The Chargers have won 11 straight overall and they are favored against the Jets this weekend. Super Bowl odds have the Chargers as a close second behind Indianapolis in the AFC.
2010 Super Bowl betting has the Chargers as the hottest team in the playoffs. That doesn’t mean they will win in 2010 Super Bowl betting, but it definitely helps to have momentum. San Diego has only made one appearance in Super Bowl odds history in the big game as they played against San Francisco in 1995 and got blown out.
San Diego is a popular choice in 2010 Super Bowl betting but they have to face the league’s #1 defense this week as the New York Jets come to town. San Diego is laying over a touchdown at home in the game against New York.
2010 Super Bowl betting has not always seen the best teams reach the big game. In fact, the #1 seeds from each conference could really struggle in 2010 Super Bowl betting. That could bode well for San Diego who is a #2 seed in 2010 Super Bowl betting. The Indianapolis Colts are the top seed in the AFC in 2010 Super Bowl betting while the New Orleans Saints are the top seed in the NFC. Three of the last four top seeds in the AFC have lost in their first game in the playoffs. The 2005 Colts, the 2006 Chargers and last year’s Tennessee Titans didn’t even win a single game in the playoffs as the top seeds in the AFC. The same thing happened to the 2007 Dallas Cowboys and last year’s New York Giants.
San Diego has some positives in 2010 Super Bowl betting but a couple of negatives. The positives in 2010 Super Bowl betting are the 11-game winning streak and an offense led by Philip Rivers. The negatives in 2010 Super Bowl betting are a head coach in Norv Turner who has never really won anything and a defense that is not dominant. The Chargers were just 16th in total yards allowed this season and 11th in total points allowed. It is tough to win in 2010 Super Bowl betting without a dominant defense although in recent Super Bowl odds it is at least possible. But last year the Steelers had the better defense and won the Super Bowl while Arizona did not but the Cardinals did cover the Super Bowl odds pointspread.
