Prediction: Team Irvin 52, Team Carter 45

In another Pro Bowl offensive shootout, Team Irvin has a slightly stronger defense that will come up with just enough stops to come away with the win. Odell Beckham, Jr. will steal the show for the Team Irvin offense and walk away with the award for the 2015 Pro Bowl MVP.
