Pro Bowl betting will be featured before Super Bowl betting this season with the Pro Bowl being played on Sunday, January 31st with the Super Bowl the following week.
High scores have been normal in Pro Bowl odds recently including last year when 51 points were scored.
Pro Bowl betting has seen the game at Honolulu, Hawaii for the last 30 years but not this year. This year the game will be played at the site of Super Bowl XLIV in Miami. It will also not include the players from the two Super Bowl teams. How this affects the Pro Bowl betting odds remains to be seen. The game should still be high scoring though since defense is just not something that is played much in All-Star games. The next two years the Pro Bowl will return to Hawaii.
Pro Bowl betting has seen the NFC lead the series 20-19 including last year’s win in Pro Bowl odds. Since the series is so close with the NFC leading just by one game, you can make a case for either side. Since the NFC won last year it might be wise to take the AFC in Pro Bowl betting. The teams had alternated wins and losses until last season when the NFC made it two straight in Pro Bowl betting. It will also be important to look at the rosters in Pro Bowl betting and look and see which teams will be hurt by missing their Super Bowl players.
The recent trend in Pro Bowl betting is for a lot of points to be scored. That does not, however, mean the game always goes over the Pro Bowl odds. 51 points is considered a lot but last year the game went under the Pro Bowl betting total. Two years ago in Pro Bowl betting the teams combined for 72 points and three years ago it was 59 points. The 2006 game only had 40 points scored in Pro Bowl odds but the 2005 game had 65 points, the 2004 game a huge 107 points, the 2003 game 65 points, the 2002 game 68 points, the 2001 game 55 points and the 2000 game had 82 points in Pro Bowl odds. It is tough taking a game over in Pro Bowl betting when the total is in the 60’s but history has shown that is still the way to go.
