San Francisco 49ers vs Los Angeles Rams First Touchdown Scorer

First TD Scorer: Cam Akers (+650)

Though it's hard to remember given the workload he's received through the first two postseason games, don't forget that Akers missed the entire regular season with a torn achilles. Carrying the ball 41 times so far in two games, Akers has yet to find pay dirt despite getting the majority of snaps directed his way.

In this one, I look for him to be rewarded with Red Zone changes, and in a game I expect the Rams to go up early, let's get it done early.

First TD Scorer: George Kittle (+900)

Don't let Kittle's lack of material action yet this postseason fool you, he's a threat on nearly every play. With just 5 receptions through two games, Kittle is averaging 16.2 yards per catch and is a Red Zone nightmare for defenders.

If the 49ers can put together a good drive early, expect Kittle to be the beneficiary.

First TD Scorer: Los Angeles Rams (D/ST) (+2000)

While this is a long shot for good reason, hear me out on what could be a massive payday for this with the guts to play it. In his first two postseason games this month, 49ers QB Jimmy G has two interceptions and has been sacked four times.

With one defensive touchdown already this season postseason and 19 interceptions to close out the regular season, don't be surprised if this Rams defense full of playmakers scores one early in this one.
