Super Bowl 57 is on for Sunday at 6:30 p.m. ET as the Kansas City Chiefs will battle the Philadelphia Eagles at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.

Among the numerous prop bets you can make for the championship showdown on DraftKings Sportsbook is the first touchdown scorer of the game. Both teams are loaded with weapons that could potentially set the tone of the evening by being the first ones to crack the end zone. Below, we’ll go over how the public is wagering on this prop.

2023 Super Bowl TD scorer betting splits

  1. Travis Kelce: +700 — 25.4% handle, 21.6% bets
  2. A.J. Brown: +900 — 8.8% handle, 8.4% bets
  3. Miles Sanders: +700 — 8.6% handle, 8.9% bets
  4. Jalen Hurts: +700 — 8.2% handle, 8.0% bets
  5. DeVonta Smith: +1300 — 7.1% handle, 6.3% bets
  6. Dallas Goedert: +1200 — 7.0% handle, 7.1% bets
  7. Isiah Pacheco: +800 — 5.6% handle, 5.2% bets
  8. Patrick Mahomes: +2200 — 4.5% handle, 4.3% bets
  9. Marquez Valdes-Scantling: +1800 — 3.0% handle, 3.3% bets
  10. Jerick McKinnon: +1100 — 2.9% handle, 3.2% bets

A good chunk of the public thinks that Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce will get the touchdown party started in the desert with a quarter of the money and 21.6% of the total bets being pushed in his direction. The reasoning behind this is solid considering that he has caught a ridiculous 21 receptions for 176 yards and three touchdowns in just two games of the postseason.

Best Bet: Jalen Hurts (+700)

Hurts is one of the favorites at +700 and we’ll play it safe and predict that he’ll be the first touchdown scorer in this matchup. He’s been effective as a runner with 13 rushing touchdowns this year and got one on the ground in both playoff games. It wouldn’t be a shock to see him hit the edge for a touchdown and put the Eagles on the board.
