Anytime TD bets for Jaguars vs. Colts
- Anthony Richardson Anytime TD +150
- Michael Pittman Anytime TD +255
- Christian Kirk Anytime TD +165
Anthony Richardson Anytime TD +150
Anthony Richardson will make his first NFL start on Sunday and I wouldn't be surprised if he takes off with his legs more than once. In his last year at Florida, he rushed 103 times for 654 while finding the end zone nine times.
Some times, rookie QBs will take off running more often than they need to as they try to adjust to the speed of the passing game. As a result, I expect him to run in for a touchdown if they get close to the goalline on Sunday.
Michael Pittman Anytime TD +255
People forget just how good Michael Pittman is. Sure, he only recorded 925 yards last season, but he still hauled in 99 receptions and has a combined 10 touchdowns over the past two seasons.
He's going to be Richardson's favorite weapon this season, so if the rookie QB throws for a touchdown in Week 1, I expect it to be to Pittman.
Christian Kirk Anytime TD +165
Everyone is talking about Calvin Ridley ahead of the Jaguars season, but we shouldn't forget about Christian Kirk, who hauled in 84 catches for 1,108 yards and eight touchdowns last season.
We can't only bet on Colts players to score on Sunday. We have to toss a Jags player in the mix as well. So, if you're going to do that, I'd recommend Kirk at +165 odds.
Odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.
