Primetime games have been a bit of a bore more often than not in the early stages of this 2022 NFL season, but that definitely should not be the case in the Week 5 installment of Sunday Night Football. We have on our hands a rivalry showdown between the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles, who are battling for supremacy – along with the New York Giants – in the NFC East. Philadelphia has the edge right now as the only 5-0 team in the league, but Dallas (and New York, for that matter) is right behind at 4-1.

With kickoff set for 8:20 pm ET on NBC, it’s time to take a look at the best touchdown scorer bets to be made for Sunday Night Football.

Dallas Cowboys touchdown scorer best bet: CeeDee Lamb, WR (+220)

CeeDee Lamb has found the end zone in 2 of the last 3 games. In 4 career contests against Philadelphia he has scored 2 touchdowns. It doesn’t take a genius to do simple math and realize that getting Lamb this far into plus-money is a steal. And it’s not like Cooper Rush at quarterback has been any kind of detriment. Both of Lamb’s scores this season have come from Rush and the former Oklahoma star has been targeted 50 times through 5 weeks. He has not been targeted fewer than 8 times in any game. Although the Eagles’ defense is stout, 6 passing touchdowns allowed so far is a healthy enough amount. Don’t be surprised at all if Lamb puts 6 points on the board for the visitors on Sunday Night Football.

Philadelphia Eagles touchdown scorer best bet: Jalen Hurts, QB (+115)

Jalen Hurts has been outstanding in all facets of the game during his second full season as an NFL starter. Where he is most deadly is on the ground, as he has already recorded 5 rushing touchdowns just 5 games into the 2022 campaign. Moreover, Hurts has 68 rushing attempts as he continues to be a major focal point in the Eagles’ offensive plan. With touchdowns hard to come by against the Dallas defense this season, Hurts could turn to his legs in the red zone when presented with the opportunity. It could be on a called play or could be improvisation (or both!), but look for Hurts to score at least once on the ground this weekend.

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.
