Monday Night Football in Week 4 will be especially fun for fans on the west coast, but it should be a good one in general. It’s a division rivalry game (in one of the best divisions in football, no less) and the ManningCast is back. What more could you want?!?! The San Francisco 49ers are hoping to tie the Los Angeles Rams atop the NFC West, while the defending Super Bowl champions are trying to extend their lead in the division.

With kickoff set for 8:15 pm ET on ESPN, it’s time to take a look at the best touchdown scorer bets to be made for this showdown.

Los Angeles Rams touchdown scorer best bet: Allen Robinson II, WR (+270)

Robinson is pass-catching option #3 in Los Angeles behind Cooper Kupp and Tyler Higbee, which is why you can get him all the way up at +270. It is a good buy-low spot for the veteran receiver, who has still seen 5+ targets in each of the last 2 games and his aDOT has been shrinking each week. That’s a sign that the Rams are looking for more ways to get Robinson the football instead of him being just a deep threat. Denver’s Courtland Sutton had plenty of success last week against San Francisco while lining up out wide, which is where Robinson will line up as Kupp does most of his work from the slot (53 percent). With Kupp and Higbee drawing tons of attention, don’t be surprised if Robinson gets free in the endzone.

San Francisco 49ers touchdown scorer best bet: Deebo Samuel, WR (+130)

The Rams have not been anything special against the pass this season, allowing 252.7 yards per game, 7.0 yards per attempt and 5 touchdowns through the air. As the 49ers’ primary offensive weapon, WR1 and also a threat to run the ball, Samuel should be able to capitalize. He has rushed for 111 yards and 1 touchdown through 3 contests and last week he caught 5 of 8 targets for 73 yards. That was in an 11-10 game, too, and it’s hard to imagine this one being so low-scoring. Samuel and Jimmy Garoppolo have a nice connection and I expect it will produce some points on Monday night. At +130, Samuel has good value.

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, Josh Allen, 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.
