Pro Bowl Three-Game Flag Football
The Pro Bowl is unique this year, which is why it’s important for us to understand exactly what we’re betting on if we decide to go with the NFC or AFC.
Unlike past seasons, the Pro Bowl Festival takes place from Thursday to Sunday. The only betting option is on the three-game flag football mini-tournament that happens on Sunday.
The winner will be determined by a points system. So the team that has the most points at the end of the flag football tournament takes the victory.
Before getting to why you should be on either side, it’s important to understand flag football rules:
1. 7 players on each side
2. Center hikes the ball
3. Center then takes a knee
That’s pretty much it. On to our analysis and free pick.
Why bet on the NFC to beat the AFC
Consistency is key and Eli has a lot of Vikings to work with. If he starts Kirk Cousins, Dalvin Cook, and Justin Jefferson, and then decides to have a player like George Kittle hike the ball and take a knee, Eli should have the edge.
Cousins, Cook, and Jefferson played together in every game during the regular season. The trio will be on the same page, which means Eli’s squad will move the ball no problem.
NFC Coach: Eli Manning
NFC Projected Offense Skill Position Starting Line-up
- QB – Kirk Cousins, Vikings
- RB – Dalvin Cook, Vikings
- RB – Saquon Barkley, Giants
- WR – Terry McLaurin, Commanders
- WR – Justin Jefferson, Vikings
- WR – CeeDee Lamb, Cowboys
- TE – George Kittle, 49ers
Why bet on the AFC to beat the NFC
On paper, Peyton’s team has more talent. Lawrence, Chub, Jacobs, Diggs, Hill, and Chase are as good as it gets.
Not only does Peyton’s squad seem more talented, but Peyton could mix it up. For example, Tyreek, Ja’Marr, or Nick could play quarterback. Lawrence is a good enough athlete to sit on the outside and catch passes from those guys.
AFC Coach: Peyton Manning
AFC Projected Offense Skill Position Starting Line-up
- QB – Trevor Lawrence, Jaguars
- RB – Nick Chubb, Browns
- RB – Josh Jacobs, Raiders
- WR – Stefon Diggs, Bills
- WR – Tyreek Hill, Dolphins
- WR – Ja’Marr Chase, Bengals
- TE – Mark Andrews, Ravens
Final Betting Analysis: Pro Bowl NFC vs. AFC Three-Game Flag Football
When it comes to actual football, the one with pads, a cohesive team almost always outplays it’s more talented opponent.
But Sunday’s three games are flag football contests. So in this case, talent trumps cohesiveness. No doubt, the NFC will play hard. However, Peyton has way more weapons.
The older Manning bro has more pieces he can work with, which means Peyton has more flexibility. Give the older Manning the edge. Back the AFC to cash.
