The NFL season is flying by, as we prepare to close Week 6 with the 4.5-point favorite Los Angeles Chargers hosting the rival Denver Broncos on Monday Night Football. It’s a matchup of preseason Super Bowl favorites, with the teams heading in opposite directions at this point in the season.
According to DraftKings Sportsbook, the over/under currently sits at 45.5-points. The Chargers are likely good for more than half of that total; they’ve scored at least 30 points during their current two game win streak. Over the course of the 2022 campaign, they’ve averaged 24-points per game.
Unfortunately for Denver fans, putting points on the board has been a rarity for the Broncos, who entered Week 6 31st in scoring, averaging 15 points per game.
With that being said, the Russell Wilson led Broncos have been consistent at hitting the under, with a mark of 1-4 for their over/under season total. They boast the same 1-4 record against the spread.
The Chargers have covered the spread in four of their five games this season, and have gone 3-2 on the over. L.A. will look to close the gap on the Kansas City Chiefs, while increasing their distance from the Broncos in the AFC West, all in one game.
