Security measures apparent at Super Bowl 50

Here’s the latest from Associated Press regarding security in the Bay Area for Super Bowl 50:

Security was heavy and visible Sunday around Super Bowl locations, from hotels in San Francisco to Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara.

Drones are banned around the stadium and there are overall flight restrictions.

And San Francisco will not have large-scale public viewing spot downtown, unlike the way the city offered such opportunities for the San Francisco Giants’ World Series championship runs in 2010, ’12 and ’14.

The FBI opened a multi-agency command post last week about six miles from Levi’s Stadium that will be continuously staffed.

Super Bowl 50 tickets

Ticket prices to Super Bowl 50 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara dropped overnight, according to StubHub, but the average ticket is still going for $4,577 today. That’s $160 less than the average sales price on Saturday.

The least expensive tickets today are going for $2,785, an increase of $85 from Saturday.

The average sales price for a Super Bowl 50 ticket, StubHub reported, is $4,617. The least expensive ticket sold was $1,222, with the most expensive going for $27,983.

How does the average cost of a ticket to Super Bowl 50 compare to the two previous NFL championship games? A modest increase from the Patriots-Seahawks game last year in Glendale, Ariz., when the average price was $4,222.

Those average prices were a big jump from the Seahawks-Broncos game at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. The average ticket for that game went for $2,516.

Key players to watch in Super Bowl 50

PANTHERS YOU SHOULD KNOW

Mike Remmers, Offensive tackle

Starts on right side and is a good run blocker, but has been shaky in pass protection. He’ll be charged with neutralizing linebacker Von Miller. That’s not an enviable task, even with the elusiveness of quarterback Cam Newton (shown above with Remmers).

Shaq Thompson, linebacker

The rookie would step in for Thomas Davis if that veteran linebacker has more problems with his broken arm. Thompson was particularly effective in the conference title game in disrupting Larry Fitzgerald.

Graham Gano, kicker

Gano is experienced and can make pressure kicks, but five of his kicks have been blocked this season, including four field-goal tries. That’s scary.

BRONCOS YOU SHOULD KNOW

Bennie Fowler, receiver

In his second year out of Michigan State, Fowler has good size (6-1, 212 pounds) and uncommon speed. He made a huge third-down catch in the playoff win over Pittsburgh. He’s a dangerous weapon in the slot.

Brandon Marshall, linebacker

If he’s not the best inside linebacker in football, Marshall is at least in the conversation. Not only did he play the entire season with a screw in his foot, the screw was broken. He likely would have led the team in tackles but sat out the finale.

Matt Paridas, center

Has been an ever-improving anchor after spending last season on the practice squad. To play keep-away from Cam Newton, Paradis needs to have a big game.

PANTHERS WHO MUST COME THROUGH

Cam Newton, quarterback

Newton, the NFL’s 2015 most valuable player, is the league’s most dangerous pass-run threat. This is his first time on the NFL’s biggest stage, but so far he hasn’t shown a tendency to shrink in the spotlight.

Luke Kuechly, linebacker

The 2013 NFL defensive player of the year, Kuechly is the glue that holds together the spectacular Panthers defense. On top of being as good a tackler as there is in the game, he’s has had pick-six touchdowns in the last two games.

Ted Ginn Jr., receiver

Thanks in part to offensive coordinator Mike Shula, the speedy Ginn has emerged as the kind of threat lots of people anticipated he’d be. He scored 10 touchdowns this season after scoring 11 in his last eight seasons combined.

BRONCOS WHO MUST COME THROUGH

Peyton Manning, quarterback

Manning, the NFL’s only five-time most valuable player, might be at the end of his career. He made just enough throws in the Pittsburgh playoff game, then looked sharper against New England. He’ll need to be ultra-crisp in this one.

Von Miller, linebacker

Miller was a wrecking ball against the Patriots, proving to be nearly unblockable, sacking Tom Brady 2 1/2 times, and hitting him a bunch more. If he can get to Newton and force him into mistakes, the scale will tilt in favor of Denver.

Chris Harris, cornerback

Played injured against Pittsburgh, then against the Patriots had the clinching interception of Brady’s two-point conversion pass. The Panthers have so many offensive weapons, this will be the biggest test for this secondary.

