Anytime Touchdown Scorer Odds
Here, we have included the best available anytime touchdown scorer betting odds for Lions vs Cowboys from some of our favorite sports betting apps.
Typically, the best value play is to consider someone with plus-money odds. Betting on a player priced at -150 or shorter across the board only makes sense if they’re a near lock to get in the end zone, but CeeDee Lamb is exactly that. Few wide receivers across the league have had a bigger role in a good passing offense than Lamb throughout the second half of the season. Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has targeted him at least 10 times in seven of the last nine games, and Lamb’s scored in seven of those games.
Against a Detroit team that features A) an offense likely to make this game a shootout and B) a vulnerable defense that has struggled to get stops in recent weeks, Lamb is worth a look, especially at -150 at BetMGM.
Dynamic Lions rookie RB Jahmyr Gibbs is coming off one of his biggest days of the season in last week’s win over the Minnesota Vikings. He had 22 combined rushing attempts and targets as a receiver, which he turned into 100 yards and two TDs on the ground. Gibbs has been extremely productive all year, with fellow RB David Montgomery’s healthy role being the only thing that has prevented Gibbs from posting even bigger numbers.
Gibbs is hot right now, with four rushing TDs in the last three weeks, and he’s facing a defense that gave up 266 yards on the ground to Buffalo two weeks ago (though Dallas did hold up much better against Miami’s running game last week).
Detroit TE Sam LaPorta is another rookie having a massive season for coach Dan Campbell and the Lions. He’s a good value play in this game. LaPorta caught three TD passes two weeks ago against the Broncos, but was limited to just 18 yards receiving and no TDs on three catches last Sunday against the Vikings.
Between Gibbs, Montgomery, and WR Amon-Ra St. Brown, Lions QB Jared Goff has several options besides Laporta. But that also means he’s not the primary focus for opposing defenses, which has helped him rack up nine TDs on the year, including five in the last five games.
Monday Night Football (on Saturday) Anytime Touchdown Parlay Odds
If you are following our Monday Night Football anytime touchdown scorer picks, you can parlay them for a much bigger payout. The odds for each touchdown prop will differ depending on the sportsbook you use. However, even with one minus-money player prop parlayed with a plus-money player prop, you should get an excellent number to bet on.
At FanDuel, you can parlay Lamb (-170) and Gibbs (+105) to score a touchdown on Saturday, and you will be given +225 odds. This means that a $100 bettor would be up $225 if both players score a touchdown.
