Football betting in the AFC West is highlighted in Week 2 action as the Denver Broncos host the San Diego Chargers.
Many NFL betting experts believe the Chargers are Super Bowl contenders but winning in Denver will not be easy.
Football betting stats show that San Diego is led by superstar running back LaDainian Tomlinson and improving quarterback Philip Rivers. Tomlinson led an offense that ranked 7th in the league last season in rushing according to football betting stats. The Chargers will look to establish early dominance in the division if they can get a road win in Denver.
Denver is hoping that quarterback Jay Cutler rebounds from a poor 2007 season. The offense was ranked 11th overall in the league according to football betting stats but Cutler made far too many mistakes. Cutler was treated for Diabetes in the off-season and has looked much better this year. Wide receiver Brandon Marshall had his suspension reduced and will play in his first game this season against the Chargers. He could be a major factor in the football betting outcome of this game. On the other side of the ball, Denver was 19th in the NFL in total defense a year ago according to football betting stats and those numbers must improve if the Broncos are to make the playoffs this season.
Last season the Broncos were humiliated at home against San Diego so revenge could be a factor in this game according to football betting experts. Last year the Chargers won 41-3 at Denver according to football betting numbers. They also won 23-3 at home according to NFL betting stats. San Diego has actually won the last two times at Denver where previously they had very little success. San Diego is 6-2-1 in their last 9 divisional road games according to football betting numbers. Denver is 2-0 the last two times they have been an underdog at home according to NFL betting stats. The Broncos are 3-5-1 in their last 9 division home games according to football betting stats. 12 of the last 18 San Diego road games in the division have gone under the football betting total. The over is 15-10-1 in the last 26 Denver home games according to NFL betting stats.
