Week 6 of the 2022 NFL season includes a Monday Night Football showdown between two AFC West rivals as the Denver Broncos pay a visit to the Los Angeles Chargers. The Broncos' already underwhelming season reached a new low last week when they lost 12-9 in overtime to the Indianapolis Colts during one of the uglier Thursday Night Football games in recent memory.

The Chargers, on the other hand, won their second game in a row thanks to a 30-28 victory against the Cleveland Browns. Running back Austin Ekeler was the star performer of the day, racking up 199 total yards from scrimmage and a pair of touchdowns.

Broncos vs Chargers Prediction & Pick

Before the season began, football fans would be salivating at the thought of this matchup. Instead, the Broncos have completely failed to meet expectations, mostly due to an offense that's only putting out 15 points per game (31st in NFL). At least their defense has played well, giving up only 16 points per game (fourth-fewest).

The Chargers haven't been perfect by any means, especially on defense where they're allowing the third-most points in the NFL. Unlike Denver, however, LA's offense has been as good as advertised, ranking ninth in scoring,

With Russell Wilson's shoulder reportedly banged up, it'll be even tougher for the Broncos to keep up with Justin Herbert and the Chargers' offense. Give me Los Angeles winning without much issue.

Final Score Prediction: Chargers: 30 | Broncos: 17

Broncos vs Chargers Best Bet

Even though the offensive potential is there on paper, fans shouldn't expect a high-scoring game. In fact, the last seven Broncos-Chargers clashes have produced an average total of 41.7 points, finishing under 45.5 in six of those contests.

Unless Denver miraculously solves all of its offensive issues in the next few days, fans should expect a total below 45.5 points on Monday.

Bet: Under 45.5 Points (-110)
