Anytime Touchdown Scorers – Week 7

A tough week last week, with Deshaun Watson getting tackled on the 1 yard line, and whilst A.J. Green had a nice game (8 catches for 96 yards) he couldn’t find the end-zone.  

Game: Dallas Cowboys @ Washington Football Team
Kick-Off: 18:00 GMT
Market: Anytime Touchdown Scorer
Selection: Ezekiel Elliott
Best Odds: 1.69 with Several
Next Best: 1.62 with Will Hill
Lowest Acceptable Odds: 1.50
Comment: “After a nightmare performance against the Cardinals, I fully expect Zeke to bounce back in a big way. As much as the Cowboys want to believe that Andy Dalton simply replaces Dak Prescott, it doesn’t work like that. The Cowboys still have a very realistic shot at making the playoffs given how poor the NFC East is, but the offence has to run through Zeke, and not Dalton’s arm. The Redskins have allowed 8 rushing scores so far this season, 6th most in the NFL.”

Game: Pittsburgh Steelers @ Tennessee Titans
Kick-Off: 18:00 GMT
Market: Anytime Touchdown Scorer
Selection: Chase Claypool
Best Odds: 3.20 with Unibet
Next Best: 2.70 with Several
Lowest Acceptable Odds: 2.50
Comment: “It might be a week or two late to back ‘Mapletron’, but facing a Titans defence that’s allowed the 5th most passing yards per game, he provides a match-up nightmare, with Mike Tomlin finding more ways to get him involved down in the red-zone. Having scored 6 times in 6 starts, odds over evens won’t last for much longer.”

Game: Kansas City Chiefs @ Denver Broncos
Kick-Off: 20:25 GMT
Market: Anytime Touchdown Scorer
Selection: Phillip Lindsay
Best Odds: 4.50 with Several
Next Best: 3.85 with Unibet
Lowest Acceptable Odds: 3.50
Comment: “Returning from injury, Lindsay looked mightily impressive against a stout Patriots defence rushing for 101 yards. Whilst he didn’t find the end-zone, he did get 3 touches inside the red-zone, and with a suspension looming over Melvin Gordon the Broncos may have to rely even more on the 3rd year back who has scored 17 times in 33 starts.”

Game: Seattle Seahawks @ Arizona Cardinals
Kick-Off: 00:20 GMT
Market: Anytime Touchdown Scorer
Selection: DeAndre Hopkins
Best Odds: 2.40 with Unibet
Next Best: 2.38 with Will Hill
Lowest Acceptable Odds: 2.00
Comment: “6 weeks into the regular season, would you believe that the Seattle Seahawks have given up the most passing yards in the NFL (370 yards a game). They face a Cardinals offence that is red-hot and brings with it a lot of speed. Hopkins showed against the Jets just how he can score from anywhere on the field, and with Nuk averaging 10 targets a game he should have plenty of chances to get his third score of the season.”

I like the look of Michael Gallup, and to some degree Andy Dalton, but besides Zeke it’s tough to trust the Dallas offence right now.

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.
