Bet on the NFL The best of the best in the NFC and the AFC team up against each other in the 2011 Pro Bowl this Sunday in Hawaii. When betting on the football here are some Pro Bowl stats to consider.
The AFC defeated the NFC in 2010 at 41-34, which put the total Pro-Bowl historic wining record at an even 20-20 for both divisions. Tom Brady is currently injured and won’t be participating The NFC won as the underdogs in 2009, they took the AFC 30-21. The game went under the 65.5 listed in Sportsbook. This wasn’t the first year that the NFC won as underdogs, in 2008 they were listed in Sportsbook as plus 3, but beat the AFC a whopping 42-20. Going over the total which was listed at 62.5. But they aren’t always the underdogs, in 2007 they were favored and won by 3, but failed to cover the 3.5 point spread.
In Aloha Stadium this Sunday January 30th the AFC Pro Bowl team will be led by head coach Bill Belichick who will see many of his own players on the AFC roster in this year's Pro Bowl game. Quarterbacks for the AFC will be Philip Rivers, Peyton Manning and Matt Cassel. The NFC Pro Bowl team will be led by head coach Mike Smith of the Atlanta Falcons. Quarterbacks for the NFC will be Michael Vick, Matt Ryan and Drew Brees. The AFC is going to feature a ton of quarterbacks that are essentially exactly the same. Philip Rivers and Peyton Manning are all statues in the pocket, and they all have some big time arms. The NFC clearly has the better crop of receivers to work with as well, as White, Calvin Johnson, DeSean Jackson, and Greg Jennings are superior to Reggie Wayne, Brandon Lloyd, Dwayne Bowe, and the newly selected Wes Welker, who is the alternate for the injured Andre Johnson.
After being played Miami prior to Super Bowl XLIV, the NFL Pro Bowl returns to what many consider its rightful home, Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii.
The Pro Bowl, which features the NFC against the AFC, is scheduled to be played one week prior to the Super Bowl, instead of its traditional spot one week after.