How the Broncos and Panthers match up for Super Bowl 50

Breaking down the matchups when Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos meet in Super Bowl 50 on Sunday at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara.

Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. PST. The NFL’s championship game will be broadcast on CBS.

Broncos pass offense

vs. Panthers pass defense

Peyton Manning doesn’t have a lot of velocity on his throws, but he was sharper in the championship game than against Pittsburgh the week before. Emmanuel Sanders can stretch the field, and Owen Daniels has been hot lately in two-tight-end sets. Carolina’s ultra-athletic Josh Norman is the Odell Beckham Jr. of cornerbacks, and safety Kurt Coleman is an interception machine. The Panthers haven’t gotten a lot of pass-rush production out of their defensive ends, but tackle Kawaan Short has had a phenomenal year.

EDGE: Broncos

Broncos run offense

vs. Panthers run defense

C.J. Anderson is a bowling ball, and Ronnie Hillman has the quickness to get around the corner and home-run speed. Broncos right tackle Michael Schofield is a liability in pass protection but he’s a great run blocker, as is rookie guard Max Garcia. The Panthers have a stifling run defense, mainly because of linebackers Luke Kuechly and Thomas Davis. They’re dominant. Kuechly is incredibly adept at sniffing out where a play’s going, seemingly before the snap. Carolina doesn’t do anything tricky, just lets its athletes be athletes.

EDGE: Panthers

Panthers pass offense

vs. Broncos pass defense

Offensive coordinator Mike Shula has done an incredible job of getting the most out of Panthers receivers — and after losing star Kelvin Benjamin. Tight end Greg Olsen is Rob Gronkowski-like, and the speedy Ted Ginn Jr. is playing his best football (even if he has his drops). Denver’s pass-rushing duo of Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware is a nightmare for quarterbacks, and they were on fire vs. Tom Brady. The Broncos have three of the best corners in the business in Chris Harris, Aqib Talib and Bradley Roby, plus thumping safety T.J. Ward.

EDGE: Broncos

Panthers run offense

vs. Broncos run defense

The power and elusiveness of Cam Newton sends shudders through opposing defensive coordinators. He can do major damage with his feet — sweeps, counters, draws, and just improvisation. Otherwise, the Panthers run a lot of traditional two-back stuff with Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert. Denver’s big guys up front — especially Malik Jackson, Sylvester Williams, and Antonio Smith — are solid at the point of attack. Inside linebackers Danny Trevathan and Brandon Marshall are terrific sideline-to-sideline trackers.

EDGE: Panthers

Special teams

Not everything is top-notch with these teams. For instance, the Panthers were ranked last in kickoff returns (18.5-yard average) and the Broncos were 23rd (21.8). Otherwise, they both have solid punters in Denver’s Britton Colquitt and Carolina’s Brad Nortman, and reliable kickers in Denver’s Brandon McManus and Carolina’s Graham Gano. McManus had a remarkable performance in the divisional-round victory over Pittsburgh, nailing five field goals despite the 30 mph crosswinds coming off the mountains. The Broncos have a Swiss watch in long snapper Aaron Brewer.

EDGE: Broncos

Coaching
Carolina’s Ron Rivera has done a remarkable job this season, leading his team to a 17-1 record despite losing star receiver Benjamin in training camp. The Panthers have cleaned up on takeaways (tops in NFL with 39, six more than second-place Arizona), limited turnovers, and — thanks in part to offensive coordinator Shula — have gotten the most out of Newton. Denver’s Gary Kubiak has done a good job with Manning, but that’s not an ideal quarterback for that offense. Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips has turned that unit into an undeniable beast.

EDGE: Panthers

FARMER’S PICK

With all the talk about Cam Newton and Peyton Manning this week, there’s been a tendency to overlook the Broncos defense. Those guys got after Tom Brady and, even though Newton is a completely different quarterback — and can trigger a hiccup of hesitation from those outside linebackers with his ability to run — Denver can put a spy on him and force him into mistakes. If Manning can protect the football and get the running game going to set up the play-action pass, the Broncos will pull off the upset. Carolina is not a great second-half team, so the key for Denver will be to hang tough for the first two quarters, then pull off the upset down the stretch.

