Panthers open as 3.5-point favorites


The participants for Super Bowl 50 have been set. The betting line could be fluid.

Via R.J. Bell of, Vegas has installed the Panthers as a 3.5-point favorite over the Broncos, with an over/under of 44.5 points.

Bell says that the early money from professionals has been placed on the Broncos, with the early money from amateur bettors landing on the Panthers.

It had been believed that the NFC champion would be a one-point favorite over the AFC champion. Carolina’s blowout win over the Cardinals undoubtedly played a role in the size of the opening line for the game to be played in two weeks.
