Do you want to be the absolute star of your Super Bowl party? We’ll there is no better shot than hitting your first touchdown bet. People across the country will have a variety of different bets that will be settled in the very beginning, between the coin toss and the national anthem, but nothing with close to as nice odds as first touchdown. Let's look at who had that success for the Bengals so far. 

  • CJ Uzomah vs Las Vegas
  • Joe Mixon vs Tennessee 
  • Samaje Perine vs Kansas City 

As you can see, there isn't quite a clear trend here. One redzone reception for the tight end, one goal-line rush from the running back, and a 40-yard broken play reception from the backup running back. That being said, I'm supporting two guys have a very specific skillset, running crisp routes over the middle. 

CJ Uzomah First TD +2400 (Bet $100 to win $2400)

Let's start with CJ Uzomah, who is questionable to play in this game. Despite that tag still being applied, Uzomah recently went on stage, took his knee brace off, and threw it in the air before remarking “I’m not missing the biggest game of my life." All that is proof enough to run it back with the Tight End, who scored the first Bengals touchdown against Las Vegas.

Uzomah was trending upwards before getting injured, going 6-64-1 vs Vegas and 7-81-0 vs Tennessee, I'm expecting a larger workload and continued success over the middle. The Rams are known for letting those safeties sit back, and that opens up more room over the middle for guys like Uzomah to operate.

Tyler Boyds First TD +1600 (Bet $100 to win $1600)

Speaking of those two deep safeties, I’m taking someone else who thrives over the middle, Tyler Boyd. While Boyd has taken a backseat this season to Chase and Higgins, he is still the number three in this offense and I think we are getting some very nice odds here. Boyd finished the season with three touchdowns in five games and, seeing at least five targets in all of those games. This is a numbers play for me, Boyd is gonna be on the field and running routes in the Rams weak spot, I'm expecting he has a decent shot to cash here.
