They may be have been skeptical at first like the rest of the NFL, but it looks like the oddsmakers finally believe in Fitzmagic.


After big wins over two 2017 playoff teams, including the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles, the Ryan Fitzpatrick-led Tampa Bay Buccaneers have seen a solid increase in FanDuel Sportsbook's updated postseason odds.

Does this mean that Tampa may be worth taking a chance on? That's still a touchy subject. 


Despite the early success, the Bucs aren't as talented as the teams ahead of them and Jameis Winston's possible return could muddle things for the team. Yet, it's good to see the Bucs are being rewarded for their strong start to the season. 


The top of the list comes as no surprise anyone. The Patriots, Rams, Jaguars, and Vikings have had great starts to their seasons and look like the contenders everyone thought they would be.


As for the Bucs, let's see how far Fitzmagic can take them against another tough opponent, the Pittsburgh Steelers, on Monday before passing judgment.
