Last season, Winston threw 25 of his interceptions from the pocket without any duress.
