A recent Washington Post headline reads, "Sorry Broncos, Almost Everyone Betting on Panthers in Super Bowl 50" — and that's no exaggeration.
An overwhelming number of bettors have placed their money on Cam Newton and the Panthers — and as a result, the point spread has widened.

Twitter Nation also thinks Cam and company will spoil what could be Peyton Manning's last rodeo. But we managed to find some die-hard fans who actually think the Broncos will shock the world and win.
Here are our twenty favorites.
