To increase your chances of winning, it's important to look out for the best odds available, as well as checking out our recommended bets below.

NFL Touchdown Best Bets and Round Robin Parlay - Week 16, 2023

Our model is constantly working to discover edges in all of the major NFL props markets, including first and anytime touchdown scorers!

For our recommended Week 16 TD scorer bets, see the five plays below. We recommend playing these in a Round Robin Parlay, betting the x3, x4 and full five-leg combos. A $5 bet on the five-leg parlay alone would pay out  $3,962.16 if all five hit, with the lowest possible x3 combo coming in at +3770 odds.

Michael Pittman Anytime TD Scorer (+195)

  • Odds: +195 via FanDuel
  • Probability: 49.7%
  • Edge: 15.8%
  • Game: Colts vs. Falcons (1:00PM ET)

The highest edge for a TD prop this weekend is Michael Pittman to score when the Colts take on the Falcons in Atlanta. Pittman took a hard hit in Week 15 but has cleared concussion protocol and is expected to play. His 49.7% probability identified by our model reveals a substantial edge of 15.8% against his +195 on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Garrett Wilson Anytime TD Scorer (+220)

Our model has identified another strong TD edge of the weekend in Jets WR Garrett Wilson to score a touchdown against the Washington Commanders' bottom-tier passing defense that allows the most yards and touchdowns through the air. DimersBOT has found an edge of 14.3% against these +220 odds on FanDuel. 

Nico Collins Anytime TD Scorer (+310)

  • Odds: +310 via FanDuel
  • Probability: 36.5%
  • Edge: 121%
  • Game: Browns vs. Texans (1:00PM ET)

The next touchdown prop our model favors this weekend is for Texans WR Nico Collins to score. Collins exited his last game in Week 14 early and is questionable for Sunday, but he has said that he expects to play. Collins has been a go-to threat for the Texans this year and while he's expected to get targets from backup Case Keenum, DimersBOT finds a 26.5% probability of him finding the endzone, giving us a 12.1% edge in his odds of +310 on FanDuel.

Kyler Murray Anytime TD Scorer (+310)

Pivoting to the later afternoon slate, DimerBOT has found a touchdown prop worth betting in the Cardinals vs. Bears matchup. Quarterback Kyler Murray scored in three straight games after returning from injury, but not in his last two. He gets a 27.2% touchdown probability from our model, identifying a small edge of 2.8% in his +310 odds on FanDuel. 

Tyjae Spears Anytime TD Scorer (+400)

The final touchdown prop our model has identified is a longer odds play but has some solid value. The bet is on Titans RB2 Tyjae Spears to score an anytime touchdown against the Seahawks. Spears has seen a snap share rivaling or besting Derrick Henry in recent weeks and will face a Seattle defense allowing the second-most rushing touchdowns per game this season. DimersBOT calculates a 28.4% probability with a solid 8.4% edge against his odds on DraftKings Sportsbook.

What Is an Edge in Betting?

The edge at Dimers is when we think the probability of an event occurring is more likely than the best NFL odds available. Essentially, it means that Dimers believes a bet has a better chance of winning than the sportsbooks do. That's why the higher the edge, the better.

Although it does not guarantee a win, taking picks with a higher betting edge can increase your chances of being profitable in the long run. This is an essential aspect of a successful sports betting strategy.
