|The NFL Conference finals are almost upon us and some surprising betting trends have emerged according to online sportsbook, SportingbetUSA. |
The Panthers are seemingly the punters choice for betting value at 4-1 in this weekend’s conference finals. A Panthers victory this weekend and then in the penultimate game in Detroit is now looking even sweeter for those pundits who got in on their 25-1 preseason odds.
However, before they get to Detroit, Carolina heads to Starbucks country to face the Seahawks for their 4th road game in a row and, more significantly for SportingbetUSA customers, their 4th straight cover.
Tony Delgado of SportingbetUSA.com said, “The linemakers opened Seattle at –6, but that number was pounded hard down to –3.5 and bettors like to ride a winner. But remember, experience is on the Panthers’ side, as 23 of the current team played in the Super Bowl two years ago.”
The AFC representative for Super Bowl XL will be decided in the first game of the weekend in Colorado, as the Broncos host the impressive Steelers.
Delgado said, ‘Last week, a lot of people were jumping off the Colts bandwagon, taking Denver against New England on Saturday. The Steelers are talented, but Denver’s defensive line is far superior to either Cincinnati’s or Indy’s, and I don’t see Parker or Bettis doing much.’
