Ray Lewis Prop Odds
FOXBORO, MA (The Spread) – Ray Lewis could be playing in his final NFL game on Sunday. Will he make it a memorable performance as part of the AFC Championship?
According to oddsmakers from Bovada.lv, Lewis has been given over/under odds of 10 tackles for Sunday’s game against the Patriots. The tackle total will be a combination of solo and assisted tackles.
Lewis has had a tough season. He missed 10 games during the season with an arm injury, but has come back to play in the playoffs. He indicated that he would retire after the playoffs are over, no matter if Baltimore reaches the Super Bowl or not. Lewis had 57 tackles in the six regular season games he played in, which is an average of just under 10 per game. However, Lewis has been on a tear in the playoffs. He picked up 13 tackles in his first game back, a win at home over the Colts. Last week, Lewis managed to rack up 17 tackles in the overtime win at Denver. When the Ravens met the Patriots on Sept. 23, Lewis had 10 tackles to lead Baltimore to a win.
The playoffs have always been a grand stage for Lewis, and he typically brings out his best for the occasion. Last season, Lewis averaged 10 tackles per game in the playoffs and he averaged 10.5 tackles per game in the 2010 NFL playoffs. In 2009, he was just under 10 tackles per game, but in 2007 he had 15 tackles in one playoff appearance. The only notable shortcoming was the 2011 playoffs, when Lewis averaged just 6.5 tackles per game. With his career on the line on Sunday, you’d have to expect Lewis to leave it all on the field and find a way to be near that 10-tackle total, especially against an up-tempo offense like New England.
