Tampa Bay Buccaneers just a slight underdog to the Kansas City Chiefs
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are only slight underdogs in their upcoming matchup with the reigning Super Bowl champions- the Kansas City Chiefs- this Sunday.
The Buccaneers and Chiefs are set to do battle this Sunday afternoon at 4:25 p.m. E.T. in Tampa Bay and the Bucs will be looking to rebound from a loss on Monday Night Football to the Los Angeles Rams.
The Bucs are currently 7-4 and in the thick of the NFC wild-card race while the Chiefs continue to be one of the top teams in the league, on their way to what many expect to be yet another lengthy postseason run.
Though the two teams haven’t had the same amount of success by any means, Vegas is still giving its fair amount of respect to Tom Brady and this Buccaneers unit.
Expect the line to grow, but for the Buccaneers to be competitive when it’s all said and done
After the performance we saw on Monday night, it wouldn’t be surprising in the very least to see the line trend more towards the Chiefs’ direction. Kansas City is an established team with perhaps the best quarterback in the league in Patrick Mahomes and an offense that can score at basically any point.
That being said, there’s something about this matchup that makes me think the Bucs will at least be competitive.
I’m not saying they’ll pull off the upset, but what I am saying is that this team has been very good about rebounding following a disappointing loss every single time this year and something tells me they’ll come out more focused and efficient this week against the Chiefs as they look to bounce back.
It will be interesting to see how the Bucs look as this game will serve as a measuring stick for what they need to accomplish to become truly competitive for a run at the Super Bowl.
