Football Betting Chargers Preseason Roster Highlights

Football betting on the San Diego Chargers has certainly not been for the faint of heart since Norv Tuner took over as coach in 2007.

Football betting fans last year saw the Chargers rise from the dead as they overcame a 3 game deficit in the final month of the season to beat the football odds and make the playoffs.  The big reason for San Diego’s football betting success last year was quarterback Philip Rivers, who had his best year ever against the football odds in 2008.

Rivers finished the football betting campaign with an astounding 34/11 touchdown/interception ratio and 4009 yards passing with a quarterback rating of 105.5.  He is firmly ensconced as the starter and will see limited action in the football betting preseason.

Billy Volek, a 10 year pro out of Fresno State, will be Rivers’ backup and should see a fair amount of action during the football betting preseason.  Volek saw no action during the 2008 football betting season and has not played much at all since 2005.

His best football betting season was in 2003 with the Tennessee Titans as he threw for 2486 yards and a quarterback rating of 87 with an 18/10 touchdown/interception ratio.  The Chargers ranked 3rd overall in the NFL last football betting season for average yards per offensive play thanks in large part to their explosive aerial attack.

They also finished 2nd overall in touchdowns and 1st overall in touchdown passes.  Wide receiver Vincent Jackson, a 5 year pro out of Northern Colorado proved to be an explosive threat last year.  Jackson caught 59 passes for 1098 yards and 7 touchdowns as he averaged 19 yards per catch.

Tight end Antonio Gates was another outstanding performer last year for the Chargers.  The 7 year pro out of Kent State caught 60 passes for 704 yards and 8 touchdowns.  A man to keep an eye on this year is running back Darren Sproles, a 5 year pro out of Kansas State.

He averaged 5.41 yards per carry last year but was even more valuable on kickoff and punt returns.  Sproles had a great game in the Chargers playoff win over Indianapolis.
