(NFL) Kansas City vs. Tampa Bay, 10/02/2022 8:20 PM, Score: 41 - 31
Point Spread: 0.00 | -110.00 Tampa Bay (Home)
Result: Loss
This is an 8* SPECIAL on the Bucs.

These two teams are familiar with each other obviously.

Both are 2-1 straight up. Kansas City is 1-2 against the spread, while the Bucs are 2-1 against the spread.

The Chiefs have lost two straight against the spread after their 20-17 loss at Indianapolis last weekend as 4.5-point favorites.

Now they're one point underdogs here on the road against a banged up Tampa team coming off its first loss of the year at home in a 14-12 setback to Green Bay. But the Bucs return a few of their pieces on both sides of the ball this weekend, so expect a much better performance. Especially from Tom Brady, who is always great off a loss.

The difference in the early going, is that the Chiefs are averaging 29.3 points per game and allowing 21.7, while the Bucs are averaging just 17 points per game, while allowing only nine per contest.

Kansas City struggled last weekend against the Colts, and it's only averaged 17.6 points per game vs. the Bucs in their last three against Tampa.

Look for Brady and the BUCS to pull away down the stretch for the comfortable win and cover.

Good luck, NP
