LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) - Despite losing tight end Antonio Gates to a four-game suspension, the Chargers' Super Bowl odds have actually improved over the past week.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Chargers' 2016 Super Bowl odds are currently 40/1, up from 50/1 when the Gates suspension was first announced. The tight end will miss the first four games of the season for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs.

After drafting running back Melvin Gordon in the first round in April, some believe the Chargers could be sleeper Super Bowl contenders this season. They also added receivers Steve Johnson and Jacoby Jones, guard Orlando Franklin, offensive tackle Joe Barksdale and cornerback Patrick Robinson.

If Gordon can help take pressure off quarterback Philip Rivers then the Chargers could challenge within the AFC West. Rivers is capable of carrying a team but Gordon will play a key role in San Diego's success this season.
