Los Angeles Chargers Odds, Bet Types, and Team History
The Chargers are firmly going for it this season. They're taking advantage of Justin Herbert's rookie contract, having traded for edge rusher Khalil Mack and signing cornerback J.C. Jackson in free agency.
The urgency was especially felt last season after a Week 18 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders kept the Chargers out of the playoffs. Herbert thrived throughout the season, with Austin Ekeler and Mike Williams enjoying breakout seasons and Keenan Allen being his dependable self. That wasn't enough, though, as the team's defense consistently let them down.
Now, the Chargers defense looks improved, but it faces likely the best division in the NFL. The Broncos added Russell Wilson. The Raiders traded for Davante Adams. The Chiefs, well, are the Chiefs. The Chargers have the talent to take a step forward in 2022-23, but it won't be easy.
Chargers Team Rivals
The Kansas City Chiefs are the team to beat, having played in two of the last three Super Bowls and the last three AFC Championship Games. The Las Vegas Raiders ended the Chargers' 2021-22 season, while Denver Broncos have a rich history of Super Bowls and just added a quarterback who has one of those on his CV.
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.

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?
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.
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 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.
