A couple of Super Bowl contenders meet head-to-head in Week 4 as the Kansas City Chiefs visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday Night Football. The Chiefs were on the wrong end of a big upset in Week 3 as they fell to the Indianapolis Colts by a score of 20-17. Costly mistakes were to blame.
Meanwhile, the Buccaneers suffered only their fifth home loss under the guidance of quarterback Tom Brady last week. The Green Bay Packers marched into town and secured a dramatic 14-12 win. Tampa Bay scored a touchdown with only 14 seconds to go, but its 2-point conversion attempt failed.

Chiefs vs Buccaneers Prediction & Pick
It's safe to say both of these teams want to avoid falling to the .500 mark. Combine that motivation with the fact that two of the best quarterbacks in the NFL are suiting up and fans are in for a thriller on Sunday night. Tampa Bay has gotten the better of Kansas City as of late, but the Chiefs are the pick.
The Chiefs are the pick because they are the healthier team. Brady gets wide receiver Mike Evans back in Week 4, but Chris Godwin and Julio Jones may not play yet again. Tampa Bay has also yet to score more than 20 points in a game this year and that will remain true in this closely contested loss.
Final Score Prediction: Chiefs: 24 | Buccaneers: 20

Chiefs vs Buccaneers Best Bet
All NFL betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.
You can never count out Patrick Mahomes or Tom Brady, so bettors looking to avoid having to choose between the two should shift gears to backing the under in this game. The under has cashed in four of Tampa Bay's last five games overall and in four of its last seven meetings against Kansas City.
The Buccaneers' defense has been unstoppable this year, giving up league-best 9.0 points per game. The Chiefs have looked improved from last year as well, allowing the fifth-fewest yards per play (4.6). This game is full of offensive stars, but look for the defensive stars to make the biggest impact.
Bet: Under 45.5 Points (-104)
