The Game

The AFC team is led by head coach Mike Tomlin of the Pittsburgh Steelers. He will have his three offensive studs on the team as well. Tom Brady was supposed to get the start at quarterback, but with his team in the Super Bowl – Big Ben Roethlisberger will get the nod. He will turn to Le’Veon Bell in the backfield, and his top receiving threat will be Antonio Brown. Maurkice Pouncey and David DeCastro, along with Alejandro Villaneuva will be protecting him from the defense.

The rest of the AFC features Alex Smith and Derek Carr at quarterback, LeSean McCoy and Kareem Hunt at running back, Keenan Allen, T.Y. Hilton and Jarvis Landry as the receivers, and Delanie Walker and Jack Doyle fill out the tight end position.

In the NFC – Carson Wentz was voted as the team’s quarterback for head coach Sean Payton, but with his injury, Drew Brees will get the nod. Russell Wilson and Jared Goff are the backups for the NFC. Along with Goff, Todd Gurley made the team for the Rams, as the lone skill players on the offensive side. The special teams are loaded with Rams as Johnny Hekker, Pharoh Cooper and Jake McQuaide all made the team.

Todd Gurley and the NFC Team should come in as the 2018 Pro Bowl Betting favorites.

The rest of the skill players for the NFC features the one-two combination of Saints running backs; Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara. The receivers pit Adam Thielen of Minnesota, Michael Thomas of New Orleans and Doug Baldwin of Seattle. Jason Witten and Kyle Rudolph will be the tight ends for the NFC.

Expert Final Analysis

The NFC and AFC will be tough to predict. The odds will be released a little closer to the game, as they are still awaiting any final roster moves. In the end, we are betting on the NFC. The running back combination for the NFC seems to be too deadly for the AFC, and with the AFC as Super Bowl champions, we envision the NFC wanting to win this game more. Our bet will go to the NFC.
