Ray Lewis Prop Odds
NEW ORLEANS, LA (The Spread) – Ray Lewis is playing in his final NFL game on Sunday in Super Bowl XLVII. Will he have an MVP-like performance against the 49ers?
According to oddsmakers from Bovada.lv, Lewis has been given 7/1 odds to win the Super Bowl MVP Award and 50/1 odds to score the first touchdown in Sunday’s game. He also has been given over/under odds of 11.5 tackles for the contest.
Lewis won the Super Bowl MVP Award in 2001 when he led Baltimore to a win over the Giants. Lewis played in just six games during the regular season this year, but had 57 tackles in those six games. That worked out to an average of 9.5 per game. Lewis has been a big force for the Ravens’ defense in the playoffs. He has had at least 13 tackles in all three playoff games and has a total of 44 in the three games, which is an average of just under 15.
Lewis has played with a lot of motivation since announcing he would retire at the end of this playoff run. He has left everything on the field each game and is flying to the ball. In Sunday’s game, he should have plenty of opportunities to make tackles as the 49ers do plenty of running and passing over the middle of the field. Lewis could find himself having to cover Vernon Davis at times and also have to shadow Colin Kaepernick for possible quarterback runs. Lewis also might have an easier road to the MVP Award due to his story of retiring after the game. That could help garner a few extra votes.
