For the 2nd game in a row, even after the Denver Broncos were written off as the underdogs even before the big game began, Gary Kubiak’s the coach of the Denver Broncos went head to head against a team of destiny the Carolina Panthers and they came out on top.
It was not implausible that the Denver Broncos could prevail in the Super Bowl 50 against the Carolina Panthers, but to win as they did with a score of 24 – 10, that was nearly unforeseeable. Out of the 74 ESPN football contributors who made their Super Bowl 50 picks, only 19 of these contributors picked the Denver Broncos, which is only 25.7 percent of the contributors. Trey Wingo was the football contributor who said that the Denver Broncos were going to win by more than a touchdown over the Carolina Panthers. As the Vegas prop on the Denver Broncos winning by more than 10.5 point had a line of +600. If you were to remove the implied odds from the line this would have suggested that the bookmakers saw the Denver Broncos with a 13.7 percent chance of winning by more than eleven points.
And even after these type of odds that is just what the Denver Broncos pulled off. It definitely was not the prettiest Super Bowl that was ever seen, but it did include some brilliant performances from the league’s two best defenses. Even if grouping them together just may sell the Denver Broncos short. Advance metrics suggest that the Denver Broncos were the best defense team in football by a very comfortable margin. During Super Bowl Sunday the Denver Broncos showed up and they delivered an awesome defensive performance as dominant as the one that they laid on the Seahawks two years prior.
