The Los Angeles Rams are the second game of a Monday Night Football doubleheader in Week 3, and it should be a great matchup in what is a Super Bowl 56 rematch. 

If you’re looking to bet on props in this game, taking a player to score a touchdown can be one of the most fun ways to get involved. 

I have three different plays for this game, including props for Kyren Williams and Puka Nacua.

Rams vs. Bengals best anytime touchdown scorer picks

  • Kyren Williams (-105)
  • Puka Nacua (+195)
  • Joe Mixon (-105)

Kyren Williams anytime touchdown scorer

The Rams running back has run aways with the job, leading to the team trading away Cam Akers. 

Williams has four scores through the first two weeks of the season, and he’s seen a massive workload (29 carries, 12 targets) in the process. 

I expect the Rams to go to Williams as much as possible, especially against a Bengals defense that allowed the Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns to run on them in the first two weeks of the season, making him a great bet to find the end zone for a third straight week. 

Puka Nacua anytime touchdown scorer

It’s only a matter of time before rookie sensation Puka Nacua finds the end zone for the Rams. 

The fifth-round pick has seen an absurd 35 targets through the first two games of the season, leading the NFL with 25 receptions. He’s turned those catches into 266 receiving yards, but he hasn’t been able to hit paydirt yet. 

That could change in Week 3. This is strictly a volume play, as we know that Nacua is going to have the ball in his hands plenty of times on Monday night. As long as he’s good to go (expected to play with an oblique injury), Nacua is a steal at nearly 2/1 odds. 

Joe Mixon anytime touchdown scorer

We can’t only bet on Rams to score in Week 3, so if you’re considering a Bengal, look no further than Joe Mixon. 

The Bengals running back hasn’t found the end zone yet this season, but he could be leaned on heavily this week with Joe Burrow (calf) banged up. 

Mixon was one of the top backs in the NFL in terms of touches inside the 10-yard line last season, so he should dominate goal-line work for the Bengals this season as well.

Odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.
