Chargers at Broncos playoff odds: From the Divisional Round spread to Super Bowl odds

A host of odds surrounding Denver's playoff game this weekend and their Super Bowl chances, including my favorites.

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Despite the way the mainstream media is laying the San Diego love thick, the Denver Broncos are still heavy Vegas favorites this weekend among divisional games as they prepare to face the San Diego Chargers at home, according to So take a break from getting bombarded by nonstop love of Philip Rivers and let bettors'  money do the talking. Here are some of our favorite odds as we approach this weekend (then I dropped all of them below).

Three Favorite Odds

Broncos are heaviest favorites this weekend

It's a nice breath of fresh air, seeing some confidence in the Broncos after the MSM onslaught we mentioned before. Denver are nine-point favorites, the Seahawks eight, Patriots 7.5, and 49ers are favored three points on the road. But remember, Denver were the heaviest favorites last divisional round as well, and that didn't work out so well.

Manning, DT, and Moreno favorites for stat leaders

Can the Broncos extend some of their regular season records into postseason records? They have the favorite quarterback and wide receiver statistically, as well as the second-favorite running back.

Broncos are 2nd favorite to win Super Bowl

It's good to be the favorite, like Denver has most of the year. But now the Seahawks are the favorite, and we're perfectly fine with that.
