Los Angeles Chargers Super Bowl Odds 2024: Latest Super Bowl 58 Odds

The Los Angeles Chargers current Super Bowl odds are . Arguably no team in the NFL had more unfortunate injury luck than the Los Angeles Chargers who went into last season as potential Super Bowl contenders.

Now that the Chargers are healthier on both sides of the field, their current Super Bowl odds were worth monitoring they have the firepower to contend against the AFC elites. Despite Herbert playing fairly well early in the season, a poor start has worsened the Chargers’ odds.

The defense was not free from the injury bug last season as that side of the ball was decimated early on. Team leaders Derwin James and Joey Bosa dealt with nagging injuries, leaving a major void in production in both the pass and ground game. Even with Khalil Mack, the defensive ground game simply did not have enough to remain competitive and finished the year 29th in Def Rush DVOA. Will better health lead to defensive improvement in 2023? That hasn’t been the case to this point.

Los Angeles Chargers Super Bowl Odds Analysis

One would think Chargers will go as far as Justin Herbert can take them, but it’s been a disappointing start to the season with Herbert playing well and the defense very much not. Herbert’s presence alone made the Chargers an attractive Super Bowl bet because he has a rocket arm with pinpoint accuracy, giving them the necessary leadership to contend against the ultra-competitive AFC.

The issue is that Herbert has looked shaky at times to start the season as he deals with an injury to his non-throwing hand and overthrows his receivers when under pressure. That spells doom for a Chargers unit who solely relies on their offense as their defense has given them no help as a horrific unit. The defense currently ranks 29th in Def DVOA in comparison to their offense that clocks in at eighth.

Even when Herbert looked back like his former elite self, the Chargers were once again unable to get the win in large part of their defense. Herbert threw for an astonishing 323 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception, yet it was still not enough for them to get the win at home. The Detroit Lions had no issue with finding success through the air or on the ground, turning the game into a volatile shootout which resulted in a 41-38 loss as their kicker nailed a game winner.

The defensive issues have seriously hampered the Chargers chances of making it to the playoffs, ranking near dead last across the board in various metrics. Especially in coverage, ranking 20th or worse in Def Pass DVOA, EPA, and Success Rate. Their ground game has fared slightly better in the mid field, yet still surrenders production as they get backed up into scoring position. This level of play will bring too much variance for the Chargers to confidently make a run, having to slow down the likes of the Chiefs, Dolphins, Ravens, and Bengals come playoff time.

That is even if they make the playoffs, currently on the outside looking in after another back breaking loss. Their current Super Bowl odds have them dipping into longshot status, potentially missing the cut in a loaded AFC conference. Expecting the Chiefs to run away with the division, the Chargers will be left battling for one of the three wild card spots. Until their defense can resemble any form of production, then they are a pass in the Super Bowl market as they simply do not have enough firepower to beat the AFC elites.
