The NFL parlay odds have yet to be released. However, considering how tough the NFC was this season, it wouldn’t be surprising to see them get the nod. Nevertheless, the AFC won the show last season and it wouldn’t be surprising to see them pull in another victory.

Die hard online football betting fans will recall the subtle changes the Pro Bowl underwent last season. Specifically, the event was moved from Hawaii to Florida and was focused more on smaller, more celebratory activities than just one exhibition match.  Additionally, fans got to see their favorite players compete in dodge ball mini-games and things of the sort. All in all, the change was welcomed as most fans enjoyed the light-hearted fun and not to mention, some good odds to bet on.

As an illustration, let’s take a look at which players sportsbook fans can expect to see at the 2018 Pro Bowl. Also, keep in mind that some players will not attend and will be replaced . You can get a complete look at the changes here.

Unsurprisingly, Ben Roethlisberger, Le’Veon Bell, and Antonio Brown all made the cut as well as linebacker Ryan Shazier. Similarly, the Philadelphia Eagles and New Orleans Saints came behind the Steelers with a total of 6 Pro Bowl selections. Notwithstanding those awesome feats, there were several teams without a Pro Bowl selection this year. So, the Green Bay Packers, Indianapolis Colts, New York Jets, Cleveland Browns and Chicago Bears were all a part of that shameful list. Although, some teams, like the Packers, have had players called up as replacements.
