2nd Best Bet: Panthers down on the first half
The decision is not entirely clear but the data is crushing. To sum it up, the Panthers are their best ever and the Broncos are not. Cam Newton is in his best years with his a record breaking performance, Manning is 39, about to retire and stats to the downside. Panthers hold the best offense and historically best offense beats best defense. The Panthers do have some serious concerns with defense injuries, but this is leveled with the not so strong Broncos offense. It would take a miracle for the Broncos to turn this around, so place your bet now:
Panthers Super Bowl Predictions
The Carolinas couldn’t be happier as previewed during last Friday’s Panthers Pride Rally in their hometown after 17 out of 18 games won during the entire season. This will be their second Super Bowl ever, a championship they have never won before. 12 years ago they faced New England Patriots and lost 32-29. Defense has been a dominant factor to win the regular season and the NFC title, but take note of starting WLB Thomas Davis and S Roman Harper (both are team leaders) went down with injuries. A piece of data that can fracture their backbone on the final game against the Broncos.
Cam newton Predictions
Quarterback Cam Newton played his best season so far with the Panthers breaking NFL records. Newton produced 45 TD´s (35 passing, 10 rushing) and 636 rushing yards all season. Definitely the most popular choice to win the MVP award.
But Cam Newton isn’t the only player of worthy, 10 other Panthers were picked to play during the Pro Bowl. Luke Kuechly is one of the best linebackers in the NFL right now.
Carolina Panthers Bet
The Panthers are a fierce team, not as complete as the Patriots were on other seasons that took them to win the Super Bowl, but from 39 game they began losing they produced a turnover and won. So do not be afraid if they begin low during the first half and pick up their game as the Super Bowl advances. Still, statistics show that only 4 teams in the past have won the Super Bowl with similar Panther´s average numbers during the regular season.
Panthers Favorites: For sportsbooks the Carolina Panthers are strong favorites to win Super Bowl 50 with 3/1 odds in general. There is a lot of confidence on Cam Newton for the most part.

Broncos Super Bowl Predictions
The Broncos have a bigger Super Bowl tradition than the Panthers and that really counts when it comes to inspiration and believing it can be done one more time. Along with the Dallas Cowboys, New England Patriots, and the Pittsburgh Steelers they have 8 Super Bowl appearances in total.
From this glorious Super Bowl tradition we cannot leave out their Super Bowl 48 fiasco just two years ago. The Broncos were crushed 43-3 by the Seattle Seahawks on an awkward game, Peyton Manning didn’t seem to be himself and failed over and over again to perform a successful pass. During that time the Denver team had scored the most points in NFL history in the season, 606.
So what is different from back then? In all honesty, their stats have moved to the downside instead of improving, for the most part regarding offense.
Peyton Manning Predictions
Peyton Manning is far from his best moments and as Prop Bets go it will be likely he will retire after the Super Bowl 50, the most exotic prop bets are trying to figure out the when and how he will do it. Do you think he will become a rapper with his brother? Time will tell. The player now has a 13-13 record in postseason games, and after so many Super Bowl appearances he has only managed to win one. For the past 9 years he has been in the chase for the second ring and lost 2 Super Bowl games in the journey. This season stats speak about a 9 quarter stretch without a TD pass in the AFC championship game, and multiple TD’s in 4 games during the season.
Denver Broncos Betting Tip
The best of the Broncos, Defense. Their offense has diminished in explosiveness compared to other seasons, but what brought them to the Super Bowl 50 is their high class defense and that was proof during the AFC title game against the New England Patriots. During this game they rushed 99 yards, just one away from breaking the 100 line, and they did it 12 times this season.
Not likely to win the Super Bowl but they do have a chance.
Super Bowl 50 Betting Picks
As usual, best offense meets best defense. The Panthers seem like the obvious choice with their 500 points (145 more than the Broncos) and MVP expected player Cam Newton. Bronco’s super-star defense allowed the fewest yards, fewest passing yards, fewest rushing yards and recorded the most sacks (52) all season long. History tells us that Best Offense beats best Defense during the Super Bowl, and this has been true in recent Super Bowls.
So are the Panthers the best choice? The answer could be easily yes, they are the best pick by far if it wasn’t for their recent injuries. What made the Panthers so complete is their superior offense but strong defense, during the playoffs games DE Jared Allen, CBs Charles Tillman and Bene Benwikere were all injured, and in the championship game Davis and Harper. That leaves Kuechly and CB Josh Norman to block a 39 year old Manning. They are also some of the best pass defenders in the championship.
That makes the call a little harder to make, most probably the 3/1 odds in favor of the Panthers are not as precise as sportsbooks claim. The game is more even than they want us to believe, still with the Panthers a little ahead.
- So bet on the Panthers to win if you want to be conservative.
- Bet on the Broncos to win for a probable longshot with value.
None of these bets seem to be clear enough to take, we personally like the longshot bet considering the problems in the Panthers defense, but considering the un-explosiveness in the Broncos offense that could not be a considerable weakness. So we pick the Panthers to win, just because they have only lost 1 game in the entire season, which says a lot.
