In the win over the Bills, Kansas City QB Patrick Mahomes posted 325 yards with three touchdowns, and Darrel Williams had 52 yards and a TD on 13 carries. Tyreek Hill (nine catches; 172 yards) and Travis Kelce (13 catches; 118 yards; two TD) were the top Chiefs receivers. 

Over on the Tampa Bay side, they had a strong regular season as well, finishing off with four straight wins. In the playoff this year, the Buccaneers ran through Washington 31-23 in the Wild Card, the Saints 30-20 in the Divisional Round, and the Packers 31-26 in the NFC Championship. 

In the victory over the Packers, Tampa Bay quarterback Tom Brady put up 280 yards with three touchdowns and three interceptions. Leonard Fournette posted 55 yards and a TD, and Chris Godwin added 110 yards off five receptions. 

The Chiefs are 4-1 ATS in their last five playoff games as a favorite and 9-4-1 ATS in their last 14 games after an ATS win. Kansas City is 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games overall and 2-7 ATS in their last nine as a favorite. 

Meanwhile, Tampa Bay is 4-0 ATS in their last four games as an underdog and 5-2 ATS versus a team with a winning record. The Bucs are 4-1 ATS in their last five overall and 4-1 ATS in their last five after a straight-up win. 

PICK: I’m going to take a shot on Tampa Bay here. All things considered, this should be a great Super Bowl matchup. The last time these teams met up was November 29, and the Chiefs recorded a 27-24 victory (leading 27-10 after three quarters). Mahomes (462 yards; 3 TDs) and Hill (13 catches; 269 yards; 3 TDs) dominated the KC scoring, and the teams put up a combined 960 yards of total offense. I think this will be a similar affair: a relatively higher-scoring game and a tight finish. Should be another good one, and I think the Bucs can eke into a cover.
