Super Bowl Path: Los Angeles Chargers Future Betting Odds

Are the Chargers Ready to Take the Next Step After Just Missing the Playoffs?

Additions of Khalil Mack and J.C. Jackson Could be What the Chargers Need

The Los Angeles Chargers have used the NFL draft to add defensive end Joey Bosa, receiver Mike Williams, safety Derwin James, quarterback Justin Herbert and offensive tackle Rashawn Slater in recent years. Stay with us for a closer look at the Los Angeles Chargers future betting odds.

In the offseason, they acquired pass-rushing linebacker Khalil Mack and interception-hungry cornerback J.C. Jackson and that could help improve a defense that gave up more points than 29 of the other 31 teams in the NFL a season ago.

After hitting pay dirt with the selection of Slater, Los Angeles went back to the offensive line to select physical Zion Johnson. If he plays anywhere near as well as Slater did as a rookie, the Chargers’ dynamic offense could be even better in 2022.

The Chargers came into the 2021 season with an expected win total of nine and hit that mark. Unfortunately, that left Los Angeles a win shy of a playoff spot. Two overtime losses and a 4-5 record in one-score games proved to be too much to overcome. The Chargers were at +105 to go over nine wins in 2021. Now, Los Angeles has -105 odds to go over 10.5 wins. How do these numbers change the current Los Angeles Chargers future betting odds?

Los Angeles Chargers Future Betting Odds to Make the Playoffs

With Justin Herbert at quarterback, Austin Ekeler at running back, and the duo of Keenan Allen and Mike Williams at receiver, it is no wonder this was one of the most productive offensive teams in the NFL a season ago. The issues came on the other side of the ball and the addition of Khalil Mack and J.C. Jackson were just two of the moves to improve a leaky defense.

Herbert Ready for Another Huge Year

Justin Herbert

  • Passing Yards: 4700.5
  • Touchdowns: 36.5
  • Interceptions: 13.5

Justin Herbert followed up his NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year season by joining Tom Brady as the only player to throw for more than 5000 yards during the regular season in 2021.

He had 13 touchdown passes and 12 interceptions in the eight losses compared to 25 touchdowns and three interceptions in the nine victories. Perhaps if one or two of those costly throws landed in the hands of one of his receivers rather than the opposition, the Chargers could have been a playoff team.

Herbert has all the tools to be one of the elite quarterbacks in the NFL future odds. About the only thing holding him back is a deep playoff run. That is something that could certainly happen.

Another thing to ponder is how long the Chargers can keep star receivers Keenan Allen and Mike Williams together considering how much salary No. 1 receivers can command in the open market.

Is Ekeler Ready to Become an Elite Back?

Running backs can change odds, and they often do. Does Ekeler change the Los Angeles Chargers future betting odds? For those wondering what Austin Ekeler would do with a larger workload after he averaged 4.8 yards per carrying over his first four NFL seasons, they started to get an answer when he ran for 183 and three touchdowns in back-to-back wins over the Browns and Raiders.

His yards per carrying mark did drop a bit to 4.4 as he had a career-high 211 rushing attempts. Ekeler added 70 receptions and scored 20 offensive touchdowns.

Ekeler averaged 5.5 and 5.2 yards per rushing attempt during his first two seasons. It might be asking quite a bit to ask Ekeler to approach those numbers while carrying the ball more than 200 times.

The addition of rookie lineman Zion Johnson could help him be more productive in the running game than he was in 2021.

Will Chargers Crowded Backfield Limit Ekeler?

  • Rushing Touchdowns: 8.5

The Chargers added another running back when former Texas A&M running back Isaiah Spiller was picked in the fourth round of April’s NFL Draft.

While second-leading rusher Justin Jackson is now with the Detroit Lions, Spiller is joined by Joshua Kelly and Larry Rountree as players capable of working their way into the running back rotation. With so many options, one has to wonder if Ekeler will ever be a back who gets 20-25 carries.

Is Allen headed to Another 100-Catch Season?

Keenan Allen

  • Receptions: 97.5
  • Receiving Yards: 1025.5
  • Receiving Touchdowns: 7.5 (+110o) 

Nobody can accuse Allen of a lack of consistency. Over the last five seasons, he has 102, 97, 104, 100, and 106 receptions. His 157 targets were the second highest total of his career.

Allen continues to work as a possession receiver averaging just 10.2 yards per reception with six touchdowns in 2021. He had four 100-yard games a season ago and more of those contests could be coming as Allen embarks on his 10th NFL season.

Williams Worth Watching

  • Receptions: 65.5 (-125o)
  • Receiving Yards: 1000.5
  • Receiving Touchdowns: 7.5 (even odds to go over)

Williams led the Chargers in receiving yards for the first time in his five seasons with the team. Even though he shattered his career-high with 76 receptions, Williams continues to deliver the big plays as he averaged 15.1 yards per reception and had nine touchdowns. He never had more than 49 catches before last season.

Expect another big season for the former Clemson star as he has developed tremendous chemistry with Herbert. Williams still has a bit of an all-or-nothing aspect to his play as evidenced by a five-game stretch when he was held to two catches or less on four occasions.
