Even though Peyton Manning and the Broncos are 0-2 both straight-up and against the spread on road this season, that hasn’t stopped a big percentage of the LVH SuperContest contestants from backing Denver (+1.5) in their Monday night showdown at San Diego.
The Broncos are 2-8-2 ATS in their last 12 games against the Chargers.
Out of 742 Week 6 entries, 227 contestants (30.59%) selected the Broncos, while 225 (30.32%) backed the 49ers and Lions. The full breakdown is listed below.
And despite the fact that home dogs are currently hitting at 63.33%, 195 contestants took the Patriots (-3.5) at Seattle this week against a Seahawks team that is 2-0 ATS in the home underdog role this season.
Our picks for the season are currently a lackluster 10-15, so take these for what they’re worth (not a lot):
TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS (-3.5) vs. Kansas City Chiefs
DETROIT LIONS (+4.5) at Philadelphia Eagles
SAN DIEGO CHARGERS (-1.5) vs. Denver Broncos
SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS (-4.5) vs. New York Giants
SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (+3.5) vs. New England Patriots
