49ers at Buccaneers Betting Guide, Picks
Our analysts and experts break down the most important angles of this game.
Here’s an excerpt, but you can read the full thing here.
This one is a layup. Last year the Bucs were No. 1 in the league with 5,358 yards passing, and Jameis Winston had top-three marks with 10.8 air yards per attempt, 1.5 yards to the sticks per attempt and a 20.4% aggressiveness rate (per Next Gen Stats). Winston regularly pushed the ball down the field and displayed a willingness to throw into tight coverage and trust his receivers.
And he has good receivers. He might have the league’s best WR-WR-TE- trio in Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and O.J. Howard.
And now Winston is paired with Bruce Arians, who developed Ben Roethlisberger, oversaw Andrew Luck as a rookie and coaxed career-best production out of late-stage Carson Palmer.
