Chargers at Broncos odds: Denver home underdogs to division rival again this week

The Denver Broncos will host AFC West division foe Los Angeles Chargers in Week 8 as underdogs. Here is a breakdown of the betting odds.

The Denver Broncos (2-4) will look to get back into the win column at home against the Los Angeles Chargers (2-4) on Sunday. Rookie quarterback Justin Herbert is off to an incredible start to his career and has yet to be slowed down. He joined Patrick Mahomes as the only other quarterback to start a career with five-straight games of 250 yards or more in passing.

According to SportsBetting.com, the Broncos will host the Chargers in Week 8 as 3-point underdogs at home despite both teams being 2-4. The over/under is set at 44.5. This will be the second straight week Denver has been home underdogs to an AFC West foe. They failed to cover the spread last week in their 43-16 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Frankly, I lowkey hate this line. As I mentioned in the odds podcast update above, I think Drew Lock and the Broncos offense comes out much more focused and on point in this game. My score prediction of 31-27 includes a late push by the Chargers to make it close, but a win is a win. The Broncos win and cover here.

This team can be a bit unpredictable, though. I wouldn’t be surprised if they fall flat on their faces again, but the chatter out of the locker room seems to be more motivated anger than angry capitulation. Now would be the best time for them to rally back into the win column.
