The Tampa Bay Buccaneers achieved a victory against the Cleveland Browns in their first game of the NFL 2010 regular season, winning their first season opener game since 2005. However, this weekend, the Bucs will be facing a tough division rival.
Football betting fans should take into consideration that today, September 19, the Buccaneers will play against the Carolina Panthers, who emerge as the favorites to win this match.
For its part, the Carolina Panthers lost in their first game against the New York Giants. However, it doesn’t means that the Bucs shouldn’t get really prepared to face the running backs DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart, who have tormented the Tampa Bay team in past seasons.
But, for their part, the Bucs have running back Cadillac Williams, despite that in the first week he only managed 75 yards on 22 carries and it is expected that he will repeat the outstanding performance he had in the 2009 season.
In addition, we can’t expect Williams to do all the work alone. It takes an entire offensive line working hard and together, which probably will happen in the game against the Panthers.
Finally, this could be a great opportunity for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and for their quarterback Josh Freeman to start with a 2-0 record and get their first divisional win this season.
