Anytime Touchdown Scorers – Week 2

Game: Atlanta Falcons @ Dallas Cowboys
Kick-Off: 18:00 GMT
Market: Anytime Touchdown Scorer
Selection: Dak Prescott
Best Odds: 4.35 with Several
Next Best: 4.33 with Several
Lowest Acceptable Odds: 4.00
Comment: “It was a disappointing start to season for Dak, as Aaron Donald was a one man wrecking crew in the middle of that much talked about offensive line. His rushing ability goes very much under the radar, but with 21 scores in 65 starts it shouldn’t go unnoticed the extra dimension he brings to this offence. The Falcons defence looked very average against the Seahawks, and if the middle opens up, you know Dak will take it.”

Game: Atlanta Falcons @ Dallas Cowboys
Kick-Off: 18:00 GMT
Market: Anytime Touchdown Scorer
Selection: Todd Gurley
Best Odds: 2.20 with Will Hill
Next Best: 2.10 with Several
Lowest Acceptable Odds: 1.91
Comment: “We go back to the Todd Gurley well. After delivering the goods on opening weekend, I see no reason not back him again, this time with odds a little bit bigger. He faces a Cowboys defence that really struggled stopping an average Rams ground game, and Gurley is clearly established as the Falcons goal-line back. Atlanta should be able to move the ball downfield against the Cowboys, affording Gurley plenty of opportunities.”

Game: Jacksonville Jaguars @ Tennessee Titans
Kick-Off: 18:00 GMT
Market: Anytime Touchdown Scorer
Selection: Gardner Minshew
Best Odds: 17.00 with Bet365
Next Best: 13.00 with Unibet
Lowest Acceptable Odds: 9.00
Comment: “Yet a score a rushing touchdown in his short NFL career. I feel it’s only a matter of time, giving the lack of a bell-cow back in the offence, the Jags are going to have to get a little more creative in and around the 5 yard line, so why not a naked boot-leg, or a play-action roll-out. Minshew did rush for 4 scores in his final season at College, and does have some rushing ability.”

Game: Los Angeles Rams @ Philadelphia Eagles
Kick-Off: 18:00 GMT
Market: Anytime Touchdown Scorer
Selection: Cooper Kupp
Best Odds: 3.00 with Several
Next Best: 2.90 with Unibet
Lowest Acceptable Odds: 2.60
Comment: “After a very impressive performance against the Cowboys, the Rams look to go 2-0 in what looks a very competitive NFC West this season. I would imagine that with Kupp lining up the slot, Darius Slay will travel with Robert Woods, allowing Kupp to match-up against a sub-par Eagles secondary. With 21 scores in 40 career starts, there’s plenty of value to be had in odds around 2/1.”

Game: Minnesota Vikings @ Indianapolis Colts
Kick-Off: 18:00 GMT
Market: Anytime Touchdown Scorer
Selection: Kyle Rudolph
Best Odds: 4.50 with Several
Next Best: 4.25 with Unibet
Lowest Acceptable Odds: 4.00
Comment: “With Stefon Diggs in Buffalo, you know that Adam Thielen is going to get a lot of attention, especially after his monster game against the Packers. Rudolph certainly isn’t going to score on 50 yard bomb from Kirk Cousins, but has always been a weapon inside the red-zone, and with a 36.4% career scoring rate you have to like odds over 3/1. Dalvin Cook will get most of the attention inside the 5 yard line which is when Rudolph can sneak out into the back of the end-zone.”

Game: New York Giants @ Chicago Bears
Kick-Off: 18:00 GMT
Market: Anytime Touchdown Scorer
Selection: Jimmy Graham
Best Odds: 4.20 with Several
Next Best: 3.75 with SpreadEx
Lowest Acceptable Odds: 3.50
Comment: “Much like the Gurley selection, I see no reason not to back Graham once again. He was on the field for 80% of the Bears offensive snaps last week, and as I suspected, he was a big target in the red-zone for Mitch Trubisky. The Giants don’t have anyone who can match up with Graham, so don’t be surprised to see Graham get his 2nd score of the season in a jump ball scenario.”

As per usual, stake 3% of your starting bankroll onto each selection.

For those of you who prefer a points system, start with an initial betting bank of 100 points, and stake 3 points per selection.
