We are taking a look and ranking the Top 5 best Anytime Touchdown Scorer bets for Conference Championship Sunday.
Top 5 Anytime Touchdown Scorer Bets today
Christian McCaffrey (-370)
LOL -370. It's no surprise that his odds are where they are at because he has been one of the best Anytime Touchdown scorers for a couple of years now. He was 4th in the league with 14 rushing touchdowns in the regular season and he added 2 more in the 49ers win over the Packers last week. The Lions 2nd ranked run defense kind of scares me off of a -370 but it's McCaffrey, Good for a parlay piece but not even worth thinking of betting solo even if you are going to bet big.
Travis Kelce (+125)
Travis Kelce has made more headlines off the field than on the field this season with his girlfriend Taylor Swift (who CBS will show over 11.5 times today). Kelce had a stretch during the regular season where he only scored 2 touchdowns in 11 games. But flip the switch to the playoffs and he's coming off of a 2 touchdown game last week. Kelce is a guy who Mahomes has trusted and goes to in the playoffs for a long time now and a stat to prove it is that Kelce has scored a touchdown in 12 of his last 15 playoff games!
David Montgomery (+150)
Montgomery didn't score last week because the Lions decided to give it to Craig Reynolds from Kutztown instead. The 49ers strong run defense is definitely a factor in his odds being listed at +150 on Fanduel because he's been in the - odds for just about every game this season and he's still been one of the most profitable Anytime Touchdown Scorer picks all season. He has scored in 12 of his 16 games this season (75%). Despite the 49ers strong run defense overall, they have allowed opposing running backs to average 3.6 yards per carry in the red zone so I like Montgomery's chances, especially at +150!
George Kittle (+125)
Kittle didn't produce a ton of touchdowns this season but he did have one last week. It's more about the matchup today for him and the fact that the Lions have the 2nd best run defense but the 2nd worst pass defense. Deebo Samuel has been cleared to play but who knows how he will hold up. With the Lions pass defense being towards the bottom of the league, look for the 49ers to take advantage of that and there's a good chance that Purdy will find Kittle in the end zone.
Gus Edwards (+140)
Gus Edwards had the most touchdowns of all Ravens this season with 13. He did not score in last week's blowout win over the Texans but he scored in 8 of his 11 games before that. The Chiefs defense ranked 18th against the run so that is a weakness the Ravens will look to attack and pound it into the end zone once they get down in the red zone. +140 is looking like nice odds for Gus.
