The Kansas City Chiefs travel to Tampa Bay to take on the Buccaneers in Week 6 on Sunday, and odds makers are going with the home team.

According to OddsShark, the Buccaneers are currently favored by 4 points after the line opened earlier this week at a three-point Tampa Bay advantage. The current over/under is resting at 40 points after opening at 43.

A possible reason for both shifts could be the availability of Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel, who suffered a concussion and left the field in last week's 9-6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, opening the door for backup Brady Quinn.

With Cassel's, who is waiting on medical clearance, chances to play in doubt, Quinn would make his first start since December of 2009.

Tampa Bay, on the other hand, is coming off its bye week. In Week 4 they dropped a close 24-22 contest to the Washington Redskins, thanks to a late drive engineered by Robert Griffin III.

In the two team's last six meetings, according to OddsShark, the total for points scored has gone over the set number four times.
