Cincinnati Bengals vs. Jacksonville Jaguars: Top Anytime TD Scorer Bets
The Bengals and Joe Burrow are coming off a huge road victory in Pittsburgh as they welcome Trevor Lawrence and the Jaguars to town, who are still searching for their first win of the 2021 season. Bengals rookie wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase has scored in each of the first three weeks of the season. He is priced at even money (+100) to make it three in a row. I'm here to find you the best value for your bet though.
Last week was rather sour. We went a pretty bad 5-14 across all picks. The amazing part about touchdown scorer picks though is we still finished up 4.08 units! Crazy I know. It's because the odds we get on these picks are so much longer than a regular bet against the spread or on a point total. Last weekend we hit some good winners like; Browns tight end Austin Hooper (+350), Packers receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling (+333), and Bills receiver Emmanuel Sanders (+275).
We are learning lessons and using them here to build our profit as we move into the NFL season. Let's get to my anytime touchdown picks for Thursday night football!

Bengals vs. Jaguars Top Anytime TD Scorer Bets
Trevor Lawrence (+450)
Last year at Clemson, Lawrence rushed for 8 scores in just 10 games. He has a nose for the endzone. He's yet to use his rushing ability at the next level though. Rookies tend to duck and run quite often but Lawrence has been hesitant. Last week he rushed six times for 27 yards. Last Thursday night we were all shocked when quarterback Sam Darnold rushed for TWO touchdowns. Let's make sure we're on one of the quarterbacks to do it again this Thursday. I'll side with the rookie and who's not coming off of a knee injury last season.
CJ Uzomah (+300)
Houston Tight End Pharaoh Brown 4 receptions for 67 yards against the Jaguars. Broncos tight end Noah Fant 4 catches 33 yards and a touchdown. In week 3 the Jags faced the Cardinals who don't necessarily utilize their tight ends so we're giving them a pass. This is what starting tight ends have done so far against the Jags. In 2020 the Jaguars allowed the second-most touchdowns in the NFL to Tight Ends. With Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins out, Joe Burrow will need a third target. Uzomah leads the way with a 72.5% snap share. He is next in line for targets behind, Boyd, Chase, and Mixon.
Marvin Jones Jr. (+220)
Jones Jr. leads his new team in snaps at wide receiver. He also leads them by a wide margin in red-zone targets. He's already found the endzone twice this season. He has quickly become Lawrence's favorite target already receiving 28 looks through three weeks. The Bengals were tied for the fourth-most receiving touchdowns allowed to wide receivers a season ago. They currently rank tenth in receiving yards allowed to the position.
