2022 NFL Receiving Touchdowns Odds


Updated: Oct 3, 2022

Among all NFL wide receivers last year, Cooper Kupp was the very best.

The Los Angeles Rams’ star pass-catcher had at least 90+ yards receiving in 16 of the Rams’ 17 regular-season games and led the league with 16 receiving touchdowns.

Kupp was also great in the playoffs, capping off a fantastic season by catching the winning touchdown in the Super Bowl with just over a minute left.

This year, NFL fans can expect the combination of Matthew Stafford and Cooper Kupp to put a lot of points on the scoreboard once again.

Whether they will connect enough times for Kupp to lead the league in receiving touchdowns for a second consecutive year is for NFL Futures bettors to decide.

How Is The Winner Decided?

The player who catches the most TDs will be the winner. It is as simple as that.

The fun thing about this is you don’t only have wide receivers. Tight ends and even running backs can get into the party.

TE Jimmy Graham was the last non-WR to win the award, back in 2013. As for records, the mythical Jerry Rice got 22 in 1987.

The record stood for 20 years until another all-time great, Randy Moss, broke it in 2007, when he caught 23. Moss’ number still commands the record to this day.

Additionally, these two are the only players to get 20+ catching TDs.

2022 NFL Receiving Touchdowns Odds

Receiving TDs Betting Odds Reports

As discussed, 2021 belonged to Cooper Kupp and the Los Angeles Rams.

However, Kupp is one of many great receivers in the NFL and will have a lot of competition when it comes to leading the league in receiving touchdowns this year.

The Favorites

Cooper Kupp – In 2022, Cooper Kupp was the best pass receiver in the NFL, and that isn’t up for debate. Not only did Kupp lead the league in touchdown receptions, but he also had 145 catches for 1,947 yards.

Kupp capped off his brilliant season with a game-winning touchdown in the Super Bowl, as Los Angeles held off the Cincinnati Bengals 23-20.

Terrell Owens was the last player to repeat as the NFL touchdown receptions leader in 2001 and 2002.

Davante Adams – It was only two seasons ago when it was Davante Adams who led the NFL in receiving touchdowns, and Adams was the odds favorite to repeat last year before Kupp had his breakout in 2021.

Adams started last year with only three receiving touchdowns in his first nine games but turned it on late with eight TD receptions in his final seven games. Of course, all those happened with Aaron Rodgers throwing him the ball.

Now that Adams has landed in Las Vegas and will be playing for Derek Carr and the Raiders, bettors will have to decide if that will hurt or help his TD receiving total.

Ja’Marr Chase – In the 2021 NFL draft, three wide receivers were selected within the first ten picks. Ja’Marr Chase was one of those receivers after being drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals 5th overall.

It didn’t take Chase very long to turn heads in the NFL. In his rookie season, the former LSU Tiger had almost 1,500 yards receiving and over 80 receptions.

In Week 17 against the Chiefs, Chase had over 200 yards receiving, and three TD passes. Clearly, he was getting better as the season progressed, which could mean bad news for NFL defenses this year.

The Contenders

Mike Evans – Mike Evans was the second wide receiver selected in the 2014 draft, behind Sammy Watkins and ahead of Odell Beckham Jr, who was taken five picks after him. In that same season, Davante Adams was taken 53rd overall.

Of all those big-name receivers drafted that year, Evans has the most career receiving touchdown receptions with 75.

Adams is close behind with 73. This year, Evans will once again have the luxury of Tom Brady as his quarterback, which means he will definitely be finding his way into the endzone with the ball in his hands again in 2022.

Justin Jefferson – In the 2020 NFL draft, LSU Tiger star QB Joe Burrow was the first overall selection. 21 picks later, the Minnesota Vikings selected Burrow’s teammate from Louisianna, Justin Jefferson.

Jefferson was the fourth receiver taken that year, behind Henry Ruggs, Jerry Jeudy, and CeeDee Lamb. Lamb and Jefferson have both already made it to a Pro Bowl, despite having only played two seasons in the league.

In his rookie season, the Vikings WR had seven TD catches and, last year, bumped that total up to 10.

Jefferson has lived up to expectations and then some in his first two seasons, and most expect his TD total to climb again this year.

Travis Kelce – Travis Kelce was drafted with the 63rd pick in the 2013 draft. Of all the players selected that year, the Chiefs tight end trails only DeAndre Hopkins in total receiving yards and touchdowns.

In 2021, Kelce once again recorded more than 1,000 yards through the air, the fifth straight season he has accomplished that. This past offseason, Kansas City lost star wideout of Tyreek Hill. With Hill gone, some expect Patrick Mahomes to be even more dependent on his Pro Bowl tight ends, and Kelce could see even more targets this year.

2021 NFL Receiving Touchdowns Leaders:

Last year provided a few surprises for NFL fans regarding touchdown reception leaders. Not many expected Ja’Marr Chase would have such a significant impact in his first season.

The Minnesota Vikings had two receivers each haul in double-digit TD passes. DK Metcalf didn’t get the targets or receiving yards many expected but still had 12 touchdown passes.

With Davante Adams no longer in Green Bay, who will Aaron Rodgers target this year, and will there be a new Packers receiver on the 2022 touchdown receptions leaders list?

NFL Receiving Touchdowns Leaders: Last 10 Years

2021 was the first time the NFL switched to a 17-game regular-season schedule, and Cooper Kupp used those 17 games to haul in 16 TD passes.

Only Kupp, Davante Adams, and Dez Bryant have managed to hit 16 or more TD receptions in the last ten years.

NFL Most Receiving Touchdowns Single Season

When it comes to the most receiving touchdowns in a single season, our list below is filled with some of the greatest names ever to play the position.

Randy Moss, in his prime, was arguably the biggest receiving threat ever. His 23 TD receptions in 2007 stands today as the single-season record.

Just behind Moss is the greatest ever to play the wide receiver position, Jerry Rice. Rice and Moss have a combined five seasons with at least 17 touchdown receptions.

Always Find Your Best Odds

When it comes to finding an advantage against the sportsbooks, the single greatest edge a recreational sports gambler has is to shop around for their very Best Odds.

This is true when making any type of wager, but it is especially true when looking at odds for Futures Betting and Player Props.

When setting moneylines and point spreads for a football game, you will see a slight variance in odds between sportsbooks.

However, a gambler might see significant odds discrepancies when it comes to Futures Betting and Player Props.

This year, you might find Stefon Diggs at +900 to lead the NFL in receiving touchdowns, or you might be able to shop around and see him at +1200.

For a $100 bettor, that is a difference of $300 in profit if Diggs were to win the receiving TD title.

Multiplied over several bets, that advantage can often be the difference between being profitable or not.
