The Denver Broncos will play the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday Night Football in Week 6 of the NFL regular season at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.

The Denver Broncos are 2-3 this season after they lost to Indianapolis by a score of 12-9 in overtime of their last game. Denver gained 375 yards in this game, but turned the ball over twice and went 2-15 on third down attempts in the loss. The Denver offense is averaging 15 points per game with 231 passing yards per game and 112.6 rushing yards per game. Russell Wilson has thrown for 1,254 yards, four touchdowns, and three interceptions for the Broncos this season. Melvin Gordon III (questionable) has rushed for 193 yards and one touchdown, while Courtland Sutton has caught 29 passes for 417 yards and one touchdown for Denver. The Denver defense is giving up 16 points per game and 289 yards per game.

The Los Angeles Chargers are 3-2 this season after they defeated the Cleveland Browns by a score of 30-28 in Week 5. Los Angeles fell behind 14-0 in the first quarter, but was able to outscore Cleveland 30-14 to end the game with a win. The Los Angeles offense is averaging 24.4 points per game with 291.2 passing yards per game and 99.2 rushing yards per game. Justin Herbert has thrown for 1,478 yards, 10 touchdowns, and two interceptions for the Chargers this season.

The Los Angeles defense is allowing 27.2 points per game with 368.2 yards per game.

Denver is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games and 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 Monday games. The under is 5-0 in Denver’s last 5 Monday games. Los Angeles is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games and 8-2-1 ATS in their last 11 October games. The over is 5-1 in Los Angeles’ last 6 home games. The home team is 5-0 ATS in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.

Denver has been a mess this season and will have to travel to play Los Angeles on Monday night. The Chargers have won two games in a row, but their defense has not been very good. The Los Angeles offense has been playing well, but will face a good Denver defense. I like the Chargers in this game, especially with how Denver has played this season.
