Pro Bowl Betting – NFL All-Star’s Clash In Sunny Honolulu, Hawaii

After making the decision to move last year’s Pro Bowl game to Miami, Florida, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell listened to the league’s players and coaches and eventually decided to give in to their demands to bring the game back to Aloha Stadium. Now, under the bright sun and blue skies of Honolulu, Hawaii, the league’s best will clash in the league’s annual All-Star game.

NFL Betting: AFC vs. NFC

Online Sports Betting Odds: NFC – 1.5

While Atlanta Falcons’ head coach Mike Smith will coach the NFC, Bill Belichick of the New England Patriots will coach the AFC after those teams finished with the best records in their respective conference. Smith and Belichick will be very familiar with their players, as the Falcons and Patriots each sent the most Pro Bowl selections for their respective conferences with nine and eight respectively.

Why To Bet On The AFC

The biggest Pro Bowl selection in the AFC will be from the Patriots, with quarterback Tom Brady the obvious starting quarterback for the conference after winning a second regular season MVP award. A six-time Pro Bowl selection, Brady threw for 3,900 yards and 36 touchdowns compared to just four interceptions during the regular season, and should have no problem hooking up with a couple of star AFC South receivers in Indianapolis Colts’ Reggie Wayne and Houston Texans’ Andre Johnson. With Colts’ Peyton Manning and Phillip Rivers of the San Diego Chargers also taking snaps under center, the AFC easily has the better quarterback depth with arguably the best three signal-callers in the league. The defense will take a hit with the loss of James Harrison and Troy Polamalu of the Pittsburgh Steelers, but with Nnamdi Asomugha, Darrelle Revis, and Ed Reed in the secondary this unit is outstanding.

Why To Bet On The NFC

They’ll need to keep one of the biggest stories of the season off balance when they line up against Michael Vick of the Philadelphia Eagles. After three years in jail and on the bench, Vick took over as the starter for Philadelphia and never looked back, throwing for 3,018 yards and 21 scores, while rushing for another 676 and nine touchdowns. The former Virginia Tech quarterback never seems satisfied, with a constant chip on his shoulder to prove that he belongs among the best, and should have a big game. He’ll be playing with a couple of stars from his former team in Michael Turner and Roddy White of the Atlanta Falcons, while being backed up by Matt Ryan. The NFC defense takes a hit as well with three starters lost to the Green Bay Packers, with Charles Woodson, Clay Matthews, and Nick Collins all going to Dallas for the Super Bowl betting game.

How The Game Will Play Out

While it is still an All-Star game, the Pro Bowl is played with the same intensity that any football game would need to be played, and there is still respect being played for. The NFC squad is solid, but the AFC has three elite quarterbacks and that should be enough to see some explosive plays and clinch a victory.
