The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will head West on a short week and face the San Fransisco 49ers on Sunday afternoon. By all accounts, it should be a pretty close contest. One of those accounts is the odds page at SB Nation, which is powered by OddShark.

10/09/2011 Tampa Bay 41o-110 41½o-110 42o-110
4:05 PM San Francisco -2½-110 -1½-130 -3+100

You can see that across the three sources, the Bucs are anywhere from a 1.5 to 3 point underdog. A team will be given three points just for hosting the game at home, so I guess that means that the Bucs may even be very slightly favored in this one, but it should still be very close.

We'll have more on this game throughout the week in this StoryStream. For more on the Buccaneers, head over to our Bucs blog Bucs Nation. For more on the 49ers head over to Niners Nation and SB Nation Bay Area.
