The New Orleans Saints hope to move to 2-1 this weekend but they'll have a desperate Carolina Panthers team to get past. The Panthers are 0-2 and have not looked good through two weeks of action. The Saints haven't exactly looked great either but they have a win in spite of that.
In the first game of the season, Taysom Hill showed that he can still be the explosive offensive weapon that everyone remembers him being. He broke off a 50+ run to set the Saints up in the red zone and then not long after, scored on a running touchdown. Betting on Hill to score is risky based on what his role will be each week but as we've seen, sometimes it's absolutely worth the risk.
Taysom Hill Anytime Scorer (+275)
WynnBET has given Hill +275 odds to find the end zone at any time and it's hard not to like those odds. The offensive weapon was a big part of the team's offense in Week 1, at least in the first half, with four rushes for 81 yards and the aforementioned touchdown.
Hill wasn't a big part of the offense in Week 2, carrying the ball just three times for 14 yards. It's a small sample size right now but against a Panthers run defense that has surrendered the fourth-most rushing yards per ESPN, I like the odds of Hill getting into the end zone at some time during this game. It doesn't even have to be as a runner. If Hill is the receiver on a touchdown, he'll also get the credit, so this increases the likelihood that he scores.
Betting $100 on Taysom Hill to score this week could earn you $275. Is it worth the risk? You can be the judge of that.
