The Chargers put together the best comeback in Week 7, rallying from 17 points down to upset the Falcons in overtime 33-30 as a 4.5-point underdog. That was the Bolts' second straight win and they are now 3-0 against the spread in their last three games. Just two weeks ago, San Diego upset Denver 21-13 as a 3-point home underdog. The over has also cashed in three of the Chargers' last four games, although the one under that hit was against the Broncos.

After losing back-to-back games to the Falcons and Chargers, the Broncos got back in the win column on Monday night in a 27-9 victory over the Texans as an 8.5-point favorite. That victory lifted Denver's record to 5-2 on the year and the Broncos have covered in five of their last seven games as well. The under has cashed in four-straight Bronco games.

OUR PREDICTION: The under is 6-2 in the last eight meetings between these two teams and is 11-4-1 in the Broncos' last 16 home games. The under is also 4-1-1 in Denver's last six divisional games and is 5-2 in its last seven games coming off a win. Despite Philip Rivers and the Chargers' offensive success this season, Denver's defense should be more prepared for the underneath and man-beating routes that San Diego utilize to beat the Broncos two weeks ago. Look for this game to be relatively low-scoring.
