Broncos love being an underdog

Super Bowl 50: Broncos perfect vs. the spread as an underdog this season

We are one week away from Super Bowl 50 and the Denver Broncos remain a sizable underdog in its matchup with the Carolina Panthers.

According to oddsmakers at RealBets, Carolina is currently holding steady as a 5.5-point favorite for Super Bowl 50 against the Broncos. The over/under total is currently listed at 45 points. These two meet on Sunday, Feb. 7 at 6:30PM ET from Levi’s Stadium. The game will air live on CBS.

Despite having the top record in the AFC this season, plenty have doubted the Broncos on the road to Super Bowl 50. A lackluster offense all season led many to believe they just didn’t have what it takes to reach the Super Bowl, let alone win it. But, despite ranking just 19th in points scored, the Broncos have surged to the AFC Championship being a defense that allows the fewest yards in the NFL.

Being the underdog isn’t something completely foreign to the Broncos. Denver has been an underdog five times throughout this season and the playoffs and they are a perfect 5-0 at the betting window in those games. They picked up a 31-24 win over the Chiefs in KC as a 3-point underdog on Sept. 17. Denver then won 29-10 at home over the Packers as a 2.5-point dog. The Broncos were a 2.5-point underdog at home vs. the Patriots on Nov. 29, but won 30-24 in OT. They were also an underdog of 7.5 points at Pittsburgh on Dec. 20, but lost by just 7 at 34-27. Then, the Broncos were a 3-point home underdog against the Patriots in last week’s AFC Championship, but of course won 20-18. Is Denver relishing this role as a 5.5-point underdog in the Super Bowl? Will they make it 6-0 against the spread?
