Pro Bowl Betting Notes

Pro Bowl betting will take place on the 2008 Pro Bowl from Honolulu, Hawaii on February 10th.

Pro Bowl betting shows that game is officially the AFC-NFC Pro Bowl.  It is the last chance for gamblers to bet NFL action this season.

Pro Bowl betting tells us that the Pro Bowl has been played at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii since 1980. Pro Bowl betting history shows that the first All-Star Game was between the 1938 NFL champions, the New York Giants, and a team of NFL all-stars. The first game was played at Wrigley Field in Los Angeles.  The game was played following the regular season until 1942.  The game was picked up again after the 1950 season and known as the Pro Bowl.  After the merger in 1970 the game was officially known as the AFC-NFC Pro Bowl and Pro Bowl betting gamblers refer to it as the Pro Bowl today.  The first MVP award went out in 1951.

Pro Bowl betting showcases the best players in the NFL but oftentimes it is players other than the starters that decide the outcome of Pro Bowl betting.  If you think that Peyton Manning and LaDaianian Tomlinson will be playing the entire game, you are mistaken.  It is the second and third string quarterbacks in the game that usually decides the outcome of your Pro Bowl betting wager.  These players are still great players but keep in mind they are not the starters.

As you look at Pro Bowl odds you may want to know that the AFC holds the all-time edge 19-18 against the NFC.  Most of the totals in Pro Bowl odds have gone over the total although since the total keeps rising, two of the last three games have gone under.  59 points were scored in last year’s game and that was not enough to go over the total of 65 in Pro Bowl betting.

As you take a look at Pro Bowl betting this year remember that the points are always worth taking although the Pro Bowl odds usually only have a team favored by a field goal or so.  You also may want to look at the Pro Bowl betting total.  The under has been a good bet in recent seasons since Pro Bowl odds get higher every season.
