Los Angeles Chargers Odds, Bet Types, and Team History

The Los Angeles Chargers missed the NFL playoffs and finished below .500 for a second consecutive season in 2020. A four-game winning streak put the Chargers at 7-9 for the year, third place in the AFC West. While the strong finish could generate momentum heading into the new season, it wasn’t enough to prevent major turnover within the coaching staff. Former Rams defensive coordinator Brandon Staley is running the show as a first-time NFL head coach and will look to lead the Chargers back to the top of the division.

That adventure begins with QB Justin Herbert . The second-year pro was thrown into his first NFL action after a freak injury to Tyrod Taylor just moments before a game. Herbert’s debut was a trial by fire. You could make the same argument about his rookie season. But he went 6-9 as a starter and won Offensive Rookie of the Year after throwing for 4,336 yards, 31 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

Herbert was also sacked 32 times, a volume of hits most teams would agree is too high for a franchise player. General manager Tom Telesco went out and acquired two guards in Oday Aboushi and Matt Feiler while also picking up first-team All-Pro center Corey Linsley to anchor the group. That should also benefit a rushing attack that ranked 18th last year in yards per game. So will having a full season of Austin Ekeler , who had 933 scrimmage yards in 10 games last year.

Keenan Allen is back to headline the receivers after notching his third season of 100 catches. Allen’s eight touchdowns matched a career-high, though his 992 yards were his fewest over a full season since 2014. Former first-round pick Mike Williams played 11 games in 2020, picking up 756 yards and five scores on 48 catches. Jalen Guyton emerged in his first full season, catching 28 passes for 511 yards and three scores. Guyton averaged 18.3 yards per catch.

Staley’s defense with the Rams was among the league’s best last year. Replicating Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey is much easier said than done, but his personnel with the Chargers could impress if healthy. Joey Bosa played hurt much of the last season and still posted a team-high 7.5 sacks. Derwin James missed most of 2019 and all of 2020 to injury but has All-Pro potential when healthy. Roster moves should also open up more snaps to Jerry Tillery and Uchenna Nwosu , who combined for 7.5 sacks and each had double-digit QB hits last year.

The Chargers open the 2021 NFL season against the Washington Commanders.

Chargers Team Rivals

The Chargers placed third in the AFC West in 2020. They went .500 against the division, defeating AFC West opponents in Weeks 15-17 as part of a season-ending, four-game winning streak. That momentum could help in 2021 under a new coaching staff as the franchise attempts to win its first division title in Los Angeles. The Chargers last won the West in 2009.

Since then, two division rivals have won Super Bowl titles. The Kansas City Chiefs are the reigning two-time AFC champions, going 14-2 in the 2020 regular season after winning Super Bowl LIV the year prior. The Las Vegas Raiders placed second at 8-8, though they’ve made just one playoff appearance in the past 18 seasons. The Denver Broncos finished fourth at 5-11. Denver won Super Bowl 50 at the end of the 2015 season but hasn’t been back to the postseason since.

Betting on the Los Angeles Chargers

Los Angeles Chargers Point Spreads

Betting point spreads are wagers based on the expectation that a team will win or lose by a certain number of points. The Chargers were among the league’s better teams when it came to covering in 2020, owning a 9-7 record against the spread. Los Angeles’ seven wins were by an average margin of 6.4 points while its nine losses came at an average of 9.7 points — though it’s worth noting a 45-point loss to New England inflates that margin of defeat quite a bit.

Here’s an example:

  • Raiders +2.5 (+110)
  • Chargers -2.5 (-110)

In this situation, the Raiders are 2.5 point underdogs against the Chargers. If Los Angeles wins the game by three or more points, a $100 wager on the Chargers would come with a payout of $90.91. If Las Vegas won the game outright or lost by two points or less, the same $100 wager would net $110 plus the original $100 for a total of $210.

FAQ: Everything you need to know about point spreads

Los Angeles Chargers Over/Unders aka Chargers Totals

Over/under, also called point total, is a wager placed on the combined scoring of a single game. Bookmakers come up with a number and you can either bet the over or — you guessed it — the under. Here’s how it works:

Let's say th Chiefs play the Chargers and the over/under is set at 61 points. A wager on the over would require Kansas City and Los Angeles to score 62 total points or more to win. Betting the under is an expectation that the two teams would score 60 or fewer points. It's also possible for the bet to push, which would happen if the game finished with exactly 61 points scored.

In 2020, Los Angeles averaged 24 points per game and allowed 26.6 points. The Chargers had the seventh-best record against the over, which they hit in 56.2 percent of their games last year.

FAQ: Betting the point total, explained | What is a push?

Chargers Moneylines

The moneyline is as straightforward as it gets when it comes to betting. The only thing to do here is pick the winner. Check out this example:

  • Chargers -120
  • Broncos +260

The minus (-) and plus (+) signs distinguish the favorite from the underdog, making Los Angeles the favorite in this scenario. Odds can be understood more clearly if you think in terms of $10 or $100 increments. A wager on the Chargers odds would mean every $12 bet nets $10. And it's the opposite for underdogs: Here the Broncos moneyline was set at +260, meaning a $10 wager would profit $26.

Moneylines are also commonly used when making parlays, which are multiple bets tied into one. Let’s say you bet the Chargers moneyline and a -2.5 point spread, Los Angeles would need to win by three points or more for that bet to be successful. The risk is greater, but so is the reward with increased odds. You can offset some of this by taking advantage of offers like the BetMGM Welcome Bonus. Use our Odds Calculator to calculate any bet amount or conversion.

Los Angeles Chargers Props

Player props are wagers on a single player, and they're tied to a single stat found in the box score for a game or even the whole season. These are among the most fun to bet on, especially if you're already playing fantasy football and like the player-specific focus it offers. Check out a hypothetical example below:

  • Justin Herbert 2021 passing yards: 4,250.5

Let’s break it down a bit. Herbert averaged 289.1 passing yards per game in 2020, the fourth-highest total in the NFL. We’ll assume that number drops a bit to 275. If Herbert sustained that pace over 16 games, he’d be up to 4,400 yards and be well over his projected mark. Remember, the NFL added an extra regular season game in 2021. Herbert started from Week 2 on as a rookie and it’s safe to assume the Chargers plan to start him all throughout 2021. If he played every game, Herbert would finish with 4,675 yards and crush this situational prop.

Chargers Futures

Futures are somewhat similar to prop bets in the way that both are monitored over the course of a season. Except most future bets are focused on end of season success. Examples of futures are:

  • Los Angeles Chargers odds to win the AFC West
  • Los Angeles Chargers odds to win the AFC
  • Los Angeles Chargers odds to win the Super Bowl
  • Justin Herbert’s odds to win Offensive Player of the Year
  • Joey Bosa’s odds to win Defensive Player of the Year

If you’re confident that the Chargers late-season success in 2020 can translate to a full season in 2021 or that Herbert is going to be the best quarterback in the NFL, this is the place to be. For a full list of NFL futures, click or tap here.
