Super Bowl 50 has been set as we will see the Carolina Panthers take on the Denver Broncos to claim the biggest prize in football.
Cam Newton and the Panthers absolutely crushed the Arizona Cardinals at Bank of America Stadium, while the Broncos - guided by a significantly younger-looking Peyton Manning - managed to hold on and triumph over Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.
But, thanks to their demolition of the Cardinals, as well as their impressive 15-1 regular season record, it is Carolina who are going into the Super Bowl as favorites to claim the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

According to a report from ESPN, the Westgate SuperBook opened proceedings by making the Panthers a 5.5-point favorite to deny Manning his second Super Bowl ring on February 7.
Others bookmakers went in a bit lower, with William Hill and CG Technology's Nevada books each going with Panthers at -3.5. That seems to be the consensus at this point.
According to R.J. Bell of Pregame.com, via ProFootballTalk, there is a clear split between what amateur and professional bettors are putting on.
"Bell says that the early money from professionals has been placed on the Broncos, with the early money from amateur bettors landing on the Panthers."
Whatever happens next Sunday we are bound to be in for a great game at Levi's Stadium, the Panthers look to land their first ever Super Bowl win while Manning could potentially end his career on a high - if he decides to bow out from the game.
