Super Bowl Touchdown Scorer Betting Tips:

  • Isiah Pacheco to Score the First Touchdown @ 11/2 (Adam)
  • Rashee Rice to Score the First Touchdown @ 9/1 (Alan)
  • Christian McCaffrey to Score the First Touchdown @ 10/3 (Jonny)
  • Travis Kelce to Score the First Kansas City Touchdown @ 3/1 (Neil)

Adam: I've also taken Pacheco in my Super Bowl Props Bet selection and am doubling down on him to be the first TD scorer.

'Pop' has had a superb second season, taking over the number one running back role from Clyde Edwards-Helaire and has picked up 12 total touchdowns this year.

Again his best work has been at the back end of the season, racking up seven TD's in his last seven games. Mahomes may march the team down the field with Rice & Kelce but it will be the young 24-year-old Rutgers Uni alum that smashes it into the end zone.

Alan: Rashee Marquan Rice has been a revelation this campaign, and represents a bit of value for me to be the game's first TD scorer. What a rookie season he's enjoying - averaging 11.9 yards per reception, and a top target for Patrick Mahomes.

With the peerless TK double-teamed and worse Rashee's hardly a secret weapon, but he's going to have opportunities - let's hope one comes early in the piece!

Jonny: Probably quite an obvious pick, but I've opted for Christian McCaffrey to score the first touchdown of the game on Sunday.

San Francisco have scored a touchdown on more than half of their first drives this season (10 of 19), while Kansas City have scored a touchdown on just 25% of their opening drives.

McCaffrey has been a reliable source of offense for the Niners, scoring a touchdown in 13 of 18 games this season as well as scoring first for San Francisco on eight occasions.

Neil: It might be the height of boredom but I do think one of the best value punts in a touchdown market is Travis Kelce to be the first Kansas City player to score. The Tight End has long been the most reliable option for Patrick Mahomes in the Red Zone but after a pretty average season, there were those who were starting to question whether he still had the fire.

A return to form however throughout the playoffs has put this notion to bed. The 34-year-old has been as sure-handed as ever and been running extremely crisp routes. He was the first Chief to score a TD in the wins at Buffalo and Baltimore in the previous two rounds and I fully expect his QB to look for him in key situations early.
