There is a lot of hype surrounding the offenses competing on Super Bowl Sunday in Glendale, Ariz., with the Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs full of talent. Travis Kelce is among the elite players in this game, and we found a touchdown prop that sends his odds through the roof compared to a vanilla “Anytime Touchdown” Super Bowl bet.
Travis Kelce First Quarter TD Scorer +550
Travis Kelce is a juggernaut and the kind of guy you back when wagering NFL player props. He leads the Super Bowl odds board at -155 to score a touchdown anytime, but I’m not interested in Kelce as a standalone bet at those odds. As part of a parlay, sure, but we can find a better value on Kelce.
The odds for him to score a touchdown in the first quarter are much juicier at +550.
The Chiefs will be desperate to get the Patrick Mahomes to Kelce train rolling early during the Super Bowl. What better way to build momentum than score an early touchdown?
Kelce is Mahomes’ go-to guy in the end zone, and it’s paid dividends this season as Kelce racked up a ton of touchdowns.

Casual bettors may not be aware that Kelce does more scoring in the first quarter of games, with four touchdowns during the regular season. He scored three or fewer in each of the three other quarters.
The Eagles may have the most intimidating defense in the NFL, but they aren’t always quick to get going right out of the gate. Philly ranks 18th in the league with an average of 4.4 points allowed in the 1st quarter of games.
The odds suggest this is a longshot bet. But this is a logical Super Bowl prediction with very profitable odds.
