You can combine chart types in Excel.

For example, you could have an XY Scatter Chart for your data.
And then add three Line Charts to show the AVG , AVG+STD, and AVG-STD.

Here is an example with some random data.

The data are displayed as an XY scatter plot with points not lines.
The AVG and STD's are displayed as line with no points.

You could initially plot all of the data as points + lines.
Then select each data series on the plot to change the chart type.
In this case, all the series use XY types.
