NFL betting odds are wide open for the NFC West as it is an embarrassment of a division that the Seattle Seahawks are leading by default with the NFL betting lines.
The Seattle Seahawks will host the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday in a critical interconference matchup for both teams. The game will be telecast on CBS with a kickoff time of 4:05 PM ET.
Kansas City opened at Sports-Gambling as a 1 point favorite with an over/under of 43. The Seahawks have played their best football at home this year and have proven to be resilient when counted out.
The Kansas City Chiefs have a record of 6-4 both straight up and with the football betting odds and have an even 5-5 split on over/unders this year.
The Chiefs are coming off a 31-13 bounceback home payout over Arizona which snapped a 2 game losing streak as they are now in sole possession of first place in the AFC West with Oakland and San Diego 1 game behind. The Chiefs remain the top rushing team in the NFL with Jamaal Charles, who has 848 yards.
While the passing attack ranks 26th, it has been better than the ranking because Matt Cassel has eliminated most of the mistakes that he made last year in his first year on the job in KC. Dwayne Bowe leads the Chiefs with 715 receiving yards and 11 TD’s. The defense ranks 12th for points allowed.
Seattle has a record of 5-5 both straight up and with the football betting lines with just 2 of their games going under the total. The Seahawks are coming off a 34-19 loss at New Orleans and have dropped 3 of their last 4 games. Seattle still leads the hopeless NFC West by 1 game over St. Louis and 2 games over Arizona and San Francisco.
Seattle has been inconsistent on both sides of the line as they rank 28th for total defense and 29th for total offense.
Veteran quarterback Matt Hasselbeck has passed for 2110 yards and the special teams have provided the winning margin at times for the Seahawks as Pete Carroll has proven to be an asset at coach so far with the NFL betting odds compared to before his arrival. Seattle has paid out in 3 of 4 home games so far this year.
