Our experts use the latest sportsbooks odds to generate the implied probability and calculate the Buccaneers playoff chances. Implied probability is the odds number converted to a percentage which gives the team's current chance to make the playoffs.

The data provided above comes from some of the most credible media outlets. Among them are the New York Times Postseason Simulator and ESPN's Football Power Index (FPI), which measures the strength of the team via net points scale; expected point margin vs average opponent on a neutral field.

Do the Buccaneers Have a Chance to Make the Playoffs?

Yes. The Buccaneers have a chance to make the playoffs as does all teams before the NFL season begins. There are plenty of concerns the Buccaneers organization needs to address if they want to have a true chance to make the playoffs this year. While going just 8-9 last season, the Buccaneers won the NFC South in a year where the whole division struggled to stay consistent.

While the Buccaneers should not be considered a potential “bottom dweller” next season, it is tough to imagine a situation where they can be better with the amount of change expected this off-season. The Buccaneers will still have a great defense, changes at quarterback, offensive line, and trying to get under the 2023 salary cap, make the likelihood that they are in the playoffs slim.

Could the division be down again and the Buccaneers sneak in? Sure. Likely? No.

Where Can I Bet on the Bucs to Make the Playoffs?

You can bet on the Buccaneers to make the playoffs. Most major sportsbooks in the US will feature Buccaneers playoff chances and many other NFL futures bets. You must be 21+ and in a state with legal sports betting. Unfortunately, Florida does not currently offer legal sports betting. It's best you travel to a state nearby like Mississippi or Tennessee to place a legal bet on the Buccaneers to make the playoffs. 

NFL playoff odds are not available from sportsbooks this early into the offseason. Immediately after they are posted we will have the latest Buccaneers playoff odds updated weekly in this article.

Looking Ahead: Bucs Playoff Picture

The 2023 iteration of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will look quite a bit different than the last three playoff teams. Primarily, the Buccaneers will be looking to replace future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady at the helm. 

The 2021 second-round draft pick Kyle Trask is in the driver’s seat for the position as the only quarterback on the current roster, but do not be surprised to see the Buccaneers active in free agency and in the NFL Draft.

The Buccaneers will likely investigate free agent quarterback’s Jimmy Garoppolo, Drew Lock, Geno Smith, and others to compliment the quarterback room, as well as, potentially drafting a quarterback with the 19th pick of the 2023 NFL Draft. 

Tampa Bay will be led by a new offensive coordinator – Dave Canales, the former quarterbacks coach of the Seattle Seahawks. 

The Bucs find themselves currently $55 million over the salary cap, including $35 million in dead money with Tom Brady’s contract. The Buccaneers will be looking to re-sign linebacker Lavonte David and re-evaluate the contracts of offensive lineman Donovan Smith, running back Leonard Fournette, and tight end Cameron Brate to get under the cap limitations.

The team's record will likely reflect a re-build, and while they may not be totally out of potentially making the playoffs it should not be expected.

Are the Buccaneers Out of the Playoffs?

No, the Buccaneers are not out of playoffs because the season hasn't kicked off. No team is out of the playoffs just yet. Although no team should be ruled out before the season begins, top sportsbooks like BetMGM are expected to be much lower on the Buccaneers than they were last year.

There will need to be significant moves made by Tampa Bay this offseason if they want to be a playoff contender. Unfortunately, the Buccaneers will most likely find their playoff chances in the middle of the pack at best.

Buccaneers Super Bowl Odds: Betting on the Bucs in 2023

The Tamp Bay Buccaneers will head into the 2023 NFL season without Tom Brady. Unless they find a quarterback who can immediately win games for them at an NFL level, the Buccaneers Super Bowl odds are likely to take a major hit.

⭐ BetMGM+8000+8000
⭐ Caesars+8000+8000
⭐ DraftKings+7500+7500
⭐ FanDuel+7500+7500

Most sportsbooks will hover around the same odds this early into the NFL offseason. BetMGM has the Buccaneers Super Bowl odds at +8000 to open. Caesars is in agreement with that assessment for now.

DraftKings and Fanduel Florida sportsbooks are giving the Buccaneers a bit more credit, but that could change as we witness Tampa Bay's offseason moves unfold.
