Pro Bowl Betting is Often a Huge Challenge

December 1, 2010 NFL Football

Pro Bowl betting has become a thorn in the side of some football fans while other fans continue to be enamored with the NFL’s all star game.

There is really no reason not to love the Pro Bowl odds competition, although at times it can be difficult to accurately handicap the festivities. I mean, who wouldn’t love to see the best 22 players in the league on the field at the same time, it’s just that trying to pick a winner out of the Pro Bowl betting odds can be one of the most challenging things in football.

Pro Bowl betting has a long history of providing entertainment for the fans and major headaches for the Pro Bowl odds makers. But no matter what the sport the all star games are almost always the hardest to try and handicap and the Pro Bowl betting game is certainly no exception to that general rule. When you place players on a team that for the most part have never played together and give them a week to practice together the end result isn’t always as stellar as Pro Bowl odds handicappers might have expected, but at least it’s always entertaining. And so depending on how well the group of players from the NFC gels in comparison with the AFC squad often trumps talent in the Pro Bowl betting outcome.

In most games you can determine a great deal from stats when trying to pick a winner. This is certainly not the case when it comes to Pro Bowl betting action. All the stats are more or less equal when the best of the best get together and so you more or less throw them out the window when trying to evaluate the Pro Bowl odds. Instead, you look at the key positions such as QB and try and determine whether or not one team has an overwhelming advantage at this position or any of the other important skill positions in the Pro Bowl betting competition.

Anther facet of the game to examine when it comes to Pro Bowl betting is the coaching staffs. The coaching always plays a role in every game, but this is especially true when it comes to Pro Bowl betting as all other factors are more or less equal. For example, if the defensive coordinator plays in the same division as the opponents starting QB there is a good chance that he may be able to trump the opponent’s QB based on regular season familiarity.

But there are so many small things that can influence the result of the Pro Bowl betting that it’s important not to become consumed with all the minutia of the game. Instead, examine the Pro Bowl betting lines with as much clarity as possible and then go with your instinct. Pro Bowl betting is so far removed from a science that sometimes it’s best to just go with the team that feels right.
