NFL Week 18 Anytime Touchdown Picks
It’s the final week of the NFL season, so let’s end it on a high note by giving you two anytime touchdown winners.
It’s been an up-and-down season with these predictions but overall I’m still above .500, and most of my picks were of the plus variety so you should have made some cash on those.
Let’s finish strong.
The odds I’m using are courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook, which offers great promotions.

Colts RB Zack Moss (+135) vs. Houston Texans
After Jonathan Taylor’s season-ending injury in Week 15, Moss has carried the bulk of the load in the backfield. He’s averaged over 17 touches and 75 total yards in those games.
He hasn’t scored all season, but that changes Sunday against Houston.
Moss is a beast of a runner, he’ll get between 15-20 carries, and even though the Colts’ offense stinks, he’ll get the ball in the red zone – you gotta figure that happens at least once against the terrible Texans, correct? – and the third-year back out of Utah (and former Buffalo Bill) will bull his way in for his first touchdown of the season.
Jaguars WR Christian Kirk (+155) vs. Tennessee Titans
Kirk is one of Trevor Lawrence’s favorite targets and has been all season (78 receptions, 1,009 yards, and 7 TDs).
Tennessee’s pass defense ranks dead-last in the NFL this season in yards and 31st in passing touchdowns allowed (28). That bodes well for Kirk.
Most important, Kirk, as my colleague Frank Weber points out here, needs just two catches to earn a $500,000 bonus. He’ll get another $500K if he surpasses 91 yards receiving to reach 1,100 for the season.
That’s a possible cool mil on the line, and while touchdowns aren’t part of the bonuses, Lawrence is likely to look for Kirk often, deep downfield and also in the red zone. Kirk is going to get at least one of his bonuses (receptions), maybe both, and afterward Lawrence will enjoy an outrageously expensive dinner on his buddy’s dime.
