Week 3 in the 2023 NFL season comes to a close with a barnburner on Monday Night Football between the LA Rams and Cincinnati Bengals in a Super Bowl 56 rematch. The Rams were victorious on that occasion but a lot has changed in LA since then, although Sean McVay will like his team’s chances as the Bengals have started the season 0-2 and are in desperate need of a win. Can Joe Burrow lead Cincinnati to their first victory of their season?

Head over to our Rams vs Bengals predictions to find out what our experts like, but for now, let’s get into my favorite Rams vs Bengals anytime touchdown scorer best bets at HUGE +250 and +490 odds.

Tyler Higbee, TE, Los Angeles Rams (+250)

Odds available at FanDuel Sportsbook at time of publishing.

As explained in my Rams vs Bengals Same Game Parlay, I really like Tyler Higbee’s chances of scoring in this one and think he has solid value at +250 odds. With rookie WR Puka Nacua breaking out on the Rams’ offense, I believe Zac Taylor will be doing all he can to limit the wideout’s impact and that gives other players on LA the chance to have a big game. Given the Bengals have already allowed 2 touchdowns to tight ends this season, I think Higbee can find the end zone. Higbee has had 3 receptions in each of his first 2 games of the season and saw 7 targets from Matthew Stafford last week, who clearly looks to him as a security blanket. At tidy +250 odds, I’m rolling with Higbee to put points on the board.

Joe Burrow, QB, Cincinnati Bengals (+490)

Odds available at FanDuel Sportsbook at time of publishing.

There’s a chance this pick will be void if Burrow doesn’t suit up because of his calf injury, but if he is indeed active as expected, I wouldn’t be shocked to see him break into the end zone. He has had just 1 carry in each game so far, but did have 5 touchdowns in the 2022 regular season along with another in the postseason against the Ravens. Burrow is one of the toughest quarterbacks in the league and has consistently shown his grit and determination even when he’s hurting. Plus, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him use this calf injury to his advantage, expecting the Rams defense to predict him to be immobile in the game. If the Bengals have the ball within 7 yards of the end zone, there’s every chance Burrow will look to run it in himself. And at +490 odds, I’m willing to take a shot on that happening.
