Los Angeles Chargers Football Betting Predictions 2017
There was plenty of crying for Philip Rivers last season in San Diego as the Chargers all-time passing yards leader-who hasn’t missed a start since taking over the reins in 2006. Suffered a career high 21 picks while completing just over 60% of his passes. Far below his career completion percentage.
It’s no wonder the Chargers drafted stud WR Mike Williams and used three of their seven draft picks on offensive linemen. According to Pro Football Focus, the Bolts allowed the most pass pressure in the league over the past three seasons. That same massive line, though, is the main reason RB Melvin Gordon showed considerable improvement.
The defense also asserted itself with Joey Rosa and Melvin Ingram forming a fierce pass-rushing duo. However, the schedule-maker did the Chargers, and rookie head coach Anthony Lynn no favors this season as they take on a league high 11 foes that owned winning records in 2016.
The feeling here, though, is if this team can shake their annual injury bug (they led the league with 355 man games lost last season). And pull out a few close ones (1-8 in games decided by a TD or less), they could supplant the Chiefs as playoff contenders
