Los Angeles Chargers Odds

Betting Guide, Schedule And Predictions

Written by

The Los Angeles Chargers clinched their first playoff berth under Justin Herbert but blew a 27-0 lead in the AFC Wild Card round. The Bolts battled injuries again, namely to All-Pro tackle Rashawn Slater and to many of their receivers. Brandon Staley returns as the head coach and Kellen Moore is the new OC in town. This year seems to be the last leg for Staley’s gimmicky approach and, if it doesn’t succeed, he may be shown the door. However, as long as Herbert heads this team– and they keep defensive weapons like JC Jackson and Joey Bosa– the Chargers will frequent the top of AFC odds boards. LA Chargers odds to win the Super Bowl were +2500 heading into the 2023 NFL Draft but have since fallen to +3000.

A twist to the early offseason – Austin Ekeler requested to speak with other teams about a trade after him and the Chargers couldn’t progress on extension talks.

Chargers inactives for their Wild Card matchup against the Jaguars:

The Chargers may have another mismatch in the passing game in this weekend's Wild-Card round. Los Angeles ranks seventeenth in pass offense DVOA, per Football Outsiders, ninth in PFF pass grade and top 10 in adjusted sack rate. Stopping the pass is still a problem for the Jaguars. Jacksonville's pass defense still ranks below bottom three in pass D DVOA and twenty-fourth in PFF pass defense grade. Additionally, the Jaguars are ranked bottom three in tackling by PFF.

Josh Palmer's receiving yards prop sits at 49.5 with +205 the best available price to score a touchdown at BetRivers.

The Chargers ruled WR Mike Williams out for Saturday's game against the Jaguars. The star receiver suffered a back injury in Week 18 against the Broncos.

The injury is expected to sideline him for two to three weeks. Barring a deep postseason run, Mike Williams' season is over.

Chargers receiver Mike Williams was not seen at practice again on Thursday. The star receiver suffered a back injury late in Week 18's game against the Broncos. The Chargers listed Williams as questionable for the game on Saturday.

Mike Williams did not participate in practice on Tuesday or Wednesday for the Chargers. Williams suffered a back injury in Week 18 against the Broncos.

Keep an eye on the injury report as we near kickoff. The Chargers have been riddled with injuries this season, but when Williams and Keenan Allen both played 50+ percent of snaps in games this year, the Chargers were 4-0.

The Los Angeles Chargers are -1.5 (-110) favorites at PointsBet for their matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars in the Wildcard round. This spread opened with Chargers as -2.5 favorites but has moved down to -1.5 in some spots. The total for the game is set at 47.5.

Justin Herbert is looking to secure his first playoff victory on the road in Jacksonville Saturday. Although he was injured in the team's final game of the regular season, Mike Williams is expected to play against the Jaguars. Left tackle Rashawn Slater has returned to practice this week but will not be available for the game. If the Chargers make a deep postseason run, Slater could very likely return.

Chargers inactives for Week 18 against the Broncos:
QB Easton Stick
CB Bryce Callahan
RB Isaiah Spiller
FB Zander Horvath
OT Storm Norton
WR Michael Bandy
DT Tyeler Davison

Author: Derek Wagner

The Chargers are -3 (-110) favorites at PointsBet for their Week 18 matchup against the Broncos. The point total is set at 40 or 40.5 depending on where you shop.

Brandon Staley reiterated that the team will be trying to earn the No. 5 seed in the playoffs. In order to do this, the Chargers need to beat the Broncos and have the Bengals defeat the Ravens. The Chargers have won four in a row and are hoping to make it five to enter the postseason as one of the hottest teams in the AFC. Running back Austin Ekeler has 6 rushing touchdowns during the team's winning streak.

Chargers inactives for Week 17 against the Rams:
QB Easton Stick
S Derwin James
RB Isaiah Spiller
FB Zander Horvath
OT Storm Norton
WR Michael Bandy
DT Tyeler Davison

Author: Derek Wagner

The Chargers may be able to take advantage of a mismatch Week 17 in the passing game. The Chargers offense ranks twenty-fourth in pass offense DVOA, per Football Outsiders, tenth in PFF pass grade. Stopping the pass is still a problem for the Rams. The Rams pass defense still ranks below league average in pass D DVOA and PFF pass defense grade and is bottom twelve in yards per pass allowed.  

Mike Williams' receiving yards prop sits at 50.5 with +170 the best available price to score a touchdown at FanDuel.

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.

Point spread

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.


Futures are long-term bets that can range from an offseason to a full season (or beyond). Team win totals, award winners, and player performance are common futures.
