I check out the spreads quite often, usually several times per week. It's interesting to know that the spread for our home opener started off with us as 4 point dogs, then moved to 1 point dogs and now has shifted back to 2.5 point dogs.

It's usual for the spreads to move based on the number of bets coming in but at this point I feel they just don't know what to expect out of this team.

Which means the Bucs are a 3 point underdog since the home team is usually given a +3 for home field advantage.

Truths:
1.  Never have an argument with an idiot.  They will drag you down to their level and then beat you with their experience.
2.  For some it would be better if they remained silent and be thought a fool than to speak and erase all doubt.

True.   It's sad when the home team is not favored considering they do give a 3 point differential to the home team.    I think 3 points is too much though for the Bucs.  RJS is far from intimidating for opponents these days.

They don't know what to expect because this team could possibly slap teams around, or just flounder again. It could go either way.

With the NFCS tradition of worst to first, a new head coach , two first round starters on both offense and defense, and two major upgrades in FA, I,d say the Bucs would be a tough team to gauge.

Raheem broke that streak.

Last in the division, followed by next to last, then back to last again. Raheem killed and buried that tradition.

Illuminator is a good poster. He sticks to his guns and makes good points. Some don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t like that.

Well we should get +3 for Raheem not being here.
