Vegas sets over/under at six wins for Tampa Bay

is it too low?

NFL: Atlanta Falcons at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Coming off of back to back 5-11 seasons, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have yet another new coaching staff and Bruce Arians and his highly touted coaching staff will look to bring success back to the bay area.

It has been a bit different this off-season with the limited cap space available, but Jason Licht has still managed to sign many quality depth players/borderline starters.

To this point, I really like what Tampa Bay has done this off-season as they have built the depth of the football team. As Bruce Arians said last week, give me 10 $3 million dollar guys over 1 $30 million guy and I couldn’t agree more.

The Buccaneers will also be picking fifth in the upcoming NFL draft and should be able to grab a franchise player on the defensive side of the ball, but that doesn’t seem to make the oddsmakers over in Vegas change their mind about Tampa Bay.

The over/under for the total amount of wins is set at 6 and the team is projected to finish last in the NFC South yet again.

There are certainly still plenty of holes on this roster, especially in the secondary and specifically at right guard, but my god, six wins seems to be a little low.

I don’t think it’ll be a 10-6 year, but I do think Tampa Bay has a very good chance of reaching the 7 win mark. I don’t expect playoffs in year 1 of the Arians tenure, but over 6 wins should hit.

What do you think Buccaneer fans? Are you ready to bet the mortgage on Bruce Arians and company winning two more games then the previous staff did the last two years? I am.
