Broncos vs. Chargers Pick

NFL Week 6 Picks: Will Broncos vs. Chargers be low-scoring for bettors?

Will Thursday night’s matchup between the Broncos and Chargers be low-scoring when the two division rivals clash at 8:25PM ET?

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Broncos are 3-point road favorites versus the Chargers after opening as a 2.5-point favorite. As for the total, the number opened at 45.5 and that’s where it currently sits. Roughly 70% of public bettors are backing the Broncos to cover the spread.

The Broncos suffered their first loss of the season last Sunday, falling 23-16 to the Falcons as a 3.5-point home favorite. Rookie Paxton Lynch made his first start as a pro, completing 23-of-35 pass attempts for 223 yards with one touchdown and one interception. He was constantly harassed by Vic Beasley and the Atlanta pass-rush, which sacked the signal-caller six times in the game. Denver is now 4-1 straight up and 4-1 against the spread.

The Chargers keep inventing new ways to lose. After blowing a late fourth-quarter lead in a 35-34 loss to the Saints two weeks ago, San Diego botched a field goal attempt due to a bad hold in the closing minutes in a 34-31 loss at Oakland last Sunday. The Chargers are now 1-4 straight up but are 3-2 against the spread, covering as a 6.5-point underdog at Kansas City in Week 1, as a 3-point home favorite versus the Jaguars in Week 2, and as a 3.5-point road underdog last week in Oakland.
