Super Bowl Betting

Once again, the quarterbacks are grabbing all of the headlines ahead of Super Bowl 50 as young hot shot Cam Newton’s Carolina Panthers prepare to tangle with wily veteran Peyton Manning’s Denver Broncos in Levi’s Stadium on February 7. For Newton it’s an opportunity to cap off what will very likely be an MVP season, while the big game presents Peyton with a chance to properly end a legendary career and potentially ride into the sunset with a ring like former Broncos quarterback, John Elway.

2016 Super Bowl Betting

Once again, the quarterbacks are grabbing all of the headlines ahead of Super Bowl 50 as young hot shot Cam Newton's Carolina Panthers prepare to tangle with wily veteran Peyton Manning's Denver Broncos in Levi's Stadium on February 7. For Newton it's an opportunity to cap off what will very likely be an MVP season, while the big game presents Peyton with a chance to properly end a legendary career and potentially ride into the sunset with a ring like former Broncos quarterback, John Elway.

After the NFL Conference Championships the Panthers opened as 3.5-point favorites at most shops, but that line trended upwards immediately and reached -6 at some books just days after. The Panthers' 49-15 dismantling of the Arizona Cardinals certainly played a big part in that, however sports bettors shouldn't underestimate the Broncos.

Led by the top defense in the league, Denver gave last year's Super Bowl MVP Tom Brady fits in the AFC Conference Championship Game en route to topping the Pats by a score of 20-18. While Manning may be a shell of his former self, he's got a major edge on Newton in the experience department and it wouldn't surprise to anyone if he made some magic on the field once again with the eyes of the nation solely upon him.

Carolina ended the 2015 campaign as one of the top spread bets in the league at 11-5 ATS, while Denver was in the middle of the pack at 8-8 ATS. The Cats covered the spread in their two postseason tilts, with the Broncos going 1-0-1 ATS in the playoffs so far.

Books opened the total for the massive showdown at 45. Spearheaded by the dynamic Newton, Carolina has been a fantastic OVER bet in the playoffs by going above the closing total in its two appearances. That's what happens when you put a combined 80 points on the board in back-to-back contests.

The UNDER is trending for Gary Kubiak's club ahead of the matchup. The Broncos have cashed UNDER bets against Pittsburgh and New England in the postseason, and went 6-9-1 OVER/UNDER in the regular season.
