Los Angeles Rams vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers Prediction: Hit The First Touchdown Scorer at Betfred

Two of the best quarterbacks in the NFC (not named Aaron Rodgers) will go at it Sunday afternoon in Tampa, as the Rams come to town fresh off their blowout of division rival Arizona. For the Buccaneers, two reliable receivers they had during last season's run in Antonio Brown and Chris Godwin, won't be available for this one.

Let's take a look at a few guys that will be key for both teams' successes early and often.

Los Angeles Rams vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers First Touchdown Scorer

First TD Scorer: Cooper Kupp (+500)

How can you not sprinkle a little bit on the NFL's triple crown WR, as Kupp led the league this season in receptions, yards, and touchdowns? He got off to a hot start last weekend vs. the Cardinals, leading all Rams receivers with 61 yards and a touchdown.

In what will be the biggest game of veteran quarterback Matthew Staffords' career thus far, he'll surely be targeting the sure-hands of Kupp early. Look for some shots deep to Kupp on the Rams very first drive.

First TD Scorer: Rob Gronkowski (+600)

Outside of Bill, when you think of Tom Brady's postseason successes; Gronk is a name that surely comes to mind. That was again on display in the Buc's runaway win last weekend vs. the Eagles, as Gronk reeled in 5 receptions for 31 yards and a touchdown, despite playing from ahead all day.

In this one, both teams likely expect a shootout and look for Gronk to be targeted early and often from Brady. If the Bucs can get into the Red Zone first, Gronk becomes WR1 almost right away.

First TD Scorer: Matthew Stafford (+2000)

Despite having his rushing over/under prop set at .5 yards last week, Stafford finished Monday night with 22 yards on 6 attempts. Oh, yea, and a touchdown.

In what was a quarterback sneak attempt, that he tried twice before succeeding, Stafford found pay dirt and I think there's a chance we see a repeat. At these long odds, I think there's some value in the wheels of Stafford getting some wear early in this one.
