Betting market: The Chiefs are getting steady bets and cash as 2.5-point favorites — 54% of tickets and 67% of money (see live data here) — and the oddsmakers have adjusted by increasing the juice on the -2.5 or moving up to -3, depending on the book.
The over is getting 67% of bets and 93% of money, moving up to 54.5. — Mark Gallant
Trends to know: Will the Chiefs bounce back after losing to the Chargers last Thursday? History says yes.
Since 2003, good teams that have won at least 70% of their games are 63-43 against the spread following a loss late in the season (December and January). — John Ewing
Since Andy Reid took over in Kansas City, the Chiefs are 32-17-1 (65.3%) ATS on the road, covering by 5.2 points per game to profit bettors 14.2 units, making them the most profitable road team over that span. — Evan Abrams
Playoff picture: Both teams need this game, but ironically, the Chiefs — who are tied for the second-best record in the NFL — need it a tad more.
Seattle cannot win the NFC West, but is very likely to make the playoffs (96.3% chance, according to our sims). A loss could bump the Seahawks down from the 5-seed to the 6-seed, but that’s really about it.
Kansas City, meanwhile, would secure the No. 1 overall seed in the AFC with a win. — Scott T. Miller
