Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpMinnesota certifies Biden victory Trump tells allies he plans to pardon Michael Flynn: report Republican John James concedes in Michigan Senate race 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.
