Tampa Bay Bucaneers
The Bucaneers get here with a 2-1 record and lost their last game at home against the Packers 14-12. Tom Brady is not having the start he was expecting as he has made 67-103 passes for 673 yards and only 3 touchdowns. Mike Evans who's back from suspension leads the team with 132 yards received and 1 touchdown while Leonard Fournette has 227 yards in 57 carries.
The Buccaneers are conceding a league-low nine points per game, holding Dallas to a field goal in their 19-3 season-opening victory, and holding New Orleans to a touchdown in their 20-10 victory without allowing one until the fourth quarter. The team limited Green Bay to 14 last week while losing to Aaron Rodgers and the Packers by two points..
Kansas City are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games against Tampa Bay.
Kansas City are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games against Tampa Bay.
The total has gone OVER in 5 of Kansas City's last 6 games on the road.
Kansas City are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games when playing on the road against Tampa Bay.
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Tampa Bay's last 5 games.
Tampa Bay are 10-3 SU in their last 13 games.
Tampa Bay are 11-3 SU in their last 14 games at home.
The Chiefs didn't look good in their last game as they scored scored only 17 points in the game vs Colts and have struggled against the Bucs losing 6 of the last 7 head to head games. The Bucs also have been strugglinig offensively but, after serving a one-game suspension for his part in an on-field altercation at New Orleans two weeks ago, Mike Evans is back in the lineup. Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Julio Jones (knee) were two of Brady's other top receivers who missed the previous two games due to injury are also back in the game so these guys will give a big boost to the Bucs offense so I'll take the Bucs to win at home.
