It used to be that the Pro Bowl was on ABC or ESPN but that has changed. The 2008 game will be broadcast on FOX and the 2009 game will be on NBC.
Pro Bowl betting has seen the AFC with a slight edge over the NFC and the games go over the Pro Bowl odds most of the time. Pro Bowl betting is the last chance for bettors to wager on NFL action until the next season. Pro Bowl odds usually have one team favored by a field goal or less and the total in recent years has been in the 60’s. Pro Bowl betting is not that popular but at least the game is on television and that means it will generate some interest for bettors.
Pro Bowl betting used to suffer in popularity because the game didn’t get much coverage on television by ABC. That changed when ESPN broadcast the game and now it is on the major networks like FOX, NBC and CBS.
Pro Bowl betting is another opportunity for bettors to watch football and be in action. The game is all all-star game which means the best players in the NFL will be playing. Conventional wisdom would say that with the best players in the world participating that the game would draw great television ratings. That is not the case though. The game has limited interest because it is just a glorified scrimmage. Players don’t want to get hurt and players only play about a quarter. Since the intensity level is down it has resulted in not much defense being played and a lot of scoring in Pro Bowl betting. Pro Bowl betting has seen the Pro Bowl odds on the total rise into the mid 60’s. The Pro Bowl betting total on the 2007 game was 65. That number in Pro Bowl odds could be the norm now that teams focus on offense and not much else.
Take a look at Pro Bowl betting this season. You may want to join bettors that have bet the over in Pro Bowl betting. At least by betting the over you can cheer for points the entire game and with little defense being played, you should have a chance to win.
