Best Anytime TD Bets for Commanders vs. Cowboys

  • Brian Robinson Anytime TD (+170)
  • Curtis Samuel Anytime TD (+400)
  • Sam Howell Anytime TD (+700)

Brian Robinson Anytime TD (+170)

If the Commanders have any hope of beating the Cowboys, they need to run the football early and often in this game. The weakness of the Cowboys' defense is their ability to stop the run, ranking 16th in opponent yards per play and 31st in opponent rush success rate.

Brian Robinson is coming off a strong performance against the Giants, rushing for 73 yards on 17 carries. I think it's about time he returns to the end zone on Thursday.

Curtis Samuel Anytime TD (+400)

It's time to buy low on Curtis Samuel after a few down weeks, having not scored against the Falcons back in Week 6. The best chance the Commanders have to attack the Cowboys through the air is instead of targeting their top guys, they should take advantage of their depth at the wideout position and try to get matchup advantages against the No. 3 or No. 4 DB of the Cowboys.

At +400, Samuel has plenty of value as a darkhorse candidate to find the end zone on Thursday.

Sam Howell Anytime TD (+700)

Sam Howell is good to take off with his legs a few times a game and he even scored a rushing touchdown last week against the Giants. So, why are his odds as steep as +700 to find the end zone on Thursday? He's going to do whatever it takes to keep pace with the Cowboys, and that includes taking off to run when the Commanders get close to the goalline.

Odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.
