NFL Week 4 picks, predictions:

The Arizona Republic: Chiefs 24, Buccaneers 20

Jeremy Cluff writes: "The winner of this game moves to 3-1. The loser falls to 2-2 and loses its second straight game. We'll take the road team getting revenge for its Super Bowl 55 loss in this one."

It writes: "This line is a bit tough for taking the road Chiefs, but I just can’t justify betting on the Bucs right now. The injuries have piled up and with offensive line woes creating issues on top of the receiver depth chart, I suspect this offense will struggle until they get healthier. I’m curious if this line sees much movement, but as long as it remains under a field goal, I’d lean KC."

Bill Speros writes: "The Buccaneers defense shut out Rodgers and the Packers in the second half in Week 3. It will keep Tampa Bay in this game no matter which nameless receivers are on Brady's playsheet. Head coach Todd Bowles was the defensive coordinator who smothered Mahomes in Super Bowl 55. Mike Evans will be back after his suspension. Julio Jones and Chris Godwin could be back, as well, and Brady needs them. This line is reasonable and within a field goal, so a win and cover should go hand-in-hand here for your NFL Week 4 picks. This game could be moved depending on what happens with the weather on Florida's Gulf Coast this week."

Will the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in their NFL Week 4 game?

Miami Herald: Go with the Chiefs on the moneyline vs. Buccaneers

Adam Walford writes: "The former Super Bowl opponents meet for the first time since that 2021 game in which the Buccaneers won comfortably. They are each coming off losses and are 2-1. Despite a mistake-filled game against the Colts, the Chiefs offense has proven to be as good as ever despite the loss of Tyreek Hill. Meanwhile, Buccaneers defense has helped them overcome a ravaged receiving corps. They held the Packers to just two scores in Sunday’s 14-12 loss to the Packers. This will be an intriguing matchup between the preseason second and third favorites in the Super Bowl odds, and we locked in the Chiefs to win straight up early at -115 in the first of our Week 4 predictions before the number went up."

Pro Football Network: Take the Buccaneers with the points vs. Chiefs

BJ Rudell writes: "A fascinating matchup made even more compelling by each team’s surprising Week 3 loss — the Bucs at home to the Packers, and the Chiefs versus the seemingly anemic Colts. On Sunday, much hinges on the health of Tom Brady’s elite company of receivers, although a returning Mike Evans obviously will pay huge dividends. Meanwhile, the Chiefs are headed toward an interesting crossroads if they lose this one, as it would significantly open up the AFC West. Patrick Mahomes and his backfield struggled against Indy. Tampa Bay’s defense won’t be any easier."

CBS Sports: Buccaneers have a history of bouncing back after losses

Tyler Sullivan writes: "In the lookahead, this line swung in favor of the Chiefs, who were a 1.5-point road favorite. That has continued to move up and is now -3 against Tampa Bay as of Monday morning. This could be for several reasons, including a banged-up Buccaneers receiving unit and the possibility that this game gets moved due to a hurricane set to hit the Tampa area. If this game moves to a neutral site, that could move this line even more. The Buccaneers -- who fell to the Packers in Week 3 -- have responded well to losses as they are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games following a SU loss."

ESPN: Buccaneers have a 64.2% chance to win the game

The site's Football Power Index gives the Chiefs a 35.4% shot at picking up the victory.
