Chiefs vs. Buccaneers Betting Preview
Numbers nerds are excited for this one. The final Chiefs at Buccaneers stats will reflect an NFL matchup between two of the best quarterbacks in the league, Patrick Mahomes and Tom Brady.
When facing Brady, Mahomes has averaged 352 yards in the five all-time meetings. Brady has countered with 280 yards per game in the five meetings, including the win in Super Bowl LV and a win in the 2018 AFC Championship Game.
Regardless of what the final Chiefs at Buccaneers odds say, for this game, you are advised to take the over.
Prior to 2020, there wasn’t much history between the Chiefs and Bucs. They’d played a total of 12 games, and Tampa Bay led 7-5.
But during that 2020 regular season, the two NFL teams played a great game, and the final Chiefs at Buccaneers stats featured 90 thrown passes and 960 yards of total offense. The rematch in Super LV was not nearly as dramatic, with Tampa Bay winning 31-9.
These two teams are used to being at the top of the NFL Standings. Kansas City has won six consecutive AFC West titles, and Tampa Bay won the NFC South last season.
And the Chiefs at Buccaneers odds reflect just how good both teams are and how high their expectations reach. Tampa Bay opened as modest 1.5-point favorites, playing at home.
The NFL schedule makers put this game on Sunday night to take advantage of the great NFL matchup and showcase two of the top NFL picks to win the Super Bowl.
The Chiefs vs. Buccaneers stats that you should focus on revolving around the two quarterbacks, who have been in the top four in passing yards in each of the last two seasons.
In 2021 Tom Brady was ahead of Mahomes, and in 2020 it was Mahomes just over 100 yards ahead of Brady. They also had an identical 7.4 yards per passing attempt in 2021.
The game is being played at Raymond James Stadium, which has been the home of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers since it first opened in 1998. Its most notable feature is the pirate ship located in the north end zone.
Raymond James Stadium has hosted three Super Bowls, including Super Bowl LV, when the Buccaneers became the first team in NFL history to win the Super Bowl on their home field. The Buccaneers are 105-91 all-time at Raymond James Stadium.
