As a kid growing up a football fan and wanting to play in the NFL, what is the number one thing everyone wants to do? Score a touchdown in the Super Bowl. In 2021 for Super Bowl 55, you can bet on which players will do just that at DraftKings Sportsbook. Touchdown props are one of the more popular betting markets for legal NFL betting, but with this expected offensive explosion in Super Bowl 55, it will be a very popular market.
The opening odds for Super Bowl 55 have been released, but not just the traditional lines of spreads, moneylines, and totals. One of the most fun ways to wager on the Super Bowl is to wager on touchdown props. At DraftKings Sportsbook, you can wager on which player will score a touchdown first, last, and bet on a player to score an anytime touchdown. Let’s take a look at the touchdown betting market, some value, and which players are most likely to score a touchdown in Super Bowl 55.
TB Bucs vs. KC Chiefs Super Bowl Touchdown Props
|Player||To Score First||To Score Last||Anytime TD|
|Ronald Jones II||+1800||+1800||+225|
The above touchdown odds are courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook, and the prices show just how many talented offensive football players there are. There are a whopping 15 players on this list between two offenses that have odds of 3:1 or better to score a touchdown in the Super Bowl. Keep in mind, the maximum number of offensive players eligible to score a touchdown on a given play is six, and there are 15 total players listed with odds of 3:1 or better. This does not even include Tom Brady, who is +450 to score a touchdown. Of course, it is harder for QBs to score touchdowns as they are not necessarily seen as runners, but there is value there.
The first thing that sticks out of course is the two superstar skill players in Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill, whose prices are both -175 to score a touchdown at any time, in addition to +600 to score the first touchdown. For the Bucs, a trio of Fournette, Evans, and Godwin are all between +1060 and +1300 to score first, but are all +150 or better to score anytime.
Bet on Travis Kelce to Score a TD in the Super Bowl
Travis Kelce is -175 to score a touchdown at any time in the Super Bowl, which seems like heavy odds. But, there are ways to use this to your advantage. You can wager on Kelce to score the first (or last) touchdown at +600, or you can pair this with his yardage and/or catch prop in same-game parlays as well. Kelce has been a touchdown machine in 2020-2021, as he scored 11 touchdowns in 15 games in the regular season. So far in the playoffs, he has three scores in two games.
The last time Kelce did not score in a game was November 29th, against the Tampa Bay Bucs. He did catch all eight of his targets, however. There is no doubt that Kelce will be a popular part of Andy Reid’s gameplan for the Super Bowl, and the -175 odds to score a touchdown show that.
Rob Gronkowski Super Bowl Props: +225 Anytime Touchdown Scorer
There are eight players that are more likely to score a touchdown in Super Bowl 55 than Rob Gronkowski. Do you agree with those odds? If not, betting on him to score at +225 is a great value. This was not a great season statistically by Gronkowski’s standards, as he had just seven touchdowns and 623 receiving yards. With that said, the best game of his 2020-2021 season came against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 12 where he caught six of seven targets for 107 yards.
While Gronkowski does not have a touchdown yet in the NFL playoffs, he has been targeted in the red zone. At +225, he is a bargain and Tom Brady will certainly look for him as a size mismatch in the red zone.
Super Bowl 55 Touchdown Props – Bet on Patrick Mahomes
While a popular bet will certainly be Patrick Mahomes to win Super Bowl MVP, he has terrific odds to score a touchdown in the Super Bowl as well. Of course, this does not include passing touchdowns as it is the player that crosses the goal line with the football to “score a touchdown”.
Mahomes is +275 to score a touchdown, and +2200 to score the first touchdown. In 2020-2021, Mahomes had 10 carries inside the 20, and six carries inside the 10. In addition, on both of Mahomes’ carries inside the five yard line, he scored. With this being Super Bowl week, there is no holding back and Mahomes’ athleticism will be on full display after a few weeks to rest his turf toe injury. We’ve seen Andy Reid call his number on speed options this season, and +275 is too much of a value to ignore, and it could boost your single-game parlay odds as well.
