Big events such as next Sunday’s Super Bowl between the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs in Las Vegas — besides bringing a focus on Ohio sports betting sites — always shine a light on gridiron hometown heroes from different states.
Utilizing ProFootballReference.com, BetOhio.com looked at the states that have the most touchdowns in the history of the Super Bowl. There have been 314 touchdowns scored in the Big Game. Here are the leading states:
States With Most Super Bowl Touchdowns*
The Buckeye State begins the second half of the top 10 at No. 6 with 18 touchdowns (5.7%). Florida leads all states with 37 TDs (11.8%), with Texas placing second with 35 (11.1%) and California third with 24 (7.6%).
Past Ohio standouts include New England wide receiver and Youngstown native David Givens, who had TD receptions in back-to-back Super Bowl wins (XXXVIII, XXXIX). Miami Dolphins and Hall-of-Fame running back Larry Csonka (Stow) ran for two touchdowns and was named MVP of Miami's 24-7 victory over the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl VIII.
In this year’s game, Ohio betting apps list San Francisco as a 2-point favorite with an over/under of 47.5 total points.
Familiar Foes Face Off Again
Two familiar Ohio names return to football’s showcase once again. Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, a Westlake native, returns to play in his third Super Bowl. He had a TD catch in Super Bowl LIV and last year, in a thrilling 38-35 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles, had six receptions for 81 yards (13.5 avg.) and a second quarter 18-yard TD catch from quarterback Patrick Mahomes to tie the game at 7-7.
At BetMGM Sportsbook Ohio, Kelce is listed for anytime TD scorer at -110 and first TD at +600.
Medina native and San Francisco 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk will be playing in his second Super Bowl, having had three catches for 39 yards and one TD in a 31-20 loss to Kelce’s Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV. Juszczyk has far higher odds entering Sunday’s showdown with anytime TD scorer (+1000) and first TD scorer (+5000).
