Qwest Field will be the site of a key inter-conference game as the Seattle Seahawks host the Kansas City Chiefs. Both teams are surprising division leaders and the Seahawks come into the game at 5-5 (5-5 ATS), while the Chiefs are 6-4 (6-4 ATS). Kickoff is set for 4:05 PM EST.
Kansas City is leading the AFC West through 11 weeks at 6-4, but have the Raiders and Chargers breathing down their neck, each a game back. The Chiefs ended a mini two game losing streak last week in a 31-13 drubbing of the Arizona Cardinals. The team plays much better at home where they are a perfect 5-0. On the road, Kansas City has struggled to a 4-1 record. That may be the biggest key to this matchup. Kansas City has done most of their damage this season with the league’s best ranked rushing attack. The two-headed monster of Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones has led a rushing attack gaining 164.7 yards per game. On defense, the team has been sloppy against the pass, giving up nearly 245 yards per game through the air.

Much like Kansas City, Seattle also has a slim grip on their NFC West division lead. St Louis is within one game of Seattle and San Francisco and Arizona sit just two back. It seems that nobody wants to win the division and it may be that 8-8 or even 7-9 takes the title. The Seahawks have dropped 3 of their last 4 straight up, including a 34-19 pounding from New Orleans last week. Seattle has really struggled on offense, putting up just 300.5 yards per game, which ranks 30th in the NFL. The defense hasn’t been much better, giving up over 388 yards per game. This puts them 28th in the league. The team needs more from the running game in this one.

Chiefs vs. Seahawks Betting Predictions:
Spread Prediction (TOP PLAY) – This is a matchup of teams that are barely hanging on to their division leads and would likely have much worse records if they were in any other division in football. They also both play significantly better at home than on the road, which clearly favors Seattle in this game. Seattle is 3-1 at home straight up this season. They are also 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games at home. A more telling trend is that Kansas City is 2-9-1 in their last 12 games as the favorite.
Top Play Prediction: SEAHAWKS +2.5
Game Total Prediction – The Chiefs should have a field day on the ground against Seattle’s weak defense. Matt Hasselbeck and the Hawks passing game may need to have their best game of the year. The total has gone over in 6 of Kansas City’s last 7 games as the road favorite. Also, the over is 6-1-1 in Seattle’s last 8 games as a underdog.
Prediction: OVER 44.5 points
