Betting on the Los Angeles Chargers (4-7)
The Chargers looked like they have turned a corner when they eked out two wins in consecutive fashion over the Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers, but what followed was a pair of losses to the Oakland Raiders and the Kansas City Chiefs before LA took a bye in Week 12. Hopefully for the Chargers, that extra week of rest will be the key to then returning in the win column. Against the Chiefs in Mexico, quarterback Philip Rivers smuggled four interceptions south of the border and finished with 353 passing yards and a touchdown on 28-of-52 completions. It was a forgettable performance from Rivers, who also didn’t do well in the first meeting with the Broncos this season. Rivers went 32 for 48 for 211 yards, zero touchdowns, and two picks in their 20-13 home loss back in Week 5.
The Chargers, who are scoring 20.4 points per game and allowing 19.8 points, are 6-4 against the spread (ATS) in their last 10 games overall.
Betting on the Denver Broncos (3-8)
The Broncos’ offense is in disarray. For the sixth time this season, the Broncos have failed to produce more than 16 points in a game, including their 20-3 loss on the road to the Buffalo Bills in Week 12. Quarterback Brandon Allen was ineffective for the Bills in that game, as he passed for only 82 yards, zero touchdowns, and an interception on just 10-of-25 completions. The offensive line didn’t help him much, as he was sacked four times for a loss of 33 yards. The Broncos will just have to rely more on their ground attack which keyed their win over the Chargers weeks ago. Philip Lindsay rushed for 114 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries against the Chargers, while Royce Hillman had 61 rushing yards on 13 carries. Expect the duo to find spaces to run through against the Chargers’ defense that is 20th in the league with 112.3 rushing yards allowed per game. On the flipside, the Broncos are averaging 110.5 rushing yards per contest.
The Broncos are 3-1 ATS in their last four games
The Chargers win, 20-17.
