The 2022-23 NFL Season has not disappointed in spectacle and surprises alike.
After 15 weeks, the truth has finally arrived for the league’s 32 teams; some already know they are out of contention, but some could secure their return to the playoffs by being among the 14 survivors who will vie for a chance to win the Super Bowl LVII.
Many teams still have a chance to stay alive in the season and fight until the end for a playoff berth, but they have to play three perfect games to do so.
One of these teams is the Chargers, which still has many options to qualify for the postseason via the wild card. Meanwhile, the Bengals and Browns will have a spectacular closing of the regular season, playing for everything in the last three weeks.

Where Can I Watch it?
Why Bet the Chargers
The Chargers enter Week 16, winning three of their last four games and playing their best football defensively in the previous two weeks. As a result, they have managed to put their record at 8-6 and remain in contention for the AFC Wild Card.
While they would need other results, the Chargers could clinch their postseason berth with a win this week against the Colts.
The Chargers had failed to qualify for the NFL playoffs since the 2018 season when their starting quarterback was Philip Rivers, so they have never had a chance with Justin Herbert.
After a significant investment in the off-season, it seems logical to think that they will be fighting for the AFC against other contenders, although that remains to be seen, they must first qualify.
Undoubtedly, the Chargers need the best version of Hebert in this final stretch of the season to help them secure their pass to the postseason.
Herbert became the only player in NFL history to have 4,000 air yards in each of his first three seasons, and it was his 22nd career game with 300 air yards, five more than any other player before his 25th birthday in NFL history.
They are coming off a 17-14 win over the Titans.
Why Bet the Colts
On the other hand, we have the Indianapolis Colts, a team that at times was thought to have a chance to be in the postseason in a division like the AFC South that has had so many problems, but they come to this week 16 with four consecutive losses.
The Colts, with a 4-9 record, lost seven of their last eight games and are coming off a game to forget last week, in which they squandered the largest halftime lead in NFL history after being up 33-0 before the final two quarters of the game to the Vikings.
This game was undoubtedly rock bottom for the Colts, and it finished off a slap in the face for a team that already has to think about next season after a disappointing campaign.
Quarterback Matt Ryan will no longer be remembered for being the league’s only one-time MVP but as the only quarterback to lose two games with his team-leading by at least 25 points.
Final Betting Analysis: Chargers vs. Colts
While the Colts might still have some chances to qualify for the postseason, the hard hit received in the Week 15 comeback is lethal for them.
At MyBookie.ag, we can see that there is a Moneyline that favors the Chargers at -214, while the Colts start at +171.
On the other hand, the Chargers know that their only chance to be in the party in January is to win this game and the remaining ones, so they will go for the kill or die this week 16.
With that said, our winner’s chip in this game goes to the Chargers, and in addition, we suggest the UNDER 46.5 bet.
Look for a straight win on the Moneyline Chargers. If you put $100 on the Chargers at -214, you’ll be looking at a $46.73 win with a total payout of $143.73.
