NFL betting odds handicappers have seen the Denver Broncos collapse into one of the worst teams in pro football and an unappealing commodity with the NFL betting lines.
The Denver Broncos will host the San Diego Chargers on Sunday with a telecast on CBS set to start at 4:20 PM ET. Sports-Gambling opened with San Diego as a 3.5 point favorite and with a total of 47.5. San Diego scored an easy 35-14 home payout over Denver on November 22. The exciting news about this otherwise meaningless game is that Tim Tebow will start at QB for Denver after a big win last week.
Denver has a football betting record of 4-11 straight up and 5-10 against the spread with 10 of their games going over the total. Denver is coming off an exciting 24-23 home win over Houston in which Tebow passed for 308 yards and a TD while rushing for 27 more yards with another TD.
Denver fans love Tebow and want him in the lineup next year as the full time starter. Denver’s defense ranks dead last for points allowed. Brandon Lloyd has been a productive receiver with 1375 yards.
San Diego has a football gambling record of 8-7 straight up and against the spread with an even 7-7-1 split on totals. The Chargers lost last week at lowly Cincinnati 34-20 to have their playoff hopes officially killed off for good as they could not overcome another slow start in which they last 5 of their first 7 games while the upstart Kansas City Chiefs took the AFC West instead.
San Diego ranks 2nd in total offense and 1st in total defense but special teams breakdowns coupled with the bad start has them out of the money as once again fans are reminded why coach Norv Turner was fired from two previous head coaching gigs before coming to San Diego where he has never gotten the Chargers to play with consistency.
QB Philip Rivers has a 103.9 QB rating with a 30/12 TD/INT ratio and 4397 yards along with an 8.7 yards per attempt average to rank as one of the top assets with the NFL betting odds.
