The AFC team is being led by Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh with Lamar Jackson as the quarterback. The NFC is coached by Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll with Russell Wilson as the quarterback.
Lamar Jackson got a total of 704,699 votes in the fan ballots and is people’s favorite NFL player by more than 164,000 votes. Russell Wilson came in second with roughly 540,000 votes, the Chiefs Superbowl-bound quarterback Patrick Mahomes came in third with 468,838 votes and Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook came in fourth with 431,748 votes.
The Baltimore Ravens players will make up a decent amount of the AFC offense, while the Minnesota Vikings will anchor the NFC defense.
The NFC has lost four out of the five past Pro Bowl matchups. Last year, the NFC lost 26-7. This year, the NFC is a 1.5-point favorite with the over-under at 50.5 points.
The 2020 Pro Bowl will continue the NFL’s long-standing tradition of holding an all-star showcase at the end of the season. After a couple years of experimenting with a draft and captains, the game is now returning to the traditional AFC vs. NFC format for the fourth consecutive season. As usual, fans will have the option to wager on the outcome and many bettors will take this opportunity to get some action on the penultimate contest of the campaign, a final chance before next week’s Super Bowl leads into a long offseason.
The AFC is favored in the 2020 Pro Bowl, laying 1.5 points to their NFC counterparts. The AFC has won all three of the Pro Bowls that have taken place since the NFL ended its experiment with Hall of Famers picking the rosters from the entire pool of talent and will look to extend that run this year. The public has taken note of these trends and is overwhelmingly backing the AFC, with 72% of the wagers and 87% of the money bet against the spread for that conference. The total on the game is 51.5 points, a relatively low number when you consider the average score of the Pro Bowl over the last 15 years has been more than 65 points. Defense has taken center stage in recent years, however, with each of the last three contests landing under the total and the average combined score reaching just 37.7 points across those matchups. Despite this, the public is by and large projecting a high-scoring affair, with a whopping 90% of tickets on the over at this juncture.
