If you’re looking for a Super Bowl long shot to bet this NFL postseason, recent history points to the San Diego Chargers.
The last four Super Bowl winners have been featured in the Philadelphia Eagles’ home opener - Baltimore, New York, Green Bay and New Orleans – a game the Chargers won 33-30 on Sept. 15.
San Diego is currently a 40/1 long shot to win Super Bowl XLVIII – the biggest odds on the NFL futures board – the exact same price it opened the season at. The Chargers are 17/1 underdogs to win the AFC Championship.
The Bolts made the postseason cut with an overtime win over Kansas City in Week 17, getting help from losses to Miami and Baltimore, and face Cincinnati as a touchdown road underdog in the AFC Wild Card game.
San Diego finished the season 9-7 SU and 9-6-1 ATS, making the playoffs with four straight wins (3-1 ATS) to close out the regular season.
