Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Football betting odds and lines

 The future of head coach Jon Gruden with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will depend on this football season's performance.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Football betting odds and lines Tough time for head coach Jon Gruden as the Tampa Bay Bucs finished the 2006 footballs season with a 4-12 record and lost the starting QB Chris Simms in the third game. Although heroic effort to finish the game with internal injuries, Simms did little to help the Buccaneers. Questionable performance from the new quarterback Jeff Garcia, brought in from Philadelphia to finish the job. Only time will tell if Simms has recovered from his injuries and if Garcia would help at age 37 if needed. The defense also weakened last season, dropping from the top 10 for the first time in a decade at 17th overall. The Buccaneers are healthy and should make a run for the playoffs this season or Jon Gruden will be history.

 The Tampa Bay Buccaneers scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter during the third week of preseason, defeating the Miami Dolphins 31-28 at Dolphin Stadium. Bruce Gradkowski was 10-for-16 for 104 yards and two touchdowns, while Joey Galloway caught two passes for 39 yards and a score for the Bucs. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers won an offensive battle in a 31-24 win over the Houston Texans - Luke McCown tossed three TD passes and finished 15-for-20 with 203 yards for the Bucs, while Paris Warren caught two touchdown passes in the victory.

 But the bookmakers expect little from the team this year and the betting odds on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers remain on the low-end underdog. These are the betting odds on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, as posted by the online bookmaker Bodog Sports (new window):
