Who says history doesn’t repeat itself? The Chargers have gone back to the future, but will it prove to be an omen for the future of the Chargers? Moving to Los Angeles after 55 seasons in San Diego, the Chargers are right back where they started. The Chargers are one of two AFC West teams to have called Los Angeles home during their existence, albeit for just one season. They began life as the Los Angeles Chargers in the AFL in 1960 before moving to San Diego in 1961. The Chargers won the AFL West title in four of their first five seasons, capturing an AFL title in 1963 with a 51-10 drubbing of the Boston Patriots.
The Oakland Raiders are the other AFC West team that previously made a home in L.A.

How To Win Los Angeles Chargers Bets
If the Chargers want to made any headway up the division standings, they’ll need to make some hay within the division. The Chargers were a dismal 1-5 within the division during their 5-11 campaign in 2016, after going a winless 0-6 against AFC West opponents during the 2015 NFL season which they finished 4-12. The Chargers have dropped eight successive road games to divisional opponents.
The Chargers were also the only NFL team to lose a game to the Cleveland Browns last season and closed the season with five straight setbacks. They went 2-6 on the road but curiously, both of their road victories came against playoff teams – at the AFC Central champion Houston Texans and at the NFC champion Atlanta Falcons. Then-San Diego rallied from a 27-20 deficit to defeat the Falcons 33-30 in overtime, a harbinger of what was to come for Atlanta against New England in Super Bowl 51.
The Chargers were a solid over bet, going 9-6-1 against the total, and were 7-9 against the spread, including 4-4 on the road.
