All eyes are on the health of Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Mahomes left the last game with a concussion and if the spread tells us anything, he is expected to start.
Six days out and protocols to clear so nobody knows anything for sure but I’d describe the Chiefs’ general mood as cautiously optimistic that Patrick Mahomes will play against the Bills.

Although the Chiefs beat the Browns, this line will shift dramatically if Mahomes cannot play. The public is riding the red-hot Buffalo Bills. They wanted to get this spread at 2.5 as 55 percent of the wagers in this game jumped on Buffalo when the line was posted. The smart money believes in Kansas City and that is why the spread is moved to -3, despite the public betting Buffalo.
The over/under in this game is the biggest mover of the week. The sportsbooks opened the total at 50 and it was deemed too low by the sharps and the squares as everyone bet on the over, expecting a high-scoring game.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Green Bay Packers
Point spread: Packers -3.5 (opened at Packers -4)
Point total: 51.5
Money line: Bucs +145, Packers -180

Two very popular teams meet in a rematch when Tom Brady and the Bucs take on Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. The Buccaneers beat down the Packers in the first meeting, but Green Bay is playing much better football. The public is willing to overlook that game as 56 percent of the early money is coming in on the Packers. However, the line is moving in the other direction, which is a clear indication that the sharps are betting on the Buccaneers to keep this game close. The smart money has pushed this spread down to Packers -3.5 according to the updated AFC/NFC Conference Championship Odds.
