How Panther and Broncos Defied the Odds This Season

Weeks before the 2016 NFL season kickoff, no one dare to put the Panthers as betting favorites, and the idea of having Carolina as your Super Bowl pick was simply ridiculous. The Panthers kicked off the season as 60-1 to win the Super Bowl 50 and now lead the odds to win it all. Despite the negative predictions, the team had a strong and convincing run, finishing the season with a 15-1 record and ended up winning the NFC championship with a strong 49-15 win over the Arizona Cardinals.

The story was quite similar for the Broncos, especially for 39-year old veteran Peyton Manning, who many football fans and bettors thought it was done due his long history of injuries and problems. But against all expectations, Manning was able to lead his team to another winning round, closing the regular season action with a 12-4 record and surprising bettors with wins over Pittsburgh in the Divisional Round and the New England Patriots in the 2016 AFC Championship.

For Broncos’ QB Peyton Manning, the game brings a chance for redemption. The 39-year-old player will become the oldest quarterback to start a Super Bowl and the sixth quarterback ever to start four Super Bowls. But he’s won just a single championship since coming into the league in 1998. For the Panthers, 26-year-old Cam Newton will look to become only the third Heisman-winning quarterback to win a Super Bowl.
Opening Odds vs. Current Odds

Opening Spread: Panthers -3.5
Current: Panthers -6

Broncos and Panthers have faced each other only four times — in 1997, 2004, ’08 and ’12 — with Denver winning three of those games. Despite the positive record against Carolina, the Broncos opened as 4-point dogs on the Super Bowl 50 odds. The total odds for Super Bowl 50 opened at 45.5 points at on Sunday night. The money line is Panthers -200 and Broncos +170, meaning that bettors who wagered on the Panthers would bet $200 to win $100, while Broncos bettors would wager $100 to win $170.
