Sports Betting Odds – Chargers the hottest team in the NFL

For all the talk of teams going after the perfect regular season record San Diego was somehow lost in the shuffle. After jumping out to perfect 13-0 starts both New Orleans and Indianapolis dominated the NFL betting lines discussion about the best teams in football.

All that while the Chargers quietly amassed the second best record in football (13-3) and now enter the post season with on a very impressive 16-game winning streak. The Chargers have the momentum and the talent to win the Super Bowl and right now have to be considered the favorite in the sports betting odds to hoist the Lombardi Trophy in Miami.

Led by perhaps the most underrated QB in online betting, Phil Rivers (4254 yards, 28 TDs, 9 INTs, 104.4 Passer rating) this offense is nothing to fool around with. The New York Jets’ vaunted defense will be severely tested against the Bolt’s passing game. On defense this is a team that has gotten progressively better over the season as players got healthy and schemes came together.

During the team’s winning streak it’s given up fewer than 20 points a game and is solid on all phases of defense. San Diego has also beaten some very good teams during their win streak including three playoff teams (Dallas, Cincy, Philly). The week off will also help get the players rested and healthy and ready to get the 14th win in a row. The Jets, the worst team left in the playoffs and decided underdogs coming into this matchup (+8) will have to play the game of their life to cool down the red hot Chargers.
