Denver at San Diego Week 14 Free ATS Pick
The Bills tore up the Broncos secondary for 310 passing yards giving us the opinion that the Chargers may have the same type of success against their defense. If that’s the case look for this game to remain close throughout and even if San Diego lets this game get away from them the backdoor cover should be available.
Take the San Diego Chargers +4
