The Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers have officially kicked off Super Bowl LV, and we have our first TD scored in the books.

On second down and five, Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady found his reliable tight end Rob Gronkowski cutting across the formation for the first touchdown of Super Bowl 55. Earlier in the drive, Tampa Bay featured backup tight end Cameron Brate on a couple of passing plays. Gronkowski’s odds to score the first touchdown of the game was +1100.

Ahead of kickoff, DraftKings Sportsbook had Travis Kelce with the lowest odds to score the first touchdown in Super Bowl 55. His odds sat at +650. Mike Evans received 21% of the handle and 19% of bets for first TD scorer, leading in both of these categories.
