Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes scored the first touchdown of Super Bowl LIV. That netted any lucky bettors quite the payout, as Mahomes' odds to score the first TD were listed at +1900 prior to kickoff, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

Mahomes found the end zone on a 1-yard rush, which gave the Chiefs a 7-3 lead toward the end of the first quarter.

Whether or not this is the first sign of a potentially big game for Mahomes remains to be seen, but he's notably available at -120 to win the Super Bowl LIV MVP award, after entering the game as a favorite at +110.

Mahomes' touchdown now has the Chiefs as -138 favorites on the moneyline, and they're favored by 3.5 points.
