Expectations for the Chargers this Season
The Los Angeles Chargers are set to have a big season in 2022, and the season odds show that this team could be a Super Bowl contender.
Los Angeles has been building towards this moment for years, and they are now well on their way.
NFL betting trends can help you make picks for the Los Angeles Chargers, but it’s still best to find all of the odds that have value.

Los Angeles Chargers Week 1 Matchup Preview
The Los Angeles Chargers should be one of the most interesting NFL teams this season, and the Week 1 matchup with the Las Vegas Raiders should be one of the best. Los Angeles is a 3.5-point betting favorite at home in this matchup.
Both the Chargers and Raiders are expected to be among the most explosive offenses in the league this season. It will be the defense of the Los Angeles Chargers that will likely dictate the outcome of this game.

Quarterback Justin Herbert is one of the best players in the NFL, and the odds are set at +1000 for him to win the MVP Award this season. You can also bet on Herbert to have the most passing yards in the NFL this season at +850.
Los Angeles Chargers 2022 Season Odds
Chargers 2022 Super Bowl Odds
The Los Angeles Chargers have odds set at +1600 to win the Super Bowl, which actually makes them one of the top picks.
There are just five teams ahead of Los Angeles, and those odds can change in a hurry based on how Los Angeles does to start the year.
The five teams ahead of the Chargers are:
- Buffalo Bills +650
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers +750
- Kansas City Chiefs +950
- Los Angeles Rams +1100
- Green Bay Packers +1200
Los Angeles Chargers Playoff Odds
Based on the current odds, it would be a pretty big disappointment if the Chargers are not able to make the playoffs this season.
Los Angeles currently has odds set at -156 to make the playoffs in 2022, and the odds are at +128 for them to miss out on the postseason.
The Chargers are going to have to play well, especially in the AFC West, to find a way to get enough wins to reach the playoffs.
Los Angeles Chargers AFC West Odds
The Kansas City Chiefs have dominated the AFC West Division in recent years, but their reign is going to end at some point.
Oddsmakers give the Chargers a pretty decent chance to win the division this season as the odds are tight.
Here are the AFC West odds:
- Kansas City Chiefs +155
- Los Angeles Chargers +240
- Denver Broncos +260
- Las Vegas Raiders +700
Los Angeles Chargers AFC Championship Odds
Winning the AFC Championship and going to the Super Bowl is not going to be easy for the Chargers as this conference is loaded with great teams.
The Chargers are at +850 to win the AFC, but that still puts them behind the Buffalo Bills (+350) and the Kansas City Chiefs (+500).
If all of the top teams make it to the playoffs in the AFC, then it should be quite the battle in the postseason.
