TAMPA BAY, Fla. - Any NFL bettors should know that it is rare to see Tom Brady in the underdog position, especially in a playoff game. Brady and the Buccaneers have been underdogs for the better part of the playoffs and bettors should take note of this heading into the NFC Championship game as money can certainly be made.
NFL sportsbooks have the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as underdogs in different betting situations aside from them being longshots to beat the Green Bay Packers. They are favored to score the least amount of points amongst the teams in the conference championship games and also have the longest odds to win the Super Bowl as well.
Starting with the Buccaneers odds of winning the Super Bowl, bettors can bet on the exact outcome of Super Bowl 55 and the Buccaneers have the longest odds to defeat the Kansas City Chiefs.
Exact Super Bowl LV Outcome

- Packers Win Over Bills +450
- Chiefs Win Over Buccaneers +500
- Bills Win Over Packers +550
- Buccaneers Win Over Bills +775
- Bills Win Over Buccaneers +800
- Buccaneers Win Over Chiefs +800
It is strange that Brady and the Buccaneers have the longest odds to win the Super Bowl here as Brady has the most playoff, let alone Super Bowl experience of any team and player in this conference championship round. Not to say that the Buccaneers did get off to a slow start on the season in Brady’s first year, but they have since picked up the slack and are worth the risk.
If there is one thing that any NFL bettor should have learned over the years of the Tom Brady era, it is to never bet against him in the playoffs. They are the longshots being that they are underdogs against the Packers in the NFC Championship, but they did defeat the Packers earlier in the season with a 38-10 final score.
That being said, bettors looking for a potential moneymaker bet, this is the one to take.
Conference Championship Weekend – Fewest Points Scored
- Tampa Bay Bucs +175
- Buffalo Bills +200
- Green Bay Packers +250
- Kansas City Chiefs +350
Looking at the odds on which team will score the fewest points this weekend, it is strange that the Buccaneers are the favorites here as of the four teams remaining in the playoffs, the Buccaneers actually rank first in points allowed this season. Something else that backs up the Buccaneers not scoring the fewest points is that also of the four teams remaining, the Packers allow the most points per game.
As mentioned before, the Buccaneers successfully held the Packers to 10 points in their meeting in the regular season which is the least amount of points that have scored all season. Looking at the Buccaneers' offense as well, they rank second in the league in passing touchdowns.
That being said, money can certainly be made betting elsewhere.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Vs. Green Bay Packers
- Moneyline: Packers (-200) vs. Buccaneers (+170)
- Spread: Packers -3.5
- Total: 52 Points
Looking at the matchup between the Buccaneers and the Packers, the Packers are favored for a reason being that they finished the season with the best record in the NFC at 13-3 while the Buccaneers finished at 11-5. However, the Buccaneers certainly do have what it takes to beat the Packers as bettors saw earlier in the season.
Something to take note of here in this game is that the Packers will be without two of their defensive starters in defensive end Kingsley Keke and Kevin King. Those injuries are surely going to open up more opportunities for both the Bucs run and pass game as Keke was their starting defensive end and King was a starting defensive back who would usually take the opposing teams WR2.
With that said, this game could come down to the wire in the Buccaneers' favor.
Whether it is betting on the outcome of the Super Bowl or which team is going to score the least amount of points or the NFC Championship Game, Tom Brady is rarely seen as an underdog and his six Super Bowl rings and nine Super Bowl appearances can back that up as that is more than the other opposing quarterbacks remaining combined.
