The LA Chargers ‘Charged’ to Take the AFC West

Can the Los Angeles Chargers streal the AFC West away from the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2021-2022 season?

If you remember last season, the LA Chargers handed the Kansas City Chiefs a 38-21 loss on January 3rd.

This was one of just two losses for the recent Champs and back-to-back Super Bowl participants. The other came at the hands of Jon Gruden’s Las Vegas Raiders, the black sheep of the AFC West.

The other game the Chargers played against the Chiefs went right down to the wire as well. In Week 2, the Chargers and their stud of a rookie QB took KC into overtime and lost 23-20.

One thing is for sure, even if the Chargers don’t win the division this year, this is a team that is coming up in a big way.

Odds on the AFC West

The market from top bookmakers at Illinois opened with the betting lines showing the Kansas City Chiefs at -455; the LA Chargers at +525; the LV Raiders at +1400; and the Denver Broncos at +1500.

These lines showed that sportsbooks around the globe thought the Chargers were poised to be the second-best team in the AFC West and significantly more likely to win the division than the Raiders or Broncos.

But even though no announcements have been made, bookmakers believe that Aaron Rodgers will find his way to Mile High in 2021. So much so that the Denver Broncos have jumped the Chargers on the boards at most betting outlets and currently hold that No. 2 spot. The Broncos now have odds as short as +400 to win the west.

But how much will it matter? Even if Aaron Rodgers does move to Denver, the offensive line isn’t great—rated by Pro Fantasy Football at No. 25 in the league—and Rodgers still doesn’t have the most outstanding targets. Sure, the potential is there, and some experts are touting the Denver receiving corps as high as No. 6 in the NFL … but let’s be honest, Cortland Sutton missed most of the season, and we are not sure what the Broncos will be getting back at this point. Then there are two highly touted young receivers in K.J. Hamler and Jerry Jeudy but what we have seen from them is just handfuls of dropped passes—or figurative handfuls, because they can’t keep the ball in their hands.

As far as the O-lines are concerned, the Chargers look much better than Denver. Bryan Bulga is back and healthy and is continually graded at 75.0 or better. On top of Bulga being back to top form, the Chargers grabbed another former Green Bay big-man in Corey Linsley. This snapper was, in many eyes, the top free-agent center on the market.

The Chargers also have some solid back-ups on the line, namely Brenden James. The young guard needs to work on his run-blocking but is a solid pass protector, which is just what Justin Herbert needs when Oday Aboushi takes a breather or goes down with a stinger.

Although the Chargers are far from boasting the best offensive line in the league, they may have the most improved line in the entire NFL.

If the Chargers win the games they need and split wins with the KC Chiefs again; they could take the AFC West. After all, the LA Chargers are tied for the 3rd most manageable schedule in the league when the SOS is based on current season win projections—using the win/loss over/under totals for each team on the schedule instead of last season’s record.

Will they actually win the AFC West? Probably not; the Chiefs are loaded. But hey, you never know. That said, I believe the Chargers are poised for a wild card berth in 2021-2022, and this team will continue to surprise with upset wins over teams that are better on paper.

What are the odds that the Chargers will get nine wins and make a solid run on the division but fall short to a 12-wins Chiefs squad? We will find out.

Before Joe Biden was elected as president of the United States, Donald Trump was in favour of legalising all online casinos/sportsbooks in each state. Because of this many Americans further increased their interest in gambling. If you are one that found their interest to increase even more, then you are in the right place.

Making Preparations

Setting up your account is the initial thing you need to do before placing a wager on a sporting event via the internet. It is not as simple as stuffing dollar cash into your USB port and shouting the wagers you desire onto the screen of your laptop. It would be really cool if that were the case, but unfortunately, we do not yet live in that kind of world.

Deposit Money into Your Online Sportsbook Account.

After you have determined which sportsbook suits your needs the most, it is time to fund your account with the sportsbook of your choice. The fact that this is something most individuals have never done before makes it a potentially nerve-wracking experience for them. The good news is that we are going to guide you through each stage of the process.

In all honesty, this procedure ought to be one that is uncomplicated and trouble-free in all respects.

One more point that has to be brought up is this side remark. It is not necessary to immediately deposit your full bankroll onto an online account when you first start playing. If you have never done anything like this before, it’s best to ease into things by making a modest initial investment. If you wind up falling in love with it and decide that you want to relocate your entire bankroll online, then you should absolutely do it. However we wish for you to understand that taking things slowly is perfectly acceptable in this case.

The Fundamentals of a Winning Sports Gambling Strategy

Below you will find 2 strategies that we highly suggest you take into account whenever playing at a sportsbook or at any gambling establishment.

Gamble in a Sober Manner and Don’t Get Tilted.

You would think that gambling on sports while under the influence of alcohol is against basic sense, yet you’d be astonished by the number of individuals who do it. Is it just a fluke that casinos in Las Vegas provide free alcoholic drinks to their customers while they gamble there? It doesn’t seem likely to us.

If you wish to become a successful sports gambler, you should avoid wagering whilst being under the effect of alcohol since doing so will affect your judgement and is one of the most important things you can do to improve your chances of winning.

The second piece of advice that we’ll go through is “Don’t Go on Tilt.”

Poker players frequently use the term “going on tilt,” that simply refers to the act of allowing one’s feelings to take control of one’s decision-making process, which might also frequently result in unwise choices. 

You shouldn’t place any additional wagers if you are furious or irritated about something, like a couple of “bad beats” with your wagers on sports, because this will just make your mood worse. Before you begin to make any more sports gambling choices, you should give yourself a break, get some fresh air, and clear your thoughts.

Make Sure You do Your Homework

This is perhaps the single most crucial tactic to employ when wagering on sports. Before you ever place a wager, you should always make sure you’ve done your homework. Although following your gut instinct when placing bets on your favourite sport might succeed for you on occasion, doing so consistently will not result in you winning money when wagering on sports over the long term.

In order to turn a profit from sports gambling, you will have to undertake research, study, as well as all the other things associated with homework for every selection that you make. Examine the statistics, identify any patterns, devise a wagering strategy, and review the results of previous games; in short, do everything it is possible to do in order to guarantee that your selection has worth before you put a wager on it.
