They will host the AFC Champion Chiefs (and reigning Super Bowl champion) February 7. They start the two week countdown to the game as 3.5 point underdogs, by DraftKings Sportsbook.
This means Tampa Bay is also a moneyline underdog, albeit narrow at plus-140. Kansas City is a favorite under the 175 moneyline. Bettors should bet $ 100 on the Bucs to win straight away and make a profit of $ 140. Conversely, the Chiefs’ backers will initially have to risk $ 175 to earn $ 100.
With the game taking place in Florida, the weather will be a minor factor (rain should be the only variable), so the total tilts towards the upper end at 57.5 points.
