The Seahawks lost four consecutive games ATS before they took out the Giants last week 17-38. The Chiefs were able to win four consecutive games both SU and ATS after they took out the Bills on the road. Both teams, who are former rivals in the division, meet again when Seattle takes on Kansas City at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday, and bookmaker software services know that many fans don’t want to miss this showdown.
The betting line opened with the Seahawks being the favorites by one point, and 42.5 was the total.
Last week, Seattle appeared to be in trouble when they took on the Giants, as they were trailing 17-14 at halftime. But the Seahawks’ running game ground out for 350 yards, and they were able to score 3 TD‘s in the fourth quarter that did not go answered, pulling away for a win of 38-17, and covering by nine points as the favorites at home.
So the Seahawks, after losing consecutive meetings with the Cowboys and the Rams, now have a winning streak of four games as they move into Kansas City. And ever since they ended up losing to Dallas, Seattle were able to outrush and outgain four consecutive opponents. The Seahawks now have a raking of 10th place in total offense and in total defense they’re third. They were also able to outrush their opposing teams by 91 yards-per-game, which is an NFL high.
After they ended up being defeated this season in their first two meetings, Kansas City were able to win six out of their last seven games SU, and also covered seven out of the last eight games. The Chiefs were trailing the Bills last week 13-3 through the game’s three quarters but were able to score twice, and could clinch a win of 17-13. Therefore, being at 6-3 SU, Kansas City currently have the fifth seed in the race for the playoffs in the AFC.
Bookmaker software services can see that in their total offense, the Chiefs only have a ranking of 22nd place, but at 136 yards-per-game they are fifth place, thanks to RB Jamaal Charles, who’s leaving what could be his season’s best game. And Kansas City’s defense have a ranking of seventh place overall, second place in allowed points, and per game they only have 17.
This meeting should be very exciting, and not be an easy one to decide on. However, the Seahawks currently don’t have a lot of consistency at all, and QB Russell Wilson’s weak side was on display. In the meantime, the Chiefs are one of the NFL’s most dynamic teams and should have an incredible amount of support at home. Therefore, many experts believe that Kansas City should be the ones to go for.
