13 NFL Experts Who Picked Broncos to Beat Panthers in Super Bowl 50
Yesterday, we highlighted thirty NFL experts who predicted the Panthers would beat the Broncos in Super Bowl 50.
We could have featured a lot more. The overwhelming majority of sports pundits thought Carolina would thrash Denver in the big game — including our own prognosticator, Brian Badzmierowski, who has now posted about how he was wrong (but not about everything).
Turns out, though, that some pickers actually gave the Broncos the nod. Not nearly as many — but we found thirteen that accurately foresaw Denver finishing on top.
It's good information to have, since it'll give us a better idea to whom we should pay attention the next time the Broncos are in the Super Bowl.
Count down the photo-illustrated baker's dozen below.
