- The AFC has won the last three Pro Bowls.
- Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh will be coaching the AFC in the Pro Bowl.
- The NFC set a Pro Bowl record with 62 points scored in 2013.
ORLANDO, Fla. – Many of the best players in the NFL have spent the entire week in Orlando preparing for the 2020 NFL Pro Bowl. The NFC will look to snap their three-game losing streak in the Pro Bowl while also trying to put up more than the seven points they scored in last year's game.
The annual event is a fan favorite as it allows them access to some of the biggest stars in the NFL. The Pro Bowl has provided some memorable moments and that expectation carries into this year as the NFL tries to find ways to make this game more competitive and fun for the players without risking injury.
This year the NFC will be coached by the Seattle Seahawks coaching staff led by Pete Carroll and the AFC will be led by Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh. Both coaches have won a Super Bowl in their coaching careers and saw their teams eliminated in the Divisional Round of the playoffs this season.
Various U.S. online sportsbooks have the AFC as narrow 1.5-point favorites to win their fourth straight Pro Bowl. The first half spread in this game also favors the AFC with a -0.5-point spread.
A win for the AFC would give the Conference a 25-22 record against the NFC. The AFC will start assumed NFL MVP Lamar Jackson at the quarterback position and he’ll be backed up by Houston Texans signal-caller Deshaun Watson.
The NFC will give the start to Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and he’ll be backed up by future Hall of Famers in New Orleans Saints legend Drew Brees and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Expect every quarterback to put points on the board in what should be a high scoring game.
The point total for this year's Pro Bowl is set at 51 and the safest bet seen by sports bettors for this game is to take the Over because little defense will be played by both teams in this exhibition game.
Online sportsbooks have yet to release any player prop bets for the Pro Bowl but one player to roll the dice on in this game is AFC quarterback Lamar Jackson. Many expect him to rush for more yards than he throws for in this game.
The 2020 Pro Bowl will be held on Sunday, at Camping World Stadium in Orlando with a 3:00 p.m. EST kick-off. The game will be broadcasted on ABC and will be able to be streamed on the ESPN app.
