Get ready for the Holidays, as this weekend we get the jingle bells, and a big feast that will likely make us roll out of the dinner table afterward; but we also get a ton of exciting matches in the regular NFL season.
In one of these matches, we get the Kansas City Chiefs, who will be hosting the Seattle Seahawks at Arrowhead Stadium, and by looking at the run of each team, we can be excited about this one.
The Chiefs are on an excellent run so far, and have a comfortable lead on the AFC West, as they are currently on an 11-3 run, while the Seahawks are currently 2nd in the NFC West with a 7-7 run.
The Seahawks are having trouble being behind the 49ers, so if they have anything to prove, they might just go all out for the sake of it.
However, the Chiefs are enjoying the top by being relentless, and it seems like that continues to be the plan for this match.
Expect an exciting match to start our day right before Christmas Eve. You can check all the NFL betting odds here at Gambyl.

Why Bet the Kansas City Chiefs
For the Chiefs, it wasn’t all sunshine and roses last week, but they found a way to get the job done against the Houston Texans and advance to 11-3 on the season.
There are certainly worrisome issues on the defense that will need correcting if Kansas City hopes to advance deep into the playoffs this year, but it’s important to point out what Patrick Mahomes is doing on offense.
Last week, Mahomes completed 87.8% of his passes against the Texans with a total of 41 pass attempts.
Additionally, the star QB is currently on pace to finish just shy of Peyton Manning’s all-time single-season yardage record, and it’s not being talked about enough.
This Chiefs team lost one of the most explosive playmakers in the entire NFL this past offseason and replaced him with a committee of other wideouts, and Mahomes hasn’t skipped a beat.
Why Bet the Seattle Seahawks
The Seahawks are in the midst of a season-defining spiral that has cost them control over their destiny, and it’s hard to see them pulling up in time to save the season when on the road at Arrowhead.
Seattle seemed destined to be in the postseason just a few short weeks ago.
Their offense was firing on all cylinders, the defense had been playing well enough to keep things close, and they were winning games.
Unfortunately, Seattle has now lost three out of their last four games and currently sits outside of the NFC Playoffs looking in.
At 7-7 now, they’re behind both the New York Giants and Washington Commanders for the remaining two NFC Wildcard spots.
They’ll need to string together some wins over the final remaining three weeks to push their way in, but that won’t be an easy task here as big underdogs in this matchup against one of the hottest teams in the league.
Final Betting Analysis: Chiefs vs. Seahawks
The Chiefs are healthy and should get Mecole Hardman back in a move that will bolster their red zone offense and overall team speed.
With Kadarius Toney also healthy, the Chiefs should be back to their high-scoring ways.
That should help force a tempo that the Seahawks simply cannot match without Tyler Lockett available (broken finger).
Altogether, the Seahawks have talented players and are well-coached, but the Chiefs are favored by so much for good reason.
The key for Kansas City winning this matchup is simple — trust Mahomes. As long as he can continue to deliver elite performances week in and week out, they’ll consistently put up victory after victory.
Look for a straight win on the Moneyline Chiefs. If you put $100 on the Chiefs at -526, you’ll be looking at a $19.01 win with a total payout of $119.01.
