We have one more game in Week 13 of the 2023 NFL season, and it’s a Monday Night Football battle in Jacksonville between the Cincinnati Bengals and Jacksonville Jaguars. It’s a big one for both teams, too. Cincinnati needs a win to stay within realistic wild-card contention in the AFC, while Jacksonville has both AFC South title and #1 seed aspirations.

The Pickswise team has been absolutely on fire with their touchdown scorer prop picks throughout this 2023 NFL campaign, so let’s keep the momentum going! Here are my best TD scorer bets for MNF, and also be sure to check out our full Bengals vs Jaguars predictions.

Ja’Marr Chase, WR, CIN (+230 at DraftKings)

It is true that these are tough times for the Bengals, but no matter the circumstances I am not passing up an opportunity to get Chase at +230 to find the endzone. And in truth, the circumstances really aren’t that bad for Chase in particular. Despite playing with either an injured Burrow or a backup quarterback, the LSU product has scored in 3 of the last 5 games. He also had 81 yards last week against Pittsburgh with Browning throwing him the ball. Don’t forget that Chase delivered a 3-touchdown performance at Arizona’s expense in early October. This is still Ja’Marr Chase we are talking about. As for Jacksonville’s pass defense, it ranks at 28th in the NFL in that department. Look for Chase to capitalize.

Calvin Ridley, WR, JAX (+155 at FanDuel) 

Ridley has been stellar in his first season with the Jaguars, heading into Monday night with 47 receptions for 663 yards and 5 touchdowns. Three of his scores have come in the last 2 games – including 2 against the Titans in Week 11. His 103-yard effort at Tennessee’s expense marked the 3rd time Ridley has surpassed the 100-yard mark this year and he has produced at least 83 yards on 2 other occasions in the last 4 weeks. In other words, he is on a roll right now. The former Alabama standout has a favorable matchup with the Bengals on his hands, too. Cincinnati’s defense is #26 in the NFL against the pass and is giving up a league-worst 8.1 yards per attempt. Ridley has good value to deliver his 6th TD of the 2023 campaign.
