John Harbaugh, who led his Baltimore Ravens to an NFL-best 14-2 record will coach the AFC team. Pete Carroll, head coach of the 11-5 Seattle Seahawks will lead the NFC team.
We should see an electrifying performance from the young, enthusiastic, and uber-talented Lamar Jackson. He should feel comfortable as 12 teammates and his head coach will be present on the field. Look for Derrick Henry to get some quality touches.
For the NFC, Russell Wilson will be throwing to a much upgraded receiver corps. Look for Aaron Rodgers to connect with his favorite receiver, Davante Adams for some decent yardage and a possible score.
The Baltimore Ravens (13) had by far the most Pro Bowl selections of any NFL team. The next closest teams were Minnesota and New Orleans who had eight selections a piece.
There will be two teams not represented at this year’s Pro Bowl. The Miami Dolphins (5-11) and New York Giants (4-12) did not receive a Pro Bowl selection.
The 2020 NFL Pro Bowl will be held at Orlando, Florida’s Camping World Stadium this Saturday, January 26 at 3:00pm ET. Log into your BetUS account to bet on the game and visit the BetUS contests page to buy your betting squares for the big game!
