OVER 7 wins (-110) / SAN DIEGO CHARGERS 

Last year's San Diego Chargers had more luck than any other team on the NFL. And it was all BAD luck! They finished last in the AFC West Division, and their 4-12 record was third WORST in the entire AFC Conference. San Diego suffered some devastating injury losses on offense, involving impact players (Keenan Allen / Antonio Gates)... and along the offensive line. Despite that, they were a decent statistical team. In fact, they still had more yards on offense (372 / #7 in the league) than they allowed (362). So on paper, this was a team that really should have finished 8-8 or 9-7. Look for a 'market correction' in the 2016 season. All we need to hit this exotic wager is a .500 record (8-8) or better. We also can't ignore the fact that the Charger's brought back old friend Ken Whisenhunt as offensive coordinator in the off-season. There's a very good chance that he brings back the magic of the 2013 season (his lone year here). In that season, QB Phillip Rivers had a CAREER season, with 33 TD passes, only 11 ints, 4478 passing yards, and a QB rating of 105.5. And San Diego finished #5 in the entire league on offense (after finishing #31 in 2012). In 2016, RB Melvin Gordon has nowhere to go but UP... Keenan Allen is healthy... and WR Travis Benjamin was one of the better free agent VALUE signings of the off-season. This offense can't HELP but be more efficient this year. The defense has a lot of pieces that can contribute as well. This is a sneaky, under-the-radar team in a division that might not be great. Can they win the entire AFC WEST this year? Probably not. But can they get back to .500 or have a slight winning season? You can BET on it!