Yahoo Sports’ Picks For Broncos vs. Panthers in Super Bowl 50

Yahoo Sports' Picks For Broncos vs. Panthers in Super Bowl 50SAN FRANCISCO — The Carolina Panthers have a golden opportunity in Super Bowl 50.

Carolina has never won a Super Bowl Broncos vs Panthers before. They came close, in Super Bowl XXXVIII, but the New England Patriots broke their hearts with a field goal as time expired. The Panthers haven’t been back.

The Carolina Panthers are finally back in the Super Bowl, they’re 17-1 and they’re heavily favored to win the first championship in franchise history. The Denver Broncos will have something to say about that. We’ve seen big Super Bowl upsets before, and the Broncos come in with the No. 1 ranked defense in the NFL and a legendary quarterback in Peyton Manning who wants to win his second Super Bowl (and perhaps retire on the highest note possible).

Our panel of writers predicted what they think will happen in Super Bowl 50:

ERIC EDHOLM
Panthers 39, Broncos 18
MVP: Cam Newton

I’m aware that the Broncos don’t typically let teams score this many points, but the Panthers find ways to score without needing the offensive yards to match. It’s the offense, defense and special teams all working together that has been the formula all season. But one clear statistic in the Panthers favor heavily is the turnover differential: They’re plus-28 in 18 games this season, and the Broncos are minus-2 even with some recent improvement. Another one: The Panthers’ scoring differential (plus-233) dwarfs that of the Broncos (plus-68). The Panthers will harass Peyton Manning in his final game (yup), and Cam Newton will play a dynamic game. And why such an odd score, one that never has happened in a game before? Super Bowl scores often are weird like that.

CHARLES ROBINSON
Panthers 24, Broncos 20
MVP: Cam Newton

Cam Newton (AP)-The Broncos need to do three things to win: Keep Peyton Manning from being touched, run the ball with some authority and make it through the game without a turnover. That’s a tall order against this Carolina defense. On the flip side, Cam Newton has the ability to move and avoid the Denver rush, while making the Broncos pay for being overly aggressive. Newton and the Carolina defense win those battles, and win a close game.

BEN ROHRBACH
Panthers 27, Broncos 13
MVP: Cam Newton Both teams feature great defenses. But the Panthers have Cam Newton, who can do just about anything. And the Broncos have Peyton Manning, who can no longer. That chasm’s worth two touchdowns, partly because I’m pretty sure Superman has jurisdiction over the sheriff.

KEVIN KADUK
Panthers 21, Broncos 16
MVP: Cam Newton

History has shown us you can do worse than pick the Broncos to lose the Super Bowl. But even if their record in the big game was reversed, I’d still be picking the Panthers. Denver’s defense is title-worthy but the same can be said for the Panthers’ defense. Especially considering they’re going against a Denver offense that has struggled to produce all year. While Peyton riding off into the sunset with a Lombardi Trophy would’ve made for a great story, seeing Cam Newton officially claim his place atop the NFL with an 18-1 team will also make for a great headline.

DAN WETZEL
Broncos 17, Panthers 14
MVP: Von Miller

I talked myself into it. Or I let Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware and Aqib Talib and the other guys talk me into it. They sound confident. Maybe I just want a good game and two weeks ago I thought it would be a Carolina blowout, the Cam Newton domination tour continuing, the first of his many Super Bowl triumphs. However, it’s hard to score in the Super Bowl, Denver’s D will get to Cam (multiple sacks) and they’ll produce a touchdown somehow. So why the heck not? Plus, if Denver somehow wins they can’t say NO ONE PICKED US (they’ll say this anyway).

JAY BUSBEE
Panthers 21, Broncos 17
MVP: Cam Newton

You look at who has to play at their best versus who has to play to their expected level in this game, and you see that both sides of the ball for Denver have to play absolutely out of their minds: the defense to get turnovers and scores, the offense to be a basic functioning unit for four straight quarters. Contrast that with the Panthers, fully operational and dominant from any angle on the field, and there’s no comparison. Carolina starts strong, holds the lead even against a late Denver run, and cruises to the franchise’s first title. Yes, Carolina will win the Super Bowl and still get no respect because they make it look so easy.

