Touchdown Prop Bets: First And Anytime Touchdown Props

While sports bettors have plenty of options to choose from during each week of NFL games, some stand out more than others when it comes to instant gratification. Touchdown props fall into that category.

If your choices hit paydirt, you’ll have some celebrating to do along with the players on the field. In this guide, we’ll cover what you need to know, beginning with a look at the latest TD prop odds.

How to bet on NFL touchdown props

On the surface, NFL TD props are simple and straightforward wagers. If you bet on a player to score, and he does, you win. However, there are several variations of the bet, all of which will have their own odds.

  • Anytime TD scorer: A wager on a player to score at any time during the game.
  • First or last TD of the game: Bet on which player will score the opening or final touchdown of the game.
  • Player to score two-plus TDs: Place your bet on a player to have a multi-score game.
  • First TD scorer by team: Pick which players will cross the goal line first for their teams.
  • Over/under on player TDs: You pick over or under a line that the sportsbook sets.

The anytime TD wager tends to capture the most attention from bettors, while the other options are there for those who like to take a more strategic approach with some extra risk.

Other ways to bet on NFL TD props

Beyond the basic and slightly more advanced options, there are other ways to factor TD betting into NFL wagering:

  • TD/moneyline parlay: A two-leg parlay where you tie together a player to score along with the outcome of the game.
  • Team/player to score the first TD and win: Place a combo bet on the team or player to score the game’s first touchdown, plus that team to win the game.
  • Touchdowns by quarter: Bet on which players will find paydirt in a specific quarter.
  • Player to score TD in first, second, or both halves: Wager on players to score a touchdown in the first, second, or both halves of the game.
  • Defense/special teams TDs: Some sportsbooks offer a standalone bet on whether there will be a DST touchdown in the game.

In addition, be on the lookout for special promos for NFL touchdown props. You may find options like odds boosts, bet insurance, and special parlays throughout the course of the season.

Odds and payouts for NFL TD prop bets

Many TD prop bets will have multiple options for bettors to choose from, similar to a futures bet. Others can have just two choices, similar to what you would find in a standard moneyline or over/under bet.

As always, payouts on winning bets will depend on your stake and the odds when you placed your bet. Let’s walk through examples of both types:

Buffalo Bills vs. Los Angeles Rams TD scorer anytime

Cooper Kupp+110
Stefon Diggs+120
Cam Akers+140
Devin Singletary+150
Gabriel Davis+170
Allen Robinson+180

A bet like this will be odds for all of the players that the sportsbook deems to have at least a chance of finding the end zone. The list of options will begin with the top favorites, as in the skill position players who handle the ball the most.

As you move further down the list, there will be odds for other players, including the starting QBs, offensive role players, and the defense/special teams for both sides. The less likely it is for a player to score — at least in the eyes of the oddsmakers — the longer the odds will be.

If we look at our example, a $50 bet on Kupp at odds of +110 would bring back $55 in profit if he scores at any time during the game, while the same amount on Davis at +170 would be for the chance to win $85 in profit.

Derrick Henry — total touchdowns scored in game

  • Over 1.5 (+155)
  • Under 1.5 (-175)

Two-sided TD props tend to be for top players. For this example, we have to decide if we think Henry will clear the 1.5-TD line. If he fails to find the end zone or scores just once, then betting on the under is the correct call, while over bets would win with a multi-score game. At odds of -175, a $50 wager has a chance to win $28.55, while $50 at +155 could win $77.50.

Can you parlay NFL TD props?

The potential for solid returns is a good part of the appeal of TD props. For example, outside of the top favorites, positive odds are common for an anytime TD bet, which translates into the chance to double your money or more on winning wagers.

You can also include touchdown props in parlay wagers, either same-game parlays or regular ones that span several contests. The returns on winning parlay bets can be quite lucrative, but there’s a big caveat.

To win, you have to get all of your selections correct. If you miss on just one pick, then the bet loses, and you’ll lose your initial stake. Before placing a parlay, take the time to consider the risk to reward and your comfort level.

Tips for touchdown prop bets

Betting on NFL TD props can be fun, but it can also be frustrating when your selections fail to find the end zone. No matter how well you research, that possibility will always be there. However, here are some tips to keep in mind as you consider where to bet:

  • Game script and projected score: The odds and lines can help you estimate the amount of scoring the oddsmakers expect to see in the game. From there, you can try to envision how the game itself will play out. By taking a step back and assessing the contest as a whole, you’ll walk away with better insight into how things might play out.
  • Fantasy stats and projections: Player props share a lot in common with fantasy sports. In both cases, you’re trying to figure out which players will perform the best. There are plenty of websites and apps that are devoted to fantasy projections. While none of them are crystal balls, there are some solid spots to help with your research.
  • Matchup and recent play: Dig in to see which teams have the best chance to be productive on the ground or through the air for this week’s games. Next, examine what has been happening over the last few games for the most intriguing candidates. Players and teams can go through hot and cold streaks, so try to identify those.
