Money rolling in for Tampa Bay.What is Las Vegas thinking about the Buccaneers and Steelers game this weekend?So far Tampa Bay Buccaneers T-Shirt , Vegas has pegged the Buccaneers as underdogs twice and both times they have been wrong. In no way am I a professional gambler, and in no way am I telling you to put your money with what I predict. This is really just for fun and something we here at Bucs Nation thought the readers would enjoy after sports gambling was legalized. For those that don’t know sports gambling, I will quickly go over the three main bets that are often placed. Also, the lines could always change and the website you use, could be different from mine. Betting with the spread: Currently, the Buccaneers are +1陆 . This means that if you were to take the Buccaneers with the spread, they could lose by 1 points and you’d win. On the opposite side, if you took the Steelers at -1 陆 , they’d have to win by 2 for you to win the bet. Spread bets always have the same odds, which are -110. This means that you need to risk $110 to win $100. This spread is basically a Pick’em’ type game. It’s probably not worth it to take Tampa Bay at +1 陆 . Money line bets: As of Saturday evening Tampa Bay Buccaneers Hats , the Steelers are -125. The Buccaneers are +105. In money line bets, all the team you bet on has to do is win. In terms of what the -125 means for the Steelers, you’d have to risk $125 dollars just to win $100 because they are the favorite to win this game. The Buccaneers at +115, means that a $100 dollar bet would win you $115 dollars. The money line on Tampa Bay has dropped over the recent weeks. If you remember, week one Tampa Bay was +440. Over/Under bets: Again, no matter what way you pick, the odds in this case are -110. Vegas sports books currently have the over under at 53陆 total points scored . If you take the over, the Bucs and Steelers must combined to score 54 points in order for you to win. Obviously, the under is 53 or under.So now we get to the part where I try and beat Vegas. Last week, I picked Tampa Bay straight up (+150) (won) and I also took the over 44 陆 (won). My current record on the season is 3-1. I will continue to keep a tracker all season of how I am doing. For now Tampa Bay Buccaneers Hoodie , let’s continue to ride the wave.A few things to consider. Pittsburgh is 6-0-1 straight up (moneyline) in it’s last seven games on the road. Pittsburgh is also 5-1 in it’s last six games when playing on the road against Tampa Bay. So, history says Steelers right? I don’t buy it. In their last five games, Tampa Bay is 5-0 at the spread (+1 陆). The public is actually on Tampa Bay at +1 陆 . Tampa Bay opened at +2 陆 underdogs and in some cases the line has moved to +1. That tells me that Vegas has received big bets in favor of Tampa. In regards to that, 56% of the public is on Tampa +1 陆 and 68% are on the over of 53 陆. My picks: Buccaneers at +115 and the over 53 陆. Even if the over under was 60, i’d still take it. It’s going to be a shootout come Monday night. I don’t think either team has enough talent in the secondary to slow down the opposing offense. Both teams have the top two offenses in the league through two weeks, and Big Ben has thrown the ball 101 times through two games. It’s a must win for Pittsburgh, but they have a lot of drama surrounding them and I think it’ll be too much for them to overcome, which is why I picked Tampa +115. Let’s see if we can make it 5-1 on the season.Marpet talks about his move to left guard Today marked the day that veterans reported to training camp and Ali Marpet gave an update on his transition from center to left guard this offseason. Tampa Bay Times reporter Greg Auman tweeted this video clip where Marpet explains how the move to a new position has gone. Marpet started his career at right guard and had an impressive rookie season. He only improved on that start in his second year and looked to be on the verge of playing at a Pro Bowl level. The Bucs coaching staff wanted to get a bigger presence in the middle of the offensive line, and with 2016 free agent right guard J.R. Sweezy finally healthy after a back injury forced him to miss all of 2016, Marpet was moved to center for the 2017 season. Although Marpet played pretty well at center Youth Customized Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jerseys , the offensive line as a whole underperformed and top free agent center Ryan Jensen was brought in and Marpet, in a surprise move, was moved to left guard. The progression of Marpet at left guard will be one of the main storylines I’ll be watching for during training camp. Him playing well would hopefully give the offensive line a dominant side, for running the ball, like fans saw in Logan Mankins last season in 2015. The guard play on the offensive line last year really underwhelmed at times and contributed to the 40 sacks on Ryan Fitzpatrick and Jameis Winston. Another storyline about his move to left guard is that Marpet is in a contract year. Unless the Bucs resign him before (the should) or during the season, his level of play could influence what type of deal he can demand at the end of the season.Will he be able to replicate the success he had at right guard? Will his presence help Donovan Smith be more consistent in his 4th year? Those answers will go a long way in deciding if the Bucs have a winning 2018 season.
