The Los Angeles Chargers are one, if not the most loaded team in the entire NFL for the upcoming 2019 season.
Looking at their roster on all three phases, it’s Super Bowl or bust. The 2018 season was a great one, but it ended way too early in the playoffs considering what they showed in the regular season.
The Chargers will have to fight against the Kansas City Chiefs for the top of the division but also against the lack of support in LA. Not to mention RB Melvin Gordon’s holdout.
Chargers Look Strong In The AFC West Division
The LA Chargers are listed at +160 to win the AFC West division, only behind the Chiefs (-160). The bet to win the division has an implied probability of 34%.
They are, however, in a much better position than the Denver Broncos (+1200) and the Oakland Raiders (+1200) to win the AFC West.
MyBookie.ag also listed the Chargers at +1400 to win Super Bowl LIV.
Only the New England Patriots (+700) and the Chiefs (+800) have better odds coming out of the AFC.

The people making the odds at MyBookie.ag listed the Chargers wins total odds at 9.5 victories for the 2019 season.
The juice on the Over is at -130 and +100 to wager on the Under.
The Chargers had a taste of success last season. Winning 12 games in the year but losing to the New England Patriots in the divisional round felt like their season came to an end way too early.
In 2019, they should aim for bigger goals. Winning more than 9.5 games should not be a problem for the Chargers.
Los Angeles Chargers 2019 Roster Changes
When you have loaded roster, it hard to improve. The Chargers somehow did it by adding veteran Linebacker Thomas Davis from the Carolina Panthers.
Thomas Davis is one of the most respected LB in the game and will add both experience and savviness to an already great defensive unit.
Need To Replace Prominent Players
They also added QB Tyrod Taylor as insurance, if veteran QB Philip Rivers gets injured at some point in the season.
Los Angeles most prominent players to replace will be WR Tyrell Williams who is now with the Raiders, and cornerback Jason Verrett. He plays for the 49ers.
The other issue is the contract dispute with RB Melvin Gordon. The tailback is on a holdout until he gets a new contract.
Los Angeles Chargers 2019 NFL Draft
The Chargers took advantage of their seven draft picks to add five players for the defensive side of the ball.
Addition Made To Already Stacked Defensive Line
The most notable move was selecting DT Jerry Tillery from Notre Dame to an already stacked defensive line.
Safety Nasir Adderley from Delaware will come in handy as well.
The team selected QB Easton Stick from North Dakota State from as a development project.
