Betting on first touchdown is always a difficult proposition, but this year’s Super Bowl is rife with touchdown threats well worth your money. If you want to play this support game, here are some options to consider.
Let’s start with the odds via WynnBET.
The most likely bet is Cooper Kupp at +450, which I wouldn’t blame anyone for putting the money in, but I would start with the Bengals phenom rookie Ja’Marr Chase at +700. The Bengals will have no choice but to come out and play their trademark fierce attack. They got off to a slow start against Kansas City, and Burrow and company will want to avoid falling behind early against the Rams.
Chase had an encounter last week against the Chiefs as part of their frenetic comeback, and scored 13 encounters in the regular season. He and Burrow have crazy chemistry on the touchlines with back throws, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see them try it out soon.
Odell Beckham Jr has become a scoring machine since joining the Rams. If you play his first game against the Rams, which favors putting him in their system, Beckham has scored in six out of 10 games against Los Angeles. In the NFC conference championship, Beckham caught nine of 11 goals at 113 yards, all of which are highs for him this year.
Look for Beckham to have a big game as the Bengals extras try to do what no one else can this year – shut down Cooper Kupp.
This is a long odds pick with some crazy methods. We know that Chase is the top threat in this receptive core. There is a chance he will receive Jalen Ramsey’s treatment in this matchup, although whether he will move in the squad remains a mystery. We know that Tee Higgins is another big physical threat that can play out outside. If the Rams’ defense obscures their coverage of those two picks, slot receiver Tyler Boyd could be a prominent part of the Bengals’ offensive plan.
Boyd was on a losing streak in four straight games between Week 15 and the first round of the playoffs. He’s been quiet for the last two innings, but against a ferocious defence, Burrow can find a way to get the ball out of his hands quickly. With a thwarted late game, Boyd is an interesting pick out of the box to get into the game early.
