It's a battle for top spot in the AFC West Division when Denver hosts San Diego on Friday (AEST). 

The Chargers are enjoying their best start to a season in over a decade, and have become one of the biggest movers in the futures market. Off the back of quarterback Philip Rivers, who has 1,961 yards off 155 passes and 17 touchdowns for the season so far, San Diego have jumped from $34 outsiders to eighth favourites at . Running back Ryan Mathews has been waiting for another chance to come up against the Broncos, with the former All-American notching up 127 yards off 29 runs and a TD when the two faced-off at the end of last season, almost twice as many as his figures for this season so far.

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning achieved greatness last week, becoming the leading touchdown passer in NFL history. Off the back of this milestone, the Broncos continue to grow as favourites in the Super Bowl betting market, strengthening to after Monday. MVP contender Demaryius Thomas caught the record breaker, taking his tally to six touchdowns in seven games for the season. With this impressive stat, Thomas will be a popular bet with TattsBet customers for First Touchdown Scorer on Friday at . 

It's always a heated affair when these two go head-to-head and one the Broncos have dominated recently, winning five of the last seven meetings. It has been a long time between Super Bowl rings for the Broncos, having not won since 1998, and even longer for the Chargers, with their last victory coming more than 40 years ago. With Rivers and Manning in red-hot form, taking the overs 51.5 in this game will be a no brainer for punters.
