San Diego Chargers Odds to Win 2013 AFC West, 2014 Super Bowl
The San Diego Chargers odds to win the 2013 AFC West were set at 7/1, while their odds of winning the 2014 Super Bowl were at 50/1.
Some observers believe the Chargers will dramatically improve during the 2013 regular season. Oddsmakers do have San Diego winning more than 8 regular season games at -130.
There is still Philip Rivers as the starting quarterback. Newly appointed head coach Mike McCoy is inserting a new offense that should result in more completions and less turnovers. In theory, Rivers will likely yield more yards.
Then there is Cam Thomas, who has 47 total tackles and six sacks in his first three seasons with the Chargers.
Probably most important of all, the Chargers have an entirely new coaching staff.
Change may be good for San Diego, but how about this schedule:

They can beat Dallas, Oakland and Kansas City at home. They have a shot at beating Cincinnati and/or Indianapolis at home. Houston, Denver, the New York Giants, not so sure.
On the road the prospect of wins looks even greater in Philadelphia, Tennessee, Oakland, Jacksonville, Miami and Kansas City.
A San Diego team that improves even slightly could win 9 regular season games in 2013.
