Our anytime touchdown bets have gone 2-1 over the last three weeks of the NFL season. Who are we betting on to score a touchdown this week? Let’s dive into NFL Week 5 – best anytime touchdown scorer bets.
NFL Week 5 – BEST ANYTIME TOUCHDOWN BETS
Anthony Richardson +135 (DraftKings)
We have hit on Richardson once already this season, and we are ready to go right back to the well with Richardson at plus money this season. Make no mistake about it – Richardson is the Colts’ best goal-line back. Jonathan Taylor is expected to return this week, and while that could be a cause for concern, Taylor should be a decoy for the Colts.
The Titans have one of the best rushing defenses in the NFL, so it won’t be easy for Taylor to get the ground game going. Indianapolis will have more success by running bootlegs or QB powers for Richardson to take advantage of. So, considering Richardson’s skillset and the Titans’ defense, it makes more sense for Richardson to get the goal-line carries in this game. Also, Richardson is a threat who can score from 20+ yards out, which also helps his case here.
Tony Pollard +100 (Caesars)
Tony Pollard leads the NFL in attempts in the red zone, and he has also seen targets down in the red area as well. Pollard has not had a ton of success, but that is because the Cowboys’ offense has been terrible in the red zone. With that being said, the Cowboys’ offense was the best in the red zone last season, so regression is likely, and that is a good thing for Dallas.
The 49ers defense front is great, but their run defense numbers, garbage time excluded, are not great. Dallas should be able to move the ball up and down the field on the 49ers, and Pollard should find paydirt to end some drives. The price is not that attractive, but considering the matchup and the opportunities, Pollard should score.
Garrett Wilson +185 (Caesars)
Garrett Wilson has slowly seen his target and reception count tick each week, and he has the best matchup he will see all season on Sunday. The Broncos pass defense is terrible. Denver cannot pressure the passer whatsoever, and Zach Wilson will have time to throw, and he should be able to connect with Wilson. Yes, Wilson may draw a tough matchup against Pat Surtain, but on any play that Wilson is not shadowed by Surtain, he is a threat to score. Wilson is the Jets best offensive weapon on the outside, and he should be the one to reap the rewards against the Broncos.
