But before you make a pick on the 2018 Pro Bowl, have a look at who the R.J White, a Sportline stat geek is backing. This will give you a clear picture on what to expect in this game. Also take look at the just released Steelers odds, who are expected to do well in the coming season.
It is said that 2017 NFL season was a very profitable period for those who took their time to listen to White. Currently, he's placed in the first position as an NFL expert for SportLine. He also finished the top after the recently concluded Las Vegas SuperContest. This was his second cash in 3 years of participating in the most prestigious sporting competition. Definitely this was not a fluke, where for the two seasons, he has managed to finish in the top 2 percent. Most of the people who followed his advice reaped big on the paydays.
As we speak, he has already given all angles of this game pitting the best of NFC and AFC, and finally locked in his pick. All this is available for you at SportLine. According to White, Derek Carr, Ben Roethlisberger and Alex Smith are the main under center players for the AFC, while Jared Goof, Russell Wilson and Drew Brees, will quarterback for the NFC. In total, there are 76 passing touchdowns for AFC during the regular season and 85 TDs for the NFC. Antonio Brown (Steelers WR), will be the one to catch passes for the AFC. Keenan Allen, T.Y. Hilton and Jarvis Landry will be the recievers for the AFC.
The NFC side has strong receivers who include Michael Thomas, Adam Thielen, Davante Adams and Doug Baldwin. During the regular season, Thielen was fifth with almost 1,300. Michael Thomas come fourth in catches of 20 yards with 22. Last year, AFC won by 20-13 in a very defensive duel. Before the last year Pro Bowl game, the teams used to alternate their wins for five years.
The NFC side will coached by Saints' Sean Payton, while the AFC teams will have Steelers' Mike Tomlin. The Jaguars' Jalen Ramsey, Malik Jackson and A.J. Bouye will all be joining AFC after experiencing a disappointing week in the hands of Patriots during the Championship Game. Those expected to suit up for the NFC side will include Vikings' Xavier Rhodes, Kyle Rudolph, Harrison Smith, Linval Joseph and Adam Thielen. This comes after they were demolished by Eagles who were the Super Bowl LII favorites. Whether the Jags and Vikings stars will make a difference remains to be seen.
With the two sides bringing on board their best stars, White has evaluated all the circumstances and its no surprise that he's leaning over one side after identifying the strong x-factor.
