Looking for more action on today’s playoff game between the Houston Texans and Baltimore Ravens? Our team of betting experts have you covered with their best touchdown scorer bets for Texans vs. Ravens.

Texans vs. Ravens Best Touchdown Scorer Bets

Lamar Jackson (+120 at DraftKings)

Katz: The Ravens have very clearly made it a point to not put Lamar Jackson in too much danger this season. Near the goal line, they’ve opted to feed Gus Edwards rather than put the ball in Jackson’s hands.

It’s playoff time. Much like the Buffalo Bills unleashing Josh Allen, I expect the Ravens to unleash Jackson. They have three games to win — there’s no more being concerned with protecting the lead MVP candidate for the stretch run.

We’ve seen Jackson be a goal line force before. As heavy favorites, the Ravens should have no trouble moving the ball on the Texans, especially through the air. We just need Baltimore to go down inside the five and run a couple of read options. My guess is Jackson keeps one and waltzes in for an easy score.

Gus Edwards (+130 at ESPN BET)

Rolfe: Gus Edwards to find the end zone at plus odds has become a line I will take and not really look back from at this stage. Edwards has a total of 13 touchdowns and has scored in eight of his past 11 games. At this point, let’s not even second-guess it.

Last week, the Texans allowed Kareem Hunt to score twice, with the first touchdown being what I would call a Gus Bus special from one-yard out. The Ravens lean on Edwards heavily near the goal line, and I don’t see that changing this week, even with the arrival of Dalvin Cook in Baltimore.

Nico Collins (+165 at DraftKings)

Blewis: With Tank Dell injured, Nico Collins has emerged as C.J. Stroud’s favorite weapon.

For the season, Collins led all Texans pass catchers in red zone target share, and he has scored a touchdown in three of his last four games. In fact, since Dell has been out of the lineup, Collins has scored four out of six games.

Collins will be going against a Ravens team that will be without its top cornerback in Marlon Humphrey, and considering the expected negative game script for the Texans, there should be plenty of opportunities for Collins to score.

Bearman: I absolutely love Nico Collins. It took C.J. Stroud and a new offense to get him going, but the kid has taken off. He now has touchdowns in six of his last nine games and at least six targets in eight of those games. Stroud loves him, and you are still getting plus money for the best playmaker on the team.

Odell Beckham Jr. (+260 at FanDuel)

Soppe: Chasing volume and opportunity is the path I take for most prop bets, but when we are talking about anytime touchdown scorers, I value role over everything.

Percent of targets taking place in the end zone:

  • Odell Beckham Jr.: 15.6%
  • Mark Andrews: 9.8%
  • Zay Jones: 3.7%
  • Isaiah Likely: 2.5%

Percent of routes that end in an end zone target:

  • Odell Beckham Jr.: 3.4%
  • Mark Andrews: 2.2%
  • Zay Jones: 0.8%
  • Isaiah Likely: 0.4%

The route count has been underwhelming over the past month-plus for the veteran receiver, but does that matter for this market? We know Beckham is capable of the splash play (16.1 yards per catch this season), and when you combine that with his usage inside the 20-yard line, he is a reasonable roll of the dice at this price tag with two weeks to scheme to his strengths.
