Another week goes by and another week of poor picks, this week stumbling to a 9-7 and 7-9 record. Yearly record is 128-80 SU and 103-105 ATS. Lets see if we can get a respectable finish to the season and salvage something positive…
BRONCOS (-10.5) over Chargers- Of all the teams vying for the last wildcard spot in the AFC, the Chargers are probably the only team that could possibly do anything in the playoffs. Philip Rivers is playing well and whenever you have that level of QB competing you will always have a chance in the playoffs. The problem for San Diego is the still have yet to learn how to not lose games which was a trait that former coach Norv Turner never could shake as the Chargers wasted away top talent seasons. The other issue is that they face the Broncos twice in a season.
The Broncos offense is about as good as things get in the NFL. Peyton Manning is sharp and he had an incredible set of weapons at his disposal to expose a secondary, especially a bad one like San Diego’s. Their outside guys are big play threats every time they go deep. Few teams have been able to slow this offense down and I can’t picture San Diego being the one to do it. The game will be a shootout but Peyton will be too much for Rivers in this one. Broncos 39 Chargers 28
