Broncos attempt to right their wrongs in Cali

The Denver Broncos can be a frustrating team to bet on. Just ask anyone who included them on a teaser in Week 6. One week they’re dominating the Dallas Cowboys at home and look like Super Bowl contenders. Then they look sloppy and let an 0-5 New York Giants team punk them. The Broncos will be excited to get back to divisional play on the road and attempt to demolish the L.A. Chargers in StubHub Center.

SHARK BITES
  • The Chargers are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games at home.
  • The Chargers are 2-9 SU in their last 11 games.
  • Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders is ruled out for Sunday’s game with an ankle injury.

You would think the altitude in Denver would be the only reason the Broncos win at Mile High Stadium, but on the road the Broncos have owned AFC West opponents. In their last 18 games, Denver is 15-3 SU and 14-4 ATS. If Philip Rivers takes to gunslinging as he’s known to do, he will continue to throw into the third-ranked passing defense that already picked him off in Week 1.

If you expect the total to go OVER in this game, you may want to think twice. The total has gone UNDER in six of L.A.’s last seven games when hosting Denver.

If all of this isn’t enough info to persuade you to avoid Los Angeles, just know the Broncos are 7-1 SU in their last eight games against the Chargers and it doesn’t help when half of StubHub Center is filled with the opposing team’s fans.
