Week 9 of the NFL season started with the Pittsburgh Steelers taking down the Tennessee Titans on an exciting Thursday Night Football matchup. We. have a loaded NFL Sunday slate ahead of us, which means it is time to take a look at our favorite Week 9 NFL anytime touchdown scorer props.
There are plenty of great matchups in each time slot this week, which is exciting for both football fans and NFL bettors. Here, we will give our best touchdown prop bets from each slate of games (afternoon, evening, and Sunday night) with the best odds from our top-rated sports betting apps.
Let’s look at our three favorite NFL anytime touchdown scorer picks for Week 9.
Amari Cooper continues to be one of the most reliable receivers in the NFL, even with the Browns quarterback situation this year. He has had three different starting quarterbacks, and outside of the game started by Dorian Thompson-Robinson, he has produced.
While he only has one touchdown on the season, he also has 58 targets, 478 yards receiving, and is currently at a career-best 15.9 yards per reception. It was announced on Friday that Deshaun Watson will start against the Cardinals, which is probably a good sign for Cooper and the Browns’ pass game, even though Watson has struggled.
P.J. Walker limits your ability to throw the ball downfield, and Watson has targeted Cooper more than anyone since he was traded to Cleveland. Arizona also has one of the worst defenses in the NFL, especially against the pass. They rank 28th in yards per pass despite teams only passing the ball 31 times per game. The pass rush is nonexistent, which is how you slow down this Browns team, which should give Watson more time and allow Cooper to beat a leaky Cardinals secondary deep.
At the very least, we know Cooper will have the ball thrown his way a lot. If that is the case, he will be in an excellent spot to cash a touchdown scorer prop.
The Eagles offense does not look the same as last season, but this is still one of the best units in the NFL. Behind the best offensive line in the NFL, Philadelphia’s offense ranks third in scoring, ninth in yards per play, and first in third down conversion rate.
Part of the Eagles’ slight regression is due to Jalen Hurts‘ turnover issues. He has eight interceptions and three fumbles, and he is not throwing the ball as effectively down the field. However, this offense still moves the ball and scores. Hurts already has six rushing touchdowns, and obviously, some have come from the almost unstoppable ‘Tush Push,’ which is becoming the most dangerous play in sports.
Dallas’s defense is among the best in the NFL. They do not allow many explosive plays, but they have also struggled to defend mobile quarterbacks. They allow 44 rushing yards per game to opposing quarterbacks, which is by far the most in the NFL. While the defensive line is solid, they will have a tough task against this Eagles’ unit.
For this game, we should be able to trust Philadelphia to move the ball downfield and set Hurts up to score using his legs. If and when the Eagles reach the red zone, Hurts is as dangerous a scoring threat as anyone on the team.
We have a tremendous Sunday Night Football matchup to close out a full day of NFL action. The Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals have become one of the most enjoyable rivalries in the NFL, and with the Bengals starting to wake up after a sluggish start to the year, this has all the making of a terrific game.
Even though Cininnati’s offense ranks towards the bottom of the league in most categories, they have been playing really good ball lately. During their three-game winning streak, they are putting up 27.3 points per game, and they have taken down two of the NFC’s best teams in San Francisco and Seattle.
The main storyline of the Bengals’ mid-season surge has been Joe Burrow. After injuring his calf during camp, he looked horrendous to start the season, completing only 57.6% of his passes for 728 yards and two touchdowns to two interceptions.
Over his last three games, it has been a different story. Burrow is completing 77.8% of passes for 785 yards and eight touchdowns with only two interceptions. His yards per attempt are also way up, and he will be going up against a Buffalo defense that has struggled all season against the pass.
The Bengals have an arsenal of pass-catchers for Burrow to use, including Tee Higgins. While his targets per game have declined over the last few weeks, the Bills allow a lot of big plays in the passing game, and Higgins has been one of the more reliable deep threats during Burrow’s career.
