The NFL Pro Bowl is Sunday in Orlando, featuring many of the best players who aren’t getting ready for the Super Bowl. It’s a celebration of the game, a showcase of skills on both sides of the ball — and it usually features one touchdown after another.
Vegas has set the Over-Under for the 2018 Pro Bowl at 67.5, which is down from an open of 71. The total had dropped all the way to the mid-60s before rebounding, but that’s still over 20 points higher than the season average of 43 points. The NFC is favored by three.
To assess the total, especially one that’s had so much movement already, there’s no better person to get advice from than Mike Tierney.
The SportsLine expert has a gift for picking NFL totals. A national sportswriter who has reported from seven Super Bowls, Tierney excels both against the spread and straight-up, but he’s as good as it gets when it comes to placing Over-Under bets.
Over the last two NFL seasons, Tierney is an incredible 52-29 on NFL totals — $100 bettors are up over $2,000 on his Over-Under picks alone.
He nailed the NFC Championship last Sunday by taking the Over and now Tierney has found a few big reasons to take a side on the Over-Under for the Pro Bowl.
