Chiefs vs. Seahawks Match Preview & Betting Odds 2018/19
Both teams are looking to bounce back from tough losses after the Chiefs lost their third game of the year to the Los Angeles Charges by a mere point while the Seahawks got edged out by a Nick Mullens-led 49ers team that they had just crushed two weeks prior. Despite their losses, the Chiefs have won 6 of their last 8 games while the Seahawks have won 4 of their last 5.
Kansas City has the best offense in the league, scoring 35.6 points per game, while their defense ranks 5th-worst in the NFL, giving up 27.1 points. The Seahawks also have a top-10 offense, scoring 25.9 points per game, but their defense is just as good, giving up 20.9 points.
This one will undoubtedly come down to quarterback play as the game features two of the game’s best. First year starter Patrick Mahomes leads the league with 4,543 passing yards and 45 touchdowns while throwing 11 picks. Russell Wilson, who has started every game since 2012, has 3,025 passing yards for 31 touchdowns and 6 interceptions.

Pick and prediction:
- Over 53.5:
Kansas City has had little trouble hitting the over in their games, particularly on the road where the over has hit in 6 of 7 games. They are scoring 37 points per game over the last two months so they would need Seattle to score just 17 points for the over to hit.
Despite some offensive issues in their last two games, the Seahawks are averaging nearly 26 points per game on the year and the Chiefs’ defense is giving up the fifth-most points in the league. 65% of public bets on OddsShark are taking the over.
- Chiefs -2.5:
There’s no shame in losing to the Chargers, who may just be the best team in the NFL. The game opened at even odds before the Chiefs grew to a -2.5 favorite and 58 percent of public bets are backing the Chiefs to cover the small spread. The Chiefs have covered the spread in five of their seven road games this year.
