Among the various scoring props you will find for Super Bowl 55 is the First Score of the Game a Touchdown

Will first score be a touchdown

Yes -220

No +150

Touchdown is always favored as the first score of any Super Bowl.  A field goal or safety pays $15 for every $10 bet.

Last year, Chiefs starting quarterback Patrick Mahomes scored the first touchdown of the game.  Quarterbacks rarely score the first touchdown.  As such, the payout was rather lucrative at 21-1 or $2100 for every $100 bet.  Mahomes returns for Super Bowl 55.

MGM executive director of public relations Scott Ghertner confirmed that Mahomes scoring the first touchdown was a “low six-figure decision” for the sportsbook.

More first score odds include:
