Who Does Wall Street Think Will Win Super Bowl 50?
With Super Bowl 50 just a few hours away, who's everyone picking for the big game?
The Carolina Panthers bulldozed through the NFC. They went 15-1, led by near-unanimous MVP, quarterback Cam Newton. The Denver Broncos finished atop the AFC at 12-4, with a suffocating defense leading the way.
Peyton Manning will become the oldest quarterback in history to start a Super Bowl game, which could be the last game he ever plays. Newton could become the first Heisman trophy winner to win a Super Bowl.

The Panthers are favored by 5.5 points in Super Bowl 50, which takes place at Levi's Stadium in the heart of Silicon Valley. We asked some people around Wall Street what they think.
Susquehanna analyst Filippo Falorni and The Street columnist Brian Sozzi chose Denver. Luxury retail expert Kristin Bentz took the Broncos, and the over of 44 points. Meanwhile, Ron Insana took Denver by 13 points.
Citron Research's Andrew Left is taking the favorites, with Carolina coming out on top by two touchdowns. Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter also took the Panthers (by 13 points), saying, "Defense way too tough for Peyton, they shut Carson Palmer down, and pretty much everyone else this year."
What about you?
In a Twitter poll, we posed the same question. Forty-two percent picked Carolina to triumph over Denver (35 percent). Meanwhile, 23 percent of the 265 voters said they don't care.
Happy Super Bowl Sunday! Carolina is favored by 5.5 points over Denver. Who ya got? #SuperBowl50
