Super Bowl LIII First Touchdown Tips - Who will score the opening TD?

The Super Bowl can't get here fast enough for NFL fans and we've got you covered on the First Touchdown markets with some value selections.

First and foremost, you have to think about nerves. When you are looking at who is going to score the first TD in the game, you are likely thinking about early-game performers. 

That's not to say that a TD will definitely be scored early in the game but this is a market where being cool, calm, and collected matters from the onset. If anyone is going to be nervous in this game then it's probably going to be players on the LA Rams.

The explanation for that is simple enough: Tom Brady has been to the Super Bowl many times and he has won the MVP enough times too. There's no way nerves are going to affect his performance. 

You can't say the same thing about Jared Goff as he makes his Super Bowl debut. Nerves can dissipate after some time passes, but the First-TD scorer markets are ones where the Patriots' players should be favoured a little by bettors.

Sportsbet offer $46 on Any Patriots' defensive player or special-teams player scoring the first TD. You can envision that happening for the defense if Goff is, in fact, on the shaky side in the opening drive or an early one.

Standout receiver Julian Edelman is $11.00 to score the first TD at Ladbrokes and is a player you should have on your side. Meanwhile, longshots Chris Hogan ($23 Sportsbet) and Rob Gronkowski ($15 Ladbrokes) can't be ignored either. 

Edelman, Gronk, and Hogan all have played in and won the Super Bowl in the past. They should be mentally in the game early on and that gives them an edge in this tricky market.
