For Season Ticket Holders

Season ticket holders are automatically entered into a lottery for their chance to buy primary SB tickets. But not every season ticket holder is equal: preference is given to those whose team has made it to the Super Bowl, the number and type of seats you own, and how long you’ve owned said seats. For the lucky chosen few, you can pick up your tickets on game day at the box office.

For People in the NFL

The NFL distributes 74.8% of Super Bowl tickets to their teams. The remaining 25.2% of tickets are then spread out between the media, partners and sponsors. Only a small amount are then sold to fans via “packages” which are mostly scooped up by ticket brokers well in advance of the game (which then trickles down to you, the buyer). In essence, it’s almost impossible for the Average Joe to get a Super Bowl ticket from a primary source.

For the 2017 Super Bowl and going forward, the NFL announced that they were allocating 6,000 tickets away from the participating teams and instead funneling them into more Super Bowl packages. Those packages will be sold to fans via the NFL On Location Experience Company.

On the Secondary Market

Because of this, most people who want to go to the game turn to the secondary market for tickets. The secondary market just means the ticket is not being sold from the original source, and the price point is dictated by how hot the ticket is rather than the original cost. Super Bowl tickets can get very pricey on the secondary market.

SeatGeek lists secondary tickets (as well as primary for select markets), including Super Bowl inventory. Leading up to Super Bowl LI we outlined all the features available on SeatGeek to help you save money and purchase tickets confidently. Some of these include our ticket price tracker, Deal Score, and a ticket guarantee. SeatGeek also has seat views of the Mercedes-Benz Stadium on its venue page, so customers can check out where they’re sitting before making a purchase.

When to Buy Super Bowl Tickets

If you’re in the majority of people who have to buy their Super Bowl tickets through a secondary source, you’re likely wondering when the best time to make your purchase is. Resale activity spikes immediately following the conference championship games, but prices generally tend to fall as kickoff approaches. Keep checking the SeatGeek Super Bowl Ticket Tracker for up-to-date pricing info, and/or sign up for email alerts regarding price drops and discounts.

2019 was the 25th season for the Carolina Panthers, and it was a dismal one. Carolina finished 5-11 and fourth in the NFC South. Cam Newton played two games before missing the remainder of the 2019 season.

At first, Carolina looked to have figured something out with quarterback Kyle Allen. The Panthers were 4-2 heading into their bye. Then, the season fell apart. Carolina went 1-9 to finish 2019.

Right now, the Panthers are looking at a rebuild. They brought in a new head coach and released former MVP, Cam Newton, this offseason. Carolina looks to start fresh in 2020 in hopes of rebuilding a championship-caliber team.

As of writing this, FanDuel Sportsbook has the Panthers are tied for the seventh-longest odds to win Super Bowl LV. Things aren’t looking great when the Jets have the same odds. Expectations are low this season for Carolina. Unless a miracle happens, it isn’t worth taking a flier on the Panthers.

Panthers 2021 Super Bowl Odds

Carolina comes into the 2020 season at +7000 to win the Super Bowl. Only five teams sit below the Panters with worse odds than them. As Carolina enters a rebuild, there aren’t high expectations for this team.

Right now, their win total sits at 5.5 wins, but the juice is -130 on the over. This is encouraging as this shows money is pouring on what could be a decent Panthers season. Carolina signed Teddy Bridgewater this offseason, which could help them win an extra game or two.

The Panthers are in last in terms of odds to win the NFC South. They sit at +1400 to win the division sitting behind all three division rivals. The NFC South has been the Saints to lose for the last three seasons and will defend their title again this year. Tampa Bay brought in Tom Brady and improved heading into 2020. Bridgewater will have to play at an MVP level if the Panthers want a chance

Panthers Odds Analysis

There isn’t much optimism when looking at the Panthers odds. They are a longshot across the board to win the Super Bowl, NFC, and NFC South. Even their odds to make the playoffs sit at +380. The win/loss for Carolina has -130 juice on the over as they sit at 5.5 wins.

Overall, there isn’t much value looking at Carolina’s odds. If Teddy Bridgewater plays out of his mind, then, Carolina could be the playoff race this season. Also, looking at Carolina’s schedule, there are about six winnable games. Depending on how well their defense plays could make or break the season.

Carolina won’t win a Super Bowl with a rookie head coach, but he could give them the spark they need to turn things around year one.

Panthers Offseason and Draft

Carolina had a busy offseason. First, they fired long-time Panthers head coach Ron Rivera after starting the season 5-7 season. Rivera went 76-63-1 in Carolina including three NFC South titles and a trip to Super Bowl 50.

Carolina brought in Baylor head coach Matt Rhule. In college, Rhule went 47-43, had two ten winning seasons with Temple, and a 10-win season with Baylor, which led them to a trip to the 2020 Sugar Bowl.

2012 AP Defensive Player of the Year, Luke Keuchly, retired in January after battling multiple concussions. Keuchly played eight decorated seasons in Carolina. Also, they cut former MVP, Cam Newton, in March. Newton went 68-55-1 as a starter in Carolina.

The Panthers brought in Teddy Bridgewater from New Orleans after Bridgewater showed his ability as a quarterback when Drew Brees went down. Also, the Panthers extended Christian McCaffery giving him $16 million per year. Also, they brought in offensive guards Michael Schofield and John Miller.

Defensively, they re-signed linebacker Tahir Whitehead who will replace Luke Kuechly. Also, they brought in cornerback Eli Apple and Derrek Thomas. Thomas played under Rhule at Baylor. However, they did lose safety Eric Reed, which could affect their pass defense.

In the NFL Draft, Carolina spent all seven picks on defensive players. Their first two picks were Auburn defensive tackle Derrick Brown and Penn State defensive end Yetur Gross-Matos to solidify the defensive line. Four of their next five picks were to improve the secondary.

Panthers Strengths and Weaknesses

Carolina had little success last year, but there’s no doubt that the success they did have was from running the football. Christian McCaffery is the heart and soul of that team, and the offense ran through him. The Panthers ranked ninth in rushing efficiency, according to Football Outsiders.

However, it’s a passing league in the NFL. If they want to see more success, then they’ll need a quarterback to do that. Bringing in Teddy Bridgewater might have been the best thing they could have done this offseason. Bridgewater could use another weapon, but the Panthers offense should have a lot more improvement in 2020.

Defensively, it’s a different story for Carolina. Last year, they ranked 25th in defensive efficiency, according to Football Outsiders. Their passing defense was 11th in efficiency, so not all was bad.

The Panthers need to fix their run defense going into 2020. According to Football Outsiders, they ranked 32nd in that department. Drafting two defensive lineman with the first two picks will help improve in that aspect.

Their pass defense will be make-or-break for Carolina this season. The Panthers will see Drew Brees, Tom Brady, and Matt Ryan twice this season. If they want to make a run in their division, it starts with stopping them.

Carolina Panthers Prediction

There isn’t much optimism for the Panthers in 2020. They have a new coaching staff and new quarterback to work with this season. Carolina’s roster isn’t terrible, but some improvements need to happen.

If Teddy Bridgewater can take his talents to the next level, Carolina might turn some heads. However, given their division, they have a long road ahead before it’s there’s for the taking. Right now, look for Carolina to have a mediocre season with a few surprising performances. There isn’t much here, but there’s enough to make some noise.
