Seahawks Chiefs Betting Predictions - Seahawks And Chiefs Renew Old AFC West Rivalry

Posted by Tony Bryant on 8/21/2012 6:43:51 PM

The Seattle Seahawks and the Kansas City Chiefs used to be regular in-season rivals in the AFC West. They'll have to settle for a preseason encounter when they meet this Friday evening.

Why Seattle Will Win

If you want to make a winning bet on this game, the emerging line of analysis is that the Seattle Seahawks are trying to build a winning culture. Some teams just go through the motions in the preseason, biding their time for the regular season, but Seattle seems to be taking the other route, the one in which everyone on the roster makes a conscious investment in trying to win games, thereby creating an environment in which winning is expected once the regular season begins. This is not an exact science, predicting which teams try harder in the preseason. However, Seattle – through two games – has clearly shown itself to be just such a squad.

The Seahawks have been strong in the second half, which is always one of the toughest things to predict or gauge for teams in the preseason. They powered past Tennessee in week one, and their reserves produced an inspired second half this past Saturday in Denver. It's true that the starters often have more of a say in the outcome in week three of the preseason, but the flip side of that point is that if Kansas City can't establish a decisive lead in the second half, the Seahawks will have a very strong chance of taking control of this game in the third quarter. Few teams are playing with more raw effort than Seattle, and that kind of thing makes a big difference when making prognostications about preseason football.

Why Kansas City Will Win

When NFL betting students settle in and use brain cells to handicap this contest, they'll map out all the variables and arrive at this conclusion: Seahawks-Chiefs could be decided in either half. If it's a 60-minute battle decided in the third and fourth quarters, the Seahawks will likely win. However, if this is a 30-minute game in which the Chiefs can take hold of the flow of action and smother Seattle at the start, Kansas City will be able to prevail. Kansas City soared to a 17-0 lead over the Arizona Cardinals in week one of the preseason. The Chiefs, having a lot of new and young talent on their roster, could very definitely use added playing time for their starters. The abundance of snaps taken by first-string players could give Kansas City the portal it needs to get the jump on Seattle. It's still an open question if the Seahawks' passing game can make a big impact in the first half. If the Seahawks are especially flat, they'll get steamrolled.

Who Will Win

It’s possible that Kansas City could thump Seattle in the first 20 to 30 minutes, but it's more likely that the score will be close heading into the middle of the third quarter. The Seahawks' backups will shine again, and that's why they'll beat the Chiefs on the road.
