Odds to the Super Bowl (2014) 75/1

Odds to win AFC West 8/1

Regular Season Wins Total OVER 7.5 +105

Regular Season Wins Total UNDER 7.5 -135

The Chargers are not expected to win more than 7 games during the 2013 regular season, according to oddsmakers.

This is a division that is expected to be dominated by the Denver Broncos, who themselves were listed at 1/4 odds of winning the division.

The problem with San Diego: The wide receiver and corner back positions are especially weak and there are also plenty of questions as to whether starting quarterback Philip Rivers is the future of this team.

The exits of Aubrayo Franklin and Antonio Garay from the middle of the Chargers’ 3-4 front will make the Chargers defense even more vulnerable.

Sure there is greater depth in the offense compared to last season but the line still remains a work in progress.

Drew Magary of Deadspin.com writes of the Chargers new head coach:

Mike McCoy, who could go 2-14 and blow up a church this season and still be liked by Chargers fans simply for not being Norv Turner. It's like the grace period after winning a Super Bowl. No team that fires Norv Turner has ever come to regret it. Norv was the coach of this team for six seasons, but six seasons under Norv feels like 38. You poor, poor bastards.

As for the Chargers starting quarterback, Magary writes:

Rivers is now 31 years old. He has 26 children and no functional knees or shoulders. He is done. So very done. Every game this season will feature him turning the ball over three times in the first 57 minutes of play, then furiously racking up 200 yards in the final three minutes of a blowout to help get his fantasy score out of negative integers. His receiving options include a healthy stable of #4 wideouts and Antonio Gates' two club feet.

We can’t even imagine this Chargers team coming close to 8 wins during the 2013 NFL regular season so your best bet is the UNDER 7.5 at -135 here.
