The Philadelphia Eagles are back in the Super Bowl and while they have a few familiar faces from Super Bowl 52, five years ago, I don’t think we can find odds for a Nick Foles touchdown. Instead, let’s try to pick who will be the next hero in Philadelphia and place a few anytime touchdown bets.
The Chiefs have one of the most vulnerable red zone defenses in the NFL, so Philly will have a few chances to reach the end zone. Here are my three favorite anytime touchdown picks for the Eagles in Super Bowl 57.
Chiefs vs. Eagles anytime touchdown scorer picks
- Jalen Hurts +100
- Dallas Goedert +175
- Boston Scott +550
Jalen Hurts +100
Hurts has been open about the fact that he’s not 100% and hasn’t been for a while. Even with his shoulder injury, he’s still the Eagles’ No. 1 option on the goalline. They’ve essentially hacked short yardage situations with their new quarterback sneak, and I’d be surprised if that play doesn’t make an appearance in the Super Bowl.
Dallas Goedert +175
Goedert has caught 10 of his 11 postseason targets for 81 yards and a touchdown. He’s definitely a focal point of the Philly offense and he feels like a better value than AJ Brown or Devonta Smith in terms of receiving options to reach the end zone. Willie Gay Jr. and Lajarius Sneed are Kansas City’s top options to cover tight ends and both are on the injury report heading into the big game.
Boston Scott +550
When you think of a 5-foot-6 running back you don’t really think goalline back, but that’s what Boston Scott is becoming for Philadelphia. He has a touchdown in both of their playoff games and has gotten six carries in both games. I’m not sure if that’s because both games were a blowout but for the value he’s worth a look at +550.
