Dallas Cowboys vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Odds: 81% of All Bets On Buccaneers To Win

With the NFL season ready to kick off, the first game of the regular season, which takes place on Thursday, features two teams that had vastly different 2020s after entering with big expectations.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed Tom Brady last offseason. With the acquisition of the GOAT came immense pressure not often seen for a team in a small market like Tampa Bay. The start of the season was rough, but eventually, the Buccaneers ironed out their issues and ended up winning the Super Bowl.

As for Dallas, they came into the season with Super Bowl hopes as well, which isn’t uncommon for “America’s Team”, but they fell short of those goals. It’s easy to point to Dak Prescott’s injury as the reason Dallas underachieved. But, the reality of the situation is that they were a bad team even when he was healthy.

Dak Prescott was putting up big numbers in his first four games, but he wasn’t helping a historically bad defense in any way.

Now, both these teams meet in primetime as the very first game of the 2021 NFL season and they both have massive expectations, once again.

But, as we can see from the latest Dallas Cowboys vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers odds, the Cowboys and Buccaneers aren’t in the same class when it comes to their play on the field, and the betting public knows it.
