2-Star Best Bet – **First Half Over (26.5)

Lean – TAMPA BAY (+3.5) over Kansas City

Tampa Bay’s offense is underrated due to averaging only 3.9 yppl against the Saints and Rams during two prime-time games in the past three weeks when everyone was watching. However, the Buccaneers have the 4th-rated offense by our metrics and they have the potential to get even better as Chris Godwin gets healthier and Antonio Brown is meshed into this passing attack. A huge issue for Tom Brady and Tampa Bay’s offense has been the injury to LG Ali Marpet, who has sat out the last three games with a concussion. Rarely does a player miss an extended period of time with a concussion and I would think Marpet has a good chance of returning to the field this week. Marpet ranks second in pass blocking efficiency among guards and he will be crucial limiting DT Chris Jones (42 pressures).

Tyreek Hill is taking 59% of his snaps in the slot this season and I expect Patrick Mahomes to be looking for his Pro Bowl wide receiver when he’s lined up on the inside. Bucs’ NB Sean Murphy-Bunting is surrendering 1.68 yards per cover snap in the slot, which ranks 26th out of 27 qualifying nickelbacks. RT Mike Remmers ranks 6th in pass blocking efficiency filling in for Mitchell Schwartz and he will contain edge defender Shaquil Barrett, who only trails Aaron Donald this season in total pressures (55).

Our model favors the Chiefs by 1.7 points with a predicted total of 59.5 points. There is more value in the first half total because these offensive coaching staff like to come out firing. Tampa Bay and Kansas City are two of the few teams in the NFL averaging more points in the opening half than second half both this year and in 2019. The 1st-Half Over 26.5 was a 2-Star Best Bet at -115 odds or less and the alternate play is a 1-Star Best Bet Over 55.5 or less (Strong Opinion Over 56).

I’ll also lean with Tampa Bay, as Tom Brady is a 54-15 straight up and 47-22 ATS in his career in games following a loss, including an incredible 19-2 SU and 20-1 ATS from -2 to dog (3-0 SU as a dog of more than 3 points).
