The odds are always good for sports fans, and especially for those who love the big game. On Sunday, February 4, the Denver Broncos will take on the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50. It will be a rematch of last year’s championship game, which the Broncos won in overtime on a touchdown pass from Peyton Manning to Demaryius Thomas.
The first half of this year’s Super Bowl will air on NBC, and then the second half on FOX. It will be a great chance for sports fans to tune in and see one of the biggest sporting events of the year. The game will be a sellout, and the tickets will go fast. So, let’s take a quick look at the odds and stats for the big game.
Betting on sports is a way of life for many people, and it’s a good way to make money. The lines for the Super Bowl will be changing hands as people make wagers on which team they think will win. The Broncos are the overwhelming favorites to win again, with online sportsbooks listing them as 3-to-1 odds favorites to repeat as champions. The Panthers are 7-to-1 longshots to win at less than 19/20 odds.
Last year’s Super Bowl was one of the most highly-rated games in TV history. The game was sold out, and the audience of 106.4 million people saw one of the greatest all-time football games. Led by a stellar performance from Manning and Thomas, the Broncos took out the top seed in the AFC, the Pittsburgh Steelers, in the last game of the year for good measure.
This year’s iteration of Super Bowl could be just as exciting. Both teams are excellent, and it will be intriguing to see how the season’s final few games play out. The stats are already in, and it looks like Manning will have a strong case for MVP honors yet again. It’s only February 4, and already the most popular sport in America is gearing up for its annual prime-time spectacular.
