Chargers are Vegas favorites for Los Angeles relocation

Sin City is getting involved in the NFL's race to Los Angeles -- and oddsmakers favor the Chargers.

San Diego's football team is the favorite to land in L.A., according to online sports book Bookmaker. They're leading the pack at -140 odds. 

Up second? The St. Louis Rams (+115) and the Oakland Raiders (+1200).

Considering the dual Raiders-Chargers plan, those are certainly interesting odds. It would seem logical that the Chargers and Raiders would relocate together and have comparable odds.

St. Louis' odds appear to be the best, given the current climate. Rams owner Stan Kroenke owns the Hollywood Park site, has the money to smooth out the opposition, and has a strong backing in the area.

Maybe, as always, bookmakers know the odds better than the rest.
