The Pittsburgh Steelers will try to get back into the win column without starting QB Kenny Pickett as they play the New England Patriots on Thursday Night Football. The oddsmakers don't think there will be a lot of points scored (O/U 30), as the starting QBs for this game are Mitchell Trubisky and Bailey Zappe.

I found two Steelers anytime touchdown props and a Patriots anytime touchdown prop that could net bettors a nice payday.

Best anytime touchdown scorer picks for Steelers vs. Patriots

  • Jaylen Warren (+130)
  • Ezekiel Elliott (+205)
  • George Pickens (+320)

Jaylen Warren anytime touchdown scorer (+130)

With Najee Harris dealing with an unexpected knee injury, we could see a heavier workload for Jaylen Warren. The 25-year-old running back has run the ball well over the last four games, with 338 yards and two touchdowns on 46 carries. Warren has also received seven red zone rushing attempts over that stretch.

This season, the Patriots’ defense has only allowed nine total touchdowns to opposing running backs. However, New England hasn’t given up a touchdown to a running back in their last two touchdowns. Even though we have a low total for this primetime contest, Warren could be the x-factor in the red zone.

Ezekiel Elliott anytime touchdown scorer (+205)

The veteran running back hasn’t scored a touchdown in five straight games, but he’ll look to change that on Thursday. This season, Pittsburgh’s defense has given up 10 touchdowns to opposing running backs.

Last week, Cardinals RB James Conner scored two touchdowns against the Steelers, so there’s some hope for Elliott, who will get the lion's share of carries for New England. Elliott had 14 red zone rushing attempts this season – second behind Stevenson (19). If the Patriots score a touchdown, it will likely be on the ground, as Bailey Zappe did not look great under center last week.

George Pickens anytime touchdown scorer (+320)

Pickens is coming off one of his better games in recent weeks against Arizona, which could be a sign of positive things to come. The second-year wide receiver produced four receptions (five targets) for 86 yards. Pickens is due to score a touchdown, as he hasn’t found the end zone in five consecutive games.

Pickens will be facing a Patriots’ defense that has allowed 11 touchdowns to wide receivers this season, including three in their last five games. The young receiver could be covered by Patriots CB J.C. Jackson, who held his own last week against the Chargers. However, he’s still allowed three touchdowns since returning to New England.
