Pro Bowl Odds Favor AFC

December 1, 2010 NFL Football

Pro Bowl odds have the AFC favored over the NFC. That has been the trend in recent years with Pro Bowl betting.

The AFC has dominated the NFC in the regular season and in the Super Bowl and Pro Bowl odds reflect this fact.

Pro Bowl odds in 2007 had the AFC a four point favorite over the NFC with a total of 65. Surprisingly the NFC covered, losing by only three points and the game stayed under the Pro Bowl odds total of 65. Nate Kaeding kicked a 21-yard field goal as time expired as the AFC won 31-28. The NFC trailed 28-14 with 3 minutes to play. Steven Jackson scored on a fourth-down TD run, and Ronde Barber recovered an onside kick to set up Anquan Boldin’s 47-yard TD catch from Tony Romo with 1:48 left.  Carson Palmer of the AFC, who passed for 190 yards and two touchdowns, got the AFC into scoring position and the AFC won versus the Pro Bowl odds.  Last year saw the AFC win the Pro Bowl for the eighth time in the last 11 Pro Bowls. Pro Bowl odds from 2007 showed that the NFC can cover the spread.  Tony Romo passed for 156 yards in the second half and gave fans that wanted a good game some excitement.

Looking at Pro Bowl betting history we see that the highest scoring team was the NFC squad in 2004 as they put up 55 points.  Three teams in Pro Bowl odds history scored only 3 points in 1984, 1989 and 1994.  That 2004 Pro Bowl was the highest scoring game every in Pro Bowl odds as the NFC won 55-52.  The lowest scoring Pro Bowl in terms of Pro Bowl odds was in 1987 as the AFC beat the NFC 10-6.

Pro Bowl odds are interesting to consider since they are the last chance for bettors to get some NFL betting action.  Many bettors bypass the game but diehard fans always want action in Pro Bowl betting and they consider the Pro Bowl odds.

Take a look at the Pro Bowl betting options available on this year’s game.  Remember that the AFC and the over have been getting the action in recent years but that has not always translated into wins versus the Pro Bowl betting odds.
