It will be the first time in Pro Bowl betting history that the game will be played before the Super Bowl.
Pro Bowl odds have the game being played at Dolphins Stadium on Sunday, January 31st which will also host Super Bowl XLIV on February 7th. Pro Bowl betting has the NFC leading the all-time series 20-19. Last year the NFC won by a score of 30-21 as Larry Fitzgerald won the MVP. Normally Pro Bowl odds see the game from Hawaii but not this year. The game moves back to Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii for next season.
Pro Bowl odds are going to be unpredictable this time because many of the players that were selected are not going to play. For the first time ever, the players from the Super Bowl teams won’t be able to play. Since the Super Bowl follows Pro Bowl betting, the players from the two Super Bowl teams won’t be in the game. Another player that likely won’t be playing is Minnesota quarterback Brett Favre who was elected to a record 11th Pro Bowl. He has only played in the game four times and even if the Vikings don’t make the Super Bowl, don’t expect to see Favre in Pro Bowl odds. The last time Favre actually played in a Pro Bowl was after the 1996 season. If Favre did decide to show up he would be on the same team as his former Green Bay teammate Aaron Rodgers. Favre was among eight Minnesota Vikings who were elected to the Pro Bowl. That means if the Vikings make the Super Bowl there will be a lot of spots open and that may affect Pro Bowl betting.Indianapolis had six players selected for the Pro Bowl including quarterback Peyton Manning who was selected for the 10th time. All six of the quarterbacks selected to the Pro Bowl made the playoffs so it is very likely Pro Bowl odds will include replacements. Drew Brees is the starter for the NFC at quarterback while Manning is the AFC starter. Pro Bowl odds have other stars including Tennessee running back Chris Johnson who went over 2,000 yards this season and Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson who led the league in scoring. Pro Bowl betting showed that Dallas and Philadelphia had six players each selected while New Orleans had five.
