Over the course of two games in the postseason, Cam Newton has 3 TD passes for an average of 1.5 TD passes. Based on the aforementioned numbers, betting on 2 TD passes seems to be the most sensible option, particularly when <a href="" target="_blank" title="Review Why Not To Rely On Broncos' Defense">considering the Denver defense</a> that tops the league and allows just 18.5 points against this season.</p> <p><strong>NFL Picks: 2 TD Passes at +190</strong></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Total Touchdown Passes Cam Newton</strong></p> <ul> <li><span style="font-size:14px">OVER 1 ½ (-165)</span></li> <li><span style="font-size:14px">UNDER 1 ½ (+135)</span></li> </ul> <p><strong>NFL Betting Verdict: </strong>This market is not too far off from the previous market previewed in which we determined Cam Newton has averaged 2 TDS in the regular season and 1.5 TDs in the postseason. It’s a tossup as such, but as we’ve tipped Cam Newton to score 2TDS in the above market, we’re following up with an OVER 1.5 pick here.</p> <p><strong>NFL Picks: </strong>Over 1.5 (-165)</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>What Will Cam Newton Do First?</strong></p> <ul> <li><span style="font-size:14px">Throw a Touchdown Pass           -200</span></li> <li><span style="font-size:14px">Throw an Interception                +160</span></li> </ul> <p><strong>NFL Betting Verdict:</strong> Unlike the <a href="" target="_blank" title="Review Manning QB Props">NFL odds for Peyton Manning in this category</a>, expectations are more favorable on Cam Newton to score rather than boggle a play. However, this is his Super Bowl debut and the nerves could get the better of him at the start of the game before he settles into it. He did throw just one interception in the postseason and it happened to be against Arizona, although it wasn’t the first play. Still, it’s the Super Bowl. Could happen here. That and the price on a throwing a touchdown just doesn’t hold any appeal for our NFL picks.</p> <p><strong>NFL Picks: </strong>Throw an Interception +160</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Total Rushing Yards Cam Newton</strong></p> <ul> <li><span style="font-size:14px">Over 40 ½ (-125)</span></li> <li><span style="font-size:14px">Under 40 ½ (-105)</span></li> </ul> <p><strong>NFL Betting Verdict: </strong>Cam Newton is known for being a dual threat quarterback, and there’s no doubt he’ll use his legs when he can. He has 153 rushing attempts for 686 yards this term in 18 games played, which yields 38.1 rushing yards on average and comes just under the projected total of 40.5 currently trading on the <a href="" target="_blank" title="Review Our NFL Live Odds Board">NFL odds board</a>. Yet, <a href="" target="_blank" title="Review Odds For Rushing Yards &amp; More Props">odds makers seem to favor the OVER 40.5</a>, which is somewhat surprising, not only because he averages slightly less, but he’s coming up against the league’s best defense. Odds makers really don’t appear to be respecting the Denver D enough.</p> <p><strong>NFL Picks:</strong> Under 40 ½ (-105)</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Total Interceptions Thrown Cam Newton</strong></p> <ul> <li><span style="font-size:14px">OVER ½ (-170)</span></li> <li><span style="font-size:14px">UNDER ½ (+140)</span></li> </ul> <p><strong>NFL Betting Verdict: </strong>With Cam Newton throwing just 1 interception in the postseason and eleven overall in 18 games played, it might appear surprising that odds makers would favor the OVER ½ in this game. It’s a big occasion though, and his debut on the biggest stage of all in the NFL. It’s bound to factor, not to mention the Denver D is nothing to sniff at.</p> <p><strong>NFL Picks</strong>: Over ½ (-170)</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Total Pass Attempts Cam Newton</strong></p> <ul> <li><span style="font-size:14px">OVER 30 ½ (-125)</span></li> <li><span style="font-size:14px">UNDER 30 ½ (-105)</span></li> </ul> <p><strong>NFL Betting Verdict: </strong>Cam Newton has 546 pass attempts through 18 games played for an average of 30.3 pass attempts per game, which is almost right on the NFL betting line currently trading. In the last two games, he has averaged just 25 pass attempts – this includes the 49-15 walloping over the Cardinals in which he enjoyed 28 pass attempts. It’s hard to imagine he’ll have a field day with the Denver defense, so we’re going with the UNDER here for our choice NFL picks.</p> <p><strong>NFL Picks</strong>: Under 30 ½ (-105)</p> <p style="text-align:center"><var><strong>***<a href="" target="_blank" title="The Best &amp; Worst Super Bowl Prop Selections For Bettors">Don't Miss Our Cherry-Picked Super Bowl Props</a>***</strong></var></p>
