Betting on the Los Angeles Chargers (-3.0)
Regular Season Record: 10-6
The Chargers have clinched a wild-card ticket in the AFC and are coming off a 31-10 home win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 17. Justin Herbert and the Chargers are now on a four-game win streak, and even though they have secured a spot in the postseason, they still have the motivation to take care of business in Week 18. For one, they would love to sustain a winning momentum heading into the playoffs, and they can maximize that by beating the Broncos — again. The Chargers defeated Denver back in Week 6 at home, 19-16, via overtime. Los Angeles kicker Dustin Hopkins was a hero for his team in that game, as he buried all four of his field-goal attempts.
The Chargers are 3-0-1 against the spread in their last four outings.
Betting on the Denver Broncos (+3.0)
Regular Season Record: 4-12
The Broncos are coming off a 27-24 road loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. That was still a much better showing from Denver compared to their performance in their 51-14 beatdown at the hands of the Rams on Christmas Day. Russell Wilson passed for a touchdown and rushed for two more against the Chiefs. There’s no way to go but up for the Broncos, whose 24 points versus the Chiefs were their most in a game since their last win – a 24-15 home victory over the Arizona Cardinals. Denver is also looking for its defense to step up anew in the rematch versus the Chargers. Herbert posted just a 47.1 QB rating in Week 6.
The Broncos are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games after a loss.
The Chargers win, 26-20.
