NFL Betting Hot and Not
NFL Who’s Hot and Who’s Not – Super Bowl 50
It has become pretty obvious which two NFL teams remained hot this past Sunday with victories in the conference championships both straight-up and against the spread. The hotter of the two would have to be the 17-1 Carolina Panthers.
With Sunday’s 49-15 rout of Arizona in the NFC title game as three-point home favorites, they have now covered in 13 of 18 games this year. The Panthers have also been a solid bet on BetAnySports’ total line with seven of their last nine games going OVER the closing betting line. Carolina went 8-2 ATS in 10 home games this season and 5-3 ATS on the road. The total went OVER in 12 of those 18 games.
The Denver Broncos closed as three-point home underdogs in their showdown against New England in the AFC Championship and they prevailed by stopping a last-second two-point conversion to win that game 20-18. This was just the first time in their last six games they covered and if you go back to the Broncos’ 27-24 loss to Indianapolis on Nov. 8 as three-point road favorites, they are just 3-6-2 in their last 11 games. The total stayed UNDER BetAnySports’ 45-point betting line against the Patriots and it has now stayed UNDER in five of their last seven games. Despite an overall record of 8-7-3 ATS verse its 14-4 record SU, Denver has been a solid bet as an underdog this season at 4-0-1 ATS in five games.
When you breakdown some of the other betting trends for each of these teams heading into Super Bowl 50, you would find that Carolina is now 9-4 ATS in its last 13 postseason games and Denver is just 2-5-1 ATS in its last eight games in the postseason.
Both of these teams have gone 4-1 ATS in their last five games against a team with a SU winning record. The Panthers are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games following an ATS win, but the Broncos slip to 1-5 ATS in their last six games after covering in their previous outing.
When it comes to betting the total line, it has gone OVER in Carolina’s last four playoff games, but it has stayed UNDER in five of Denver’s last six games in the playoffs. It has gone OVER in 20 of the Panthers last 28 games against a team with a SU winning record, but it has stayed UNDER in five of the Broncos last seven games against a SU winning team.
