Previous Super Bowl Updates
As of Friday, January 29, most shops are now offering the Panthers as 6-point favorites in Super Bowl 50. The Panthers opened -3.5 at most outlets so that's a pretty big move since post.
Patient Broncos backers who have waited for this exact situation will have been rewarded. Accoriding to some sources, a whopping 77 percent of wagers are being placed on the Panthers.
The total remains at 45 as of the time of writing.

The Denver Broncos are on track to be the biggest underdog in the Super Bowl in the last six years and could very well be the largest pups since the New York Giants were 12.5-point dogs against the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII.
The majority of shops opened the Broncos as 3.5-point underdogs but action has forced books to adjust the spread with a variety of numbers up across most outlets. The Broncos are being offered anywhere from +4.5 to +6 depending on where you shop, coming very close to the +6.5 of the Arizona Cardinals back in Super Bowl XLIII.
As far as the total is concerned, most books are offering 45, though there are some 45.5's out there - particularly in Las Vegas.

Betting on the Super Bowl is the most common sports wager in America, but many believe that you can only bet the NFL title game after the teams are set. Truth is, there are Super Bowl betting odds all season long as online sportsbooks offer future bets on every team.
Preseason favorites start as early Super Bowl picks and injuries and hot streaks shape the line all season. By the time the Super Bowl rolls around in February, the lines on all the teams will have morphed and changed dozens of times. And shortly after a champ is crowned, Super Bowl odds go up for next year’s game!
Super Bowl Point Spread
And the spread is not where betting ends, it’s just where it starts. Sportsbooks offer literally thousands of Super Bowl prop bets and variations on the traditional NFL point spread, over under, and moneyline.
Bet the coin toss? Sure why not? Bet how many times the quarterback’s hot new girlfriend will be shown during the telecast? No sweat. Which Super Bowl ad will have the highest Nielsen rating? There are Super Bowl props on that too.
Super Bowl Bonuses
With so much wagering and so many betting options, sportsbooks do their best to help fans boost their bankroll before Super Bowl Sunday.
Many will offer special perks and deposit bonuses to turn your $100 deposit into $50 in bonus cash. Others will offer free bets if you place a certain number of wagers or deposit a certain amount of money. Check out the latest bonus specials.
Super Bowl Contests
And for bettors who like to have just a few wagers on the go but who love the challenge of a Super Bowl Contest, many shops will offer props games where you pick many outcomes. Who will score the first TD? Will the longest field goal be over or under 44.5 yards? Which QB will have the most passing yards? These comprise some of the typical questions in free Super Bowl competitions offered by sportsbooks such as [custom:bovada-link] and others.
