Peyton Manning likely to announce 2016 return next week, per report

The future of the Denver Broncos’ quarterback situation is one of the critical issues of the NFL offseason. Though Peyton Manning has yet to make a definitive public statement on the matter, it appears he’ll announce his intentions to return soon, per Chris Mortensen of ESPN.

Kubiak has apparently expressed a willingness to tweak his offensive scheme to fit Manning’s strengths. The quarterback had enjoyed some of his best years under the previous coaching regime that included offensive coordinators Mike McCoy and Adam Gase.

Before the 2016 Super Bowl, heads and tails had evenly split the first 48 Super Bowls. Heads had a five-year run from 2009 to 2013, and tails came up nine of 11 seasons from 1998 to 2006. Each coin toss is an independent event, however, so one cannot simply wager on one side of the coin being “hot,” or one side being due to come up.

Both heads and tails were paying out at -105, meaning a $105 bet won $100 if the correct result came up. The team result was much the same, paying out -105 on an even bet between the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots, with Seattle winning. New England called the toss incorrectly, which will pay out -115 on another even bet.

One prop bet relating to the coin toss remains: the game winner. The proposition that the coin toss winner will go on to win the Super Bowl is paying an even -115, but obviously that can’t be determined until the game is over.
