2012-2013 Regular Season: 7-9 SU | 7-9 ATS
After a good 2-0 start last season, the San Diego Chargers took a plunge with a string of defeats to come up short in the AFC West division. They finished with a losing 7-9 SU record that could have been worse if not for their back-to-back wins to close out their season. Against the spread, they were also 7-9 overall – winning just 2 at home but did well on the road with 5 wins ATS.
Now under new coach Mike McCoy and general manager Tom Telesco, the Chargers started repairing the holes in their offense by signing the likes of running back Danny Woodhead and offensive tackle King Dunlap. Indeed, it has been a busy offseason for the Chargers who are priced +700 to top the AFC West division and +3000 for the 2014 Super Bowl
The Chargers’ series of offseason moves will be immediately tested right out of the gate in Week 1 against last year’s AFC South top team Houston Texans. San Diego hasn’t lost against to the Texans in their franchise history – they are 4-0 SU and ATS in all 4 of their meetings since 2002. Nevertheless, the Chargers come into this game as 3-point underdogs. Week 2 sees the Chargers make their first road game of the season against the Philadelphia Eagles – a match-up where San Diego is almost unbeaten against the spread. San Diego is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings.
