Super Bowl 50 Odds, Line: Panthers now 5.5-point favorite over Broncos
The Super Bowl odds are on the move again, with the Panthers giving 5.5 points now after opening as 4.5-point favorites.
It shouldn't be a tremendous surprise: nearly 80 percent of the public money is currently on the Panthers when it comes to against-the-spread bets.
Most sportsbooks detailed a huge initial rush of money on the Broncos when the line opened with the Panthers as 5.5-point favorites, causing the number to head back down, as low as 4 points.
What followed was significant money on Carolina, with very little action on the Broncos.
"I can't remember a more one-sided betting Super Bowl," William Hill US's director of trading Nick Bogdanovich told ESPN.
As a result, books are moving the line higher and higher, although it stands to reason the Panthers might max out giving 6 points.
And apparently it's not making a difference.
"We're at Broncos +6 and nobody cares," says Steve Mikkelson @atlantiscasino sportsbook. "It's still not bringing back any Denver bets."— Jason Logan (@CoversJLo) January 28, 2016
A bigger swing to 7 points (aka, a full touchdown) would likely cause a rush of cash on the Broncos but at this point maybe Vegas is fine with things evening out a little bit.
