Week 8 of the NFL season kicked off with the Buffalo Bills defeating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday Night Football. We have a loaded Sunday slate ahead of us, so it is time to take a look at our favorite Week 8 NFL anytime touchdown scorer props from our top-rated sports betting apps.
The matchups are not that great this week, but we still have plenty of games to watch and place a few wagers on. Here, we will give our best touchdown prop bets from each slate of games (afternoon, evening, and Sunday night).
Let’s look at our three favorite NFL anytime touchdown scorer picks for Week 8.
The former Biletnikoff winner is emerging at a crucial time for the Vikings. Jordan Addison started his NFL career with a bang, as he caught a touchdown in his first two games. With Justin Jefferson sidelined for a few weeks, Minnesota has needed a playmaker on offense they can lean on for big-chunk plays, and Addison has filled that role perfectly.
Since Jefferson’s injury, Addison has caught 10 passes for 151 yards and three touchdowns, including two touchdown grabs last week on Monday Night Football against the 49ers. He has also been one of the best deep threats in football, which should play very well against a Packers’ defense that gives up a lot of chunk plays.
The secondary is not too bad in coverage, but Green Bay has not had an effective pass rush all season, and the Vikings have one of the better offensive lines in the league, especially in pass-pro. With almost no threat of a running game for Minnesota, expect Kirk Cousins to have another busy night throwing the ball. Right now, his favorite target is Addison, and when he gets his number called, he is producing at a high level.
If you have been following our NFL anytime touchdown scorer props this season, you know we have leaned on Isiah Pacheco a lot this season. Although Kansas City is a pass-first offense, Pacheco has been one of the most critical players on the team, and with the way the Chiefs are rolling teams, he should get plenty of touches in this game.
On the season, Pacheco has 100 rushes for 419 yards and four total touchdowns, with three of them coming on the ground. He has scored in four of his last five games, and he has the pleasure of going against a Broncos defense that is on a historically bad pace.
Denver ranks 31st in scoring (31), points per play (.477), and yards per pass (7.9). They are last in yards per game (424.7), yards per play (6.5), yards per rush (5.5), and touchdowns allowed per game (3.6). The Broncos are also starting to sell off some of their best talent on defense, which means we could be in store for even more regression from this unit.
I have no doubt in my mind that the Chiefs will be able to move the ball against this defense. While the offensive line is average, Patrick Mahomes is putting up another ridiculous season, and as the game starts to get out of hand, Pacheco will get his touches.
The last time we picked D.J. Moore to cash a touchdown prop, he put up 230 yards and three touchdowns against the Commanders on TNF. Since then, he has not scored or eclipsed 100 yards receiving, but he still has 17 targets over his last two games.
Moore ranks in the top 15 in yards per reception (15.9), and while the Bears pass-attack has not been good this season, Moore is still finding ways to get involved. Chicago will be without Justin Fields again this week, but backup Tyson Bagent looked solid in his first career NFL start, and to no surprise, he targeted Moore the most in the win over the Raiders.
Now, we can probably expect some regression from Bagent since teams have some more film on him, but he is facing a terrible Chargers secondary, and Moore has already shown what he can do against below-average defenses.
Los Angeles’ defense ranks last in yards per pass (8.1), and they are allowing teams to score three touchdowns per game. We already saw it last week, but Moore should continue being the focal point of this offense and will be in a good spot to reach pay dirt once again.
