The NFL Pro Bowl 2016 live stream online and televised game coverage takes place on Sunday night, just as pro hockey is hosting its All-Star game. One game takes place on the ice in Nashville, with the stars of professional football playing in warm and sunny Honolulu, Hawaii. Among the talent involved in this year’s matchup will be Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, Giants quarterback Eli Manning, receiver Odell Beckham Jr., and running back Adrian Peterson. Two teams will go at it on the field as selected by former Pro Bowl stars Michael Irvin and Jerry Rice, who are now team captains. The 2016 NFL Pro Bowl live streaming and TV coverage will be available thanks to ESPN networks Sunday night.
On Jan. 31, the NJ.com website reported that Team Rice’s starting lineup includes Eli Manning starting as quarterback, with Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry starting receivers. Adrian Peterson is the starting running back with John Kuhn as the fullback. Also on their starting lineup will be Joe Staley, Logan Mankins, Nick Mangold, Richie Incognito, Kyle Long, Travis Kelce on offense. For defense, it will be Khalil Mack, Aaron Donald, Fletcher Cox, Everson Griffen, Tamba Hali, Clay Matthews, Julius Peppers, Marcus Peters, Vontae Davis, Mike Adams and Eric Berry.
Team Irvin is the surprising favorite for the game, possible due to them having Russell Wilson as the starting quarterback. He’s joined by receivers A.J. Green and Julio Jones, also two of the league’s best. Also on offense are Devonta Freeman, Patrick DiMarco, Tyler Eifert, Tyron Smith, Zack Martin, Travis Frederick, David Decastro and Branden Albert. Defensive starters include Michael Bennett, Calais Campbell, Geno Atkins, Ezekiel Ansah, Lavonte David, Navarro Bowman, Anthony Barr and Richard Sherman. Cornerback Desmond Truant as well as safeties Reshad Jones and Malcolm Jenkins round out the defensive starters.
It seems like these are usually toss up games which are just entertainment for the fans and players, but they still release odds on them. Vegas odds makers first listed Team Irvin as a favorite by three points when the line opened. Since then, various books have Team Irvin favored by just a point. The over/under points total is set around 73 to 75 points for the game at various books. This game precedes the Super Bowl which is just a week from Sunday and sees the Carolina Panthers favored by 5-1/2 to six points over Denver to win the championship.
