NFL Handicapping: With or without Winston, Tampa Bay's early season schedule is daunting

Jameis Winston's impending three-game suspension
hasn't caused much of a reaction in the betting markets. A handful of sportsbooks took Tampa's season over/under win total and Week 1's game at New Orleans off the board. Others felt comfortable leaving them up with the thought that there would be little to no drop off with Ryan Fitzpatrick now slated to be under center. Regardless of who takes the snaps, the Bucs will be up against it the first third of the season. Tampa opens at New Orleans followed by back-to-back home games vs. Philadelphia and Pittsburgh and then a trip to upstart Chicago. Tampa then gets a bye week but follows it up by playing in Atlanta. That’s five games in a row where Tampa projects to be an underdog.
