NFL Pro Bowl Betting

The 2008 Pro Bowl rosters have been set for weeks and now all we await is for the sportsbook to post a point spread on the game.

Some bettors may take a pass on betting on the Pro Bowl game, but that in my opinion is a mistake. While the game is the annual NFL All Star Game, it does offer some wagering value. One of the best handicapping angles of late is going against the the conference that won the Super Bowl

It will be interesting to see what pointspread the lines-makers post on this game as the AFC clearly has a huge edge on paper over the NFC in most of the offensive skill positions.
