Week 13 of the 2023 NFL continues on Sunday with 11 games to whet your football appetite following Saturday’s smorgasbord of riches on the college gridiron. The slate includes Sunday Night Football between Kansas City and Green Bay, while the game of the day pits San Francisco against Philadelphia.

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 Sunday’s slate, and also be sure to check out our full NFL predictions.

Derrick Henry, RB, TEN (+115 at DraftKings)

Is Henry still in his absolute prime at 29 years old? Maybe not. But when you can get him at plus money to score a touchdown, it’s a strong play – especially against an opponent that gives him a favorable matchup. Indianapolis is #26 in the NFL against the run, allowing 129.3 yards per game on the ground. The Colts have given up 15 rushing touchdowns, which is as many or more than every team in the league except Carolina, Arizona and the Giants. Henry has scored 6 touchdowns this season, including 2 last week against the Panthers. He should be able to victimize his AFC South rival on Sunday. 

DeVonta Smith, WR, PHI (+200 at DraftKings)

At +200, the value on Smith is too good to pass up. It is true that the 49ers boast a stellar defense, but they are only in the middle of the pack against the pass compared to ranking #2 against the run. San Francisco is also right around the league average in terms of both touchdowns allowed and overall fantasy points allowed to wide receivers. Smith has scored 5 touchdowns so far in 2023 and 3 have come in the last 4 games. In fact, in 3 of the last 4 he has delivered at least 99 yards and 1 TD. The former Alabama standout is simply on a roll right now and he should be able to keep it going this weekend.
