As an Atlanta Falcons fan, I'm truly dreading their Thursday night prime time game against the New England Patriots. The "28-3 game" will likely be shoved in my face all game as the Patriots, who are 7-point favorites, steamroll the Dirty Birds once again.
If I'm going to have to sit through it, I want to at least make some money on the game. One of the most entertaining ways to do just that, is to bet on anytime TD scorers. All you need for this bet to cash, is for the player you bet on to get into the endzone, it's just that easy.
Here are my three favorites for Thursday night. Odds listed are via WynnBET.
Anytime TD Props for Falcons vs. Patriots
- Wayne Gallman +225
- Jakobi Meyers +175
- Olamide Zaccheaus +300
Wayne Gallman +225
When Cordarrelle Patterson left the game with an injury last week, it was Wayne Gallman who got the bulk of the playing time instead of Mike Davis. He ended up getting 15 carries for 55 yards and added a catch for 21 yards.
I expect Gallman to get plenty of looks again tonight, especially if Cordarrelle Patterson can't go. He's currently listed as a game-time decision.
Jakobi Meyers +175
Jakobi Meyers finally found the end zone for the first time in his career this past week against the Browns, and now that he's gotten over the hump, I expect touchdowns to come in bunches.
He has established himself as one of the top targets for Mac Jones, as he's hauled in at least four receptions in all but one game so far this season. If the Patriots decide to attack the Falcons through the air, Meyers is a great bet to get his second touchdown at +175.
Olamide Zaccheaus +300
This is my favorite bet of the bunch. Olamide Zaccheaus has stepped into the role that many people thought Russell Gage would be in this season with the Falcons. He already has three touchdown receptions on the year, and he received a season-high seven targets last week against the Cowboys.
If you're looking for a dark horse bet, Zaccheaus is the guy to wager on.
