Week 11 of the NFL season starts with a tremendous Thursday Night Football matchup as the Baltimore Ravens host the Cincinnati Bengals. Here, we will break down our two favorite Thursday Night Football anytime touchdown scorer props.
This is undoubtedly the best TNF matchup we have had all season. Both teams are coming off losses on last-second field goals last week, which makes tonight a massive game for the AFC North race. Baltimore (7-3) currently sits atop the AFC North, with Cincinnati (5-4) at the bottom of the standings. A win by either side will be huge for playoff implications as we enter the regular season’s second half.
NFL Thursday Night Football has not been enjoyable this season, but Bengals vs. Ravens should be an excellent way to kick off this week’s action. If you need help finding a bet for tonight, we advise you to take a look at our best TNF anytime touchdown scorer picks.
Thursday Night Football Touchdown Scorer Odds
Here, we have included the anytime touchdown scorer odds for Bengals vs. Ravens from some of our top-rated sports betting apps.
Bengals vs. Ravens Anytime Touchdown Scorer Props
There are not many duos in the NFL better than Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase. While he has not replicated his massive success from his rookie season, Chase is still putting up monster numbers. Through nine games, Chase has 69 receptions on 99 targets for 821 yards and five touchdowns.
A few injuries have slowed down his dominance over the last two seasons, but he is still one of the best deep threats in football, as evidenced by his 64-yard touchdown against Houston last week. Chase struggled at the beginning of the season, like the entire team, but since winning four of their previous five, Chase and the Bengals have been on fire.
Chase is averaging 11.6 targets, 8.0 receptions, 107.4 yards, and one touchdown per game over the last five. While the stats indicate Baltimore has one of the best defenses against the pass, this is an excellent spot for Burrow and Chase to connect for a big game.
The Ravens’ defense has faced a lot of lousy quarterback play this season. They have played three injured quarterbacks (Burrow, Ryan Tannehill, and Deshaun Watson), Josh Dobbs in Arizona, and rookie Dorian Thompson-Robinson, who was named the starter on one-hour notice before Baltimore’s beat down of Cleveland.
Baltimore is also dealing with some injuries on defense, including Marlon Humphrey, who is listed as doubtful as of Thursday morning. Expect Cincinnati to keep the ball in the air for this game, especially since their rushing attack has been ineffective all season. This is also the first time the Ravens will see a top-tier quarterback play this season, so we can expect some regression from this defense.
Chase has been among the most targeted players in the NFL since he entered the league, and that should continue tonight, which gives Chase plenty of opportunities to cash a touchdown scorer prop.
Although Mark Andrews‘ production has slowed since his monster 2021 season, he is still the most consistently targeted player on the Ravens. To be fair, the Ravens’ quarterback situation has been a nightmare over the last two seasons, but Lamar Jackson is healthy and is playing like the MVP-caliber quarterback he is.
Even with his slight dip in production, Andrews ranks fifth among tight ends in targets and second in red zone targets, and all six of his touchdowns have come in the red zone, which is the most by a tight end this season.
After a disastrous start, Cincinnati’s defense is starting to even out, but they are still not a great unit. Not only do they give up a ton of yards per play, both in the air and on the ground, but the Bengals’ defense has trouble getting third-down stops.
The Ravens rank second in red zone trips, and with Cincinnati having one of the worst defenses against tight ends, Baltimore’s offense could be in for a monster night. Baltimore will be able to move the ball, and when they reach the red zone, they are money, ranking fourth in red zone touchdown conversion rate. No player on the team has been targeted or had more success in the red zone than Andrews, and that should continue tonight.
However, since his rookie season, Andrews is also one of the best big-play tight ends, ranking fourth in receptions of 20+ yards by a tight end. With Cincinnati’s struggles against opposing tight ends, Andrews should be in an excellent spot to cash a touchdown scorer prop.
