San Francisco 49ers vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Betting Odds
San Francisco 49ers
The Niners delivered a meager 4-12 record last season that saw them finish 3rd overall in the NFC West. Naturally, the Niners failed to make the playoff cut. Nevertheless, head coach Kyle Shanahan has been allowed to retain his position. Shanahan is banking on finding success on the backs of Jimmy G. But since Garoppolo went down to injury early in the season, it’s not surprising that San Fran turned in a losing season. All in all, San Fran has enough pieces in play to be a competitive team this season.
Players to Watch: Jimmy Garoppolo (718 passing yards, 5 TD, 3 INT), Matt Breida (814 rushing yards, 3 TD, 1 F), and George Kittle (1,377 receiving yards, 5 TD, 88 REC).
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Bucs finished last year’s action with a meager 5-11 that saw them ranked as the worst team in the NFC South. This was the exact same record the franchise had delivered the previous year, so it’s no surprise to see former Tampa Bay head coach Dirk Koetter getting the boot. In steps Bruce Arians, who just got done serving as the Cardinals’ head coach from 2013-207. Although the Cardinals’ enjoyed some decent success with Arians, the decision is still questionable at best. Most of the Bucs problems came from inconsistency at the quarterback position. They’ll have to get that sorted out if they want to be a playoff contender.
Players to Watch: Jameis Winston (2,992 passing yards, 19 TD, 14 INT), Peyton Barber (871 rushing yards, 5 TD, 1 F), and Mike Evans (1,524 receiving yards, 8 TD, 86 REC).
