According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, Manning and the Broncos opened as 4-point underdogs versus the Panthers for Super Bowl 50. Some sports books have kept the line at 4, while others have moved the number to Carolina -4.5.

When Manning went to his first Super Bowl in 2007, his Colts were 7-point favorites over the  Bears in Miami, FL. When he returned to the Super Bowl three years later (again in Miami), the Colts were 5-point favorites versus the Saints. And when he took the Broncos to Super Bowl XLVIII in East Rutherford, NJ, Denver was a 2.5-point favorite over the Seahawks.

Wagers are already flooding in on the Panthers to cover the spread in Super Bowl 50. Our NFL Public Betting Page shows that 79% of betting tickets are on Carolina after Cam Newton and Co. destroyed Arizona 49-15 as a 3-point home favorite in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday. The Panthers went an impressive 15-1 in the regular season and 11-5 against the spread, then won and covered in both of their playoff matchups to reach Super Bowl 50.
