New York Jets touchdown scorer best bet: Garrett Wilson (+210)

Odds available at FanDuel Sportsbook at time of publishing. 

Garrett Wilson has pretty clearly established himself as one of the best wide receivers in the 2022 draft class, if not the best. Even going off a small sample size, it’s obvious that the Jets hit a home run with him and he’s likely going to be a No. 1 wideout for years to come. The problem has been his production hasn’t been the same with Zach Wilson at quarterback compared to when Mike White was under center.

Wilson and White had a clear connection and that led to a trio of excellent games against the Bears, Vikings and Bills. However, Wilson caught some big pass plays against Detroit last week and he should thrive against an awful Jaguars pass defense on Thursday. Jacksonville is last in the NFL in pass defense DVOA as the Jaguars continue to allow explosive plays and touchdowns to opposing receivers at an alarming clip. Even with Zach Wilson getting the start at quarterback, I expect Wilson to feast on a poor secondary and continue his strong rookie season with a touchdown under the lights.

Jacksonville Jaguars touchdown scorer best bet: Zay Jones (+310)

Odds available at FanDuel Sportsbook at time of publishing. 

This Jets defense is a force and very difficult to break down with explosive plays in the passing game. However, Trevor Lawrence has been absolutely rolling of late, posting 17 touchdowns over the last 6 games, to just 1 interception. It’s clear that Jacksonville is more comfortable with Lawrence throwing the ball and Zay Jones has become Lawrence’s favorite target over the last few weeks. Jones racked up a whopping 3 touchdowns last Sunday, to go along with 8 targets and 6 receptions for 109 yards. Jones’ usage rate has gone way up in recent weeks thanks to the continued excellent play of Lawrence at quarterback. With Sauce Gardner expected to shadow Christian Kirk for most of the night, look for Jones to keep his touchdown streak alive.

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 Josh Allen, Patrick Mahomes, Lamar Jackson 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.
