The Denver Broncos play host to the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday afternoon after a bye week. The Chargers come in off a thrilling win against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Los Angeles Chargers come in off a win against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Chargers blew a 3 possession lead in the 4th quarter. A touchdown with 2 minutes left to go would seal the victory for the Chargers in what almost was a gut wrenching loss. Herbert passed for 382 yards and rushed for 90 yards .
Quarterback Justin Herbert is averaging just under 300 yards per game through the air, tossing 22 touchdowns compared to only eight interceptions. The Chargers are ranked 27th in the league in scoring defense.
Before their bye week, Denver took a 17-point loss to the Eagles at home. They were favored and still lost to a 3-6 eagles squad.

The Chargers are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Denver and the underdog is 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 meetings. The Broncos are 11-5 ATS in their last 16 games following an ATS loss. The Chargers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall and are 1-9 ATS in their last 10 games in November
I like the Broncos in this one as they are well rested. The Chargers should have lost that game against the Steelers with the way they played in the fourth. The Chargers have made comebacks all season long but this doesn’t look like that spot for them.
