Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2013 Season Win Total Outlook & Projection:

2013 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Las Vegas Season Win Total Line;
As of this writing, oddsmakers have the regular season NFL win total line for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers set at 7.5 wins.

This number is an increase of 1/2 win from Tampa Bay's prior year finish of (7-9)... It also represents an increase of 1.5 wins compared to last year's win total line of 6.

So what's going on in Vegas? The Tampa Bay 'Bucs season win total line is on the rise-- all while playing in a division with the (13-3) Falcons, and the Brees led New Orleans Saints getting Coach Payton back.

Part of this line has to do with the emergence of RB Doug Martin. The 'Bucs also get RG Davin Joseph back from injury. They also planned to get LG Carl Nicks back as well-- although the timetable has been increased due to a staph infection. Upon his return, Tampa will surely sport the best offensive line in the NFC South and their rushing game could reach new heights.

Other positive factors on the offensive side of the ball include the success of WR Vincent Jackson in his first season with Tampa Bay, and the re-emergence of WR Mike Williams.

On the negative side, the 'Bucs WR depth is poor, and there is weakness at the TE position.

On defense Tampa had the league's worst pass defense last season. One reason was an injury to DE Adrian Clayborn... While his return in '13 could help take pressure off DE Gerald McCoy creating a stronger pass rush year over year, we must also factor the loss of DE Michael Bennett to Seattle in free agency.

But the greatest reason for the poor pass defense was a porous secondary which the Buccaneers addressed with the signings of CB Darrelle Revis and S Dashon Goldson.

If Revis can come anywhere close to previous form returning from a torn ACL, it should dramatically improve the pass defense, while also resulting in in coverage sacks... Goldson's presence is likely to magnify this effect.

On the downside, the departure of DT Roy Miller is likely to hurt Tampa's run defense.

Overall there are considerably more positive than negatives.

2013 Schedule Analysis:
Tampa Bay's schedule ranks middle of the road in 2013, with an easier slate of home contests compared to road games. Overall, the 'Bucs will play just 5 games versus playoff squads from a season ago. That's 1 less playoff caliber contest compared to last season.

The first 3 of these 5 games are on the road. The trip to Seattle will be a long one. But so will San Francisco's trip to Tampa in week 15 which happens to be sandwiched between home dates for the 49ers versus Seattle and Atlanta. The ingredients may be there for Tampa to take this game versus the NFC's top Super Bowl favorite... A home win versus Atlanta would also be just what the doctor ordered.

8 Other potentially competitive games include; New Orleans in week 2, Philadelphia in week 6, Carolina in week 8, Miami in week 10, @Detroit in week 12, @Carolina in week 13, @St. Louis in week 16, and @New Orleans in week 17... Winning more than half of these games (5 minimum) would go a long way toward a possible playoff berth.

Lighter competition includes; @NY Jets in week 1, Arizona in week 4, and Buffalo in week 14... These 3 matchups are games the 'Bucs should take.

A Schedule plus: With LG Carl Nicks currently out, the 'Bucs are fortunate that 3 of their first 4 games come against teams that were very poor against the run last season including; @NY Jets, New Orleans, and Arizona.

Record Projection:
In 2013 we project the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to surprise and take the NFC South with a (10-6) record, topping the Vegas season win total line of 7.5 wins.

The Buccaneers have a great opportunity in front of them. Division rivals Atlanta & Carolina have weak offensive lines. And with so many upgrades to Tampa's pass defense, the 'Bucs could pose a threat to these teams in their current state... Meanwhile, New Orleans has serious issues on the defensive side of the ball, making them potentially ripe for the picking.
