Who cares about field goals? The NFL is decided by touchdowns. So, if you really want to get into the player prop game this football season, anytime touchdown scorer bets are a great way to start. Here are our top three anytime TD picks for Week 13 of the season, along with results so far:
NFL Anytime Touchdown Scorer Bets: Week 13
After a big winning week, let's try to carry the luck into Week 13. All NFL touchdown scorer odds below are courtesy of the latest betting lines as of Friday:
Dalton Schultz Anytime TD (+175)
Dalton Schultz and the Texans match up against a Broncos defense with several weaknesses. They aren't very good against running backs and can't stop tight ends either. The Broncos have allowed the most yards in the league to opposing TEs (783) and six touchdowns in 11 games, too.
While Schultz has been quiet the last few weeks, he's still getting his end zone targets. Schultz has 11 targets in the red zone so far this season, and he's converted four of those for scores. He's getting basically one look at the end zone every game, and against the Broncos he's more likely than ever to catch it.
Rachaad White Anytime TD (+105)
Bucs RB Rachaad White has just five touchdowns on the year, but four of those have come in the last four weeks. The Tampa rusher should stay hot this weekend, as he draws the easiest matchup in the NFL for running backs: the Panthers.
Carolina is far-and-away the worst scoring defense against opposing running backs. They've allowed 19 touchdowns in just 11 games this season to RBS, easily the most in the NFL.
Jeff Wilson Jr. Anytime TD (+125)
Both Raheem Mostert and De'Von Achane have been limited participants in practice so far this week, opening the door for Jeff Wilson Jr. to find the end zone and find us some value.
Wilson's only been back in the fold for four games with the Dolphins, but his usage is on the rise. Last week against the Jets he had 11 rushing attempts and three targets in the passing game. It didn't result in a touchdown then, but that's more than enough opportunity to score — especially when the other two Miami running backs could be hurt.
How To Understand NFL Anytime Touchdown Scorer Odds
The time has come that you finally want to bet on some NFL props instead of sides and totals and you’ve decided on the NFL Anytime Touchdown Scorer props. This is a fun choice because props are like games within the game that may or may not have a direct impact on the outcome of the game.
When you go to your online sportsbook to look at NFL Anytime Touchdown Scorer odds for our recommended bets, for instance, the odds available to bet on might be presented like this:
Cooper Kupp – Rams +120
Tee Higgins – Bengals +150
Similar to a moneyline bet where favorites would be marked with the minus sign (-) and underdogs with the plus sign (+), the favorite to score a touchdown is a player with the lowest odds, which in this case is Cooper Kupp. Based on Kupp’s implied odds from sportsbooks, he has a 45.45 percent chance to score a touchdown.
Let’s say you think Tee Higgins will score a touchdown in this game. In order to make $100 in profit, you would need to bet $66.67. If you make that bet and Higgins scores, your $66.67 original bet is returned and you win $100 in profit.
On the flip side, part of the allure of NFL Anytime Touchdown Scorer wagers is the big paydays you could receive for being right and picking a player who doesn’t score as often as Kupp or Higgins. In this case, you decide to bet on the Bengals’ Joe Burrow at +500.
If you bet $100 on Burrow and he finds the end zone in the game, you would get $600 returned to you. Your original $100 bet is refunded and the sportsbook will give you $500 in profit for your winning bet.If you’re unsure about potential payouts for certain betting odds, try out Odds Shark’s odds calculator to do the math for you and show you how much you’d win based on the odds and amount wagered.
