The Denver Broncos (2-3) travel to San Diego for an AFC West showdown against the Chargers (3-2) on Monday Night Football in a game that is expected to be a high scoring yet close affair.

The Broncos are mere 1 1/2 point underdogs on Monday night, with the over/under set at 50 points, according to OddsShark.com. The Broncos are just 1-4 against the spread the past five road games, while the total has gone over in four of the last five games that Denver has played on the road.

The Broncos lost in Week 5, 31-21, against the New England Patriots, as yet another slow start doomed the team. The Broncos defense, despite struggling at times this season, has allowed just 215 yards per game passing and will present a tough test for a Chargers offense that has managed just 231 yards through the air per game this season.

Kickoff is set for 6:30 p.m. MT on Monday night.
