The Tampa Bay Buccaneers ended the 2019 season with a 7-9 record and Jameis Winston at QB throwing 30 interceptions that included a pick-6 that ended their year. It was the 12th-straight season that the franchise failed to qualify for the postseason.
Not only that, the team hasn’t finished a year above .500 since 2016 and before that was 2010.
Mid-March, everything changed when former New England Patriots GOAT Tom Brady signed with the franchise. One month later, things got even better when Rob Gronkowski was traded to the team and made the squad a serious Super Bowl contender.
In the eyes of the BetMGM oddsmakers, the addition of Brady and Gronk has increased their chances greatly of winning the 2021 Super Bowl LV.
Via Sportsbook Wire:
“BetMGM has shortened the Bucs odds to +900, down from +1600. They were +5500 before the Brady acquisition! That’s some big offseason movement from a team rarely associated with being Super Bowl contenders.
+900 represents 9/1 fractional odds, implying the Buccaneers have a 10.0% chance of winning Super Bowl LV. A $100 wager at +900 returns a profit of $900 — at the original +5500 odds, a $100 wager would return a profit of $5,500 should the Bucs go on to win this season’s championship.”
2020 might be a dream year for Bucs fans.
