Can Talib get an INT?
Aqib Talib has been one of the top cornerbacks in the NFL for some time. Will he make his presence known at Super Bowl 50?
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Carolina is currently a 5.5-point favorite for Sunday’s game with the Broncos, while the over/under total for the game has been set at 44 points. These two meet in Super Bowl 50 on Sunday at 6:30PM ET. The game will air live on CBS.
Talib has had a storied career, playing since 2008 and recording 30 interceptions over eight seasons. He is one of the top cornerbacks in the league right now and he could play a major role in Sunday’s Super Bowl. Oddsmakers have currently listed Talib’s odds to get an interception in this game at +250. His odds for multiple interceptions are set at +2500.
Talib has had three interceptions this season, but his last INT came back on Oct. 18 against the Browns. He also has actually yet to record an interception in his postseason career. On Sunday, Talib faces Cam Newton, who has thrown just 10 interceptions this season, which is a career low for him. Newton does have six postseason interceptions in five games over his career, including one this postseason. If the Broncos are able to continue to apply pressure like they did against New England, it could force Newton into some bad throws which opens the door for Talib to make a play.
