As we head into Week 14 of the NFL season, several notable players are dealing with injuries. Here are some of the best value anytime touchdown bets, picks, and prop bets to consider for Sunday’s slate of games.
Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence suffered a high ankle sprain during the fourth quarter 34-31 loss against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 13. Prior to his injury, Lawrence threw for 258 yards, two touchdowns and rushed for another touchdown. Lawrence left the stadium using crutches and wearing a walking boot, and his availability for the upcoming game against the Cleveland Browns is uncertain.
Meanwhile, the New Orleans Saints' quarterback, Derek Carr, is also questionable for Week 14 against the Carolina Panthers. Carr suffered a hit that caused him to enter concussion protocol and a possible rib injury. Before exiting the game, Carr had completed 17 of 22 pass attempts for 226 yards for a touchdown and an interception. If Carr is unable to play against the Panthers, the Saints will rely on Jameis Winston and Taysom Hill to lead the team in Week 14.
Best anytime TD bets for Sunday's Week 14 games:
Philadelphia Eagles Quarterback Jalen Hurts (-140)
In a 42-19 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 13, Jalen Hurts recorded 20 yards and a rushing touchdown, bringing his total to six touchdowns on the ground in the last four games. Hurts shows every week that he is a versatile quarterback who can easily find the endzone when given the chance.
Denver Broncos Wide Receiver Courtland Sutton (+125)
In the Broncos' 22-17 loss to the Texans, Courtland Sutton caught two of seven pass attempts for 77 yards and one touchdown. Sutton has had a good run of form, scoring in six out of the last seven games. The Broncos will play the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 14, which have allowed the second-highest receiving yards with 265 yards, giving Sutton a chance to score for the Broncos.
Kansas City Chiefs Quarterback Patrick Mahomes (+340)
Patrick Mahomes has rushed the ball 57 times for 331 yards in the current NFL season. However, he has not yet scored a touchdown for the Chiefs and in Week 14, Mahomes and the Chiefs will be playing against the Buffalo Bills at Arrowhead. A victory is crucial for the Chiefs and with running backs Isiah Pacheco and Jerick McKinnon both questionable for Sunday's game, Mahomes will likely take matters into his own hands to put Kansas City in a favorable position.
Cleveland Brown Running Back Kareem Hunt (+235)
Kareem Hunt has been an essential player for the Browns in their running game this season. He has recorded an average of 33.4 yards per game and scored six touchdowns so far. Hunt is a dependable player on the field and a vital factor for the Browns to score points in Week 14 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
San Francisco 49ers Running Back Christian McCaffrey (-380)
Christian McCaffrey has rushed for over 80 yards and scored at least one touchdown in seven out of the past twelve games. McCaffrey’s contribution has been significant to the 49ers' running game, which currently ranks fifth in the NFL for rushing offense. In Week 14, the 49ers will face the Seahawks, who have allowed an average of 119 yards per game. This gives McCaffrey an opportunity to score.
Dallas Cowboys Wide Receiver CeeDee Lamb (-150)
In Week 14, CeeDee Lamb and the Dallas Cowboys will face a tough challenge against the Philadelphia Eagles. However, Lamb will undoubtedly play a crucial role if the Cowboys hope to emerge victorious. So far this season, Lamb has averaged 80 yards per game and has scored in six out of twelve games. With the Cowboys ranked 11th in rushing yards per game, there should be plenty of opportunities for Lamb to make an impact and help the team to score.
