San Diego Chargers 2009 NFL Football Future Lines

San Diego Chargers Betting Odds – NFL Football Future Lines

Let’s take a look at the numbers:

betED NFL Football Betting Odds – San Diego Chargers Odds To Win AFC West  -300

Season Over/Under Win Total Betting Odds From beted.com – 9

For a team that has a ton of talent and plays in a division so weak that the other three teams could pool their resources and still not win the AFC West, what do the Chargers have to bitch about? LaDainian Tomlinson pouts, Shawne Merriman has a hissy fit when the team drafts someone who plays his position, and Philip Rivers mouths off to opponents during games. How about just play the game?

San Diego took a few months to recover from loss of Merriman last year, finished strong and still needed a monumental collapse by the Broncos to win the dysfunctional West at 8-8.San Diego Chargers 2009 NFL Football Future Lines

There’s enough firepower this season to tack on 2 or 3 more wins; assuming no major injury to Rivers, a playoff spot should be in the bank by early December.

Tomlinson and TE Antonio Gates always seem to be fighting off injuries, and if they stay reasonable healthy, moving the ball won’t be a problem. Getting its offense on the field is the problem. Without Merriman the Chargers put only token pressure on the quarterback (one reason they drafted Larry English, sending Mewrriman into conniptions), and because of that the secondary was exposed. Only the Seahawks gave up more yards through the air last season.

Surprising stat: Nate Kaeding has made more than 80 percent of his attempts for 5 straight years.

Team strengths: What doesn’t kill you can only make you stronger, and the Chargers know they should not have made the playoffs last season, let alone play in the AFC Championshp. With Oakland, KC and Denver all in turmoil, the Chargers should walk in the West.

Team Weakness: Other than drafting Eanglish, not a lot seems to have been done to address defensive problems. But the division is poor and the schedule doesn’t not include many top-tier offensive teams, so SD should be fine until the playoffs roll around.

  1. San Diego will be one of the most interesting teams to watch this season in the AFC. They have enough talent to win the conference, but they need to play like they can every week.
