Los Angeles Chargers NFL Betting

The Anthony Lynn era is over for the Los Angeles Chargers after a 7-9 season in 2020 in which LA missed the playoffs for the second consecutive season. Brandon Staley arrives from down the hall of SoFi Stadium as the new head coach. Staley was the Los Angeles Rams defensive coordinator last season. The 2020 campaign was not a total loss for the Chargers. That is because rookie quarterback Justin Herbert was so good that he was named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year. Herbert proved to be a franchise quarterback that the Chargers can build around. Some gamblers see the Chargers as a potentially strong bargain and dark horse. LA’s metrics were not that bad, and gamblers appreciated their profitability of going 9-7 against the spread.

In 2020 the Chargers ranked 9th in the NFL for total offense and 10th for total defense. Thus, Staley inherits a capable team as a rookie NFL head coach. Just six years ago, Staley was the defensive coordinator for John Carroll University. He got his break when the Chicago Bears hired him as an outside linebacker coach in 2017. His meteoric rise was helped by his association with former Bears defensive coordinator and current Denver Broncos head coach Vic Fangio. Staley did earn rave reviews for his dramatic improvement of the Rams defense last year.

Justin Herbert threw for 4336 yards, a 31/10 TD/INT ratio, and a 98.3 QB rating as a rookie in 2020. Herbert blew away all expectations in taking over the starting QB role.

Wide receiver Keenan Allen was Herbert’s top target. Allen caught 100 passes for 992 yards and eight touchdowns. It was the third time in the past four seasons that Allen caught 100 or more passes. The lone exception was a 97-catch campaign.

LA uses a running back by committee approach, but sixth round draft pick Larry Roundtree of Missouri could prove to be a steal. Georgia tight end Tre McKitty was a highly acclaimed 97th overall pick. First round pick Rashawn Slater of Northwestern was picked to protect Herbert for years to come.

Defensive end Joey Bosa dominated the defense with 7.5 sacks and 14.5 tackles for loss.

The Los Angeles Chargers were born in 1960 as charter members of the American Football League but operated in San Diego from 1961 through 2016. Stadium issues led them back to Los Angeles, where the new SoFi Stadium was looking for a co-tenant with the Rams.
