Denver Broncos at Los Angeles Chargers Final Betting Prediction
One team has a significant edge over the other. The Chargers are playing like a team destined for the playoffs. The Broncos are playing like one of the worst teams in the NFL.
That doesn’t mean Denver can’t turn it round. The team has enough talent to do so and the defense remains one of the better units in the AFC.
But the Broncos’ offense is a disaster. Starting left tackle Garrett Boles and starting running back Javonte Williams are out for the season. Russell Wilson is suffering from a torn lat muscle.
The problem Denver will have in this is keeping up with a Chargers’ offense that ranks second in passing yards and eighth in points per game. Not only that, but the trends point to a Chargers win and cover.
Nothing has changed on since Sunday. The Bolts remain the pick to cover in NFL Week 6’s Monday Night matchup.
