The Kansas City Chiefs were the big winners last weekend after clinching the AFC West with a win over Houston. The Seahawks last had something to celebrate weeks ago, with just one win since the first week in November.
Seahawks vs Chiefs Betting Lines
Seahawks’ Second-Half Has Been a Disaster
The Seahawks entered Week 9, the halfway point of the season, at 6-3 and ready to silence their doubters with a playoff run.
However, since Week 9, the Seahawks are 1-4 straight up and 0-5 against the spread. The last time Seattle covered a game was Nov. 6 against the Arizona Cardinals. Since then, they failed to cover twice as an underdog and three times as a favorite.
Injuries are also an issue for Seattle heading into Week 16, with Tyler Lockett out after undergoing surgery on a broken index finger. Eight additional players are listed as questionable, including RB Kenneth Walker III, TE Noah Fant, and S Ryan Neal.
Chiefs Clinch 7th Straight AFC West Title
Another year, another AFC West title for the Chiefs. KC sealed the deal with an overtime victory over the Houston Texans 30-24. A close call against a one-win team, but a win is a win. The Chiefs enter Week 16 7-1 outright in their last eight games.
However, from a purely betting standpoint, the Chiefs’ season has been a complete disaster. Kansas City is 0-5 against the spread in their previous five games and 2-8 in their last 10. They have not covered a double-digit spread since 2021, with recent ATS losses to Houston (-14), Tennessee (-14), and the Los Angeles Rams (-16). Two of those games occurred in the last four weeks.
So while Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce, and the rest of the Chiefs are celebrating another trip to the playoffs, remember that they are doing nothing for us bettors. With even less motivation than usual to win this game, be wary of trusting the favorites.

Seahawks vs Chiefs Picks & Prediction
Predicted Score: Seahawks 21, Chiefs 30
- Worth Betting on the Moneyline?
No. The only value is on the Seahawks to win outright, but we don’t foresee that outcome coming to be.
- Worth Betting ATS?
No. These teams have a combined 0-10 record against the spread over the last five weeks, and I want nothing to do with either.
- Worth Betting on the Totals?
Yes. The Over hit the previous five games between these two, and the Chiefs have one of the best offenses in the NFL. Combine that with a porous Seattle defense, and we have a recipe for many points.
