Posted by Ryan Knuppel on Tuesday,February 2, 2016 10:06, EST in

One of the best prop bets when wagering on the Super Bowl is always the “First to Score odds”. It’s fun to predict who is going to be the first team and first person in the game to get into the end zone. You need to be careful when making this bet that you are taking the “First Touchdown” or the “First Score”. It makes a huge difference, because if taking the first to score, a field goal would ruin your plans. Let’s take a look at MyBookie’s online sportsbook odds to score the first touchdown.

Super Bowl 50 Odds to Score First

The obvious choice in this game would of course be the best offensive athlete on the field. That’s Cam Newton. The quarterback for the Carolina Panthers is the favorite to score the first touchdown, at +600. Carolina seems to be the choice of many as they have the first three chances; with Cam Newton, followed by tight end Greg Olsen and running Jonathan Stewart. Carolina is -140 to score first in this game.

Our Pick & Prediction for This Super Bowl 50 Prop Bet

Let’s shift gears just a bit and talk players. The pick to click for us in this game is Ted Ginn Jr of the Carolina Panthers. Ginn has had a tremendous season, ranking in the Top 10 in touchdowns scored on the season. The former Ohio State receiver is the fastest guy on the field, and Cam Newton has looked for him on several occasions this season.

Other guys that would be worth taking a look at would be Jordan Norwood of the Denver Broncos, because of his ability to return kicks. Much like Ted Ginn Jr, those guys that get a chance with special teams are great choices. You can grab Jordan Norwood at +2500, whereas Ted Ginn came in with the trio from Denver at +1000.

Peyton Manning Could be First to Score a Touchdown

Finally, we cannot finish this discussion on the first player to score a touchdown in Super Bowl 50 without talking about the legend on the field. Peyton Manning will be 40 years old this season. Many are saying this is the final game Peyton Manning will play. He is one of the biggest underdogs at scoring the first touchdown, but why not? The Panthers defenders get caught up in guarding their opponent, and Manning goes untouched into the end zone? It could happen. Take a look at Peyton Manning to score the first touchdown at +5000. Denver is listed at +110 to score first in Super Bowl 50.

After digesting it all, our pick and prediction for team to score first is Carolina -140. No matter who you decide to bet on, make sure you enjoy the game!
