How the public is betting first TD scorer for Super Bowl 56

We take a look at the betting splits for who will score the first touchdown in Super Bowl LVI.

UPDATE: Odell Beckham Jr. scored the first touchdown with a 17-yard reception from Matthew Stafford in the first quarter. Watch the score here.

If you can predict who will score the first touchdown of Sunday’s Super Bowl LVI between the Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals, it would result in a large payout no matter who you would correctly choose.

Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp is the betting favorite on DraftKings Sportsbook with +500 odds to reach the end zone first, followed by running backs Cam Akers and Joe Mixon. There are more than 30 wagering options for bettors to choose from.

Kupp is getting the most wagers on this betting prop with 22.5% of bets and 24.8% of the handle, and fellow Rams wideout Odell Beckham Jr. is the only other player getting more than 10% of the bets and handle.

Below is a full look at where some of the bets and money are going according to DraftKings Sportsbook bettors.
