Over/Under on Jersey Number of First Touchdown Scorer

Having a special kinship with the jersey number of the player to score the first Super Bowl TD prop, we love betting on this option. Not as prevalent as it once was, maybe there are too many numbers that 'Cappers can crunch, we had to dig around before finding it at the Pinnacle sportsbook with a 32.5 (-108) Over/Under line and price. Although our affection stems back to cashing with it in the past - we also enjoy sifting through our stats treasure chest to help determine the final selection.

More of a "in the here and now prop" bettor's need to dig deeper than the results of previous NFL title fights to zero in on the best choice here. While the past matchups show us that 49 different players, wearing numbers ranging from 7 to 97, have helped bettors cash bets, the lads lining up in the Eagles vs Patriots duel deserve the most research time. Knowing that seven positions have made this prop a winner, lead by wide receivers with 20 first TD scores, just isn't enough information.
