If the Buccaneers reach the playoffs this season, they’ll have every right to play the “no one believed in us” card.

Because no one does.

Most sportsbooks have set Tampa Bay’s over/under win total at 6.5. If that seems low, that was the over/under last year, too, and we know how that turned out.

Now, courtesy of CG Technology, we have point spreads for almost every NFL game this season. The Bucs are favorites in a grand total of … (cue the drumroll) … three games. Welp.

Tampa Bay is favored in the opener against the 49ers (-1), in Week 3 against the Giants (-3) and in Week 10 against the Cardinals (-4.5). All are home games.

As for the Bucs’ NFC South rivals, the Saints are favorites in 12 games, the Panthers in eight games and the Falcons in six games.
