How Hurricane Ian Could Impact the Chances of the Chiefs v. Buccaneers

TOPEKA (KSNT) – From now on, Sunday night’s game will be played in Tampa. But, because of Hurricane Ian, that game could potentially be moved to a common location in Minnesota.

On various sportsbooks, the Chiefs currently occupy between -1 and -1.5 favor over the Buccaneers.
But if the game is moved to US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, sports bettors could very well see that line move.

“I could see the line definitely swinging more toward Kansas City being a minus three, maybe even a minus four by the time we get to Sunday,” said The Athletic writer Gene Clemons.

With the game up in the air on where it is being played, it is best to wait for a sport to see what the odds are on Sunday.

“Certainly I would wait,” said top sportsman Chad Gray. “See where the lines move. My gut feeling is that it probably favors Brady and the Bucs that way. It’s indoors, less environmental factors than it might have outdoors.

But if the game is moved, Charlie Rhoades has a different take on the seven-time Superbowl champion and the Bucs.

“I think it’s going to take [Tom Brady] out of his element a bit where he doesn’t have his audience now,” top sportsman Charlie Rhoades said. “He had to change his plans at the last minute. The leaders were already traveling. Think Mahomes and they’ll be fine. I think the spread will actually favor them a bit more.

But in the end, it doesn’t matter who you go with…

“Whichever side you’re on, you probably won’t see people dusting the other side,” Clemons said. “Because I think if you’re pro-Kansas City as the best, three points won’t change anything. If you’re pro-Tampa Bay, now that you get three runs, that obviously won’t change your bet. But you might see people double down and bet a second bet on the same sort of thing.

If Sunday night’s game changes venue, it wouldn’t be the first time. A game changed venue due to weather in 2021 when the Saints and Packers ended up playing in Jacksonville due to Hurricane Ida.
