Los Angeles Chargers NFL Week 13 Betting Lines

Los Angeles Chargers NFL Betting

Currently, the Los Angeles Chargers are one game behind the Cincinnati Bengals and the New York Jets for a Wild Card berth in the AFC Playoffs. However, they have entrenched themselves as a gatekeeper team in the conference. The Chargers are 6-1 against teams that are below .500, and they are 0-4 against teams with a winning record. That will likely need to change if the team is going to make the postseason, but they will face another sub-.500 team in the Las Vegas Raiders this weekend.

On Sunday, December 4, 2022, the Los Angeles Chargers will head to the desert to take on the Las Vegas Raiders at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada. Kick off is scheduled for 4:25 p.m. ET on CBS.

Los Angeles Chargers Week 13 Matchup

Josh Jacobs could have a massive game against the Los Angeles Chargers this week. Jacobs is the NFL’s leading rusher with 1,159 yards, and he is averaging 5.4 YPC with nine rushing touchdowns. He is coming off a 220-yard performance against Seattle last week, and he is facing an even worse run defense in the Chargers. However, he is questionable to play after suffering a calf strain late in the game against the Seahawks.

That would lead to Derek Carr taking to the air more on Sunday. Carr is completing 63% of his passes for 2,730 yards with 18 touchdowns and seven interceptions on the year. The offensive line has done a good job keeping him upright, but the passing game hasn’t been that much better with the acquisition of Davante Adams. Carr’s old Fresno State buddy has had a nice season with 71 receptions for 999 yards and 10 touchdowns, but Hunter Renfrow and Darren Waller haven’t had anywhere near the same impact.

The Los Angeles Chargers have the worst run defense in the NFL. They are allowing 5.4 YPC and 151.4 YPG on the ground as four of their nine defensive linemen are on injured reserve. Khalil Mack has tried to be a difference maker, but linebackers Chris Rumph and Kyle Van Noy are small and have really struggled against big offensive linemen.

Additionally, the Chargers have had little success running the ball on their own. They rank 30th in YPC and YPG on the ground, putting a lot of pressure on their young quarterback. Justin Herbert has usually handled it well, and that has led to Austin Ekeler catching 80 balls as a receiver out of the backfield. Keenan Allen is finally healthy, but Mike Williams is questionable to play, and his absence would hurt this offense.

Las Vegas is allowing 25.1 PPG and 370.6 YPG. They have the second-worst red zone defense in the NFL, and their only quality pass rusher is Maxx Crosby. If the Chargers can contain him, Herbert should have plenty of time to make things happen.

Los Angeles Chargers Week 12 Recap

The Los Angeles Chargers looked like they would drop their third straight game last week against the Arizona Cardinals. They trailed for most of the game, so that’s why Brandon Staley decided to go for the jugular after Justin Herbert found Austin Ekeler in the end zone with 15 seconds left in the game to cut the score to 24-23. The Chargers converted the two-point conversion to escape with a 25-24 victory and moved to 6-5 in the process.

Herbert had another fine afternoon considering the Chargers were unable to run the ball against the Cardinals’ front seven. He completed 35 of 47 passes for 274 yards and three touchdowns, and he was the team’s leading rusher with four carries for 38 yards. The Chargers only had nine carries for 27 yards on the day aside from Herbert, so it was up to LA’s quarterback to make it happen in this one. DeAndre Carter was the leading receiver with seven receptions for 73 yards and a TD, while Ekeler caught 11 passes for 60 yards and a TD as a receiver out of the backfield.

Kyler Murray had one of his better days for the Cardinals this season, completing 18 of 29 passes for 191 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. Murray also ran the ball seven times for 56 yards and a TD. DeAndre Hopkins was the top receiver with four receptions for 87 yards and a TD, but the main man for the Cardinals’ offense was James Conner. He had 25 carries for 120 yards in his first 100-yard game with the team, and he caught three passes for 20 yards and a TD.

The Chargers play in the AFC West, considered the best division in pro football. Los Angeles has shared that same division with the Las Vegas Raiders, Kansas City Chiefs, and Denver Broncos since their founding in 1960. The Division boasts four of the best quarterbacks in football. Justin Herbert of the Chargers, Patrick Mahomes of the Chiefs, Russell Wilson of the Seahawks, and Derek Carr of the Raiders will be lighting up the stat sheets and scoreboards all season.

The Chargers will make their first prime time appearance in week two with a Prime Video game at the Kansas City Chiefs. This game will set the tone for the AFC West race. Another key AFC West game comes in week six when the Chargers will host the Denver Broncos on ESPN Monday Night Football.

NBC Sunday Night Football will feature the Chargers at the San Francisco 49ers in week 10. In Week 16, the Chargers are again on ESPN Monday Night Football at the Indianapolis Colts with AFC playoff position likely at stake.

And in Week 17, NBC Sunday Night Football will feature a Chargers “home” game against the Super Bowl champion Rams. Both teams share SoFi Stadium.

Founded in 1960 as charter members of the American Football League, the Los Angeles Chargers moved to San Diego in 1961. Barron Hilton, an heir to the famous hotel chain, was the original owner. He named the team the Chargers after his credit card company that was aligned to his hotels and restaurants. The early Chargers were the power of the American Football League. Their marquee man was Hall of Fame receiver Lance “Bambi” Alworth. Head coach Sid Gilman was a pioneer in passing game development. The Chargers played in the first two AFL championship games, losing both. Finally, they won the 1963 AFL championship. After losing the AFL championship game in the next two years, the Chargers went into a long period of darkness.

But head coach Don Coryell and quarterback Dan Fouts led a franchise resurgence in the early 1980s. Following that was another long period of losing. The Chargers made their only Super Bowl appearance in the 1995 season, losing to the 49ers.

From 2004 through 2018, the Chargers made the playoffs seven times. For most of those years, the quarterback was Philip Rivers, who could never get the Chargers to the Super Bowl.

Finally, after years of futility in trying to get a new stadium built, the Chargers returned to LA from San Diego in 2017.
