Team Outlook and Scouting Report

2019 SEASON PROJECTION

The Buccaneers could be poised to improve next season. Their neutral field simulation win percentage is significantly better than last season's win percentage. This improvement does not necessarily mean they are going to be good considering the low bar they have to improve on. Their odds to win the conference are just 40/1, 2.4% and to win the Super Bowl are 80/1, 1.2%. Their simluation based chances to win the conference are 0.4% and their chances to win the Super Bowl are 0.1 percent.

REGULAR SEASON RECAP

Their 5 wins in 2018 did not meet expectations. It was -1.3 below what oddsmakers' money line projected. The season went much worse than expected. Their struggles were primarily on the road. They were OK at home. Their 50% home win percentage was as expected (46.7%). They won 12.5% on the road which was much worse than expected (32.2%). Anyone who backed the Buccaneers in all of their games on the money line would have earned a +20 unit profit at a 100 per game risk. Against the spread, they have lost -70 units risking 110 to win 100 (7-7 ATS). Below is a recap of all 16 regular games.

They are an above average scoring team based on points per game, which make sense given their strong yards per play rank. They are a very poor scoring defense based on points per game and a below average defensive TD rate.
