The Detroit Lions defeated the Green Bay Packers on Thursday Night Football to kick off Week 4 of the NFL season. Now, we have a full slate of action this Sunday to bet on. Here, we will break down our favorite Week 4 NFL anytime touchdown props.
This is not the most exciting week of matchups, but for bettors, any week can be good if you cash some tickets, especially anytime touchdown scorers. There are a ton of bets to be made from each slate of games, which can make finding winners a challenge. Luckily, we have poured through the data and have come up with the best touchdown props for each slate (afternoon, evening, and Sunday night).
Let’s look at our three favorite NFL anytime touchdown scorer picks for Week 4.
NFL Week 4 Touchdown Scorer Odds
Below, we have included the NFL anytime touchdown betting odds for Week 4 from some of our favorite sports betting apps.
This is a risky anytime touchdown scorer prop pick because Alexander Mattison has not been very good this season. Through his first three games, Mattison only totaled 62 yards on 19 carries, and his fumble issues continued.
Things got so bad for Minnesota that they traded for Cam Akers to help beef up the running back room. Although the Vikings like to pass the ball, Minnesota has a really good offensive line that is very good in the run game.
Last week, Mattison put up a much better performance, as he had 93 rushing yards and seven targets from Kirk Cousins. Mattison’s only touchdown has come through the air on the season, and he ranks fourth on the team in targets. However, we like Mattison to score on the ground in this game, as Minnesota will go up against a weak Panthers’ run defense.
Carolina’s defense ranks 21st in yards per rush and 29th in rushing touchdowns allowed. While the Vikings are last in rushing attempts per game, this should be the first game where they are not relying on the pass to keep them in the game. Minnesota should easily take care of a bad Panthers team, which means Mattison will get more carries, which is all we need.
The 49ers’ star tight end has gotten off to a bit of a slow start this season. However, they have not needed him much this season, as San Francisco has controlled every game they have played.
Still, George Kittle has 18 targets, the second-most on the team, and 13 catches for 139 yards. In the 49ers’ first three games, they have played a couple of really strong defenses and still have made them look outmatched. This week, they are facing a Cardinals unit that picked up a big upset win over the Cowboys last week but should come crashing back down to earth against this team.
The Cardinals’ defense is not very strong up front, and the linebackers do not instill much confidence in the passing game. They have not gotten a good pass rush this season, and while the secondary is better than expected, the middle of the field should be wide-open all day behind this 49ers’ offensive line.
Our biggest concern with Kittle cashing this touchdown scorer prop is that San Francisco pulls away early. But he should still have plenty of opportunity against a bad Cardinals defense, especially when San Francisco gets in the red zone.
At this point, you will have difficulty finding Travis Kelce‘s touchdown odds at plus-money. However, he is still worth a bet in this spot. The Jets’ defense has been good but not as great as advertised, and the Chiefs’ offense is still as dangerous as ever.
In only two games, Kelce has 17 targets, which is by far the most on the team, and he has 11 receptions for 95 yards and two touchdowns. While New York’s defense has not allowed many yards to opposing tight ends, they have not played anyone with a genuine threat at the position.
The Jets’ secondary does a lot of heavy lifting for this unit. They do not allow a lot of big chunk plays, and they are also very good at tackling, which will be huge against this Chiefs offense. The problem is that they have not gotten a lot of pressure this season, and the Chiefs’ offensive line has been excellent through three games, especially in the passing game.
As long as Patrick Mahomes has enough time to do what he does, Kelce should be in a good position to score a touchdown on Sunday Night Football.
