New England Patriots touchdown scorer best bet: Rhamondre Stevenson, RB (-130)

Monday Night Football is expected to be a very low-scoring game, as it feels like every primetime game is this year, but if one guy is going to find the end zone, it’s Rhamondre Stevenson. The Patriots running back has excelled this year and took over as the primary running back recently, with Damien Harris sidelined due to an injury. However, Harris is expected to return for Monday Night Football which is far sooner than many anticipated. Still, Stevenson has proven himself as a hard runner that is excellent at taking contact, as he ran for 76 yards and 2 touchdowns last week against the Browns and 161 yards in Week 5 against the Lions.

Stevenson will face a Bears defense that ranks 31st in rushing yards allowed and 29th in rushing touchdowns allowed. New England might not be able to beat the Chicago secondary, so put your bet on Stevenson to score through the Swiss cheese that is the Chicago defensive line.

Chicago Bears touchdown scorer best bet: Darnell Mooney, WR (+360)

Betting on who will score for the Bears feels like throwing a dart while blindfolded. The Chicago offense has scored less than 20 points in 4 of their 6 games. They have only 4 rushing touchdowns and 4 receiving touchdowns on the season, and they will face a stout Patriots defense that has been good against the run and in the secondary. With that in mind, I’ll play it safe and take the Bears’ leading receiver to score at +360 odds. Through the first six weeks, Mooney has 17 receptions for 241 yards, which both lead the team.

He has yet to find the end zone this season, which is yet another reason why the leading receiver for the team has such high odds. Mooney had 12 targets and 7 receptions in Week 6 and should continue to have the most targets of any Chicago receiver, so back him to find the end zone in Monday Night Football.

Anytime Touchdown Scorer FAQs

What does “anytime touchdown scorer” mean?

Anytime touchdown scorer is a popular player prop bet that NFL bettors can wager on throughout the season. But what is it, and how do you win?

As the name suggests, placing a wager on the anytime touchdown scorer market is when you tip a particular player to score a touchdown during a game. This can be a rushing or receiving touchdown for an offensive player, or you can wager on a team’s defense/special teams to score a touchdown by interception return and fumble return or kickoff and punt returns.

If your player or defense scores a touchdown, you win! The odds will differ from player-to-player depending on the sportsbooks’ calculated probability of that player scoring.

Does anytime touchdown scorer include passing touchdowns?

Not for a quarterback, no. A player must get into the endzone, himself, in order to qualify as an anytime touchdown scorer. If a quarterback throws a touchdown pass, only the player who caught it counts as the scorer. If Joe Burrow throws a touchdown pass to Ja’Marr Chase, wagers placed on Evans as an anytime touchdown scorer will cash. However, those placed on Rodgers as an anytime touchdown scorer will not (unless he also runs for a TD). See below for more on what the anytime touchdown scorer market means for quarterbacks.

What does anytime touchdown scorer mean for a QB?

For a wager on a QB to be an anytime touchdown scorer to cash, he must follow the same rules as a running back, tight end, or receiver. He must get into the end zone himself, either as a runner or a pass-catcher.

In the age of the mobile quarterback, QBs such as Patrick Mahomes, Lamar Jackson, Josh Allen and Kyler Murray are often seen rushing in for a touchdown on any given Sunday. And don’t forget the occasional Philly Special, either. QBs can sometimes catch passes for TDs, too.
