Wagering on Los Angeles Chargers Super Bowl lines is going to be easy. The Los Angeles Chargers finished last season with a 5-11 record. Which, was the worst in the AFC West. Despite last season’s struggles, they feel they are on the right track and should have a shot of making the playoffs this season.
The Chargers averaged 21.1 points per game last season. However, the team felt they didn’t get quality play from the quarterback position and decided to part ways with long-time quarterback Philip Rivers. Rivers signed with the Indianapolis Colts in the offseason.
They also parted ways with running back Melvin Gordon. Gordon, who held out last season while seeking a contract extension.
Despite their losses, oddmakers gave the Chargers +3000 odds to win the Super Bowl, which is the second best in the division.
The Chargers named backup Tyrod Taylor their starter and drafted former Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert as their quarterback of the future. They also added Pro Bowler Trai Turner and Bryan Bulaga at tackle, two moves that should immediately improve the offensive line.

Defensively, the Chargers gave up 21.6 points per game last season. They added Chris Harris Jr. to the secondary, signed defensive tackle Linval Joseph. They also traded back into the first round of the draft to select former Oklahoma linebacker Kenneth Murray, who is expected to have an immediate impact.
Betting on the LA Chargers for Super Bowl 2021:
The Chargers made some impressive moves in the offseason, but with Taylor expected to be their transitional quarterback and Herbert not having any experience, their quarterback play won’t be very good this year. Their running game will also take a hit without Gordon in the backfield.
Los Angeles’ defense will be improved, but it won’t be enough to make a significant improvement for the team so expect them to end up in the AFC West cellar once again.
