The Panthers are going to have a harder time attaching a chip to their shoulders for Super Bowl 50.
Via Ben Fawkes of ESPN.com, the Panthers have become the clear favorites for the NFL championship game against the Broncos, with the line moving from Carolina giving 3.5 points to the Panthers being favored by 5.5 points.
“I can’t remember a more one-sided betting Super Bowl,” William Hill US director of trading Nick Bogdanovich told Fawkes.
John Avello, the director race and sports operations at the Wynn and Encore, said that more than 80 percent of the bets have been placed on the Panthers giving 4.5 points.
Vegas has seen this movie before, recently. The Patriots were clear favorites over the Broncos, and the Broncos not only covered but won the game straight up.
And that will give Broncos plenty of ammunition for claiming all next week that no one believes in them.
