A Christmas Day Monday Night Football could be a Super Bowl preview as the two best teams in each conference face off and the two NFL MVP favorites lead the Ravens vs. 49ers NFL anytime TD scorer props.
This week’s Christmas weekend schedule culminates with a pair of 11-3 teams squaring off at Levi’s Stadium in the Bay Area. Here, we will give out our best touchdown scorer props from our top-rated sports betting apps for this Monday night matchup.
Let’s look at our favorite NFL anytime touchdown scorer picks for Ravens vs. 49ers.
Ravens vs. 49ers Anytime TD Scorer Props
Deebo Samuel is heating up at the right time with at least one touchdown in the last four games. It doesn’t matter if it is off a pass from Brock Purdy or getting in the endzone through the ground, they all count the same.
The 49ers come into this game with the second-ranked offense in the league, second in passing, and third in rushing. Samuel is second only to Christian McCaffrey in rushing and receiving touchdowns for the 49ers this season.
Samuel has been a big contributor in both categories during his four-game hot streak and has gotten in the endzone at least once in five of the past six games. Last week, Samuel had the two touchdown receptions for the 49ers at the Cardinals.
The week before that, against Seattle, he scored one through the air and another on the ground. At the Eagles one week prior, he got two receiving TDs and one rushing. Even when he didn’t get one through the air four weeks ago, the 49ers still went to him on the ground.
With a lot of eyes on the seasons Brock Purdy and Christian McCaffrey are having, perhaps Samuel is going under the radar. If you look at his most recent numbers, the time to cash in may be now because his price will eventually adjust if he continues scoring like this.
The Ravens boast the league’s best rushing game. A lot of those yards come from Lamar Jackson but Gus Edwards isn’t far behind despite a dip in his numbers in the recent stretch.
Edwards is the Ravens’ leader in rushing TDs and that bodes well if you’re looking for anytime scorers. With fellow RB Keaton Mitchell on IR, Edwards would be the more experienced runner to go to as the team looks to clinch the top seed in the AFC sooner rather than later.
What might have bettors uneasy is his recent numbers, but Edwards broke a two-game drought with a TD last week in the win against Jacksonville. Before that drought, Edwards got into the endzone in five consecutive games.
With Mitchell’s injury, Justice Hill is an enticing play but hasn’t scored since Oct. 8 at Pittsburgh. Hill’s two other touchdowns this season came in Week 1 against Houston. Lamar Jackson hasn’t run in for a TD since Oct. 22, so Edwards looks like a safer play if the Ravens score through the ground.
Isaiah Likely has been the benefactor of opportunity following injury to Ravens TE Mark Andrews. Andrews is the team’s leader in receiving touchdowns, but in his absence, Likely has stepped in to fill the void.
In the past two games, Likely has caught one touchdown pass against the likes of the Jaguars and the Rams. Those are his first two touchdowns of the season and that’s likely why his price may be a bargain.
The 49ers won’t be an easy test with the ninth-ranked defense in the NFL. Some will make an argument that Likely has the benefit of training with the second-ranked defense in the league so perhaps that could be enough to get him ready for this high-profile matchup.
Likely has also been the main receiving target in two of the past three games for the Ravens. While Baltimore isn’t a big passing team, ranked 20th, it shows the intent of the team to go to the 23-year-old TE in his second pro year.
NFL Multiple Anytime TD Scorer Odds
With these two top-six offenses facing off, the probability for players with multiple touchdowns is in play.
Christian McCaffrey has been a lock to score but his odds make him a tough play with little reward attached to what you’re laying on the line. He has, however, cash as an anytime TD scorer in all but two games this season which is why his price is set at . In five games, he has at least two TDs and that would pay if he does it against the Ravens.
Deebo Samuel is a player who is worth a look in this category as well with multiple touchdowns in the past three games. A fourth consecutive occasion would pay , which may not be a bad play given his current run.
