The Chiefs vs. Seahawks game featured a line of Seattle +2.5 after opening as a +1 home dog.

This is it! The season is almost over and still the Chiefs and Chargers are tied on their division so the Chiefs will go all out cause a single loss could mean a trouble. The Seahawks, still projected for Wild Card can't slow down either cause the hunt for Wild Card spots is still hot!

Did You Know? The Chiefs are 14-4 Against The Spread in their last 18 games after allowing more than 250 yards passing in their previous game

From SportingNews: "If Kansas City's previous success against Seattle is any indication, Sunday could prove to be an easy win. Not only do the Chiefs lead the all-time series 33-18, but they have also won the last three against the Seahawks, including a 42-24 blowout in their last road contest against Seattle."

From Gambling911: "It's too early to tell but the line was very steady on -2.5.  60% of the spread action was on KC.  Sagarin suggests this one should be a PICK'EM.  G911 was not giving either side the edge as of Thursday.  That could change as game day draws closer but the books are being cautious here."

From ESPN: "The insider picking Seattle thought the Chiefs' defense was better than its stats indicate.  'When it is time to make it count, they either get to the quarterback or get a bad throw from the quarterback,' this insider said. "I know it doesn't look good stat-wise, but when you watch their games, they do have their moments. They rush the passer well."'

Injuries do not appear to be a major factor here.

Chiefs cornerback Kendall Fuller, who had surgery on his thumb on Friday, is expected to be ready to play Sunday night vs. the Seahawks, coach Andy Reid said. The coach also said Eric Berry would have an expanded role in that game.

The Seahawks' health concerns heading into Sunday night's game against the Chiefs are illustrated in their lengthy practice report for Wednesday. It lists 10 players as not participating and four more as limited, though many are holdovers from last week who were able to play against the 49ers.