SHALISE MANZA YOUNG
Panthers 34, Broncos 20
MVP: Cam Newton

The NFC was the stronger conference this year, and given how easily the Panthers dispatched the Cardinals — a team with an MVP-candidate quarterback, strong skill players and a top-five defense — they should fare well against the Broncos. Cam Newton has been a force this season, both on and off the field, and has seemingly gotten better with each week, having more and more fun in the process. sports.yahoo.com

FRANK SCHWAB

Panthers 17, Broncos 16
MVP: Luke Kuechly .I’ve tried talking myself into the Broncos. Elite defenses often do quite well in the Super Bowl. But I just couldn’t do it. I think Denver’s defense keeps it close (and covers the 4.5-point spread on the Yahoo Pro Football Pick’em to give me an even .500 record for the season), I think they’ll give Cam Newton some problems, but in the end I don’t think the Broncos can score enough. I don’t think this will be a pretty Super Bowl but it will be close. Kuechly, and not Newton, will be the biggest difference maker, disrupting the Broncos’ running game and picking off Manning at least once.

Broncos vs Panthers How To Stream Super Bowl 50 This Sunday

Broncos vs Panthers How To Stream Super Bowl 50 This SundayThe record books will be rewritten when the Panthers and Broncos meet in Super Bowl 50 on Sunday night.

Broncos vs Panthers Live Stream it is almost here. We are just two days away from the game that football fans everywhere have been pining for the entire season. The NFL gods have rewarded us with an incredible matchup for the 50th edition of the Super Bowl 2016, with the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers set to do battle at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., on Sunday night.

The meeting of the league’s best teams in the season’s final game has become commonplace in recent years, as this will be the third straight season that we get the top seeds from each conference in the Super Bowl. Before this stretch, it had happened only three other times since the current playoff format was established prior to the 1990 season. Denver Broncos vs Carolina Panthers 

The Panthers, however, aren’t just any No. 1 seed. They were the last team to lose in the regular season, finished 15-1 and had the league’s best outright record. While that trio of accomplishments is impressive, it’s hasn’t historically guaranteed a deep run through the postseason.

Since 2000, the only “last undefeated team” to win a Super Bowl was the Indianapolis Colts in 2006. Carolina was the seventh team in NFL history to win 15 or more regular season games, but just two of the other six — the 1984 San Francisco 49ers and 1985 Chicago Bears — got a ring at the end of the playoffs. And none of the last eight teams with the league’s best record outright has gone on to win the Super Bowl. The most recent team to do so was the 2003 New England Patriots.

For Carolina, there’s also the pressure of capturing the franchise’s first-ever Lombardi Trophy. The Panthers are one of 13 active franchises that have never won a Super Bowl, losing to the Patriots in their only other appearance in 2003. If the Panthers prevail on Sunday, they’ll follow in the footsteps of the Seattle Seahawks (2013) and Baltimore Ravens (2012) as recent first-time winners.

While the Panthers are relative newcomers to the big stage, the Broncos are seasoned veterans. This is their eighth all-time appearance in the Super Bowl, etching their name alongside the Pittsburgh Steelers, Dallas Cowboys and Patriots in the NFL record books. Yet, success has been fleeting for them on this stage.

Denver is 2-5 in the Super Bowl, the most losses by any franchise in league history. While that distinction would be sad enough on its own, it gets even more distressing when you look at how badly it’s been outplayed in those contests. Each of the losses has been by at least 17 points and the average margin of defeat is nearly 30 points per game. Of the five biggest blowouts in Super Bowl history, the Broncos have been the victim in three of them.

Still, the Broncos have a chance to become the ninth team to earn a trio of Super Bowl titles and give Peyton Manning a chance to earn that elusive second championship. If this is the Sheriff’s final rodeo, he has the rare opportunity to write a storybook ending to his Hall of Fame career and make history by becoming the first quarterback ever to win a ring with two different franchises.sbnation.com

Super Bowl 50 Odds: Prop Bets For Broncos vs. Panthers

Super Bowl 50 Odds: Prop Bets For Broncos vs. PanthersCarolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly has returned an interception for a touchdown in both of Carolina’s postseason wins this year. Whether or not that trend will continue is just one of the many prop bets available for Super Bowl 50 at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com.

