The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were tied a season ago for the most wins against the spread (ATS) at home in 2021, going 7-3-0 on the season at Raymond James Stadium.

Tonight on Monday Night Football, they remain in search of their first ATS home victory of the season when they host the New Orleans Saints in Round 2 of their NFC South rivalry from Tampa.

The good news for Tampa? They face veteran quarterback Andy Dalton, who's the second-least profitable quarterback ATS in primetime in 20-plus years.

Before we dive into our favorite candidates to find the end zone, let's first take a look at the best available odds on the board for tonight:

Best Monday Night Football Anytime Touchdown Scorer Picks for Saints vs. Buccaneers

  • Chris Godwin (+188)
  • Taysom Hill (+330)
  • Rashid Shaheed (+800)

Chris Godwin

Godwin's line is not just one of my favorite TD scorer props for tonight, it's also one of my top available props on the board.

The veteran slot wideout has seen double digit targets in all but three games he's been on the field, and comes off his highest targeted game of the season last week vs. the Browns; catching 12 of 13 targets including a touchdown.

Godwin has found the end zone in two straight after not finding paydirt all season. Brady throws the most of any quarterback in the league on a per game basis, and should continue to be peppered all game long.

Taysom Hill

For a player responsible for seven total touchdowns already this year as a rusher and receiver, FanDuel's odds are awfully long for a player the Saints design red zone opportunities around consistently.

Hill is a constant threat inside the 10-yard line as well, with three of his six rushing touchdowns coming from the down and goal situations.

With Juwan Johnson out, Hill could also see some more opportunities along with Adam Trautman at tight end as well.

Rashid Shaheed

Shaheed played more than 50% of the snaps for the first time all season last week, and could provide a much-needed spark to this lagging Saints offense. Only Chris Olave ran more routes at the wide receiver position in Week 13, indicating his role is continuing to grow.

The Buccaneers defense is still designed first and foremost to stop the run and put pressure on the quarterback. If Dalton can find him on a screen, or on a quick crossing route in the middle of the field, this could pay off at big odds.
