2016 NFL Superbowl Betting Tips

February 5, 2016 by Posted in NFL Tips


The biggest day in American sport has almost arrived with Superbowl 50 set to be one of the most exciting and interesting matches with a lot of stories behind the scenes. It could potentially be quarterback Peyton Manning’s last match of his career whilst his opposition quarterback Cam Newton is looking to begin a legacy of his own. Find our 2016 Superbowl Betting Tips below.

Denver Broncos vs Carolina Panthers (Monday 10.30am AEDT)

The road to the Superbowl was very different for these two sides despite both teams finishing in the first seed in their respective conferences.

Manning missed more than half the season through injury and only returned to action in the final week of the regular season and his performance was strong enough to see him start in the playoffs against Pittsburgh. However, for the first time in his career he has been forced to rely on his sides defence to earn victories as the injuries throughout his career and his age is beginning to hamper his performances. There is still question marks surrounding his arm strength and whether he can make the passes to march his team down the field and it is a must that they are successful with the run this Monday.

Meanwhile the Panthers surprised everyone by picking up impressive victories right from the start of the season. Cam Newton established himself as the leader of his team and led his side to comeback victories in a lot of matches including at Seattle against the Seahawks. Newton threw for 35 touchdowns and ran for 10 whilst only throwing 10 interceptions this season. He established himself as a pocket passer whilst he still has the potential to burn the defence by choosing to run the football. His partnership with tight end Greg Olsen has improved whilst wide receiver Tedd Ginn has proven a constant threat down the field.

The Broncos defence has been dominant this season and a lot of it has came about from their defensive line being able to constantly pressure the opposition quarterback. Von Miller and DeMarcuse Ware have been beasts all season and especially in the Championship game in their victory against the Patriots. However, the side hasn’t came up against a quarterback as athletic as Newton and if they attempt to pressure him too much he will find a gap and break out of the pocket and run for a big gain. The defence needs to contain him as much as possible whilst forcing him to not have as much of an impact on the game.

Unfortunately for the Broncos that is easier said than done and with the Broncos struggling to score points themselves we can see this match turning into an easy victory for the Panthers. The running game of the Panthers is strong and they keep it balanced – this will keep the Broncos defence on the field for long periods of time and force them to get tired, whilst the Broncos won’t be able to afford any 3 and outs.

The Panthers have been notorious for fast starts this season and if they get out to an early lead it will be incredibly difficult for the Broncos to pull it back in. The Panthers will clear the line in this one and win by at least a touchdown.

Superbowl MVP

The MVP of the Superbowl has a history of going to the quarterback of the winning team and we can see it happening that way again this year. If the Panthers are to win Cam Newton is likely to play a starring role as he impacts the match so much with his passing and his running. He always seems to come up big at the important moments and is clearly a player that is full of confidence.

However, if you are looking for a roughie to back then go no further than the Panthers line backer Luke Kuechly. A crowd favourite, Kuechly leds the Panthers for tackles made this season whilst he is also known for making important interceptions. If he can make an impact on the defensive side of things than he could easily be crowned the MVP of the Superbowl.