Super Bowl 2016 will Luke Kuechly record a pick-six in the game? (Yes +600, No -1200) Many bettors won’t like the heavy chalk, but specific events like this are rare. Kuechly has three touchdown returns in 69 career games.

Super Bowl 50 MVP

The quarterback of the winning team has won the Super Bowl MVP award seven times in the last nine seasons. Cam Newton (-130) and Peyton Manning (+275) are favorites to continue that trend.

Peyton Manning Total Touchdown Passes (Over 1.5 -105, Under 1.5 -125)

Manning has thrown for two or more touchdown passes in just four of his last 14 games. He has failed to do so in seven of his last nine games, but did have two in the AFC Championship Game.

Cam Newton Total Touchdown Passes (Over 1.5 -165, Under 1.5 +135)

Newton on the other hand has passed for two or more touchdowns in five of Carolina’s last seven games. He’s been held without a passing touchdown only twice this season.

Who will record the most receiving yards in the game?

Demaryius Thomas and Greg Olsen are tied for the top spot going off at +300 apiece, with Emmanuel Sanders at +325 and Ted Ginn Jr. at +500 trailing close behind. Olsen has been Carolina’s leading receiver in three of the team’s last four games.

Demaryius Thomas Total Receiving Yards (Over 67.5 -125, Under 67.5 -105)

Thomas led Denver in receiving this season with 105 catches and 1,304 yards. He will likely draw Josh Norman in this game, one of the NFL’s best cornerbacks. Thomas has gone UNDER 67.5 receiving yards in four of his last five games.

Who will record the most rushing yards in the game?

This prop will likely boil down to the game’s two starting running backs, with Carolina’s Jonathan Stewart a slight favorite at +120 over Denver’s C.J. Anderson at +130. Cam Newton is a dark horse at +500.

Will a special teams or defensive TD be scored? (Yes +140, No -170)

In a game featuring two of the NFL’s best defenses, a defensive or special teams touchdown wouldn’t be a surprise. Five of the last seven Super Bowls have had a touchdown scored on defense or special teams.

What color will the liquid be that is poured on the winning coach?

From 2007 to 2010, all four coaches were doused in clear (+400) liquid. Since then, three NFC Super Bowl winning coaches have been hit with orange, making the color a +125 favorite over blue (+300), yellow (+400) and red (+600).

Coin Toss (Heads -105, Tails -105)

The age-old question: heads or tails? The coin had landed on heads in five straight Super Bowls before landing on tails in each of the last two games.si.com

Broncos vs. Panthers: Here are Super Bowl 50 Predictions From Madden and Microsoft

Broncos vs. Panthers if you need help figuring out who will win next Sunday’s Super Bowl, Madden simulations aren’t a bad place to start.

Broncos vs. Panthers: Here are Super Bowl 50 Predictions From Madden and MicrosoftFor the past 12 years, the EA Sports football video game franchise has simulated the Super Bowl and correctly picked nine champions for a 75 percent success rate.

Last year, its simulation was eerily spot-on, predicting not only the correct champion (Patriots), but the exact final score (28-24), Tom Brady winning Super Bowl MVP, Brady’s stats (328 yards and four touchdowns vs. a predicted 335 yards and four touchdowns), and the fact that New England came back from a 24-14 deficit. This year, Madden NFL 16 — the second most-popular game in 2015, according to NPD — is picking the Carolina Panthers to beat the Denver Broncos, 24-20, with Cam Newton taking home MVP honors after throwing for 216 yards and a touchdown.

In the simulation, the Panthers jumped out to a 17-0 lead, but Denver stormed back and led 20-17 late in the fourth quarter. In the end, though, it was Newton running for a game-winning touchdown with less than one minute left that sealed the deal for Carolina.
Microsoft Bing, meanwhile, is also picking Carolina to win its first Super Bowl ever with a 64 percent probability rating.Both defenses are stout, so our models expect Carolina’s much stronger offense to be the difference, becoming the first 18-win champion in 30 years,” Bing wrote today.

