Los Angeles Chargers Odds

Written by

The LA Chargers were one of the preseason darlings last year, but the hopes for a leap forward didn’t materialize. The NFL playoffs came and went with the team watching along with the rest of us. Heading into this season, there is once again a lot of buzz surrounding Los Angeles.

The Chargers are currently the sixth choice in the latest odds to win the Super Bowl. Los Angeles kicks off the season at home in Week 1 on Sunday, Sept. 11, with a visit from the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders. Here’s a closer look at the latest Chargers betting odds and lines for the 2022-2023 season.

Los Angeles Chargers odds: Spread, moneyline and over/under

Week 1 odds: Chargers open as home favorites over rival Raiders 

The Chargers were 9-8 last season, coming up just short in their quest for a postseason berth. They were a spot behind the 10-7 Raiders, who snagged a wild card spot in the AFC before falling to the Cincinnati Bengals in the opening round.

The latest futures odds have Los Angeles as the second-best team in the AFC West, behind the Kansas City Chiefs, while the Raiders are in last place.

  • Moneyline: The Chargers opened as -170 moneyline favorites to win. For last season’s two games, it was the Chargers on top by a score of 28-14 at home in Week 4, while the Raiders won on their turf in overtime by a score of 35-32 in Week 18. While division rivals may not need any additional motivation, the victory for Las Vegas sealed its postseason berth while dashing the hopes of Los Angeles.
  • Spread: The Chargers are 4-point home favorites for opening week. Las Vegas was 8-10 against the spread last season, while Los Angeles went 8-9.
  • Over/Under: For last year’s meetings, scoring was muted for the first game at 42 points, while the second one was a shootout with a final tally of 67. The current over/under of 52 points is one of the largest total lines for NFL Week 1.

Regular season win total

DraftKings Sportsbook: Over 10 (-130)Under 10 (+110)

The Chargers finished up last season at 9-8. DraftKings has moved the bar up a notch for this year. Based on the current odds, it looks like more money has been coming in on the team to exceed 10 wins.

Odds to win the AFC West

BetMGM Sportsbook: +250

While sportsbooks view the Chargers as contenders, the latest odds indicate that the Chiefs (+150) are still the team to beat in the AFC West. The Denver Broncos (+260) and Raiders (+600) will also have something to say about how the chase shakes out.

Odds to win the AFC

Caesars Sportsbook: +850

The Chargers are tied for third in odds to win the AFC with the Broncos. The Bills (+350) lead the way, followed by the Chiefs (+525). The Cleveland Browns (+1000) currently occupy the fifth spot on the board.

Justin Herbert NFL MVP odds

FanDuel Sportsbook: +1000

Herbert delivered some eye-popping numbers last season, throwing for 5,014 yards and 38 TDs. The potential is there for another leap forward in his third year as a pro. Josh Allen (+700) leads the 2023 NFL MVP odds at FanDuel.

Season-long player prop odds

DraftKings Sportsbook:

  • Most passing yards: Justin Herbert +550
  • Most rushing yards: Austin Ekeler +2500
  • Most receiving yards: Mike Williams +3000

Herbert is a top contender to lead the league in passing yards. He was second last year and could certainly kick it up a notch this season. Ekeler and Williams will get their share of yards, but they’re both further down the list of contenders in their categories.

Los Angeles Chargers news and notes

In March, the Chargers took a big step toward bolstering their defense by trading a pair of draft picks to the Chicago Bears for Khalil Mack. During free agency, the club’s signing included J.C. Jackson and Sebastian Joseph, while losses included Uchenna Nwosu and Justin Jones. Los Angeles also re-signed star wideout Mike Williams to an extension.

At the NFL draft, the club selected OG Zion Johnson with the 17th pick in round one. The team’s second-round pick went to the Bears as part of the trade for Mack, while S J.T. Woods was the selection in round three. All told, the enthusiasm surrounding the Chargers may be justified, as the defense received an upgrade and the talent level on offense remains high.
