Yes, we know that this could very well be the swan song for Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, and if he wins Super Bowl 50, it would really be a storybook finish for him. But is that the only reason you would want to bet the Broncos on Sunday? We didn’t think it was. Hopefully we can help you out with some information that, if you are leaning toward Denver, might make you feel a little better about it. By the way, the action gets underway at 6:30 PM ET on Sunday from Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, CA, and even after the opening kickoff, Vietbet customers can continue to challenge the football betting odds in real time through the phenomenon known as Live Betting Extra.

In the football betting odds posted on Super Bowl 50 by the good people at Vietbet, Carolina is favored:
Carolina Panthers -5.5
Denver Broncos +5.5
Over 44.5 points -110
Under 44.5 points -110
Let’s start by issuing the challenge, as far as what the Carolina Panthers have to offer. You absolutely know that this team is going to run the football; in fact, in 16 out of their 18 games they have gone to the ground at least 30 times, and they lead the NFL in rushing attempts. Plus, you know that this team also feasts on turnovers, as they have created 48 of them on the part of opponents this season (including seven by the Arizona Cardinals in the NFC title game).
So without question, the Broncos are going to have to counteract those things, because they are certainly critical to Carolina’s potential path to victory. And we are happy to report that this team might be ready, willing and able to do so.
You can’t find a tougher team to run on than the Denver Broncos. These guys allowed the opposition to run for just 3.3 yards per carry this season, and only one individual opposing rusher (Jamaal Charles) has gone over the century mark against them. That was back in Week 2. Over their last nine games, they have allowed 100 rushing yards only twice, and only one time has a team rushed for more than 120 yards. That, in and of itself, is a stiff challenge for the Carolina offense.
Don’t underestimate what a big asset it is to have a defensive coordinator like Wade Phillips on hand. Almost everywhere he goes, his defenses wind up being among the best in the league. And as Vietbet patrons know, management reached out after the 43-8 embarrassment two years ago in the Super Bowl again Seattle and brought in some game-changers on the stop unit. This is the #1 defense in the league, allowing only 24.47 yards per drive.
Yes, Denver has turned the ball over more than all but two teams in the league, and a big part of that was the 17 interceptions sustained by Peyton Manning. But those who are most optimistic about Denver’s chances would say that part of the reason Manning could not get a lot of leverage on his throws was that he was suffering from a foot injury, which has been dealt with and recovered from. He has now gone 78 passes without an interception, and this offense, which admittedly is not explosive, is going to be committed to chewing up the clock. They can “shorten” the game, and if they can cut the turnovers to a minimum, they will frustrate Carolina.
Denver is very experienced at playing these close games; in fact, they have eleven wins this season by seven points or less, and have covered the last six times they were an underdog.
