Sure, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won a paltry pair of games in 2014, but with the No. 1 overall pick in hand and the Bucs heading into Year Two of the Lovie Smith era, I believe Tampa Bay could be transformed from the mistreated ‘step-sister’ into none other than Cinderella herself…if you get the idea.Let’s take a look at why the Buccaneers could bounce back better than a 1970s ‘super ball’ once the 2015 sports betting regular season gets underway this coming September.
2015 Super Bowl OddsTampa Bay Buccaneers +20000The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-14 SU, 7-9 ATS, 5-11 O/U) will almost assuredly draft former Florida State signal-caller Jameis Winston with the No. 1 overall pick in the upcoming 2015 NFL Draft and it is that selection first and foremost, that has fueled my belief that the Bucs could become one of the top Cinderella teams this coming season.

However, if Winston can control his life off the field, I believe he could become one of the better young signal-callers to come into the league in the last few seasons.Not only that, but I also believe Tampa Bay’s free agent additions will help the Buccaneers improve immensely on the defensive side of the ball in 2015 under the defensive-minded Smith.
