Despite playing at home the Denver Broncos are +3.5 point home underdogs against an upstart New England Patriots team. The latest Super Bowl online betting odds at the above sportsbooks have the Patriots favored to win the AFC Championship game and repeat their Super Bowl appearance.
It’s the 17th meeting of Peyton Manning and Tom Brady as the Denver Broncos have edged out the Pittsburgh Steelers late in the Sunday afternoon game on CBS.
Tom Brady and the Patriots will host the AFC Championship Game, forcing the Broncos to travel across two time zones to Gillette Stadium next Sunday.
Questions swirl in regards to Peyton Manning and his abilities to lead the Denver Broncos’ offense.
In Manning’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, it seems like his wide receivers have uncharacteristically dropped the future Hall of Famer’s passes, making Manning’s stats look poor.
Nevertheless, the Broncos did enough on defense to contain the Steelers offensive attack while successfully moving the ball using the running game.
The Patriots feature one of the most potent passing attacks in the league. Now that Rob Gronkowski and Julian Edelman are both back on the field, Tom Brady has gained access to his most reliable targets at the most important part of the season.
The Denver Broncos have been assigned 7/2 wagering odds to win Super Bowl 50 while the Patriots are more favored at 9/4.
Regardless of the outcome, the 17th overall meeting between Peyton Manning and Tom Brady may not only be the most epic to date, it could be the last considering the fact that Manning could retire in the next few seasons.
