Week 12 NFL Betting: Denver Broncos vs. San Diego Chargers Odds, Prediction, and Pick

Denver Broncos

Tim Tebow and crew are on the road in this game, and they’ll be looking to build on their three game winning streak with Tebow running the show.  The Broncos have been able to get to 5-5 overall, and are serious contenders to potentially win the AFC West, as they are only one game behind the Oakland Raiders currently.  This week though they’ll have a tough divisional match-up against the San Diego Chargers.  The Chargers have struggled a lot after starting off strong, and they have now lost five games in a row to this point.  Fortunately for them, they’ll be at home this week, but they will need to win this game in order to stay in contention to possibly win the AFC West, especially with the way that the Raiders and Broncos are playing lately.

The Broncos are of course led by Tebow and the new offense that John Fox has set up in order to make Tebow’s life easier.  He’s played incredibly well and avoided turnovers, which has really been the largest reason as to why this team is on the winning streak that they’re on right now.  On the other side of things, the Chargers up and down play has been caused by the good, then bad play by quarterback Philip Rivers.  Rivers is either throwing impressive touchdowns, or awful interceptions.  In order to win this game though, he’ll need to be on top of his game and protect the ball.  As we said, this game will be played in San Diego, and it will kick off at 4:15pm EST.

This game will be a great betting match-up for all of you NFL bettors out there, and we love this game and our pick!

Free Prediction

You can’t look past the Tim Tebow factor here.  He has been strong since taking over the starting job this season, and even when he’s not passing the ball well; the defense, and his ability to run the ball get the job done for the Broncos.  Many people seem to overlook the fact that the Chargers just have not looked like a good team to this point either, and they can’t seem to protect the ball either.  In order for the Chargers to win this game they will need to play turnover free football and be able to stop Tebow’s ability to run the ball well.  I don’t think the Chargers have what it takes this year, and I think that the Broncos get over .500 with a win on Sunday.

Prediction:  Denver Broncos- 27 San Diego Chargers- 24

Free Pick

I’m shocked that the Chargers are THIS heavy of a favorite.  I could see them being a small favorite at home, but the Broncos have just looked much better than the Chargers since Tebow took over.  I think that the Broncos are not only going to cover the spread of +6, but that they will also get the win.  I’ll be betting on the Broncos +6, and if you want an extra bonus pick, consider hopping on the Broncos to win outright at +220!

Pick:  Denver Broncos +6
