2021 Los Angeles Chargers CashBet Wagering Analysis

On this occasion, the Chargers are one of the most interesting brands for Sportsbook odds.  Some gamblers see the Chargers as a potentially strong bargain and dark horse.  LA’s metrics were not that bad.  And gamblers appreciated their profitability of going 9-7 against the spread.  Many sharps see the Chargers as a team on the come.  Further, the Chiefs Super Bowl collapse has gamblers seeking alternatives.

Staley’s defensive prowess with the Rams adds to the favorable perception of the Chargers.  Most gamblers see the LA offense as set with Herbert.  As long as the Chargers’ defense is merely above average, Los Angeles could thrive.  Correlate that has been Kansas City’s Super Bowl formula.  Assuming Herbert continues to ascend, the Chargers can take full advantage of the NFL’s expanded playoff.  At the very least.

2012 Los Angeles Chargers Team Overview

In 2020 the Chargers ranked 9th in the NFL for total offense and 10th for total defense.  Thus, Staley inherits a capable team as a rookie NFL head coach.  He got his break when the Chicago Bears hired him as an outside linebacker coach in 2017. His association with former Bears defensive coordinator and current Denver Broncos head coach Vic Fangio was a resume enhancer.  To illuminate, Staley wowed the football community leading the Rams defense last year.  He’s seen as a Betting on Super Bowl difference-maker.

Overall, Justin Herbert threw for 4336 yards, a 31/10 TD/INT ratio, and a 98.3 QB rating as a rookie in 2020.  Herbert blew away all expectations in taking over the starting QB role.  Wide receiver Keenan Allen was Herbert’s top target.  To show, Allen caught 100 passes for 992 yards and eight touchdowns.  It was the third time in the past four seasons that Allen caught 100 or more passes.  His one exception was a 97-catch campaign.

LA uses a running back by committee approach.  However, sixth-round draft pick Larry Roundtree of Missouri could be a Super Bowl betting odds sleeper. Georgia tight end Tre McKitty was a highly acclaimed 97th overall pick.  First-round pick Rashawn Slater of Northwestern was picked to protect Herbert for years to come.

Defensive end Joey Bosa dominated the defense with 7.5 sacks and 14.5 tackles for loss.  Bosa serves well as the kingpin of the stop unit.  Staley will build schemes around Bosa’s ability to dominate.

Historically the Chargers were born in 1960 as charter members of the American Football League.  Following one season in LA, they played in San Diego from 1961 through 2016.  Stadium issues led them back to Los Angeles.  Now they share a sparkling new SoFi Stadium with the Rams.

2021 Los Angeles Chargers Schedule Highlights

A week four Monday night game at the Las Vegas Raiders could determine the top threat to the Chiefs in the AFC West.  Both the Chargers and Raiders have hopes of upending Kansas City in 2021.  Also, the Chargers get a week 11 NBC Sunday Night Football showcase at the Pittsburgh Steelers.  A win at Pittsburgh would further enhance the Chargers Super Bowl betting credentials.
