Chargers vs Broncos Final NFL Betting Analysis

The Chargers don’t have it this season. But, they should play well enough for a win and cover on Sunday. It will have much to do with the Broncos’ offense.

Denver quarterback Brandon Allen might be the future. He plays hard and doesn’t make a ton of mistakes. Allen has trouble reading defenses, though. He doesn’t know what to do after his first read. Many of Allens’ issues are because of experience. He doesn’t have much.

The Chargers’ defense will exploit Allen’s lack of experience. The Denver quarterback completed 60% of his passes in his first start. In his second start, he completed 43.8%. Versus Buffalo in his last start, he completed 40%. The Bolts should dominate. They win and cover.
