Spreads are out for every NFL game! Even though it’s going to change as the 2016 NFL season gets closer, it’s fun to see how the San Diego Chargers fare in terms of being favorites or underdogs.

Cantor Technology released the information on Thursday, and there weren’t too many surprises for the Chargers. They are favorites in seven games and underdogs in the rest. The games they are favored to win are against are the Jacksonville Jaguars, New Orleans Saints, Tennessee Titans, Miami Dolphins, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Oakland Raiders and Cleveland Browns. Each of those teams finished with a losing record last season.

The Chargers went 0-6 against the AFC West last season, which is likely the reason why they are only favored in one game against their division opponents (Week 15 at home against the Raiders).

But for as much as some believe they are going to be a bad team, there is only game Cantor Technology sees the Chargers losing by more than a touchdown, and that’s against the Carolina Panthers in Week 14 (-10 line). The Chargers did go 4-12 last season, but they lost by double-digit touchdowns in only three games.

So those are the spreads for now. From looking at it, the Bolts have a somewhat easy schedule. But when it comes to the Chargers, nothing is ever easy.
