Seahawks vs Chiefs Prediction
Chiefs 30, Seahawks 24
Kansas City has one of the most balanced attacks in the league. However, their defense has looked incredibly shaky of late, almost leading to a pair of losses to the lowly Texans and Denver Broncos.
The Seahawks are without wide receiver Tyler Lockett, which certainly dampers their chances of winning, but Geno Smith and company should be able to take advantage of the Chiefs’ defensive mistakes enough to keep this game closer than many think.
I expect D.K. Metcalf and Kenneth Walker to carry the offensive load for Seattle while Tariq Woolen, who leads the NFL in interceptions, leads the Seahawks’ defense.
This is not to say Seattle will win. However, in their last six home games, the Chiefs have covered just once, so a spread of 9.5 points seems like a bit much.
