There’s plenty to like about the Chargers, and the sportsbook has started to favor the franchise, listing them as 9/1 to win the Super Bowl XLIX. The Chargers only trail Denver and Seattle in the NFL futures market.
Philip Rivers has looked masterful under center. His 15 touchdowns and two interceptions with a quarterback rating of 117.6 have impressed San Diego backers. The Chargers are 5/2 to win the AFC West and 9/2 to win the AFC Conference.
Even with the injury bug biting at their heels, San Diego has managed to hold strong and pull off five consecutive victories. Their only loss was 18-17 and came from the Cardinals in Week 1. Though they still may not be the favorite in their own AFC West division (ahem, Broncos), they’re still a team that the NFL betting community is going to have to take a good long look at heading into the second half of the season.
