Kickoff from Invesco Field is set for 4:15 ET. The Broncos will be hoping to reverse back-to-back years of miserable results against San Diego who’s beaten them four straight both straight up and against the pointspread. It’s not all great news for the Chargers, though. Last week, they were heavy 9.5-point favorites on the NFL betting line against the Carolina Panthers.
Though football betting fans with San Diego on their ticket never had a chance to cover the spread, the Chargers have to be kicking themselves for how they lost the game. After taking a 24-19 lead with 2:27 remaining, the Panthers marched down the field, and capped the drive with a 14-yard touchdown strike from QB Jake Delhomme as time expired to give Carolina the shocking 26-24 victory.
The news got worse this week, as All-Pro LB Shawne Merriman elected on having knee surgery that will keep him out for the rest of the season. The Broncos were far more impressive in Week 1. As 3-point favorites per the closing football betting line, NFL betting followers that backed the Broncos came away very happy with their 41-14 victory over the hated Oakland Raiders.
QB Jay Cutler is clearly on the verge of becoming a superstar in the NFL. On Monday night, he completed 16-of-24 passes for 299 yards and two touchdowns. Look for another big game from rookie WR Eddie Royal this week who burst onto the professional scene with nine catches for 146 yards and a TD last week.
Oddsmakers set the Chargers at -3, but since the Merriman injury, the line has dropped as low as a pick ‘em at some shops. The ‘total’ now sits at 45.5. Consider putting the ‘over’ on your football betting card this weekend as San Diego has gone 11-3-2 towards the ‘over’ in their L/16 road games, while Denver is 11-1-1 towards the ‘over’ in their L/12 home games.
