Six of those underdogs have also covered the Super Bowl spread by winning outright against their favored opponents.

The Denver Broncos pulled off the cover and outright upset over the Carolina Panthers as 5-point dogs in their 24-10 smackdown of Cam Newton and company. The Patriots beat the Seahawks as a Pick ‘Em one year earlier in Super Bowl 49 one year after cashing in as a 2.5-point underdog against the Broncos in their stunning 43-8 blowout win in Super Bowl 48.

Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens also cashed in as underdogs – by winning outright in their thrilling 34-31 Super Bowl win over Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl 47. Eli Manning and the New York Giants covered the Super Bowl spread, by winning outright against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in Super Bowls 42 and 46.

Future Hall of Fame quarterback Drew Brees led the New Orleans Saints to the ATS cover as 5-point underdogs by beating Peyton Manning and the Colts in Super Bowl 44 while Kurt Warner helped Arizona cash in as a 7-point dog in their heartbreaking 27-23 loss to Big Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers in Super Bowl 43.
