Pro Bowl Stats – AFC Beats the Odds Sports Betting

The NFL Pro Bowl had its share of haters this year. It was the first time the game had ever been played the week before the Super Bowl, and not after, and it was the first time in the nuclear age that the game was played somewhere other than Hawaii.

But despite all the negative press, this year’s edition of the Pro Bowl was perhaps the most compelling in decades as the AFC narrowly beat out the NFC 41-34 in the final minutes. The game was surprisingly close for a Pro bowl game and in a game that is generally as exciting as a walk-through practice, this year’s game actually had some excitement.

For sports betting fans with a bit of scratch on the line the game was extra exciting as the game remained tied 34-34 late into the fourth quarter. The story of the day was the passing attack as most fans expected. Sure, it’s an all star game, but the Pro Bowl stats in the air were still impressive. The NFC compiled 417 yards passing and the AFC did them one yard better with 418 for the game.

While neither defense could slow down the passing attack the key to the AFC win was the AFC defense’s ability to naturalize the NFC running game. The NFC finished with just 53 yards on the ground; cemented-footed QB Donovan McNabb was the surprisingly rushing leader with 4 carries for 26 yards. WR Vincent Jackson had a monster day for the AFC with 7 catches for 122 yards and TD and a key component in the AFC upset win.
