Pro Bowl Odds & Roster Notes

Pro Bowl odds could definitely be impacted this year with some top name starters missing the game

Already NFC starting quarterback Brett Favre has been replaced in the game.  AFC starting quarterback Tom Brady may end up being replaced as well since he has an ankle injury.  Rosters must be considered when you think about Pro Bowl betting.

Pro Bowl odds have had the AFC favored in recent seasons with totals in the 60’s.  That could be the case again in Pro Bowl odds for 2008.  Since Pro Bowl odds show that Favre is out of the game the NFC will be led by quarterbacks Matt Hasselbeck, Tony Romo and Jeff Garcia.  Pro Bowl odds show that Adrian Peterson is the starting running back for the NFC with backups Marion Barber and Brian Westbrook.  Pro Bowl odds have Larry Fitzgerald, Terrell Owens, Donald Driver and Torry Holt as the receivers with Jason Witten and Chris Cooley the tight ends.  If the NFC offensive starters seem to be nothing special that could be why the AFC is favored in Pro Bowl odds.

Pro Bowl odds show that Tom Brady is the official starter at quarterback for the AFC but it is likely his spot will be replaced. It is definitely nice for the AFC that Peyton Manning would then be the starter.  Ben Roethlisberger is the other quarterback.  Pro Bowl odds show that LaDainian Tomlinson is the starting running back with Joseph Addai and Fred Taylor the backups.

Pro Bowl betting shows that Randy Moss, Reggie Wayne, Braylon Edwards and T.J. Houshmandzadeh are the receivers.  Pro Bowl odds show that Antonio Gates and Tony Gonzalez are the tight ends although it is unlikely Gates will play.

Pro Bowl odds will probably have the AFC favored again but the NFC might get some betting support, especially if Brady does not play.  The under might also get a look as some of the top offensive players are likely to miss the game.  Rosters can definitely be important as you look at Pro Bowl betting.  Don’t just glance at the starters and think you know who is playing.  Take the time to look at all of the players before placing your Pro Bowl betting wager.
