TNF Los Angeles Chargers vs. Kansas City Chiefs Top Anytime TD Scorer Bets

Click Here for Chargers vs Chiefs TNF Odds

Week 15 provides us with what should be a high-scoring shootout on Thursday night when the Chargers take on the Chiefs. This game has the highest projected total of the week and with good reason. Fortunately entering tonight's game both of these teams currently are not dealing with Covid-19 in their locker room too much and should nearly have their complete arsenals ready to go.

The two-time defending AFC champion Chiefs (9-4) have won six straight since a 3-4 start to the season. The Chargers and Justin Herbert are looking to usurp Kansas City with a win tonight which would put them in the lead of the AFC West division.

The good news is, I've narrowed down the best options for anytime touchdown scorers for you here on Thursday Night Football. I'm going with three Chiefs here and it's because I believe these are the best picks for the odds we are getting on these guys. The Chiefs are implied to score 27 points so here's to our picks being the guys who contribute! Let's get to the best anytime touchdown picks for Thursday night! Best of luck if you tail!

Even better than my picks is the OddscheckerUS website compares odds from every sportsbook for every NFL game. This includes odds for anytime touchdown scorers and we find where you can get the best price for your bet.

Chargers vs Chiefs Top Anytime TD Scorer Bets

Darrell Williams (+310)

When I saw this number at Caesars I was absolutely shocked. Williams to score is as low as +160 at some shops. Now I know Clyde Edwards Helaire is back and healthy but the Cheifs are still running out Williams nearly the same number of snaps. Darrel Williams has a total of just 19 touches in the three games since Edwards-Helaire has returned so I understand if you're pessimistic. The thing is since CEH has returned, Williams played the same number of snaps in Week 14, three fewer snaps in Week 13, and four more snaps in Week 11. The Chargers defense has allowed at least one running back touchdown in nine straight games! While I think CEH will be very busy, these odds on Williams we can't pass up.

Travis Kelce (+110)

It's now or never for Kelce this week. He's truly had bad numbers this season but I think that has more to do with the Chiefs offense over the last two months. The game plan they have implanted has really taken its toll on the tight end. The good news for Kelce is that the Chargers defense has allowed the second-most touchdowns to tight ends so far in 2021. Despite what appears to be a down season Kelce still ranks second among tight ends in receiving yards (875) and receptions (73). My only concern here is Kelce has just one end zone target in 2021. Since 2016, he hasn't received less than 8 in a season. Here's to Kelce finding the endzone for us.

Byron Pringle (+360)

I've been burned by Pringle the last couple of weeks but the numbers don't lie. He's out-snapped every other Chiefs wide receiver not named Tyreek Hill since Week 10. The odds here on Pringle are simply too good to pass on for a player who is on the field as often as Pringle is with Patrick Mahomes. The Chargers have allowed just six scores to wide receivers so far but I'm comfortable taking a stab at Pringle with a total set so high, let's hope this one doesn't disappoint.
