Can the Chiefs take down the defending champs? The NFL odds say...

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs are currently 1-point favorites over the Seattle Seahawks this weekend at Arrowhead Stadium, according to one odds outlet. (Others have the game as a pick 'em.)

If that line holds, it would mark the first time this season the Seahawks are underdogs. Seattle hasn't just been favorites in all their games; they have been heavy favorites in all their games.There aren't a ton of NFL lines that are a touchdown or more but check out all the lines the Seahawks have been favored by this year:

Week 1 vs. Packers: 6
Week 2 at Chargers: 5.5
Week 3 vs. Broncos: 4.5
Week 5 at Redskins: 7
Week 6 vs. Cowboys: 9.5
Week 7 at Rams: 7
Week 8 at Panthers: 6
Week 9 vs. Raiders: 13.5
Week 10 vs. Giants: 8

Now you see that the Chiefs being a 1-point favorite is fairly significant. It doesn't actually mean anything, we know that. But it is interesting to see the Chiefs are getting some respect from the betting community after winning six of their last seven games.