Before the NFL playoffs kicked off in January, Bing’s prediction model picked New England to beat Carolina in the Super Bowl. Bing is 10-4 in the playoffs and ended the regular NFL season with a 161-95 (63 percent) record.

What’s the line on Denver Broncos vs. Carolina Panthers?

Denver Broncos vs Carolina Panthers : Considered a front-runner for NFL MVP honors, Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton will lead his team against five-time MVP winner Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl on Feb. 7 in Santa Clara, Calif.
Denver Broncos vs. Carolina Panthers
“We’re not done yet,” Newton said on the podium on the field as he and teammates smiled and took in the cheers of the hometown fans in accepting the conference title trophy after a 49-15 victory over the Arizona Cardinals in the NFC Championship Game.

The Broncos beat the New England Patriots, 20-18, in the AFC Championship Game.

William Hill Race and Sports has installed the Panthers as a 3.5-point favorites.

Money Lines opened at Panthers -165 and Broncos +145. (Bettors who favored the Panthers would wager $100 to win $165. Broncos supporters would wager $100 to win $145.)

The Associated Press line opened at Panthers -3.5 points and quickly went to Panthers -4 points.

The over/under opened at 45.5 points.

The Panthers (17-1) forced the Cardinals into seven turnovers, six by Carson Palmer, including four interceptions. Now comes the test against the Broncos (14-4) and Manning, considered one of the NFL’s greatest quarterbacks.

“We’ve just got to try to get some pressure on him,” Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly said. “That’s the biggest thing. You’ve got to try and get after them early and our guys do a great with that and we’ll have a good play ready to go.”

The Panthers will compete in their second Super Bowl while ending what had been the Cardinals’ winningest season with a thud.

“This is as low as you can feel,” Palmer said in a hushed tone. “You put so much in and you come in here with such high expectations, and to leave the way we’re leaving just hurts.”

Palmer threw four interceptions and was stripped for a pair of fumbles, while All-Pro cornerback Patrick Peterson fumbled a punt return in the first half. And many of those miscues helped Carolina roll to a 24-7 halftime lead with an outcome that was — shockingly — never in doubt. Denver Broncos vs Carolina Panthers News Source : NJ

Broncos opening betting underdogs vs Panthers: Super Bowl odds 2016

Peyton Manning and the Broncos head to Levi’s Stadium as opening betting underdogs against the Panthers on the Super Bowl 50 odds.

Broncos opening betting underdogs vs Panthers

The Denver Broncos won the AFC Championship Game and paid off as betting underdogs on Sunday, and they’ll get a chance to record another upset in two weeks when they take on the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara.

The Broncos opened as 3.5-point betting underdogs at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com for Super Bowl 50 against the Panthers after both teams earned victories in their respective conference championship games on Sunday — but in very different ways.

Denver edged the New England Patriots 20-18 as a 3-point home betting underdog in the AFC title game, holding off a second-half rally by Tom Brady and the Pats. The Broncos scored 17 of their 20 points in the first half on Sunday, getting a field goal in the fourth quarter and holding on to that lead to punch their ticket to Super Bowl 50.

Peyton Manning, potentially making his final playoff run, threw for 176 yards and a pair of touchdowns for the Broncos on Sunday while avoiding any interceptions. The Denver defense then did the rest of the work in the AFC title game, including picking off Brady twice.

The Panthers, meanwhile, were 3-point home betting favorites against the Arizona Cardinals in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday and made a mockery of that spread, winning a 49-15 laugher as quarterback Cam Newton accounted for four touchdowns – two through the air and two on the ground.

Newton threw for 335 yards and rushed for 47 yards on the day.

Newton and the high-powered Panthers have now turned in four OVER results in their past five games according to the OddsShark NFL Database, and will be up against a strong Broncos defense that has now turned in five UNDER results in its past seven outings.

The total for Super Bowl 50 opened at 45.5 points at the sportsbooks on Sunday night.

The first career meeting between Manning and Newton was a 36-14 win for the Broncos in November 2012, with Manning throwing for 301 yards and a touchdown on the day and Newton passing for 241 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions. Denver was a 3.5-point road favorite at the sportsbooks for that contest and easily covered the posted spread.
