History Of Super Bowl Betting Lines
This year's Super Bowl in Santa Clara, California between the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos will be the 50th edition of the great American sporting event. Carolina will be looking to win their first Super Bowl title having lost Super Bowl 38 in their only previous trip to the Big Dance. Meanwhile Denver will be competing in their eighth Super Bowl, hoping to add a third Lombardi Trophy to their cabinet .
Super Bowl 50 Betting Odds
Carolina -5 vs Denver +5, O/U 44 pts.
The opening line for Super Bowl 50 was Carolina -4.5, after their impressive win over Arizona in the NFC Championship game. It sees a run now of seven straight Super Bowls where the betting line has been within a touchdown, with 25 of the previous 43 Super Bowls seeing a favourite of 7 points or greater.
The line for Super Bowl 50 has fluctuated between Carolina -3.5 and Carolina -6, but appears to be settling now at the -5 with money coming all week for the Panthers. With Denver QB Peyton Manning playing in what will surely be his last game in the NFL, there will no doubt be a flood of sentimental money for the underdog Broncos in the days leading up to the game. Will that money tighten the line or will the sharp money come for the Panthers?
The Over/Under points total is currently at 44 pts. This is the lowest points total since the Packers met the Steelers in Super Bowl 45. This was to be expected with two superb defences facing off in Super Bowl 50 .
