The AFC will try to keep the defense off balance with its dual-threat quarterbacks when it battles the NFC in the 2020 Pro Bowl on Sunday in Orlando. Likely league MVP Lamar Jackson of the Ravens and Houston’s Deshaun Watson will be trying to lead the team to its fourth consecutive victory. The AFC leads the all-time series 24-22 and won decisively last year, 26-7, after scoring the first 20 points.
Kickoff is at 3 p.m. ET from Camping World Stadium in Orlando. Sportsbooks peg the AFC as a 1.5-point favorite in the latest 2020 Pro Bowl odds, with the over-under for total points set at 50.5. Before you make any 2020 Pro Bowl picks or NFL predictions, see what elite NFL expert R.J. White has to say.
CBS Sports’ NFL editor, White owns two recent huge cashes in the world’s most prestigious handicapping tournament, the Westgate Las Vegas SuperContest. He tied for 18th out of 2,748 contestants in 2017 with a 52-29-4 mark against the spread. It wasn’t a fluke, either, as he also cashed big-time in the 2015 SuperContest.
Over the past month, White has nailed 67 percent of his NFL picks against the spread at SportsLine, going 14-7. Anyone who has followed him is way up. Now, White has studied the rosters for the Pro Bowl 2020 and released another confident point-spread pick. You can go here to see it. Here are several NFL betting lines for the AFC vs. the NFC in the 2020 Pro Bowl:
- AFC vs. NFC spread: AFC -1.5
- AFC vs. NFC over-under: 50.5
- AFC vs. NFC money line: NFC -115, AFC -105
- AFC: Led by coach John Harbaugh, QB Lamar Jackson

Why the NFC can cover
Offensively, the NFC is overflowing with dynamic options. At quarterback, Russell Wilson and Kirk Cousins are all capable of big things, with a highly-competitive pedigree on the field. When it comes to skill players, though, the NFC has a bevy of talent that can present issues for the AFC.
