View Updated 2013 Super Bowl Odds

According to oddsmakers from Bovada.lv, Mayo has been given over/under odds of 9 tackles for Sunday’s AFC Championship Game. Those tackles can be a combination of solo + assisted.

Mayo had an impressive season for New England. The fifth-year linebacker out of Tennessee had 146 tackles. It was the second-highest season tackle total Mayo has had in his career. Mayo had at least 9 tackles in nine of the team’s 16 games during the regular season. In last week’s playoff victory, Mayo had just seven tackles against the Texans. In five career playoff games, Mayo has had at least 9 tackles in three of those five contests.

A lot of times tackles come based on opportunity. Baltimore could game plan to avoid Mayo as best it can, which will obviously impact the wager. However, the Ravens will likely give him plenty of opportunities. Mayo recorded 11 tackles against the Ravens in a game this season on Sept. 23. The Ravens’ offense utilizes a pair of running backs in Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce, so Mayo will play a role in the run stopping. Rice also does a lot of pass catching in the middle of the field, which could give Mayo a chance to get some tackles. Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco also targets tight end Dennis Pitta and receiver Anquan Boldin in the middle of the field often.
