Ezekiel Elliott, CeeDee Lamb and Jonathan Taylor have the most popular NFL player prop bets for Sunday Night Football’s Colts vs. Cowboys.
These props are all in the anytime TD market — and somehow, Tony Pollard isn’t among the public’s most popular picks.
Yet still, it’s none of those four aforementioned players who have the most valuable anytime TD props for Sunday Night Football.
As for Elliott, Lamb and Taylor’s anytime TD lines, our premier data analytics expert Nick Giffen assessed the value for each of those picks.

Colts vs. Cowboys Most Popular NFL Player Prop Bets
- Ezekiel Elliott to score an anytime TD (-120)
- CeeDee Lamb to score an anytime TD (+120)
- Jonathan Taylor to score an anytime TD (-125)
*Odds and data are according to PointsBet as of Sunday afternoon.
Out of these three picks, Ezekiel Elliott’s anytime TD prop provides the most value.
His fair value line is at +110, according to Giffen. FanDuel provides a line of +120, which gives this wager roughly 2.2% betting edge.
CeeDee Lamb’s anytime TD prop is reasonable, too.
Lamb’s fair value line is at +123, according to Giffen. At +120 with PointsBet, you’re losing out on 0.6% of value, but it’s a reasonable enough difference if you’re bullish on Lamb’s prospects tonight.
The other line is particularly bad.
And that’s not a PointsBet problem — it’s a marketplace problem. While Taylor is anywhere from -145 to -110 to score a touchdown tonight, his fair value is +141, according to Giffen’s betting algorithms.
At the line’s worst, you’re losing out on 17% of betting value. In an already ultra-efficient market, you’re losing 17 cents for every dollar wagered immediately after pressing “place bet.”
