TNF Prop Odds: Cowboys vs Titans
- Ezekiel Elliot anytime touchdown scorer +105
- Derrick Henry anytime touchdown scorer +110
- CeeDee Lamb anytime touchdown scorer +120
- Dak Prescott Passing Touchdowns. O/U 1½
- Dak Prescott Passing Yards, O/U 240.50
Ezekiel Elliot Anytime Touchdown Scorer +105
Dallas’ star running back Ezekiel Elliot is on an eight-game scoring run, posting at least a touchdown in every single game he’s played since Oct. 16 versus the Philadelphia Eagles. He rushed for 10 scores, doubling down twice versus the Lions (Week 7) and Vikings (Week 11).
It’s somewhat surprising to see Elliot not priced in minus money to score an anytime touchdown here. But that fact makes it all the more tempting to back the veteran to get one over the Titans’ top rushing defense.
- Pick: Elliot to score anytime touchdown at +105
Derrick Henry Anytime Touchdown Scorer +110
Let’s face it, with rookie quarterback Malik Willis still wearing his training wheels, Tennessee’s likeliest source of points is Derrick Henry. The running back is Tennessee’s best offensive weapon, one they’ll want to tap into. Plus, at +110, he’s worth the tickle for your NFL picks.
“STOP IT. You don’t have to outsmart people. Give Derrick Henry the football!”

Of course, Dallas will be alert to the running back’s threat. The only problem – teeny, weeny problem – is that they rank 21st against the run. It’s not disastrous, but it’s not the best aspect of Dan Quinn’s otherwise sound defenses. So, it wouldn’t be shocking to see Henry punch his way through.
- Pick: Henry to score anytime touchdown, +110
CeeDee Lamb Anytime Touchdown Scorer +120
Dallas wideout CeeDee Lamb is coming off a multiple touchdown scoring performance against the Philadelphia Eagles, connecting with Dak Prescott twice to help lift his side to the all-important 40-34 win.
Lamb’s Christmas Eve performance included 10 carries for 120 yards and two TDs. It marked his second straight game with 100-plus receiving yards and his fourth of the season surpassing the centenary mark. In addition, Lamb has eight touchdowns to his credit this season.

Dak Prescott is in an enviable position, embarrassed for choice on a deep O-line stacked with weapons, of which Lamb is just one of many options. This means he will not always be targeted or in a position to score. Nevertheless, his increased production over the last few games is promising. So much so that it could spill over on a short week and lead to him scoring at least once.
- Pick: CeeDee Lamb to score anytime touchdown, +120
Dak Prescott Passing Touchdowns O/U 1½
When Prescott is on, he’s white-hot. Last Saturday’s performance against the Eagles serves as a prime example of what the elite quarterback can do when the going gets tough. He passed for 347 yards and three touchdowns with one interception.

Prescott has started 10 games after missing five with a thumb injury. In those starts, he’s tossed for 2,450 yards, 20 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions. By the stats, he’s averaging two touchdowns per game.
In recent weeks, that tally has gone up as he’s thrown three touchdowns in three of the last four games. He scored two or more touchdowns in seven of his nine straight starts. Bet the over and don’t overthink this prop bet.
- Pick: Dak Prescott Passing Touchdowns Over 1½ (-135)
Dak Prescott Passing Yards, O/U 240½
As mentioned above, the Cowboys quarterback has passed for 2,450 yards over 10 games, which yields 245.0 passing yards on average per game. Clearly, the total for this prop bet falls under his current seasonal average.
Prescott’s last three games feature passing numbers of 284, 256, and 347. Indeed, seven of his ten games feature passing numbers of 250-plus. Only three games fell under 250, skewing his overall stats.
Once again, this isn’t one to overthink. Plus, with the Titans passing defense ranking 31st in the league, allowing an average of 279.6 passing yards per game, Prescott should smash through the total currently trading.
- Pick: Dak Prescott Passing Yards Over 240½ (-135)
