This year the NFL announced that the Pro Bowl is going virtual, meaning that there will be no traditional game due to COVID 19, but instead, the all-star game will take place via multiple Madden 21 matchups.
Since there is no actual game this year, the 2021 NFL Pro Bowl will take place over the course of a week with Madden 21 matchups featuring celebrities, NFL Legends, current players, and top streamers taking control of the sticks. The matchups will be available to watch over multiple streaming platforms.
Madden 21 is EA Sports officially licensed NFL game that is available on multiple gaming consoles. EA Sports has also announced that downloadable content will be available for game owners and will feature current rosters for players to play at home.

Much like betting on the Super Bowl, 2021 Pro Bowl odds will be available online from sportsbooks that cater to Philippine players. Once the matchups are announced, multiple online betting sites will offer odds on the matchups.
Betting on sports simulations has grown in popularity since the pandemic essentially shutdown professional sports in 2020. While the option was already in place, many online betting sites have started offering more simulations and even esport matchups.
The 2021 Pro Bowl rosters have been announced, but EA Sports is giving fans the option to vote two additional players into the final lineup. EA Sports will pick the two additional players by allowing players to score touchdowns with virtual candidates in head-to-head matchups for two weeks before Pro Bowl week.
Philippine gambling laws allow online sports betting on the Pro Bowl as long as the sportsbook is located outside of the Philippines. Domestic sportsbooks are also legal but can only offer odds on events based outside of the Philippines.
Pro Bowl week is scheduled for January 26th – 29th. Who are some celebrity or athlete matchups you would like to see? Leave comments below.
