And we’ll also discuss potential betting odds and outcomes for this long-awaited matchup.

2022 Pro Bowl betting odds

The NFL Pro Bowl is an annual event that pits the league’s two conferences against each other. Premier players from the AFC face off against the top team members of the NFC in an all-star, end-of-year battle where each side’s 44-player roster is determined by a consensus vote from fans, players and coaches.

Even the league’s top NFL mascots receive an invitation to this coveted faceoff.

Due to the impact of COVID-19 on the 2020-21 season, this weekend marks the first time in two years the Pro Bowl has taken place, making it an even more anticipated event than usual.

Odds for the 2022 Pro Bowl have yet to be posted, as each team’s roster is still being finalized. Now that the Cincinnati Bengals and the Los Angeles Rams are Super Bowl bound, final roster adjustments are being made.

The initial roster was announced Dec. 22 featuring an impressive selection including 31 first-timers, four rookies, seven Indianapolis Colts, six Kansas City Chiefs and six Los Angeles Chargers. Since then, several players on that list have opted out for various reasons, such as injury or Super Bowl contention.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady was expected to make a record-breaking 15th Pro Bowl appearance. Instead, Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson will be replacing him on the NFC side.

And since Bengals RB Joe Mixon is headed to the Super Bowl, Pittsburgh Steelers RB Najee Harris will be taking his place.

Tennessee Titans in 2022 Pro Bowl

After the Tennessee Titans’ impressive year, the AFC roster wouldn’t be complete without at least a few appearances from the AFC runner-ups.

On the defensive end, Titans outside linebacker Harold Landry has been added to the roster in the absence of LA Chargers edge rusher Joey Bosa. DL Jeffrey Simmons has also received a welcome to the team, replacing Chiefs DL Chris Jones. This will be the first Pro Bowl appearance for these third- and fourth-year pros.

Left guard Rodger Saffold also received his first Pro Bowl invitation this week after being excluded from the initial vote. Saffold will serve as the injury replacement for Colts guard Quenton Nelson. The invitation is a longer time coming for Saffold, who has played in the NFL 12 seasons.

Safety Kevin Byard welcomed his second invitation after the initial vote back in December. His first appearance came during the 2017-18 season – his sophomore year in the NFL.

These Titans players won’t be the only ones representing Tennessee, though. The AFC is looking to claim its first Pro Bowl victory since 2012, and this year’s head coach could be the key factor in accomplishing just that.

Since the Titans carry the highest seeding in the AFC, Mike Vrabel was granted the opportunity to serve as coach for this AFC Pro Bowl team.

Tennessee natives in 2022 Pro Bowl

The above-mentioned Titans additions aren’t the only pros playing in the game with roots that lead back to Tennessee.

One player who began his football career playing college ball for the Tennessee Volunteers also joins the AFC lineup. Fifth-year New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara will participate in the game for his fifth consecutive season, becoming the first Saints player to make the Pro Bowl each of his first five seasons.

There even happens to be a player on the NFC side with ties to Tennessee. Minnesota Vikings safety Harrison Smith played high school football in Knoxville, TN at Knoxville Catholic High School (which happens to be my very own alma mater — go Irish!). This will be Smith’s sixth Pro Bowl appearance.

 

The league’s top players take to the field this Sunday, Feb. 6. Bettors can tune into ESPN for kickoff at 3 p.m. ET.
