Moneyline Changes Since Super Bowl 50 Odds Opening Day
As you are probably aware by now, the money line odds have considerably drifted in favor of Denver since the Super Bowl 50 betting market was officially opened two weeks ago. Initially, the Denver money lines were pegged at a price of around +150, and expectedly, bettors were remotely interested or even tempted to wager on the Broncos at the time. Taking notice of that, the Major Sportsbooks responded swiftly by increasing Denver’s odds to around +175 or thereabouts, and the rest soon followed, bumping the price around +190 to +200 by January 31st. This seemingly sealed the deal with the sharp betting public, as the initial trends that had over 60 percent of the action on Carolina started to pound the opposite direction.
Of importance to note is that the Panthers opened at around -180, but that number moved down to anywhere between -230 and -250. This being the Super Bowl, that type of movement is actually not much of a surprise, given how the public betting is high on Cam Newton and the Panthers. As you’d expect, Carolina’s price, though raised up, hasn’t dissuaded its supporters from still loading up on the Panthers in the Moneyline.
As we speak, the Moneyline has seemingly settled around +190 or thereabouts for Denver and -230 for Carolina. As per our consensus reports, a little over 55 percent of the bettors are on the Carolina action, indicating that the Panthers are still getting the majority of the wagers, but Denver is equally picking up, no wander the percentage is down from the 60s.
Rejoinder of Super Bowl 50 Moneyline Betting
The unspoken general rule in Moneyline betting is that you should always assess the teams way before the lines open, doing a keen analysis of the trends and sort-of knowing where you stand, along with how the market will react once the lines are up. This way, the influx of changes are rhetoric from the tipsters don’t get to influence your decisions, but rather inform them appropriately. Unfortunately for many of us, the cat is already out of the bag and we are already obese with the tons of talks we’ve been swallowing hook-line-and-sinker, from Denver’s new uniform and what it means to the race-based talks about Newton.
The best you can therefore do now is to tune out the noise, focus purely on the betting trends, and then make a decision based on that. As mentioned earlier, there are tons of articles already done on both teams, so rather than repeat the content here, you’d be better off doing yourself a solid one by finding and reading them extensively until you are fully convinced of your best Super Bowl 50 Moneyline Pick.
