Chargers open as 6-point favorites over Broncos at home

Should the Chargers even be favored this week?

NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at Houston Texans Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

After a truly devastating loss to the Houston Texans on the road, the Chargers have opened up as six-point favorites over the Denver Broncos at home in SoFi Stadium this Sunday, according to DraftKings Sportsbook. The over/under is currently set at 45.5.

The Broncos will be coming off a 17-13 loss to the Raiders who are now tied with the Chargers record-wise at 8-7 while the Broncos fell to 7-8.

With two games remaining, the Chargers need to win out to maintain their shot at a place in the postseason. Even if they win out, however, they’ll need some other teams to lose at least one of their last two, one of which is the Ravens who just had themselves torn a new one by Joe Burrow (525 passing yards, four touchdowns) and the Bengals.

The Broncos are expected to start Drew Lock at quarterback as Teddy Bridgewater is still recovering from a concussion.
