Anytime TD bets for Bears vs. Chargers
- Tyson Bagent Anytime TD (+600)
- DJ Moore Anytime TD (+200)
- Keenan Allen Anytime TD (+115)
Tyson Bagent Anytime TD (+600)
Running with the football may not be Tyson Bagent's biggest strength, but he already has a rushing touchdown in his appearance against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6 and then he rushed three times for 24 yards last week against the Raiders.
It's not uncommon for rookie quarterbacks to take off with their legs when they get close to the goalline. In the red zone, the field shrinks and young quarterbacks are a bit more cautious to throw the ball and a little bit more willing to try to take the ball in the end zone themselves. With that in mind, +600 are fantastic odds on him to score his second touchdown on the season.
DJ Moore Anytime TD (+200)
Don't forget about the Bears' receivers just because Justin Fields is out. In Bagent's first full game last week, DJ Moore hauled in eight receptions for 54 yards. He didn't score a touchdown, but he certainly saw enough throws to make him a good bet to score this week at +200.
Keenan Allen Anytime TD (+115)
If you are looking for a member of the Chargers to score, Keenan Allen is the obvious bets. Not only does he average 7.7 receptions per game, but he may be shouldering an even bigger work load on Sunday with Joshua Palmer listed as questionable. I'm surprised we're still able to get this bet at plus-money.
