Week 16 of the 2022 NFL season features a slate of Christmas Eve matchups, including an inter-conference showdown between the Seattle Seahawks and Kansas City Chiefs.
After an impressive start to the year, the Seahawks have gone 1-4 in their last five games following a 21-13 loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday. Meanwhile, the Chiefs needed overtime for their 30-24 win over the Houston Texansmarking their seventh victory in the last eight outings.
Can the Seahawks find a way to win on the road? Or will the Chiefs stand tall at Arrowhead Stadium yet again?

Total: 48.5 —Over: (-106) | Under: (-114)
The Chiefs enter this contest as clear home favorites on the moneyline and spread on FanDuel Sportsbook’s odds. This Christmas Eve matchup also features an over/under of 48.5, which is tied for the highest of the Week 16 totals.
The Chiefs won’t be slowed down here and a bit part of that is that the Seahawks struggled to stop opposing offenses. Seattle allows the fourth-most points (25.4 PPG), fourth-most total yards (378.5) and allows opponents to convert on 44.9% of third-down attempts (fifth-worst).
Meanwhile, the Chiefs are near the top of most offensive categories and boast too much talent for the Seahawks to keep up. It also helps that the only team that Kansas City has lost to at home this season is the Buffalo Bills, winning each of the other five home contests. I just don’t see the Seahawks being the second team to beat the Chiefs at Arrowhead, especially with the former being on a major skid.
Patrick Mahomes is going to do the things that he does best, pick the Seahawks’ defense a part and bring the Chiefs their 12th victory of the campaign.
Final Score Prediction: Chiefs: 31 | Seahawks: 21
– Seattle is 2-7 against the spread (ATS) in its last nine games against Kansas City.
– Kansas City is 12-1 straight up in its last 13 home games against Seattle.
– The total has hit the over in eight of Seattle’s last 12 games.
– The total has hit the over in each of Kansas City’s last five games against Seattle.
Regardless of which team you’re backing, there should be a tone of offense on display. In addition to two of the top-seven offenses being present, the total has gone over in five of the Seahawks’ seven road games this year, as well as in five of the Chiefs’ last six in December.
Furthermore, the over is 5-0 in the last five Seattle-Kansas City meetings, averaging out to 62.6 points. With the Chiefs still battling for the AFC’s top seed and the Seahawks hoping to make the playoffs, look for both offenses to step up as the over is hit in the process.
Bet: Over 48.5 Points (-106)
