On Tuesday, the team announced wide receiver Davante Adams, defensive linemen Kenny Clark, and Za'Darius Smith were added to the rosters headed to Florida this weekend.

He also led the league with 84 disruptions in 2019, and is the first Green Bay Packers linebacker to make the Pro Bowl since Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers in 2015.

This will mark the third straight trip to the Pro Bowl for Adams, making him the first Packers WR to play in three consecutive Pro Bowls since Sterling Sharpe in 1992-94.

Of course, sample size is an issue but these are the spread, moneyline and over/under trends bettors need to know before placing a Pro Bowl wager.

The fun continues at Disney Springs, as on Saturday, fans can head to the Marketplace Stage for the 2020 Pro Bowl Pep Rally. Clark finished second on the team with a career-best 89 tackles (52 solo).

While most consider the Pro Bowl to be merely an exhibition matchup or All-Star game, a staggering amount of work goes into prepping the squad for the big day. Their initial draft slot was 10th, the pick the Kansas City Chiefs acquired to select quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who last season was the NFL's MVP and next Sunday will play in the Super Bowl. He posted the most sacks by any player in his first season with the Packers (since 1982).

Also on Wednesday, the new Pro Bowl Skills Showdown will take place at The Stadium at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. According to Sportradar, Smith was tied for No. 1 among National Football League linebackers in QB hits (37) and No. 2 in total pressures (50.0) during the regular season.
