SNF Best Anytime Touchdown Scorer: 2 Top Props for Ravens vs Jaguars

Another action-packed weekend in the NFL awaits, and we’ll be capping Sunday of Week 15 off with an incredible showdown. The Baltimore Ravens, led by Lamar Jackson, are set to battle Trevor Lawrence and the Jacksonville Jaguars on primetime. I’m here with the best anytime touchdown bets for the contest.

The Ravens enter Week 15 with a 10-3 record and hold the top spot in the AFC. According to the latest NFL Vegas odds, the Baltimore Ravens (+550) jumped slightly ahead of the Kansas City Chiefs (+700) in Super Bowl odds. The Jaguars aren’t too far behind at (+2200), and a win on Sunday night could propel them right into the thick of the favorites. The Jaguars will be playing on Sunday Night Football for the first time in 14 seasons with their last appearance coming all the way back in 2008.

Lamar Jackson has this Ravens offense clicking. The former MVP currently has the third-best odds to take home the MVP award again, priced at (+450). Jackson is nearing his career highs in passing yards and completions. Back in his MVP season in 2019, he finished with 265 completions and 3,127 passing yards. With four games to play in 2023, he has 252 completions and 2,934 passing yards!


Here is a look at the latest NFL lines this week on the total for Sunday Night Football. The current odds have the total for this clash at 42½ points. Baltimore has ranked third in pace since the start of the second half of the season, and the Jaguars are a slow-and-throw team with the eighth-slowest pace and sixth-highest passing rate.

Scoring had been down throughout the first half of the season, but the under-trend seems to have kicked over the last couple of weeks. Hopefully, that is a sign of things to come for the final stretch of the regular season.

The NFL point spread has the Ravens as 3-point favorites. The Ravens have covered the spread in four straight games. The Jaguars have had some home woes this season with a 2-4 record playing in their home stadium. Baltimore has won seven of its last eight games and is on a path to the number one-seed in the AFC.

The Jaguars are 8-5 and currently lead the AFC South. They have struggled mightily in games where they faced off against some of the top defenses. They will be eager to get back in the win column after dropping their last two games against AFC North opponents. It will be tough, as the Ravens defense has allowed the second-fewest yards and points this season.

We have just four weeks left in the season, and the league has a laundry list of injuries to sift through. This game is no different. The most significant injury question coming into this matchup is the status of Jaguars offensive lineman Ezra Cleveland. The Ravens defense leads the NFL in sacks with 49 entering Week 15 so the Jaguars will need as much help upfront as possible.

As the conductor of the touchdown train, I’ve once again narrowed the best options for anytime touchdown scorers for you here on Sunday Night Football in Week 15. Let’s get to the best bets for the Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Baltimore Ravens.

Jaguars vs Ravens Best Anytime TD Scorer Bets

Lamar Jackson

The Jaguars defense started the season hot but has cooled to nuclear cooling station levels of cold. The Jaguars haven’t been able to stop anyone on the ground or in the air since the start of November. Jackson and the Ravens running game should be able to run on this defense that has the third-most missed tackles, the fifth-highest rushing touchdown rate, and the highest explosive run rate allowed since the start of November.

Jackson hasn’t rushed for a touchdown in six games, which is his longest drought since his injury-riddled 2021 season. The Jaguars have allowed multiple mobile quarterbacks to score against them this season, including Josh Allen, Anthony Richardson, C.J. Stroud, and Jake Browning. I expect Lamar to do it all on Sunday night, including finding the end zone.

Isaiah Likely

I was heavily leaning toward Zay Flowers here as he runs a route on nearly every passing down, but I like going a bit further down the odds board and taking the Ravens tight end. Jacksonville has given up a touchdown out of the slot in three of their last four games, which is significant because 84% of Likely’s targets have come from the slot. The second-year tight end is filling the massive shoes of Mark Andrews, who is out for the season with an ankle injury.


The Jaguars have allowed the third-most passing touchdowns and the highest passer rating in the NFL since Week 9. Without Andrews, Likely has played 76% of the offensive snaps in the first two games, and the Jaguars have allowed the second most yards per catch to opposing tight ends. We just watched David Njoku go for 91 yards and two touchdowns against the Jaguars last week. Jackson has a knack for looking toward his tight end in the red zone, and I think it’s likely that Likely will score in back-to-back games.

 

 

Questions Of The Day

Some factors to consider are whether a player will have scoring opportunities, what the coaching staff’s play calls look like in the red zone, and whether a player’s matchup is good.

Both defenses are more susceptible to the run, so you should consider backing the running backs on SNF.
