According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Carolina is now a 6-point favorite in Sunday’s game with the Broncos, while the over/under total has been set at 45.5 points. These two meet on Sunday, Feb. 7 at 6:30PM ET from Levi’s Stadium. The game will air live on CBS.

When it comes to the receiving odds, the Broncos have two of the top three favorites as Demaryius Thomas is listed at +300 to have the most yards while Emmanuel Sanders is at +325. Carolina’s Greg Olsen comes in with +300 odds to win.

Thomas was the leading receiver for Denver this season, catching 105 passes for 1,304 yards and six touchdowns. He averaged 81.5 yards per game and 12.4 yards per catch. Sanders caught 76 passes for 1,135 yards and six scores. He averaged 75.7 yards per game and 14.9 yards per catch. Surprisingly, despite being in the slot and the smaller of the two, Sanders had more yards per catch. In the postseason, Sanders has 10 catches for 147 yards while Thomas has just six receptions for 52 yards. If Denver is to have success on offense, those two will certainly have to play some role. Peyton Manning has had two weeks to get as healthy and strong as he can, so there should be some ability to move the ball in the air, at least early in the game.
