San Diego Chargers: Betting odds and 2007 football

 The San Diego Chargers are one of the favorite football teams in 2007 to win.

San Diego Chargers: Betting odds and 2007 football The San Diego Chargers enter the 2007 football season as one of the favorite teams to win both their division and the Super Bowl. After a 14-2 record last season, the head coach Marty Schottenheimer was fired because he did not get along with the GM, and coordinators Wade Phillips and Cam Cameron left for head coaching jobs in other NFL teams. This brought quite a confusion among fans and players, but the odds remain in favor of the San Diego Chargers this football season.

 The new head coach Norv Turner does a great job of running a high-powered offense and MVP LaDainian Tomlinson is the best weapon a coach could ask - last football season Tomlinson rushed for  a league-leading 1815 yards and set a new record with 31 touchdowns. Quarterback Philip Rivers is in good health and out of the rookie spell. The Chargers still have the best tight end in the NFL and the defense is strong with powerful linebackers - Shawn Merriman led the league with 17 sacks last football season.

 During their final preseason football game the San Diego Chargers built up a 10-point lead and held on for a 16-13 win over the San Francisco 49ers. Craig Davis caught a 40-yard pass for a touchdown, and Nate Kaeding booted three field goals for the Chargers. Earlier Philip Rivers was 20-for-29 for 282 yards and two touchdowns, while Vincent Jackson caught four passes for 92 yards and a pair of majors for the Chargers for the 33-31 win over the Arizona Cardinals.

 Although some experts argue that the great 2006 season was due to a light schedule and problems with other NFL teams, the betting odds on the San Diego Chargers remain one of the best this football season. The following betting odds on the Pittsburgh Steelers are posted by the online betting website Bookmaker (new window):

San Diego Chargers odds to win the AFC: +350

San Diego Chargers odds to win the AFC West: -200

Odds on the Chargers to win the 2008 Super Bowl: +505
