NFL Betting – NFC’s Quarterbacks Superior To AFC Backups


2010 Pro Bowl OddsWhile most people are already looking forward to the Super Bowl betting line, keep in mind that we do have one more week of football before we get to the big game. The Pro Bowl has moved to the week before the Super Bowl, which means we won’t be entirely football-free this week. Here is a preview of the NFL’s All-Star Game, which will take place in Hawaii this year.

Gambling Advisor blog Pick : NFC -2

NFL Betting Total: 58.5

Normally, the week between the AFC and NFC Championship Games, and the Super Bowl, is fairly dull. We get excited on the Monday when we find out what the matchup is, handicap it for a couple of days and then by the end of the week, we are tired of all the different speculating and are craving the game already.

This year, Commissioner Roger Gooddell has implemented a change in the hopes that the Super Bowl off week isn’t a dry week, and that NFL fans have something to look forward to this week – regardless of how small – to distract us a little bit from the big game.

This year’s contest lacks luster as the changing of the date has had a big ripple effect on the contest. With the Pro Bowl being played in the week before the Super Bowl, the players on either of the teams in the Super Bowl will not be partaking in the Pro Bowl. Generally speaking, that’s a big deal since the two teams in the Super Bowl are the two best.

It has had a big impact on this year’s roster in particular as the AFC will be without all three of its originally three pick quarterbacks. Tom Brady, Philip Rivers and Peyton Manning will not participate in the game, which thrusts Matt Schaub, Vince Young and David Garrard into the spotlight.

The NFC has a real edge at quarterback as they’ll have Aaron Rodgers, Donovan McNabb and possibly Brett Favre. After the beating Favre took, he’ll likely sit this one out but even so, the NFC has a big edge at the most important position on the field.

The total is tough to handicap but based on the quarterback rotations alone, the pick here has to be the NFC.
