Why Bet The Denver Broncos To Beat The Chargers

The Broncos lost their first game of the season at the hands of the Falcons by a score of 23-16. What makes it worse, they lost at home. Denver dropped to 4-1 SU and 4-1 ATS this season. They average 25.4 points per game (10th) and allow 17.4 points per game (5th).

The Broncos average 225.8 passing yards per game (25th). Rookie Paxton Lynch completed 23-35 for 223 yards, one touchdown, and one interception last week. He was sacked six times.

“We have to help him better, us as coaches,” Kubiak said during his postgame press conference, shortly before he fell ill. “We got down early in the game. We were committed to running the ball today and tried to do that early. We did not run the ball well. We get down by 13, something like that, and were struggling to protect him. We put him in a really tough situation. That’s not the type of game you want to put him in. We battled, we just didn’t play very well. You have to give Atlanta a lot of credit. They came into our place, played with a lot of poise and made a lot of big plays against us.”

Season starting QB Trevor Siemian (824 yards, 6 TDs & 3 INTs) missed last week’s game against Atlanta because of a shoulder injury. Several reports are hinting that Siemian could be ready to play this week.

WR Demaryius Thomas (26 rec, 381 yards, 3 TDs) caught a touchdown pass last week. Fellow WR Emmanuel Sanders (32 rec, 373 yards, 3 TDs) was held off the scoresheet.

Denver averages 101.4 rushing yards per game (16th). RB CJ Anderson (84 car, 293 yards, 3 TDs) recorded fewer than 50-rushing yards for the third week in a row.

Denver has the 11th-ranked total defense in the NFL. They allow 186.0 passing yards (3rd) and 115.4 rushing yards (22nd) per game. The Broncos have recorded 19 sacks this season (1st). Brandon Marshall leads the team with 28 tackles. Von Miller has the second-most sacks in the NFL with 6.5.

Why Bet The San Diego Chargers To Beat The Broncos

The Chargers keep finding to lose games late. They dropped to 1-4 SU and 3-2 ATS on the season after losing 34-31 to the Raiders last week. K Josh Lambo missed a game tying, 36-yard field goal with less than 2-minutes. It brought back memories of Ace Ventura Pet Detective. Botched hold.

“You can’t make this stuff up," Philip Rivers told in the press conference after the game. “You think, `Is there any other way we can find a way to do this?'”

San Diego averages 30.4 points per game (2nd) and allows 28.4 points per game (27th). They also average 282.4 passing yards per game.

QB Philip Rivers 1469 yards, 11 TDs 6 3 INTs) completed 21 of 30 passes for 359 yards, four touchdowns, and two interceptions last week. Rivers has had a great year individually without a top-tier receiver, running back or offensive line.

WR Travis Benjamin (28 rec, 394 yards, 2 TDs) leads the team in receptions and yards. WR Tyrell Williams (21 rec, 358 yards, 2 TDs) follows Benjamin as Rivers secondary target.

The Chargers average 90.4 rushing yards per game (20th). Sophomore RB Melvin Gordon (89 car, 299 yards, 6 TDs) currently leads the NFL with seven touchdowns this season but has contributed toward the Chargers’ last two second-half collapses by committing a turnover in both contests. This comes after Gordon lost four fumbles as a rookie, but coach Mike McCoy maintains the former first-rounder’s involvement won’t be impacted by his recent ball security issues.

The Chargers have the 24th-ranked total defense in the NFL. San Diego gives up 292.0 passing yards (27th) and 83.4 rushing yards per game (8th). They have recorded 12 sacks this season (8th). Jatavis Brown has 28 tackles, and Melvin Ingram has 3.0 sacks.
