Point spread and line: Seahawks vs. Panthers, Titans vs. Chiefs

Preview of the Week 15 football games, including point spread and betting line, Seattle Seahawks vs. Carolina Panthers and Tennessee Titans vs. Kansas City Chiefs.

Point spread and line: Seahawks vs. Panthers, Titans vs. Chiefs We will start this Sunday football preview with the Week 15 game between the Seattle Seahawks (9-4) and their visit to the Carolina Panthers (5-8). Although starting the season a little clumsy, the Seahawks overcame the problems and are now on their 5-game winning streak, looking to make it six and close the NFC West title chase. The odds makers are confident that Seattle has what it takes to win on Sunday and at the online sportsbook Bodog Sports (instant deposits avail.) the point spread on the Seattle Seahawks vs. Carolina Panthers is sitting at -8 points chalk the Seahawks with the total at 37 points. Carolina will be underdog once again, the betting line on the Panthers listed at +270 and the line on the Seahawks is -340.

 The Carolina Panthers got beaten badly last week by the Jacksonville Jaguars 6-37 and if they lose the Sunday game against the Seahawks, all statistical chances of getting to the playoffs will be gone for good. Coach John Fox has yet to name the starting quarterback for the Week 15 game and will likely be a game-day decision. Vinny Testaverde was upgraded to probable, as well as wide receiver Dwayne Jarrett. Another Panthers wide receiver, Keary Colbert, remains doubtful for the game against Seattle. The Seahawks will play on Sunday without WR D.J. Hackett and CB Josh Wilson, while safety Brian Russell is still questionable against the Panthers. Running back Shaun Alexander, however, was upgraded to probable, along with DT Rocky Bernard and safety Mike Green. Keep in mind that Seattle is 5-0 against the spread in its last 5 games and Carolina is 1-6 against the spread in its last 7 games.

 The other NFL Week 15 game we will look into is the Sunday matchup between the Tennessee Titans (7-6) and the Kansas City Chiefs (4-9). The Titans started the season as a contender for the playoff spots, but bad play in the second half of the season and losing last week at home 23-17 against the Chargers have slimmed down their chances to mere statistic. Tennessee will have to win the remaining games and hope for the best, and the bookmakers are giving them the Sunday game. At Bodog Sports the point spread on the Tennessee Titans vs. Kansas City Chiefs game is currently favoring the Titans -4 points with the total sitting at 34.5 points. Tennessee will be the betting line favorite this weekend with money line of -190 and the line on the Chiefs is posted at +165.

 Long list of injuries in both teams will prevent them from showing out their full potential, but on average the Tennessee Titans lead the Kansas City Chiefs in offense, scoring on average 7 points more than the Chiefs, while both teams allow 20 points per game. Betting trends show that Tennessee is 1-4 against the spread in its last 5 games and Kansas City is 1-5 against the spread in its last 6 games. The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Kansas City's last 6 games when playing at home against Tennessee.
