Pro Bowl odds have been out for several weeks now and continue to shift as the game approaches.
Until the Super Bowl is done and over with not a lot of the sporting community will be paying much attention to the Pro Bowl odds, but for the betting fan who takes an early inertest in the Pro Bowl betting it could pay off big. One of the best ways to prep for the Pro Bowl odds is to compare the AFC and NFC rosters and try and find the relative strengths and weaknesses heading into the Pro Bowl betting showdown.
Pro Bowl odds makers have to like what they see when they look at the AFC Pro Bowl betting roster. The strength of this unit undoubtedly lies on the defensive side of the ball. With the Steelers, Ravens and Titans composing some of the most punishing defenses the NFL has seen in some time, it’s no surprise that the AFC Pro Bowl odds squad is loaded with players from these teams. The Steelers headline this group of Pro Bowl odds defenders with NFL Defensive Player of the Year James Harrison and All-Pro safety Troy Palamalu. But those are hardly the only players that the NFC Pro Bowl odds offense has to watch out for. The Ravens are sending future Hall of Famers Ray Lewis and Ed Reed to the Pro Bowl odds show down and linebacker Terrel Suggs will go as a back up. From the Titans the NFC Pro Bowl odds squad will also see run-stuffer Albert Haynesworth and CB Cortland Finnegan.
On offense the AFC’s squad isn’t as strong and this is where the team will take a hit in the Pro Bowl odds. At QB, you couldn’t find a better starting QB for a Pro Bowl odds match up than Peyton Manning. He’s started a zillion of these Pro Bowl betting match ups and his football IQ is so high that he can easily adapt to his receivers. However, his supporting cast is not on the same level as his Pro Bowl odds counterparts in the NFC and if the AFC is to be the ultimate winner in the Pro Bowl odds, it will fall on Manning’s shoulders. At running back Thomas Jones is no match for the NFC starting backfield of Adrian Peterson. And at the wide out position Andre Johnson is as good as you’ll see in the Pro Bowl odds competition, but the rest of the receiving corps of Brandon Marshall, Wes Welker and Reggie Wayne doesn’t seem nearly as explosive on paper as the NFC Pro Bowl odds roster. But that’s why they play the game.
