Both of these teams have had great seasons, so many fans are taking many factors in consideration before they bet on Super Bowl 50.

Denver Broncos Betting Odds
Denver is currently set as a +4.5 point underdog in Super Bowl 50. The total for this game is set at 45 right now! The general public seems to like Carolina -4.5 to start which could shift this line before February 7th comes.
Why Bet on Denver Broncos +4.5
There are many great reasons you should bet on the Denver Broncos +4.5 in Super Bowl 50. First, Denver led the entire NFL in defense. They are stingy on defense and should really make it tough on Cam Newton and company. As a side note, teams that led the NFL in defense have went 9-2 in Super Bowl games in the past. That’s a good sign for Denver.
Secondly, they are led by one of the greatest quarterbacks of all-time – Peyton Manning! With Manning under center you have to think Denver will keep this game close. It’s been rumored that Manning may retire after this season. He would want nothing more than a Super Bowl victory before you goes out.
Lastly, it’s never a bad idea to take the points in a highly competitive Super Bowl game. 4.5 points is a lot of points to give a team as talented as Denver. Their defense may shut down Carolina and at least keep the game within a field goal’s reach.
