The Bucs opened as three-point favorites in this weekend's matchup with the Chiefs.

Matt Stamey-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers opened as three-point favorites over the Kansas City Chiefs in their Week 6 matchup. Since the line opened, it has moved a bit and the Bucs are now favored by 3.5 or four points, depending on the sportsbook.

The Bucs, who are coming off a bye week, are off to a 1-3 start to the 2012 season. All three losses, though, have come by seven points or fewer. Their last game was a 24-22 home loss to the Washington Redskins.

The Chiefs are off to a 1-4 start and they're coming off a 9-6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 5. They also lost quarterback Matt Cassel to a concussion in that game, and he was not able to practice with the team on Wednesday. If he is unable to play against Tampa Bay, backup Brady Quinn would get the start.

Kickoff for Sunday's game is set for 1 p.m. ET on CBS.
