Trey Palmer’s telltale sign for scoring a touchdown

As a rookie sixth-round pick, Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Trey Palmer isn’t exactly someone who’s been on the radar of bettors. Especially on a team that also has Mike Evans and Chris Godwin splitting targets from Baker Mayfield.

However, that’s about to change, and it’s all thanks to a message Palmer himself has been posting to X (formerly Twitter) since he was in college. That message, always some variation of Palmer being “pissed off,” has become a tell for when Palmer is likely to score a touchdown. He’s posted it on six different occasions since 2022, all on game days, and he’s scored a touchdown in five of those games.

After his latest angry score, in Monday’s playoff win over the Philadelphia Eagles, bettors have taken notice. They’ll surely be looking to hammer his anytime touchdown odds the next time he tweets about being pissed off.

Some athletes perform better when they’re angry, and Palmer appears to be a great example of that. Though I’m sure there’s a deeper explanation for his high success rate. Palmer knows when a game plan plays to his favor, and he likely wakes up with a little more juice for those games.

The only time this season Palmer has scored without a warning tweet was in the team’s season opener. Otherwise, he’s 3-for-4 on pissed-off touchdowns, with the only miss being Tampa’s season finale against the Carolina Panthers on Jan. 7.

He did have six targets that game, though, so maybe the non-touchdown had more to do with Mayfield.

This is a trend that started toward the end of Palmer’s 2022 season with Nebraska, when he scored touchdowns after tweeting before his final two college games. Now that the cat’s out the bag, you have to wonder how much longer it’ll continue.
