Kansas City Chiefs vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers O/U Odds

  • Over 45.5 -110
  • Under 45.5 -110

The O/U for this game has slipped from 47 at opening to 45.5 at the time of writing. The Bucs have been hitting unders recently, with four of their last five games going under.

In addition, the Bucs are missing some significant pieces from their offense. Center Ryan Jensen is on IR, WR Chris Godwin is out, and WRs Mike Evans and Julio Jones are designated probable and questionable respectively.

One potentially important wrinkle for O/U bettors is that Kansas City’s kicker, Harrison Butker, is listed as questionable with an ankle injury.

The absence of a quality kicker could influence the O/U significantly, and this, combined with the injuries to Tampa Bay’s offense, could be a reason why the online sportsbooks are dropping the O/U.
