NFL Wagering – AFC vrs NFC Pro Bowl NFL Odds

This is the first time in sports betting history that the Pro Bowl has not been played in Hawaii. It’s also the first time in NFL odds history that the game will be played the week before the Super Bowl and not after. With so many changes going on in this year’s betting NFL all star game it’s good to know that some things will remain the same and that’s the fact that offense always trumps defense in the Pro Bowl.

Towards that end there are several things which must go right for the AFC to win this match of NFL wagering superstars. On defense the AFC squad must stop the big strike capabilities of WR DeSean Jackson and Miles Austin. These guys make their living making big plays downfield and have the stats to prove it.

Jackson averaged a mind-boggling 18.5 ypc over the season and Austin a healthy 16.3 yards every time he caught the ball. AFC defenders cannot let them get behind them in pass routes. On offense the AFC must take advantage of the speed of RB Chris Johnson. Johnson figures to be the best player on the field at any given time and the AFC, with it’s limited talent at the QB spot must find a way to exploit the running talent of Johnson (2,006 yards, 5.6 average, 14 TDs).

The team doesn’t necessarily have to hand the ball to him every down but they have to find a way to get it in his hands whether it’s a screen or wheel route or some other delivery in space. If nothing else, they can use Johnson as a decoy for play action, but they must utilize his speed and talent.
