The illustration of a football.  American number one sport. Stylized. Are you the type of person that enjoys betting on meaningless all-star games? Are you the type of person that likes to bet on games where the two teams aren't really interested in playing?

If so, you are in for a special treat on Sunday, as the AFC-NFC Pro Bowl is set to take place at the Orlando Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Florida.

A number of players who were elected to the Pro Bowl decided to sit out due to nagging injuries - the offensive starters for the two teams look something like this:


Jarvis Landry
T.Y. Hilton
Joe Thomas
Taylor Lewan
Kelechi Osemele
David DeCastro
Rodney Hudson
Travis Kelce
Alex Smith
Demarco Murray
Kyle Juszcyzyk


Odell Beckham Jr.
Tyron Smith
Trent Williams
Zack Martin
Trai Turner
Travis Frederick
Greg Olsen
Dak Prescott
Ezekiel Elliott
Mike Tolbert doesn't have the second WR starter for the NFC listed, though the possibilities are one of Dez Bryant, Mike Evans or Larry Fitzgerald.

With Antonio Brown, Le'Veon Bell, Derek Carr and others missing the game for the AFC, the NFC has a decided advantage heading into Sunday. Here are the current betting odds for the game:

Straight Up:

NFC, 1/2
AFC, 17/10


AFC +4.5, 5/6
NFC -4.5, 5/6

Total Points

Over 82, 10/11
Under 82, 10/11


As you can see, the game is expected to be devoid of defence, as everybody is intent on avoiding injury so the game will be played in a very light fashion.
