The Denver Broncos will look to defeat the San Diego Chargers on the road with Tim Tebow at the helm. However, they are seven-point underdogs against Chargers, who are 0-5 over the last fives games.
The Denver Broncos just continue to win with Tim Tebow at the helm of the offense, but how long can it last? The San Diego Chargers will put Tebow and the Broncos to the test on Sunday, hoping to dislodge Denver from its sole possession of second place in the AFC West. The Chargers opened the game as seven-point home favorites, according to Odds Shark. The line has fallen to six points at places, but the odds makers still see persons preferring the Chargers to end its current five-game losing streak.
But one can't really factor in Tebow Time when setting odds and lines for games that involve the Broncos. The over/under for this game stated at 44-1/2 points but has fallen to 41-1/2 and 42 points. Certainly Tebow could help the Broncos with a strong all-around performance, but he'll need a healthy Willis McGahee to help him do that, as we saw against the Oakland Raiders. Otherwise, this could be a low-scoring game if Tebow is off his game (until the final minutes of play) and the defense is solid against Philip Rivers.
