Pro Bowl betting odds – NFC Will Extend It’s Win Streak to Three

Posted by Stan Simmons on 2/2/2010 9:14:25 AM

The AFC vs NFC betting odds presents the NFL’s All-Star matchup and this year, it will take place in the week before the Super Bowl. The game will be played in Miami instead of Hawaii, and since it’s taking place before the big game, you won’t see any players from the Super Bowl teams playing. Below is a preview of the Pro Bowl along with details as to why the NFC Will win again.

Pro Bowl odds: NFC -2, O/U: 60 

What’s On The Line?  
Before the Indianapolis Colts can meet up with the New Orleans Saints in Miami, FL and decide the Super Bowl XLIV odds on February 7, the best of the rest will vie for respect. That, and a large cash bonus. In the 40th edition of the Pro Bowl the players are not travelling to Hawaii, like they have done since 1980, but to South Florida and Dolphin Stadium instead. With a win the AFC could tie up the series at 20s.
 
Offensive Matchups: NFC vs AFC betting odds
The two offenses in the Pro Bowl this year are so dynamic that handicappers are forecasting very similar and big numbers. The question is which one of these x-factors will lead there team to victory?

Adrian Peterson should be on the field for the NFC again this year and with his presence come a stabilizing force. His style of speed, power and breaking tackles will be on display, especially since the game is known for a lack of big time hitting. After rushing for 122 yards and three touchdowns last weekend in a losing effort against the New Orleans Saints he should be ready to eat up more ground and finish the season on a winning note.

Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson was arguably the biggest x-factor in the league this past season. Finishing the season with 10 offensive plays of 40 plus yards he is a threat to score for the AFC at any time. With a chance to play alongside fellow Titan Vince Young, named as an injury replacement, the chemistry between them could lead to some big plays.

Defensive Matchups: AFC vs NFC betting odds 
Finishing the season with four of the top five defences, there will be a mass of talent protecting the AFC end zone, headed by the linebackers. Ray Lewis (twice) and James Harrison having both been past winners of NFL Defensive Player of the Year and Elvis Dumervil led the league in sacks this past season. Solidifying the middle of the field, it will be a long day for slot-receivers and tight-ends.

While the NFC does not boast the big names that the AFC has, they are still a solid group. With these players and Wade Phillips, who coached the Dallas Cowboys to a ninth ranked defence, the NFC will be able to end drives and force punts.

Notable Injuries: AFC vs NFC betting odds  
 Of the 86 players named to the AFC and NFC rosters, 13 are injured and another 12 are participating in the Super Bowl, and obviously will not play. Now that Brett Favre has pulled out after being banged up last weekend, five of the six quarterbacks chosen will not be playing. That being said, the league is not short on skilled players and that will be on display when the replacements take the field.

The biggest impact from the missing players will be the absence of Tom Brady, Philip Rivers and Peyton Manning. The loss of that much talent and having Ben Roethlisberger and Carson Palmer decline invitations forced the AFC to go with Matt Shaub, David Garrard and Vince Young. While the NFC was able to replace Drew Brees and Brett Favre with high caliber talent in Tony Romo and Donovan McNabb, the AFC will have three quarterbacks who average less than 50 career starts.

Over/Under Picks: AFC vs NFC betting odds 
In a game that has all of the players available from the top-17 defences and lacking at five of the chosen six quarterbacks, the under is looking good. Even though the Pro Bowl is known for soft defences, the line of 60.5 is still pretty high.
 
Pick: Under

Outlook and Pick: AFC vs NFC betting  
 With the AFC as a 2 point underdog, it is a good line for anyone doing NFL betting to go with the favourite. While this game will be hotly contested, the NFC just has more of its high end stars available.

George’s Pick: NFC
