National Football League Wagering Odds NFC vs AFC Pro Bowl
Seven days down – seven more days to go! After what has been a surprisingly quiet first week on the Super Bowl XLVII watch, the world’s mass media is getting set to ramp up the hype over the next seven days.
Before they do though, there’s the little matter of the NFC vs AFC Pro Bowl to deal with. Kickoff for the NFL All Star game is slated for 7:00 PM ET on January 27, 2013, from Aloha Stadium, in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Brees, Eli Manning, and Wilson set to lead NFC All Stars
With Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers and Falcons QB Matt Ryan licking their playoff loss wounds, Drew Brees, Eli Manning, and rookie QB Russell Wilson will lead the charge for the NFC All Stars. All World running back Adrian Peterson and his trusted lead blocker FB Jerome Felton will be joined in the backfield by Marshawn Lynch and Dough Martin. 49ers RB Frank Gore has bigger fish to fry.
It should fun to watch wide receivers Julio Jones, and Victor Cruz alternate fly patterns across from each throughout the day. Larry Fitzgerald, Vincent Jackson and TE Jason Witten should also have a productive day on offense. We like the NFC QB’s and the firepower they have around them!
Peyton Manning, Schaub, and Luck ready to pilot the AFC All Star selections
Though not the same as a regular season match-up, big brother Peyton will face little brother Eli in the 2013 NFL Pro Bowl. Manning is joined by Matt Schaub and rookie QB Andrew Luck as the AFC starting pivots. Adrian Foster, Jamal Charles, and C.J. Spiller will be led out of the backfield by FB Marcel Reece. Ray Rice and Vonta Leach have been excused to prepare for the Super Bowl.
A.J. Green and Andre Johnson are the starting wide receivers while Manning’s current favorite target Demaryus Thomas is joined by Peyton’s old favorite target Reggie Wayne who makes his sixth Pro Bowl appearance. Who said Luck and Manning couldn’t co-exist on the same team?

We turn to the betonline.ag sportsbook for 2013 NFL Pro Bowl betting odds. The bookmakers at BetOnline seem just as confused as we are when it comes to the outcome of this contest. As the most meaningless (read ridiculous) of any of the All Star games, the point spread has been set at EVEN for this contest. The AFC (-115) is a dime favorite over the NFC (-105) with the juice.
Considering there’s been 96 and 100 points scored in the last two Pro Bowls, we weren’t surprised to see the Over/Under line at 83 (-110) points. In order to have some skin in the game, we’ll reach into our NFL Super Bowl XLVII prop betting “fun money” bankroll to back the AFC with a Franklin at the BetOnline sports wagering website.
