Starting this Wednesday, January 25th, we are officially in NFL Pro Bowl Week. This is absolutely the perfect moment to shake up and get ready for the most important date in the pro football season: Super Bowl LI. So, take advantage of this week and before the Super Bowl arrives, catch some big bucks with the All-Star Game and skill challenges.

The NFL is making a big effort this year to enhance the Pro Bowl by eliminating the “legends draft” – which took place between 2013 and 2015 – and returning to the classic AFC/NFC format. The reason is that in the last years, the game has been lacking excitement and competition. The All-Star Game, also changed its home, moving from Honolulu, Hawaii, to the Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida. As for this year’s coaches, instead of the Irving-Rice traditional matchup, Kansas City Chiefs’ Andy Reid will coach Team AFC, and Dallas Cowboys’ Jason Garret will coach Team NFC.

Another important issue that the NFL wants to improve by changing the format is minimizing the number of players that decline the invitation to the Pro Bowl. Last year, around 50 players rejected the invitation, whether from an injury or other matters. In the betting industry, this surely became a problem because it is pretty hard for handicappers to come up with solid lines when they are not sure who is playing and who is not.
