Anytime TD Bets for Colts vs. Panthers

  • Jonathan Taylor Anytime TD (+100)
  • Josh Downs Anytime TD (+188)
  • Zack Moss Anytime TD (+188)

Jonathan Taylor Anytime TD (+100)

The Colts' running backs are going to feast when they take on the Panthers on Sunday. Carolina has arguably the worst run defense in the NFL, ranking 32nd in opponent EPA per rush and 31st in opponent rush success rate.

Meanwhile, Jonathan Taylor has seen a steady increase in workload since returning from injury. In his four starts, he has played 15% of snaps, 42%, 50%, and then finally 61% of snaps last week against the Saints. All of this points toward him finding the end zone on Sunday against the Panthers.

Josh Downs Anytime TD (+188)

Josh Downs has been a big part of the Colts' offense, especially of late. He's coming off a game where he hauled in 7-of-9 targets for 72 yards and has consistently been one of Gardner Minshew's favorite targets. If the Colts go to the air in this game, there's a solid chance Josh Downs finds the end zone.

Zack Moss Anytime TD (+188)

While Jonathan Taylor has been increasing his work load in recent weeks, Zack Moss is still getting some work. He ran the ball 11 times for 66 yards against the Saints last week, and he has already recorded seven total touchdowns this season.

It's also worth noting the Panthers are dead last in opponent rushing touchdowns per game this season, giving up an average of 2.0 per contest. I'd be shocked if neither Taylor or Moss find the end zone on Sunday.
