There should be plenty of scoring opportunities during the Thursday Night Football matchup between the Las Vegas Raiders and an injury-riddled Los Angeles Rams squad. Here's a look at our top Raiders-Rams touchdown prop picks for Week 14 based on the top odds.
There's a real chance that Baker Mayfield is under center at some point on Thursday for the Rams, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network. That possibility alone shows how much their offense has cratered. Matthew Stafford is out for the season, and backup John Wolford is questionable while dealing with neck soreness.
That should lead to quality field position and lots of scoring chances for a hot Raiders offense that can tee off on a 22nd-ranked Rams defense (23.3 points allowed per game) playing without cornerstone lineman Aaron Donald.
Here are our Week 14 NFL touchdown prop picks for the Thursday Night Football matchup between the Raiders and Rams (odds via Caesars Sportsbook and PointsBet; pick confidence is based on a 1-to-5-star scale).
Anytime Touchdown Scorer Pick
- Foster Moreau (+230 via Caesars)
Foster Moreau anytime TD (+230) ★★
Darren Waller has been out and will remain sidelined for at least one more week due to the short turnaround after the Raiders played on Sunday. Foster Moreau has been receiving opportunities in his absence. His yardage production has been modest at best, but Moreau has been efficient in the red zone, especially when in tight.
Moreau has been targeted three times inside the 10-yard line, scoring twice during the Raiders' past four games. The Rams have given up five touchdowns to tight ends, ranking in the lower third of the league.
Cam Akers is appealing, too, at +180 for a safer play, also through Caesars. The Rams will surely keep leaning on their rushing offense, just as they did in Week 13 when Akers scored twice.

Two or More Touchdowns Pick
- Davante Adams two-plus touchdowns (+475 via Caesars)
Davante Adams 2+ touchdowns (+475) ★★★
Adams is white-hot, and it's a laughable understatement to say he's the focal point of everything the Raiders' passing offense does, especially with Waller still out. He's fresh off a Week 13 game during which he was targeted 12 times, turning that into eight catches for 177 yards and two touchdowns. The next-closest Raiders receiver finished with 35 yards.
Incredibly, that was Adams' fourth multi-touchdown game in 2022, and his third over the Raiders' past five contests. He's magnetized to the ball once it leaves Derek Carr's hands. That very much includes the red zone, where Adams ranks fifth league-wide with 34% of the Raiders' red-zone targets.
He destroys single coverage, too, with eight of his 12 touchdown catches coming against that defense, according to PFF.
First TD Scorer Pick
- Van Jefferson first TD scorer (+1700 via PointsBet)
Van Jefferson first TD scorer (+1700) ★★
In theory at least, someone needs to catch passes for the Rams. After missing a significant portion of the season due to injury, Jefferson has been thrust into a greater role with Cooper Kupp and Allen Robinson out. That hasn't amounted to much yardage yet, with the wideout accumulating only 136 receiving yards over his past four games.
However, he's turned three red-zone targets into two scores, both of which have come over the last four weeks.
The Rams' offense may be in shambles and possibly dealing with a new quarterback. But defending the pass is the Raiders' weakness regardless of who's under center, as Las Vegas ranks 30th while giving up 258.1 passing yards per game.
Jefferson is an appealing long-shot play. But make sure you head to either FanDuel or PointsBet for a price of +1700. That's significantly better than the +1100 at Caesars Sportsbook.
