One popular area for prop bets in Super Bowl LIV includes the markets for scoring. Who will score the first touchdown in the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers showdown?
Sammy Watkins for the KC Chiefs is a player that should garner some attention in the betting markets for touchdowns. Watkins wasn’t exactly “go-to” for the regular season. But coach Andy Reid felt confidence in throwing his way in the conference championship. QB Patrick Mahomes connected with Watkins no less than seven times in the conference championship which included one completion for a touchdown. With that kind of performance in a big game, don’t be surprised if something is designed for Watkins in the Super Bowl. You can get him at $21 with BetEasy for the first TD.
The entire Chiefs defence also looks good for the first TD of the game. Priced at $26.00 with Sportsbet, you can’t go wrong with this market as only a small bet is necessary to make things interesting. San Francisco QB, Jimmy Garoppolo, has been handing the ball off time and time again in the current playoffs. Perhaps, that’s because he threw 13 INTs in the regular season. When it comes to winning the Super Bowl, you need a diverse attack and the Chiefs are going to try to force Jimmy G. to throw. He probably won’t be able to do it to standard and a big play going the other way may result. At $26, you have to love having the Chiefs defence for a pick-6.
Patrick Mahomes at $26.00 is a good bet too for the first TD scorer. Mahomes gets rushing yardage here and there. In the last round, he did scramble 27 yards for a major. He has 15 rushing attempts in the two playoff games he played this year. At $26 with Ladbrokes, the odds look good on him. Add in Mahomes for the first-TD betting prop.
