NFL 2010 Vegas Lines & NFL Betting Odds: Tampa Bay Still in Rebuilding Mode: In Tampa Bay, the rebuilding process is still ongoing and that status is reflected in the preseason NFL 2010 Vegas lines & odds which put the young Bucs at 50-1 Vegas odds of reaching the Super Bowl for the NFC. 2009 was a lost year in many ways for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who dropped to three NFL picks wins under young head coach Raheem Morris after two straight 9-win seasons. And, with young players at key positions, 2010 promises to be just as challenging.
Defense was always a calling card in Tampa and, while the pass defense finished in the top ten, the rushing defense was dead last and only two teams in the NFL were scored upon fewer times. Led by underrated Barrett Ruud, who amassed 142 tackles in 2009, the linebackers make lots of plays, if only because the defensive line is so bad. High draft picks Gerald McCoy and Brian Price should help but this is a group of underachievers. Without a pass rush, the secondary held its own a year ago and return solid cover men in Aqib Talib and Ronde Barber.
Josh Freeman is now the starting quarterback in town and, while the first round pick from 2009 learns on the job, he will lean on a deep group of backs led by the resurgent Cadillac Williams, returned from a serious injury. Tight end Kellen Winslow is most accomplished receiver and the Bucs are counting on youngsters Mike Williams and Arrelious Benn to develop quickly behind retreads Reggie Brown, Mark Bradley, and Michael Clayton.
Can the Bucs be better in 2010? will the NFL 2010 Vegas lines and NFL betting odds make any adjustments prior to the NFL regualr season? It would be hard to compile a worse record but, as the youngsters develop, Tampa Bay could once again have trouble finding any NFL picks victories in the 2010 NFL predictions season.
