Here are my DraftKings Sportsbook picks for Broncos-Chargers.

Denver Broncos at Los Angeles Chargers

Broncos +4 -105

Monday’s spread has been moving in the opposite direction you’d expect based on the money being thrown at it. A week before this game — almost to the minute, as of writing — the Broncos were six-point underdogs. (Oh, to get that number now.) Since then, the spread has clearly shrunk to where it is now, dropping from 4.5 to an even four Monday morning.

But all the while, Denver has only gotten 23% of the bets on DraftKings Sportsbook. So, the Broncos are getting fewer bets as the underdog, yet the spread is shrinking. When you look at the handle, things start to make more sense. The sharps appear to be with Denver in this matchup, with Broncos ATS bets making up 33% of the handle despite making up a significantly smaller chunk of the percentage of bets.


Courtland Sutton over 66.5 receiving yards -125

For all the praise the Chargers’ secondary received coming into this season, they’ve allowed opposing wide receivers to do some work. Davante Adams, Zay Jones, Christian Kirk, Nico Collins and Amari Cooper each got over this number in their 2022 games vs. the Chargers. Of this bunch, Jones is the only slot receiver, which also bodes well for Sutton going into MNF.

And if this game turns into a gross one, Sutton has proven himself in that sort of setting. He’s gone over this number in four of five games this season, with Week 4 being the lone exception. As much as that loss vs. the Raiders was a rough game for the Broncos, it’s far from the grossest contest they’ve had this season.
