The San Diego Chargers (4-11) have little to no motivation to play well in Week 17 against the playoff-bound Denver Broncos (11-4). In main, this is because winning this game could hurt their NFL draft stock, and also because a 5-11 record is just as bad as 4-11, so it would really matter less whether or not they win. The Broncos, on the other hand, have already guaranteed a playoff spot, but need to win (or for Kansas City to lose) if they are to clinch the AFC West crown. More notably, a win by the Broncos (coupled with a loss for the Patriots) could help Denver to the No. 1 seed in the AFC. So, in short, the Broncos, have a lot to lose in this game, something many NFL betting pundits believe will motivate Denver for a winning performance. But are the Broncos that much of a sure bet, or will the Chargers play spoilers in this divisional matchup? Read on to find out.
