Chargers Odds to Win Super Bowl

Los Angeles Chargers NFL Betting

Following a 12-4 record in the 2018 season that was the equal of the Kansas City Chiefs, the Los Angeles Chargers entered the 2019 campaign with “super” expectations. Unfortunately, the Chargers stumbled out of the gate with a 2-5 start en route to a 5-11 straight up record. Adding insult to injury was the fact that it turned out to be Philip Rivers last season as Chargers quarterback. Los Angeles finished in the red at 4-9-3 against the spread, and 7-9 under the total. Overall, the Chargers ranked 10th for total offense but 21st for scoring while ranking sixth for total defense and 14th for points against. A big weakness of the team was a rushing attack that ranked 28th in the NFL and put too much of the burden on Rivers.

Head coach Anthony Lynn has gone from a hero to zero in just one year and begins 2020 with one of the hottest seats in all of pro football.

Of equal concern is the lack of traction that the Chargers are getting since moving back to the Los Angeles area, where they were never wanted in the first place. New state of the art SoFi Stadium is likely to be invaded by a majority of visiting fans each game.

One way or the other a new quarterback era will begin with the Chargers. Justin Herbert was the sixth overall pick of the 2020 NFL draft and is considered to have the most natural raw material ability of any quarterback prospect.

Tyrod Taylor is a nine-year NFL journeyman that backed up Rivers last year and is slated to start, though whether he is still the number one quarterback at season’s end is debatable.

Wide receiver Kennan Allen and tight end Hunter Henry are elite targets for whoever ends up under center.

Running back Melvin Gordon dropped noticeably in production last season and has also departed. Austin Ekeler is slated as new top back.

Left tackle Bryan Bulaga is the one exception to a mediocre offensive line.

The defense has many stalwarts such as left end Joey Bosa, right end Melvin Ingram, left corner Chris Harris, safeties Desmond King and Derwin James, along with corner Casey Hayward. With such talent the defense may be the unit that can lead LA hack into contention.
