Best Anytime TD Scorer Prop Bets for Giants-Cowboys
The second Thanksgiving game on Thursday will feature an NFC East battle between two 7-3 teams. The Cowboys will host the Giants in a huge divisional battle as both teams try to catch the Eagles for the top spot in the division. This is the second meeting between the teams as the Cowboys won the first matchup with Cooper Rush under center.
This game should have more scoring opportunities as Dak Prescott is back and playing well for the Cowboys. With that in mind, here are our favorite anytime touchdown scorer prop bets for NFL betting on Thursday.
Bookies.com handicapper and host of the Cowboys podcast "LockOnCowboys" Marcus Mosher gives his favorite anytime TD scorer prop bets on sports betting apps going into this Week 12 matchup.
Best Anytime TD Prop Bets for Giants vs. Cowboys
Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliot
Ezekiel Elliott loves playing the Giants. In 11 career games, he's scored ten touchdowns and has totaled 1,013 yards. He is a fantastic bet to get into the end zone here in Week 12 as the Cowboys are using him even more near the goal line.
Elliott has played just eight games this season but has already scored six touchdowns. Look for him to see multiple carries inside the five-yard line on Thursday.
Giants RB Saquon Barkley
Barkley hasn’t been a huge touchdown scorer this season (6), but he gets enough touches per game that it’s worth betting on him here at this number. He's averaging over 24 touches per game as he is basically the entire offense for the Giants at this point.
Against one of the league's worst run defenses, this should be a big Barkley performance on a primetime stage. It is worth mentioning that he did get into the end zone in his last game against the Cowboys and averaged 5.8 yards per carry. Look for him to do something similar again on Thursday afternoon.
Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb
Lamb torched the Giants for 87 yards and a touchdown in the first meeting between these two teams. He could have had an even bigger day if he didn't drop a 50-yard walk-in touchdown. The Giants will be without No. 1 cornerback Adoree Jackson and they don't have a lot of depth in the secondary. Plus, Lamb will now have Dak Prescott throwing him the ball. So expect Lamb to get into the end zone at least once on Thursday.
Giants QB Daniel Jones
Jones has been one of the more effective running quarterbacks this season as he's already set a career-high in rushing yards (437). He's also run for four touchdowns, which is a career-high. Against one of the NFL's worst run defenses, look for the Giants to run early and often in this game. Jones totaled 79 rushing yards in their previous meeting and gashed the Cowboys. Look for him to get several red zone carries in this matchup.
Cowboys WR KaVontae Turpin
If you are searching for a fun long-shot bet, consider taking KaVontae Turpin for the Dallas Cowboys. He's only played 20 offensive snaps over the last four weeks, but it's his ability in the return game that gets you excited. Turpin currently leads the NFL in yards per punt return (12.4) and is a dynamic kick returner.
He’s been close to scoring a touchdown on a few returns this season and this feels like a game where he could finally take one to the house. It’s not a bad idea to sprinkle a few dollars on this bet to make all of his returns just a little bit more exciting on Thanksgiving.
