By one measure, Jerry Rice has done his job well as a Pro Bowl captain.
According to multiple line-monitoring websites, the MGM sports books in Nevada have installed Team Rice as a 1.5-point favorite over Team Sanders (captained by Deion Sanders) in Sunday’s Pro Bowl, which airs at 7:30 p.m. Eastern on NBC.
The NFL held a two-day Pro Bowl draft on Tuesday and Wednesday. The league has done away with the by-conference all-star format for 2014. Instead, the teams led by Rice and Sanders picked players.
Finally, there’s no lines for Team Mainland vs. Team Rice or Team Sanders of which we’re aware.
