For as much roster turnover and parity that there is in the NFL, the San Diego Chargers seem to be the same team every year. A bad defense with far too much reliance on Phillip Rivers at quarterback. The players may change, but they remain the same disappointing team in the lightning bolt helmets.
They’ll go against the Denver Broncos tonight who are also sort of the same team. As in the same team that won the Super Bowl last year. They won with a Hall of Fame quarterback in Peyton Manning doing all of the little things right and not much more. He retired and they replaced him with Trevor Siemian who hasn’t skipped a beat and has kept things rolling.
For those looking for a narrative, the Broncos will be wihtout coach Gary Kubiak tonight who is recovering from a complex migraine. Typically teams tend to rally around things like this and “win one for the coach” by coming in ready to play. With a 4-1 team taking on a 1-4 team, that might actually be a big help.
NFL Betting Tips:
This week’s game seems like a pretty easy one. The Broncos are a much better team all around and today they have something to play for. On top of that, they lost to a mediocre team last week in Atlanta so they should be taking extra steps to get back on the winning track this week. The Chargers are a mess and things shouldn’t get much better tonight. Broncos -3

MLB Betting Tips:
It’s a busy night tonight as we also have the big game five in the National League Division series between the Dodgers and Nationals. This has been a back and forth series thus far and tonight should be a special one. Nationals’ ace Max Scherzer takes the mound against the Dodgers’ Rich Hill. Both of these great pitchers ended up giving up four runs in their first playoff start so neither is coming into this one in great form, but also both are probably a little extra motivated for this one. One thing to keep in mind is that Max Scherzer is on full rest while Rich Hill is on short rest.
Make no mistake though, this one is all about the starting pitching match-up. While Max Scherzer is a threat to strike out 15 or more every time he’s out there, he’s also a lot more likely to give up the long ball as he saw 33 leave in 35 games. Compare this to Rich Hill (who also has a far lower ERA) who only gave up 5 homeruns in 21 starts this year.
The Dodgers have been one of the best hitting teams down the stretch and it’s hard to see them backing down from Scherzer. While Rich Hill was making his first postseason appearance of his career last time, you have to think that nerves played a part in his struggles. Those nerves should be gone from this one and the Dodgers star should be back to business in this one. The Dodgers +140 should advance here.
