ATS Pick : Sure the Bronco’s looked great in the second half, but that was against what we think was an overrated Titans team. This week they host division rival San Diego who they beat 28-20 earlier in the season in a game that the play was closer than the final score. The season series suggests a close game with the last six games decided by 9 or fewer points. The Chargers have lost 7 games this season but all 7 games were decided by fewer than this week’s posted point spread.
Look for the Chargers to come up big in this game and keep within the allotted spread.
