Pro Bowl Betting and the Role of the QB

December 1, 2010 NFL Football

Pro Bowl betting is not all that different from normal football wagering in some respects.

Sure, when it comes time to analyze the Pro Bowl odds there are many different factors to take into account. However, when you get down to the nuts and bolts of the Pro Bowl betting the most important position on the field is still the QB, and QB is the position that needs to be examined the most thoroughly when weighing the Pro Bowl odds.

Pro Bowl betting fans can surely remember the outstanding plays of the quarterbacks, or the lack thereof, year in and year out in the Pro Bowl odds competition when one side is dominated. Just as in the regular season the demands on a QB are high and it’s up to that player to make split second decisions as to where to pass the ball and to adjust play calling at the line of scrimmage if necessary. These are major demands on a player whether it’s the regular season or the Pro Bowl betting competition. True, the pressure is slightly less in the Pro Bowl odds contest, but that doesn’t make it any less important.

In many ways, playing QB in the Pro Bowl betting competition is actually much more difficult as the player has to familiarize himself with a new system and new players and that has often led to disaster for some starting QBs in the Pro Bowl odds competition. This year, at least for the NFC there be plenty of familiarity in the Pro Bowl betting starting lineups as starting QB Kurt Warner will be throwing to his two normal wide outs, Anquan Boldin and Larry Fitzgerald –to be sure this is more than just a small advantage for the NFC team in the Pro Bowl betting. However, in normal years, the starting QB would have to get accustomed to all his new Pro Bowl betting teammates, and sometimes that adjustment just doesn’t happen.

For any Pro Bowl betting fan that doubts the importance of these factors in the role QB they need only check the list of MVP award winners in past Pro Bowl betting games. QBs have won 13 MVP Pro Bowl betting awards over the past 35 years. This year Kurt Warner and Peyton Manning will be leading their respective Pro Bowl betting teams into battle. And while Manning is generally regarded as the better QB in this Pro Bowl betting match up, having his own receivers will no doubt be a huge advantage for Warner.
