Kansas City Chiefs at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Preview & Picks


The Under is backed despite two superstar quarterbacks being on show here.

Defense has been the key for both of these teams as the offenses have faltered in Weeks 1-3.

The Bucs boast the better defensive unit and Todd Bowles showed in Super Bowl LV that he knows how to slow down Mahomes.

That makes Tampa an appealing option in what is likely to be a low-scoring game.

  • The Under has hit in each of Tampa Bay’s first 3 games
  • The Under has cashed in 2 of Kansas City’s first 3 games
  • Tampa Bay are allowing a league best 9.0 points per game
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers are 8-3 in their last 11 home games

Head To Head


  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers lead the all-time series 8-6
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers won 31-9 when the teams last met in Super Bowl LV

Kansas City Chiefs Form


Kansas City go into Sunday Night Football looking to bounce back from their first loss of the season.

The Chiefs opened with a 44-21 win at Arizona, and backed that up with a 27-24 win against the Los Angeles Chargers in their home opener.

They were unable to improve to 3-0 last weekend though, suffering a shock 20-17 defeat at Indianapolis.

QB Patrick Mahomes has gone 74/109 for 857 yards, eight touchdowns and an interception.

The offseason exit of Tyreek Hill has had an impact on the passing game, with JuJu Smith-Schuster the best performing wide receiver with 178 yards.

The team’s leading receiver is, of course, Travis Kelce who has 230 yards and two TDs through three games.

The ground game has not yet got going, with Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Isiah Pacheco combining for just 193 yards and two TDs.

Edwards-Helaire has played a role in the passing game though, with 115 yards and two receiving TDs.

On the opposite side of the football, the Chiefs have allowed 21.7 points per game to rank #17 and 314.0 yards per game to rank #10.

They have struggled to force takeaways too, averaging just 0.7 per game so far.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Form


Tampa Bay are looking to spark their offense and get back on track after a defeat last weekend.

The Buccaneers had to lean on their defense through the first two weeks to beat Dallas 19-3 and New Orleans 20-10 on the road.

The group then held Green Bay to just 14 points in Week 3, but this time their effort was not enough as the Packers won 14-12.

QB Tom Brady, who U-turned on retiring in the offseason, is just 67/103 for 673 yards, three TDs and one pick.

Mike Evans is the team’s leading receiver with just 132 yards and a TD, while Russell Gage (128 yards, one TD) is the only other receiver over 100 yards.

RB Leonard Fournette has rushed for 227 yards through three games, while contributing 54 receiving yards.

With the offense struggling, the defense has stepped up to dominate their first three opponents.

Tampa Bay are allowing a league-best 9.0 points per game and a league-best 2.7 takeaways per game.

They are not giving up much in the way of yardage either, allowing 289.0 per game to rank inside the top five.
