Carolina Panthers Open as -4.5 Point Favorites

The opening line for Super Bowl 50 has the Carolina Panthers listed as -4.5 point favorites. What does this mean? This means the oddsmakers expect this to be a close game. They set the number in between a field goal and a touchdown.

Cam Newton has led the Carolina Panthers to an impressive 17-1 season. They have looked nearly invincible all season long. For Denver, Peyton Manning is back and looks better than he has all season long. They have had some bumps along the road but come in at 14-4 on the season.

The total for this game is currently set at 45 points!

Why Bet on the Carolina Panthers -4.5

Carolina backers have been crushing the books all season long. The Panthers are 13-5 ATS on the season and 7-3 ATS over their last 10. They simple have been beating teams by a lot of points.

The Panthers have had a simply amazing season.

The Panther defense has been lights out all season long and should be able to get after Peyton Manning and company. On the offensive side, their O-line is one of the best in the NFL giving Cam Newton all kinds of time under center. Cam has been playing MVP caliber football and we expect nothing less in Super Bowl 50.
On the flip side, the Denver Broncos are just 9-8 ATS on the season. They struggle to put teams away. Peyton Manning has really shown signs of aging this season. The Broncos defense is as good as they come but they will have to figure out how to defend Cam Newton. It’s going to be a tough task for Denver in this game.

Super Bowl 50 Final Score Prediction

We have listed many reasons why the Carolina Panthers should win this game. With the opening line at just -4.5, it seems like a very nice bet to place on the Carolina Panthers. The Panthers defense should really make Peyton Manning uncomfortable in this game. And once the momentum shifts towards Carolina, it’s over!
Our final score prediction for this game is Carolina 31 and Denver 17.
