After a fun first two games on NFL Wild Card Weekend, we now have three games to look forward to today.

What better way to enjoy Wild Card Sunday than by placing a few touchdown bets? Anytime touchdown scorer bets are some of the easiest and most entertaining wagers you can place. All you need to win your bet is for your player to find the end zone. They score six points, you cash your bet.

Here are my three favorite touchdown scorer bets for today's action. All odds listed are via WynnBET.

NFL Wild Card Sunday Touchdown Scorer Bets

  • Boston Scott +120 vs. Buccaneers
  • Kyle Juszczyk +700 vs. Cowboys
  • Derrick Gore +200 vs. Steelers

Boston Scott +120 vs. Buccaneers

Believe it or not, Boston Scott was the most profitable touchdown scorer this season. If you bet on him to score a touchdown in each game this season, you'd be up over 13 units.

Let's ride that train one more time today. He's scored three times in the last two games, and if the Eagles want to beat the Bucs, running the football effectively should be their top priority. In fact, no team runs the ball more than the Eagles, so betting on one of their running backs to find the end zone seems like a great bet to make.

Kyle Juszczyk +700 vs. Cowboys

Kyle Juszczyk is one of my favorite players to bet on to find the end zone. The fullback/gadget player for the 49ers has become one of Kyle Shanahan's favorite players to target close to the end zone, especially on trick plays. The 49ers will need to pull out all the stops today to upset the Cowboys, so I expect Shanahan to look to one of his favorite unconventional weapons when they get close to the goalline.

At +700 (bet $100 to profit $700), it's worth a shot if you're looking for a big payout.

Derrick Gore +200 vs. Steelers

All signs points to the Chiefs blowing out the Steelers in the final game of today's slate. If they do, look for them to start getting their backups playing time in the second half to keep their starters healthy. That's when Derrick Gore, the Chiefs third string running back, will have his time to shine.

In the Week 16 meeting between these teams, Gore has 12 carries for 43 rushing yards and 3 receptions for 61 receiving yards. I expect a repeat performance today against the same team, especially considering the Steelers have the worst run defense in the NFL.
