According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Frank Gore is a 13/2 favorite to score the first touchdown in this year's Super Bowl. Michael Crabtree and Ray Rice have the next best odds at 15/2, respectively, while Anquan Boldin and Colin Kaepernick are both 8/1, respectively. 49ers tight end Vernon Davis is 9/1.

Torrey Smith has 10/1 odds to be the first player to score a touchdown in the 2013 Super Bowl, while Dennis Pitta and Randy Moss are both 12/1, respectively. Delanie Walker is 18/1, Bernard Pierce is 20/1, and Ed Dickson and Jacoby Jones are 25/1, respectively. Quarterback Joe Flacco, meanwhile, is 30/1.

Some of the long shots for this prop odd include Anthony Dixon, Ed Reed, Ted Ginn Jr. and Vonta Leach, who are all 33/1, respectively, while Ray Lewis is 50/1. The rest of the "Field" has 17/2 odds while "No touchdown scored in the game" has long shot odds of 75/1. Even for as good as both teams' defenses can be, it's highly unlikely that David Akers and Justin Tucker are going to get into a field goal slugfest.

The season the scoring got off to a slow start, as the Giants were awarded a safety when Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was called for Intentional Grounding in the end zone. Victor Cruz then scored a 2-yard touchdown on a pass from Eli Manning with 3:24 left in the first quarter, as the Giants eventually went on to win 21-17.

In the 2010 Super Bowl, Packers' receiver Jordy Nelson scored on a 29-yard touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers and in 2009, Pierre Garcon scored on a 19-yard touchdown reception from Peyton Manning. You'd have to go back to 2008 when a non-receiver scored the first touchdown, as Gary Russell notched a 1-yard TD run for the Steelers in their 27-23 victory over the Cardinals.
