Chiefs vs. Buccaneers Expert Betting Predictions

Talk about a contrast in styles. The Chiefs have an okay defense, but KC wins games by leaning on their terrific offense. Tampa Bay wins games by leaning on the stingiest and most opportunistic defense in the NFL. Tampa’s 8 takeaways is incredible considering the team beat the Cowboys and Saints and almost rallied agianst the Packers.

But as good as Tampa’s defense is, the offense has struggled. Still, this happens in Tampa, the Buccaneers will be motivated because of Ian, and it’s a matter of time before Tom Brady gets on track.

Tampa’s D will frustrate Mahomes while Brady finds ways to get Mike Evans and Russell Gage the ball. Evans had to sit out the match against Green Bay. Mike should be ready on Sunday. KC will make it close, but Tampa wins and covers.
