There’s almost something poetic about the Super Bowl falling just a day before Valentine’s Day this year. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that cashing longshot Super Bowl touchdown props could help pay for you Valentine’s Day dinner.
Our experts will have boxes of chocolates and red roses ready for two players they predict will find the end zone, featuring Kendall Blanton as an anytime pick and Van Jefferson as the Rams’ first touchdown scorer.
And if you’re looking for more action on Super Bowl TD props, our Director of Predictive Analytics also reveals his projected chances for key Rams and Bengals players to score first and anytime touchdowns.
2022 Super Bowl TD Props
Kendall Blanton Anytime TD (+230)
Samantha Previte: With the news that Rams tight end Tyler Higbee is out, I really like Blanton’s odds to find the end zone.
The +230 odds gives this an implied probability of 30% (convert more odds using our calculator). That seems a bit high, though, as Blanton found the end zone against the Buccaneers in the Divisional Round and we know that quarterback Matthew Stafford does like his tight ends.
Bet to: +200
Van Jefferson First Rams TD (+1000)
Chris Raybon: It’s been radio silence from Van Jefferson in the postseason, with the year-two wideout catching 5-of-9 targets for 79 scoreless yards. But that’s why we’re getting great value on a player who ran a route on at least 86% of the Rams’ dropbacks in all three playoff games.
Not only that, but Jefferson tied Cooper Kupp for the team lead with four first touchdowns this season. In fact, two-thirds of Jefferson’s touchdowns this season have been the Rams’ first of the game.
Jefferson doesn’t score many touchdowns, but when he does, they’re usually early.
Bet to: +700
