Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpHouse Democrat slams Donald Trump Jr. for ‘serious case of amnesia’ after testimony Skier Lindsey Vonn: I don’t want to represent Trump at Olympics Poll: 4 in 10 Republicans think senior Trump advisers had improper dealings with Russia MORE on Sunday said he’s picking the Denver Broncos to pull the upset in next week’s Super Bowl.

The Republican primary front-runner said he’s going with the Broncos because he knows quarterback Peyton Manning, and “he’s a very, very good guy.”

“I have to go with the person I know and I like,” Trump said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

The Carolina Panthers, who are helmed by likely NFL MVP Cam Newton and only lost one game all season, are the early favorites, with odds-makers giving the Broncos six points in the match-up.

“I like the other team. I think the other team looks fantastic. Probably, they would be favored by something,” Trump said. “But I'll stick with Peyton because he's a very good guy.”

The Broncos defeated Trump’s original favorite to win it all, the New England Patriots, last week in the AFC Championship game.

The billionaire businessman has not been shy in his praise of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
