One of the most popular NFL props has to be the first score method, whichsportsbooks have released as follows: a touchdown is listed at -163, a fieldgoal is listed at +125 while any other method is listed at a whopping +3300.
Now, it’s worth taking a look at the leadup to the Super Bowl where against New Orleans, Steven Hauschka provided twofield goals in the first quarter to give the Seahawks a leg up. As well, hescored a second quarter field goal against San Francisco to cut the 49ers leadto seven points (10-3) going into halftime. Similarly, Matt Prater gave theBroncos the 3-0 lead over the Patriots in the first quarter before Jacob Tammecaught Peyton’s 1 yard pass to score a touchdown in the second quarter. It’sworth noting as well that the Patriots first score of the game came courtesy ofStephen Grotkowski’s foot. Only the Chargers game saw the Patriots score viatouchdown to get proceedings underway.
If we were to take a liberty, find a wordto describe the postseason games of our two finalists it would be caution; thefootnote being to get on the scoreboard as quickly as possible without takinghuge risks. If that principle prevails in the final showdown one would thinkthe smart NFL prop pick thereforewould be the field goal at +125 at Bet365.
What’s more, depending on which team youare backing to the victory (which is down to personal preference and loyalty),you might consider adding a prop bet on the team to score the field goal first,pairing it for instance, with Seahawks to score a field goal first that islisted at +365 or Broncos to score a field goal first that is listed at +350.
Of course, if you are leaning towards thetouchdown, Seahawks to score the touchdown is listed at +200 while Broncos toopen scoring with a touchdown is listed at +180.
If a touchdown is your thing you mightconsider a gander at picking the correct touchdown scorers for the game. Thetop NFL betting market favourite isMarshawn Lynch at -175 anytime. He’s also tipped at +500 to score both thefirst and last touchdown. Demaryius Thomas comes in as the second favourite at+100 to score a touchdown anytime followed by Knowshon Moreno and Eric Deckerat +110 and +130 anytime. On the Bronco’s last outing, Peyton Manningconspicuously seemed to prefer Knowshon Moreno so if you are backing the Broncosto score first perhaps taking Moreno both to score anytime and first at +850would be a good option. Then again, Decker had a memorable 4 TD night duringthe regular season so he might be the darkhorse prop pick at +1000 NFL oddsto score the Bronco’s first TD of the game.
