Los Angeles Chargers slight road favorites vs. Denver Broncos in Week 8

The Los Angeles Chargers (2-4) will pay the division-rival Denver Broncos (2-4) a visit in Week 8, as the two AFC West teams will square off at Empower Field at Mile High Sunday afternoon. Kickoff will be at 4:05 p.m. ET. Below, we take a look at the early Week 8 betting odds and lines at BetMGM Sportsbook.

The Chargers have looked promising with rookie QB Justin Herbert under center despite their unimpressive 2-4 record. They rank fourth in total yards per game but 21st in scoring, while the defense is only middle of the pack statistically. Los Angeles did just beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 39-29 in Week 7, so it's looking to start a two-game winning streak.

The Broncos snapped a two-game winning streak in Week 7 when they were crushed 43-16 by the rival Kansas City Chiefs in snowy conditions. The offense didn't take the expected step forward with QB Drew Lock back from injury, and the defense struggled to slow down the Chiefs on offense or special teams.
