Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Green Bay Packers (-3)January 24, 3:05pm ET
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been better on the road. They finished the regular season with a 6-2 record and so far they have added two more victories during the NFL playoffs. First they beat the Washington Football Team, and more recently they beat the New Orleans Saints.
Tom Brady and the offense have maintained their rhythm during the NFL Playoffs as they average 30.5 points per game. The veteran QB leads the postseason passing yards chart with 580, while Cameron Brate (130) and Mike Evans (122) are in the receiving yards top five.
We have been talking about Tampa Bay’s offense all-season long, but their defense has been equally good. They forced two crucial turnovers (four total, and really, they are all crucial) against the New Orleans Saints. They are also the best in the league against the running game.
The Buccaneers are 4-2 ATS in their last six games against the Packers.
After a very well-deserved bye week, Green Bay beat the Los Angeles Rams with a great performance from Aaron Rodgers. The veteran QB finished the game with 292 total yards and three total touchdowns.
Both Rodgers and Davante Adams (9 receptions for 66 yards and one touchdown against the Rams) have been sensational. Allen Lazard and Robert Tonyan have emerged as very reliable No. 2 options for Rodgers.
Aaron Jones, Jamaal Williams and AJ Dillon will try to break a very sturdy defense that allowed just 85 rushing yards to Alvin Kamara on 18 attempts.
The Packers are 15-1 SU in their last 16 games when playing at home against Tampa Bay.

Kansas City Chiefs (-3)January 24, 6:40pm ET
The Buffalo Bills’ fans haven’t been so hopeful and cheerful since Jim Kelly’s days. Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs have been sensational all-season, and the defense has been great during the NFL playoffs.
They come from a huge victory against Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens. The Bills allowed them to score just three points (the Ravens finished the regular season averaging 29.3 points per game).
Josh Allen has thrown for 530 yards during the postseason (second-best) and Stefon Diggs leads the receiving yards department with 234.
The Bills are 4-1 ATS in their last five games on the road.
Patrick Mahomes left the NFL Divisional playoff game against the Cleveland Browns due to a concussion, but he wants (and probably will) to play against Buffalo no matter what. If not, Chad Henne will be under center for the Chiefs.
Before the hit, Mahomes threw for 255 yards and one touchdown; he also ran for 14 yards and one touchdown. As usual, Tyreek Hill (eight receptions for 110 yards) and Travis Kelce (eight receptions for 109 yards and one touchdown) were the preferred targets.
The Chiefs secondary improved a lot, but next Sunday they’ll be facing a much more synchronized offense and a real dual-threat QB.
Kansas City are 0-5 ATS in their last five games at home.
