DENVER (CBS4) – Excitement is building on the Broncos’ road to the Super Bowl. It starts with the big playoff game this weekend. 4 On Your Side Money Saver Suzanne McCarroll found on Tuesday prices for the game are dropping.
There aren’t bargains, but there are some cheaper prices than one week ago, and that’s because of two primary factors.
Tickets would be pricier if the Broncos were playing Peyton Manning’s old team, the Indianapolis Colts. There would be more drama and more curiosity about Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, the No. 1 draft pick. That would have been the matchup of two generations of quarterbacks.
Ticket prices have gone down as the temperatures forecasted for Saturday’s game have also gone down. That means the prediction of ticket broker Candy Lewis last week — that this week would be the better week to buy — was correct.
“You’ll see the market coming down a little during game week,” she said.
Lewis still has tickets and is still getting calls, but fewer fans are willing to pay the truly outrageous prices for this particular matchup.
“If you talk to a lot of people, they were more excited about the Colts,” Lewis said. “So I think you’ll have some people who will say, ‘We’ll wait for the championship.’ And, ‘We’ll wait to see if it’s Tom Brady,’ which they are all waiting for.”
McCarroll found plenty of tickets available on StubHub.com with prices starting at $135. Craigslist has tickets from $195 to $560.
Lewis thinks prices may dip a bit more, but she’s not about to advise anyone on when to bite the bullet and buy.
“You’ve got to buy when it’s comfortable for you,” she said.
Single tickets will be cheaper than seats together. And watch the forecast. If the forecast gets worse, the ticket prices will likely go down yet again.
