The Philadelphia Eagles will try to take the two-game season series from the Washington Commanders on Sunday at FedEx Field. Anytime these division rivals play each other, you should expect a wild game, as we saw in Week 4.
I found a couple of Eagles players with longshot odds to score touchdowns on Sunday, along with a Commanders player who is due to score for the first time in a long time.
Below, I’ll lay out my three favorite anytime scorer picks for Eagles-Commanders, using odds from Caesars Sportsbook.
Best anytime touchdown scorer picks for Eagles vs. Commanders
- DeVonta Smith (+250)
- Dallas Goedert (+310)
- Terry McLaurin (+240)
DeVonta Smith anytime touchdown scorer (+250)
DeVonta Smith has fallen under the radar recently with A.J. Brown and Dallas Goedert emerging in the passing game. However, Smith could be due for a breakout game against the Commanders.
When these two teams played in Week 4, the former Alabama wide receiver recorded seven receptions (nine targets) for 78 yards. Smith only has two targets in the red zone this season, which is why his odds of scoring are +250.
But the Commanders have allowed nine touchdowns to wide receivers (tied for most in the NFL with the Eagles) this season. If Smith is matched up with Commanders CB Kendall Fuller on Sunday, I like his chances to score, as Fuller has allowed five touchdowns.
Dallas Goedert anytime touchdown scorer (+310)
Goedert is coming off an outstanding performance against the Dolphins last week, recording five receptions (five targets) for 77 yards and a touchdown.
The veteran tight end has scored a touchdown in two out of his last three games and will face a Commanders’ defense that has allowed four touchdowns to TEs, including one to Darren Waller last week.
Washington held Goedert in check in Week 4 for two receptions for 25 yards, but I don’t see the same scenario playing out on Sunday.
Terry McLaurin anytime touchdown scorer (+240)
If the Commanders’ offensive line can protect Sam Howell on Sunday, McLaurin should score a touchdown. The former Ohio State standout hasn’t scored a touchdown since Week 2 against the Denver Broncos, which means he’s due.
The 28-year-old wideout only has four red zone targets this season, many of which happened in last week’s game against the Giants.
The Eagles’ defense has allowed their share of TDs to WRs (9) this season. If you are looking for another stat to back McLaurin on Sunday — he has scored three touchdowns in his career against Philadelphia.
