Betting Analysis

Based off the trends I do not see a statistical advantage to either side. Tom Brady is 4-2 and Patrick Mahomes is a perfect 5-0 with Cheffers as the referee. However, if I had to make a choice I would go with Buccaneers against the spread and the Chiefs on the money line along with under the total.
