Chargers win overall 2022 prediction: Pick of every game in Los Angeles schedule

The Los Angeles Chargers missed a game — or maybe just a game — last season to earn a wild card berth. Instead, they left a heartbreaking 9-8 loss in Week 18. That’s an improvement from 2020, but this team has much higher goals in mind this fall.

A 35-32 overtime loss to the Raiders in that season finale — a game that included a furious LA comeback with a touchdown in the final game of regulation and a Las Vegas walk-off field goal after overtime was up – held the Chargers at home for the playoffs for the seventh time in the past eight seasons. Looking to improve their fortunes in 2022, the Chargers spent heavily this offseason bringing back pass-rusher exceptional Khalil Mack and Ballhawk cornerback JC Jackson and wide receiver Mike Williams.

Week 1: vs. Raiders (TO WIN) (1-0)
Week 2: at Chiefs (TO WIN) (2-0)
Week 3: vs. Jaguars (TO WIN) (3-0)
Week 4: in Houston (LOSS) (3-1)
Week 5: at Browns (TO WIN) (4-1)
Week 6: vs. Broncos (LOSS) (4-2)
Week 7: vs. Seahawks (TO WIN) (5-2)
Week 8: Bye
Week 9: at Falcons (TO WIN) (6-2)
Week 10: at 49ers (TO WIN) (7-2)
Week 11: vs Chiefs (LOSS) (7-3)
Week 12: at Cardinals (LOSS) (7-4)
Week 13: at Raiders (TO WIN) (8-4)
Week 14: vs Dolphins (TO WIN) (9-4)
Week 15: vs Titans (LOSS) (9-5)
Week 16: at Colts (TO WIN) (10-5)
Week 17: vs. Rams (LOSS) (10-6)
Week 18: at Broncos (LOSS) (10-7)

This team has a ton of talent on both sides of the ball with Justin Herbert, Austin Ekeler, Keenan Allen and now Mack working with Joey Bosa on the other side of the ball. But, man… this week 10 stretch is an absolute gauntlet run. The Chargers will have six matchups against playoff teams during this stretch, see an improved Dolphins roster, play a road game against a Colts team that should have made the playoffs last year, and finish with a visit to Russell Wilson and the Broncos . This looks like a torture chamber.

Overall Odds: Over 10 (-125), Under 10 (+105)

Selection: Under 10

Even with the upgrades they’ve made, that sum might be a little too ambitious for the Chargers. Not that they can’t get 10 wins, but can they do it this schedule? If they are healthy, they could easily exceed this projection. But the Chargers must also dodge the crippling losses that have become far too common for the franchise in recent years (see: Week 4).
