LOS ANGELES – While betting on which player will score the first touchdown of the game is a popular bet to make and also offers a nice payout, there are other odds to take it a step further with odds on the opening touchdown parlayed with the winner of the game.
Legal online sportsbooks are offering close to 1.5x more profit on the first TD and game-winner parlay than the regular first touchdown odds.

When looking for the best value on the first touchdown scorer and game-winner Super Bowl odds, look no further than Cooper Kupp and Ja’Marr Chase. Depending on which team gets the ball first, these two are at the top of the target list when it comes to the endzone. Both players lead their teams in redzone completions and redzone touchdowns as well as total touchdowns. With this also being the biggest stage of the season, it is hard seeing both Matthew Stafford and Joe Burrow not look for their most consistent targets right out of the gate.
Low Risk/High Reward
Two players to keep an eye on from both teams with longer odds of scoring the first touchdown and winning the game are Odell Beckham Jr. and Joe Mixon. Starting with Beckham Jr., since joining the Rams midseason, it is clear that his usage has gone up as all five of his touchdowns came with his new team. Beckham has caught the first touchdown of the game with the Rams winning twice this season. Something else to note is that Stafford has thrown his first TD pass of the game to Beckham three total times on the year.
As for Mixon, if the Bengals were to start with the ball and do drive down into the redzone, the chances of Mixon getting the first score are high. Mixon is fourth in the league in touchdowns inside the redzone (11), fourth in touchdowns inside the 10-yard line (9), and fourth in touchdowns inside the five (7). Also, when inside the 10-yard line, the Bengals offense is run almost exclusively through Mixon with over 70% rushing plays.
