Peyton Manning is beginning to find his groove, while Philip Rivers is still trying to figure out how they lost in New Orleans. This week the two quarterbacks square off under the bright lights of Monday Night Football. Let's take a closer look at why I like the Broncos to come out on top.
This is a game that the sportsbooks haven't wanted to mess with very much. The Chargers were favored by 2.5 in the Summer and also in the look ahead line last week. It reopened very briefly at -3 on Sunday night, but sharp money immediately pounced on Denver at the key number. That was a smart grab, because I don't think San Diego is the better team at the moment. The current number sits at -1.5 to -1 depending where you shop.
