LA Chargers at New England Patriots

How to bet on the Los Angeles Chargers
The moneyline is the simplest of bets, decided by the straight-up winner and loser of each game. Consider the following example:
- Chargers -105
- Cowboys +100
The Chargers are considered slight favorites in this matchup (indicated by -105), requiring a $105 bet to win $100 (plus the initial bet back). The Cowboys are the underdog in this matchup, paying out $200 total for a $100 bet ($100 in winnings). How much either team wins or loses by does not matter in moneyline betting, the payout remains the same.
Betting on the point spread is determinant on how many points a team wins or loses by. Take the following example:
- Chargers +6.5 (-110)
- Bills -6.5 (-110)
In this example, Los Angeles is the underdog by 6.5 points, indicated by “-6.5.” If the Chargers keep the game within seven points or win outright, the Chargers (+6.5) win the bet and would have a total payout of $19.09 on a $10 bet ($9.09 in profit). If the Bills win the game 27-20 or by more than 6 points, then Bills (-6.5) would win and the payout would be the same as listed above.
Point total (over/under)
The point total refers to the over/under line set by books. This number projects the total number of points scored in a game and, like prop betting, is bet whether one thinks the score will go over or under the set point total. For example, the Chargers’ Week 7 matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars had a point total of 54.5 points. L.A. won that game 39-29, totaling 68 points. Those that bet over the point total in the matchup would have cashed out.
The Chargers’ offense and defense were very middle-of-the-pack despite their prolific rookie quarterback, resulting in average point totals for their games. Projected point totals typically sat between 49 and 53 points in games involving the Chargers and were reliant on opponents. If L.A. was hosting the Chiefs– an explosive, high scoring offense– their point total would rise while if they were playing the Bears– a stout defensive team with a methodical offense– the point total would be lower.
In-play and live betting
Sometimes, the most thrilling and rewarding bets are bets made while games are being played. These are referred to as live bets or in-play bets. Odds are ever-changing during games, which would prove to be fruitful for sharp and prepared bettors. For example, if the Chargers (-225) were heavily favored against the Lions (+190) before kickoff, a payout on a $10 bet on the Chargers to win would win just $4.44.
However, say the Chargers fell to a big 17-3 deficit in the first half despite controlling the overall game (due to a costly turnover or special teams gaffe). Odds may swing in favor of the Lions, who may be a -110 favorite at halftime. Taking the Chargers to come back and win the game could present plus-odds (say, +130). Should a bettor take Los Angeles (+130) at halftime and the Chargers pull off the comeback, winners would win $13 instead of $4.44 (plus the initial $10 bet).
This could also be an effective way to “hedge” your bet; say a bettor took the Lions (+190) in that game, but L.A. jumps out to a 24-0 first quarter lead and is controlling the overall feel of the game, bettors could hedge by throwing some money down on the Chargers (-270) to return some of the inevitably-lost bet.
Parlays and teasers
You can always string bets together in the form of parlays or teasers. Usually during busy Sundays, bettors can parlay several teams to win or cover against the spread and if all bets are successful, the payouts are multiplied. Teasers function similarly, except they allow bettors to move each point spread to a more favorable line in exchange for diminished odds.
Chargers 2022 recap
