Bet The Carolina Panthers at -3.5 In The Super Bowl 1st Half…
The Panthers are a first half team. Against Seattle in the Divisional Round, Carolina ran up the score in the first half. The Seahawks found themselves down 0 to 31 after the first 30 minutes of that game. The Panthers repeated their first half dominance in the NFC Championship Game. They demolished Arizona in the first quarter. The Panthers were up 17 to 0 after the first quarter. By halftime, Carolina had a huge 24 to 7 lead.
Bet The Denver Broncos at +3.5 In The Super Bowl 1st Half…
Denver isn’t as good at winning the first half as Carolina is. The Broncos were down by a point in their 23 to 16 win over Pittsburgh after the first half. Denver scored 9 points in the first half in that game while the Steelers scored 10 points. In the AFC Championship, Denver took a 17 to 9 lead into halftime. The Broncos could score only 3 points in the second half. Those 3 points proved to be just enough since the Broncos beat the Patriots 20 to 18.
Super Bowl 50 First Half Final Score Prediction
Carolina was not only a first half covering juggernaut during the playoffs, they were also a first half covering juggernaut in their 12 games of the regular season. The Panthers went an impressive 9-2-1 against the spread in the first half in their final 12 NFL regular season games.
The only first half they didn’t lose was on Oct. 18 versus Seattle. That game took place in Seattle. Cam Newton rallied the Panthers to a 27 to 23 win after Carolina found itself down 10 to 7 at halftime.
Unless Denver finds a way to break the incredibly strong trend of Carolina winning the first half, the Panthers should easily cover the first half spread in Super Bowl 50. I’m going with the Panthers at -3.5.
My final halftime score prediction is Carolina 13, Denver 3.
