The NFL cooks up an exciting matchup to cap off yet another epic week of football action, as the sturdy Los Angeles Chargers (3-2 straight up, 4-1 against the spread) host divisional rival Denver Broncos (2-3 SU, 1-4 ATS) in an all-AFC West clash in Week 6 on Monday Night Football.
Here are a few Broncos vs. Chargers player props to target in this divisional tilt.
Denver Broncos vs. Los Angeles Chargers Odds
Los Angeles – priced between -210 and -240 on the moneyline as of Monday morning – is a 4.5-point favorite against the seesawing Broncos (between +176 and +190), who look to avoid going to 2-4 on the season.
Denver and LA have split wins in each of the past two seasons, so bettors can look forward to a historically competitive matchup that hasn’t favored either team.

Player Props, TD Scorer Bets for MNF Week 6
Russell Wilson Over 13.5 Rushing Yards (-115, DraftKings)
It’s not a coincidence that Wilson has run for 17-plus yards in each of his past three games after totaling just five yards in the first two games combined.

The Mile High City quarterback enters what figures to be a favorable matchup from a rushing standpoint Monday night. Los Angeles surrenders an average of 130.4 yards on the ground per contest and was gashed to the tune of 32 yards by Jacoby Brissett of the Browns just last week.
Austin Ekeler Over 59.5 Rushing Yards (-113, FanDuel)
Ekeler is coming off his best outing as a rusher – 173 yards against the Cleveland Browns in Week 5.
Now, he hadn’t topped 60 yards on the ground in any of his first four contests, but the matchup is quite favorable. Denver has allowed a 60-plus-yard rusher in each game this season. The most recent example of that was 62 to Indianapolis Colts’ Deon Jackson, who had made his very first NFL start.
Mike Williams Under 70.5 Receiving Yards (-115, PointsBet)
Very few players fit the “boom or bust” narrative better than Mike Williams. In five games this season, the Chargers’ wideout has either amassed 113-plus yards (three times) or been held to 15 yards or fewer (twice).
Williams has enjoyed his time with fellow Chargers receiver Keenan Allen out of the lineup, but he’ll also have to enjoy getting shadowed by second-year stud corner Patrick Surtain II, who held Los Angeles’ two best receivers to just two catches on four targets for 21 yards combined.
The Broncos pass defense is one of the best in the league, allowing the third-fewest yards through the air per game (176.6) and the second-fewest yards per pass attempt (5.2). Those numbers don’t bode well at all for a big-play receiver like Williams.
