Three things you should know before betting on Chargers-Broncos:

1. The Chargers have performed much better on the road than at home in recent months, going 5-1 both straight-up and against the spread over the past six games they’ve played outside of Southern California since the start of last December. That includes three divisional road games, with Los Angeles winning all three: at Las Vegas and at Kansas City late last season and with a 30-24 victory as a 7-point underdog at Kansas City this past September. The five victories among the six road games in that span were by an average margin of 6.6 points per game.

2. The Broncos haven’t exactly used home field to their advantage in recent months, going 2-6 straight-up and 3-5 against the spread at Empower Field at Mile High over the past calendar year. The Broncos are 4-7 straight-up and 3-8 against the spread in divisional home games over the past four calendar years. Each of Denver’s past four divisional home games have gone Over the total—an average of more than 60 total points were scored as each of the four games surpassed 57 total points.

3. All but one of the seven divisional road games the Chargers have played since the start of the 2019 season have gone Over the total. The lone exception was the aforementioned 30-24 victory at Kansas City, which would’ve been a push on the total of 55 had L.A. not missed the extra-point attempt after breaking a 24-24 tie with 32 seconds remaining. Four of the five November road games the Chargers have played since the start of the 2019 season have gone Over the total.
