View Updated Super Bowl XLVIII Odds

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch is a 5/1 favorite to be the player to score the first touchdown on Sunday. Denver running back Knowshon Moreno has the next-best odds at 17/2 while his teammates Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker and Eric Decker are all 9/1, respectively.

Continuing with the odds, Seattle wideout Percy Harvin, who will return to action following a concussion suffered against New Orleans in the Divisional round of the playoffs, is 10/1 to score the first touchdown in Super Bowl XLVIII. His teammate Golden Tate is 12/1, meanwhile, as is Broncos tight end Julius Thomas.

Russell Wilson and Doug Baldwin both have 14/1 odds to score the first touchdown on Sunday, which provides some value for bettors. Wilson only scored one rushing touchdown this season but he receives anywhere from three to 13 carries a game on average. With the weather conditions up in the air, both teams might be doing a lot of running on Sunday, which includes Seattle using Wilson on boot and read option plays.

Denver rookie Montee Ball is a 16/1 long shot to score the first touchdown on Sunday while Seattle tight end Zach Miller is 20/1. Jacob Tamme of the Broncos is 22/1 after scoring a touchdown last week versus New England, while Seattle's backup running back Robert Turbin is a 33/1 long shot.

Of course, the biggest long shot to score the first touchdown of the players listed is Peyton Manning at 40/1. "The Field" is also 6/1, which includes every player not listed below, and you can also wager on there not being a touchdown scored, which will give you whopping 66/1 odds. Even though Seattle owns the No. 1 defense in the league, the game is unlikely to be a field goal fest seeing as how the over/under total is currently sitting at 47 points.
