The Indianapolis Colts will try to get back into the win column against the struggling Pittsburgh Steelers on Saturday.
The Colts are coming off a disappointing road loss against the Bengals, where they only scored 14 points. Indianapolis hopes to get Zack Moss, Michael Pittman Jr., etc, into the red zone against a Steelers' defense that didn't look great against Pats QB Bailey Zappe.
I found two Colts anytime touchdown props and a Steelers prop that bettors should consider putting on their card for Saturday.

Best anytime touchdown scorer picks for Steelers vs. Colts
- Zack Moss (-155)
- Najee Harris (+120)
- Alec Pierce (+370)
Zack Moss anytime touchdown scorer (-155)
I usually stay away from anytime touchdown props, exceeding -130 odds or higher, but it’s hard to ignore Moss’ red zone rushing attempts. The 25-year-old running back recorded six red zone rushing attempts in last week’s loss against the Bengals. Before that game, Moss had eight red zone rushing attempts in Week 13 against the Titans.
Moss didn’t score a touchdown in either of those games, but the Colts are sticking with him in the red zone. The Steelers have only allowed eight rushing touchdowns to opposing RBs this season, but only two rushing touchdowns in their last five games. The odds are stacked against Moss, but he’s their best option in the backfield.
Najee Harris anytime touchdown scorer (+120)
Harris has scored one touchdown and received nine red zone rushing attempts in the last four games. The 25-year-old running back will try to snap his scoreless streak against the Colts, who have allowed 14 rushing touchdowns to RBs this season (second-highest in the NFL).
The Steelers’ offense hasn’t produced a lot of touchdowns in the red zone this season (12), but if Pittsburgh can get inside the 20-yard line, I like Harris's chances to score.
Alec Pierce anytime touchdown scorer (+370)
If you are looking for a long shot anytime touchdown prop, keep an eye out for Alec Pierce. The second-year receiver has seen 15 targets and scored a touchdown in the last three games. He’s also seen the same number of RZ targets (3) as Michael Pittman Jr. and Josh Downs within that window.
The Steelers’ defense doesn’t give up many touchdowns to opposing wide receivers this season (9), but they are ranked 31st in DVOA-WR3, per ftnfantasy.com.
