Patrick Willis Prop Odds
NEW ORLEANS, LA (The Spread) – Patrick Willis is the leader of the San Francisco defense. Will he lead the unit to a win in Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday against the Ravens?
According to oddsmakers from Bovada.lv, Willis has been given 40/1 odds to win the Super Bowl MVP Award for Sunday’s game. He has also been given over/under odds of 8 tackles for the game.
Willis had a total of 120 tackles during the regular season for the 49ers. He played in all 16 games this season 7.5 tackles per game. In the playoffs, Willis has 19 tackles in the two San Francisco games. He is averaging 9.5 per game in the postseason, with a high of 12 in the Conference Championship Game against Atlanta. Willis has recorded at least 8 tackles in just eight of the team’s 18 games throughout the season.
Willis could have trouble making tackles in this game based on Baltimore’s recent outburst in the passing game. The key for him will be how much the Ravens plan to run the ball with Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce. If Baltimore feels like it can attack San Francisco through the air, especially deep, Willis may not have many chances to make tackles. He could find himself covering the middle of the field against the likes of Dennis Pitta and Anquan Boldin, which would open the door for some tackle opportunities.
