Why Bet On The Carolina Panthers To Win Super Bowl 50
The Carolina Panthers are the highest scoring team in the NFL. Because of an offense that averages 366.9 total yards per game, 146.2 of those yards come via the rush, the Panthers score over 31 points per game on average. That’s a lot of points. Based on the current spread of Carolina -6, the Panthers are projected to at least score 26 points in Super Bowl 50. If you think they’ll get their average of 31, you’re not alone. A lot of football handicappers feel that Carolina’s offense will be too much for Denver’s defense.
Why Bet On The Denver Broncos To Win Super Bowl 50
Denver, surprisingly, has a vanilla offense. Yes, this is the same team that broke the record for most points scored during the regular season in the 2013-2014 NFL Season. Their QB is still Peyton Manning. Denver only averages 22.2 points per game. That’s a full 9 points less per game than what Carolina averages. Denver can move the football but getting into the end zone is another matter. Denver scored 23 versus Pittsburgh and 20 versus New England in their 2 playoff wins.
My Super Bowl 50 Final Score Prediction
The Broncos are going to try and control the clock while Carolina will try and push the pace. Denver’s defense yields a league leading 283 yards per game on average. Opponents rush for only 83.6 yards per game. Opponents pass for only 199.6 yards per game on average.
Carolina may or may not hit the 20-point mark in Super Bowl 50. The Atlanta Falcons held the Panthers to only 13 points in a stunning 20 to 13 win over Carolina. They beat the Panthers by containing Cam Newton while giving up the rush. Denver may not have to give up the run since their edge rushers, Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware, are so good at containment. It looks like this could be a low-scoring affair with Denver providing the perfect blue print for the upset win.
My Super Bowl 50 final score prediction is Denver 23, Carolina 20.
