Bucs favored to win the NFC South in 2021

The folks over at believe the defending Super Bowl champs will win the division in 2021.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers missed out on a division title in 2020, but more than made up for it with a dominant win over the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV.

The New Orleans Saints were able to win the NFC South for the fourth straight time last year, but according to, that is likely to change this year.

The Bucs opened up as 4/7 favorites on Thursday despite lingering questions concerning who returns to the team in 2021. Only the Chiefs (2/7) and the Green Bay Packers (1/2) have better odds of winning their respective divisions.

If the Bucs are able to win the South in 2021, then it will be the first division title since the 2007 season, when Jon Gruden and Jeff Garcia helped lead the team to a 9-7 record and Wild Card berth in the playoffs.

It’s still early, but it doesn’t look like the Bucs will be fighting for second place in 2021.
