NFL: Superb scorer double offer for Super Bowl Sunday
Paul Chambers | February 6, 2016
The NFL season reaches its exciting climax with Super Bowl 50 in Santa Clara this Sunday, where the league will crown its champion at Levi’s Stadium this weekend – and you too could be a winner!
Here we break down the outstanding value of Coral’s touchdown scorer double bet.
Cam Newton and Demaryius Thomas both score a TD – 7/2
Carolina Panthers star quarterback Cam Newton may well be the most dominant player in the NFL right now.
“SuperCam” (as he is nicknamed) is the runaway favourite to win the league’s Most Valuable Player award at the NFL Awards ceremony on Saturday night, after he put together a fantastic season for the Panthers.
At 6ft 5in tall and weighing 245lb, the athletic Newton has both pace and power, which he combines with masterful misdirection in order to make defenders miss. These qualities make Newton the ultimate dual-threat player at his position in the NFL.
In the 2015/16 season Newton has rushed for a total of 12 touchdowns. The ten touchdowns he scored in the regular campaign ranks as the joint-second most by any player in the league, and first among all quarterbacks. He has five scores in his last four appearances.
That red-hot run of form includes two pivotal touchdowns in the Panthers’ 49-15 rout of Arizona in the NFC Championship game. Indeed, so important has Newton’s contribution been to Carolina that he has personally accounted for 50 per cent of the entire team’s offense (touchdowns plus assists) in their 18 games this season!
For all of these reasons Newton is priced by Coral at just 11/10 to score anytime in the Super Bowl. However, it should be noted that this represents a joint-market-best price at the time of writing.
Meanwhile, Denver Broncos’ star wide receiver Demaryius Thomas is the joint-favourite to score for his side in Coral’s anytime touchdown scorer market.
Thomas was the go-to wideout for his team in 2015, catching 105 passes for over 1,300 yards in the regular season (ranked first for the Broncos). A third of those yards were picked up after the catch, which demonstrates his elusiveness and ability to eke out crucial gains for his team.
Thomas is a dynamic playmaker capable of hurting the opposition from anywhere on the field, and this can be seen in the three touchdowns of 40-plus yards that he has scored this season.
This big-play ability could come in crucial in the Super Bowl. The Carolina defense has a weakness for deep passing plays. And with the Panthers thin at the defensive back positions due to injury, they could find it hard to contain Thomas.
Coral have priced Demaryius Thomas at 6/4 to score anytime on Sunday. However, as with Newton, this is a market-leading price for the Anytime Touchdown Scorer market.
By pairing Newton and Thomas together for this anytime touchdown scorer double at an enhanced price, Coral are offering outstanding value to their customers – this is an offer which simply should not be missed!
