Tips For Betting On 2013 Pro Bowl – A Lot of Chips on a Lot of Shoulders in Hawaii

AFC @ NFC – Sunday January 27, 2013 5:00PM EST

The NFL rewards its best and most popular players with a free vacation to Hawaii at the end of each season. Along the way, the NFL betting experts get to watch these great players put on an exhibition in Aloha Stadium and show us some of the skills that got them recognized. The reality is that not a single player in the Pro Bowl puts any effort into the game and neither side really cares who wins. But this season may be just a little different from past games.

This year, the competitors in the Pro Bowl have some axes to grind with each other that could make this a game that even the sports betting experts will enjoy. Some of the members of the Washington Redskins defense would love one last chance to hit Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch. Green Bay linebacker Clay Matthews would love the chance to hit just one more player, even if he has to play it off as an accident. NFL players still have tremendous respect for each other, but this game always offers some very interesting possibilities.

Why the AFC Will Win

In theory, the AFC should be able to field an offense that is far superior to that of the NFC. Peyton Manning is the AFC starting quarterback and he loves playing in Pro Bowls, so look for him to put up a real effort to get the ball downfield. All of the real offensive weapons for the NFC are playing in the Super Bowl, so the AFC secondary should be able to handle the NFC’s passing game. The problem the AFC may run into is trying to stop running back Adrian Peterson. Even when Peterson plays for fun, he is still better than most backs in the history of the league.

Why the NFC Will Win

The online betting world always seems to get behind the NFC in these Pro Bowls because the NFC always seems to win. This season, the game should be a passing display from both sides that will keep both defenses spinning in circles. The NFC’s best chance to win is to keep giving the ball to Adrian Peterson. As long as Peterson has the ball, the AFC will never get it and the NFC will score points. Aaron Rodgers is the starting quarterback for the NFC and he has some formidable weapons to throw to from the Atlanta Falcons.

The Bottom Line

This game never elevates itself beyond more than a simple scrimmage. The players have no reason to compete and it winds up being a big gathering for the NFL’s elite. But if you are going to put money on this game, then you should probably consider putting it on the AFC. With the real offensive threats from the NFC playing in the Super Bowl, the AFC will have its chance to sneak in and win.

Pick: AFC
