When it comes to the Super Bowl, you can bet on just about anything. In addition to all of the normal football bets like the spread, the total, and player props, the Super Bowl goes wild. You’ve got enthusiasts laying money on the length of the national anthem and which color Gatorade gets dumped on the winning coach.
One thing that’s always fun to bet on is touchdowns. In every NFL game just about every positional skill player on both teams is given odds on how likely they are to find the end zone, and in the Super Bowl, that’s really what we want to see, right? We want touchdowns. So here are our favorite touchdown scorer odds for Super Bowl LVII.
Miles Sanders scores in bunches. From the end of November to the beginning of December, he had a three-game stretch where he found the end zone on the ground five times. Since then though, he hadn’t scored until the NFC Championship where he punched it in twice. One might say he’s getting hot again. Sanders to score is going at -105 in some places, so Caesars is giving you a real gift with these odds.
Travis Kelce is going to score a touchdown. Not only has he scored three touchdowns over his last two games, but over his career he’s been a postseason touchdown machine. Kelce has played in 17 postseason games and has scored 15 postseason touchdowns. He has the shortest odds to score for a reason, but getting it at -113 is great value when Kelce to score is going for as much as -135 in other places.
Boston Scott hasn’t gotten more than nine carries in any game this season, but the carries he gets are valuable. He’s scored a touchdown in the last four games where he’s been on the field. The Eagles like to use him around the endzone, and for an offense that ranks 3rd in points scored on the season, they’re around the endzone quite a bit. This one comes with obvious risk due to his low amount of touches but it’s not only about that. +500 are great odds to get for someone who’s scored in four games in a row.
Jerick McKinnon +215 (Caesars)
There was a point this season where Jerick McKinnon scored nine touchdowns in the span of six games. He’s second on the team in total touchdowns, only behind Kelce, and Patrick Mahomes has shown real trust in McKinnon. He gets him the ball in crucial situations and in the red zone in scoring situations. McKinnon has also had a knack for taking routine screens or underneath passes to the house. He’s been one of Mahomes’ favorite targets in the second half of the season.
Jalen Hurts +112 (Caesars)
Getting plus odds on Jalen Hurts to score a touchdown is a dream. A Hurts touchdown is as much as -115 on some other books and those are fairly common odds around the industry. Hurts has only had six games this entire season, including the playoffs, where he didn’t run one in himself (and 11 games where he did record a rushing touchdown). He’s had another two weeks to give his shoulder any more healing that it needed. If the Eagles ever find themselves by the goal line on Sunday, you know Hurts is calling his own number.

So Amon-Ra St. Brown isn’t always open? Of course, when we advise to bet on him he fails to deliver. Same with Tyreek Hill, although it’s because he didn’t surpass his catches total rather than yards. At least betting against the Jets did w...
