NFL football bettingThe Chargers vs Broncos betting odds this weekend have yet to be posted because of the injury to Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton, but the reality is that it may not matter too much if he plays. Online betting cappers have watched the wheels come off the Broncos bandwagon with three straight losses, while the Chargers have stormed back with four straight wins. These are two teams heading in opposite directions, and the Broncos will lose their grip on the AFC West this weekend.

Chargers vs Broncos betting odds maker breakdown: The Storyline
The Broncos had moved to 6-0 on October 19th after dumping the Chargers in San Diego, while the Chargers themselves fell to 2-3. Fast forward a month and the two teams are tied atop the AFC West.

The Broncos experienced a tough stretch with back-to-back losses to Baltimore and Pittsburgh, but a road loss in Washington was not expected. Now the train is off the tracks and, combined with an injury to quarterback Kyle Orton, the team is struggling.

For San Diego, the defense has woken up and the offense has kept rolling. Even LaDainian Tomlinson had a good game last week. Things appear to be back in order in the AFC West.

Chargers vs Broncos betting odds maker breakdown: Offense
The Chargers offense is rolling just as it has been all season long. Philip Rivers is very quietly playing like an MVP with 2476 passing yards, 16 touchdowns and just six interceptions. He has a touchdown to interception ratio of 13-3 over his last seven games. Meanwhile, the passing game has improved now that Chris Chambers isn’t using up a starting spot for the wideouts, and the running game is being more productive. This is one of the best units in the league.

For Denver, they have hit a wall. Kyle Orton made some nice throws to Brandon Marshall last week, but 105 of his passing yards came on two plays. He is still struggling to find consistency. Beyond that, he’s unlikely to play this week because of a heavily sprained ankle, which means Chris Simms will be back starting. He finished 3-of-13 against Washington. The Broncos don’t have much time to figure out what’s wrong as the Chargers come in on a hot streak.

Chargers vs Broncos betting odds maker breakdown: Defense
The Chargers defense started slow, allowing 27.7 points per game in the first five games of this season, but during the four-game winning streak, the Chargers have diminished that total to just 16.5 points. Linebacker Shawne Merriman is back to business as he’s notched four sacks in the last three games after having none in the first six. NFL betting fans know that this defense isn’t back to being dominant, but they’re again in the middle of the pack. That’s all the Chargers offense needs.

Meanwhile, what’s happened to the Broncos defense? The Broncos have been outscored 85-34 in their last three games and even the lousy Washington Redskins scored 27 against them. This is a defense that used to be physical but has seemingly lost their way. Beyond that, their confidence is shaken.

Chargers vs Broncos betting odds maker breakdown: Notable Injuries
The big injury of the week is the ankle of Kyle Orton. The sportsbook odds makers have kept the line off the board until the extent of his injury is known for certain. If he plays, the Broncos have a shot, but if he doesn’t, they might get blown out with Chris Simms at the helm.

Betting Edge: Chargers

Chargers vs Broncos betting breakdown: Outlook and Pick
These are two teams heading in opposite directions. Having won four straight, the Chargers are rolling while the Broncos have forgotten how to win after three straight losses. Beyond that, the Broncos may be without their starting quarterback. Take the Chargers to win and cover in this contest.
