NFL betting for Week 9 has the Tampa Bay Buccaneers favored on the road against the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Bucs come into the game at 5-3 and a serious playoff contender in the NFC while the Chiefs are already looking at next year. It has been rare in recent seasons to see the Chiefs getting big points at home but that is the case in this football betting matchup as Tampa is laying more than a touchdown.
NFL betting statistics show that the Chiefs have actually won 4 of the last 6 meetings between the two teams but since they play rarely, that goes all the way back to 1981. The most recent meeting between the two teams was in 2004 at Tampa Bay as the Bucs won 34-31 according to NFL betting stats. You then have to go back to 1999 for the next meeting which Tampa won at home 17-10 according to football betting numbers. The teams played three times in Kansas City in the 1980’s and the Chiefs won each time according to NFL betting stats.
Tampa has been just about a 50-50 proposition in NFL betting as road underdogs the past few seasons while the Chiefs are nothing special getting points at home going 4-5 since 2005 according to NFL betting stats.
Looking at the NFL betting total we find that Tampa Bay has gone under more than 60% of the time under on the road since 2005 according to football betting numbers. The Chiefs are about .500 on the total at home during that same time period according to football betting stats.
The Chiefs have been a tough team to figure out at time this season for NFL betting gamblers. Rarely do bettors want to back them but occasionally they show up and cover the NFL betting number. Last week at New York they nearly upset the Jets outright and easily covered the big NFL betting number. They could have a tougher time covering the NFL betting number against a Tampa team that is stronger than the Jets.
