Cam Newton Prop Bets Predictions
Which one of the dozens of prop bets offered for Cam Newton in Super Bowl 50 gives bettors the best chance to cash?
Below are a list of prop bets and odds centered on Newton for Super Bowl 50. The odds are courtesy of oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv.
The question is: Where is the value? All of the odds are based of Newton's averages from the regular season. It's not as if oddsmakers made mistakes and bettors now have an opportunity to cash in on multiple prop bets involving Newton.
So this is what we do: Pick one. Pick one prop bet that gives you the most value and then chuck the rest so that you don't wind up contradicting yourself on one of your other Super Bowl 50 wagers (which is a mistake that some novice bettors make because they see all the props and want to bet them all).
The prop bet with the most value in my eyes is the, "Cam Newton Total Rushing yards Over/Under," which has been set at 43.5. Newton rushed over 41 yards in only nine of 18 games this season so there's value in taking the under 43.5.
The Broncos also had one of the league's best run defenses this season and Wade Phillips will no doubt put together a sound game plan in order to limit Newton's production on the ground. Many bettors will jump on the over thinking that they'll cash on one big Newton run, which could happen. But if Denver focuses on bottling Newton up, then he should finish shy of that 43.5 and you'll cash on the under.
