Taking a look at the Los Angeles Rams vs Cincinnati Bengals matchup in Super Bowl LVI and trying to decide on some first touchdown scorer plays.

Super Bowl 2022: Los Angeles Rams vs Cincinnati Bengals First TD Scorer Picks

Super Bowl Sunday is coming up, and we need as many bets as possible to sweat out. This is one of my favorite types of bets, the first touchdown bet. I am not going to give you guys Cooper Kupp because my dog could pick that I am going to give you guys three big-time plays to make us rich on Super Bowl Sunday night.

I am fired up for this game on Sunday, as I am sure all of you are as well. This is one of the most exciting bets in all of sports. Anything can happen at any point on a first touchdown bet, so let’s get into my first selection to score the first touchdown.

Odell Beckham Jr +900 (Bet $100 to win $900)

I am going with Odell Beckham Jr to get the first touchdown at +900. This dude has been a beast since he got to the Rams scoring touchdowns in over fifty percent of his games. I think so much attention will go to Cooper Kupp in this game that this will open up Odell Beckham, especially in the red zone.

Tight end Tyler Higbee who has also been a huge red-zone target for Stafford, may not go in this game on Sunday, so Beckham moves right up the list in this game. Look for OBJ to get into the end zone first here on Sunday!

Van Jefferson +1800 (Bet $100 to win $1800)

The second player I think that could get into the end zone first is going to be Van Jefferson at +1800. I love the style that Van plays with, and he again is a big red zone target for Matthew Stafford. I am banking on so much attention being on Kupp that it will release a guy like Van Jefferson.

If you have watched the last few playoff games, Van is getting a ton of one on one matchups across the board that the Rams have actually tried to take advantage of, especially in the red zone. I am banking on these types of looks again against the Bengals, and Stafford will trust him to go up and make a big-time play.

Joe Mixon +750 (Bet $100 to win $750)

The final play I am going with to score the first touchdown will be Joe Mixon at +750. I know this one is not as fun, but if the Bengals do score in this game first, I believe their best option is Joe Mixon. Mixon is a threat in both these run and passing games, so I think we are getting good value for the Bengal's most likely scoring option. If you ride all three of these, one of them will make us very rich! I can not wait for this game and the first TD bets.
