The Miami Dolphins let an AFC East title and the No. 2 seed in the AFC playoffs get away over the final two weeks of the regular season. Instead of staying home in the Sunshine State, the Dolphins will have to travel to Arrowhead Stadium this Saturday to take on the defending Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs.

Kansas City's offense has had its ups and downs this year, but the Chiefs were still able to hold on for another AFC West crown.

In what is expected to be one of the coldest games in NFL history, here are the three best bets for anytime touchdown scorers to light up the scoreboard.

Dolphins vs. Chiefs TD Bets

  • Isaiah Pacheco anytime TD
  • Rashee Rice anytime TD
  • De’Von Achane anytime TD

Isaiah Pacheco anytime TD

Pacheco is favored to find the end zone and for good reason. Of Kansas City's nine rushing scores this year, Pacheco has seven of them. The second-year running back is also getting more opportunity in the passing game with quarterback Patrick Mahomes struggling to find reliable options at receiver.

Pacheco has caught 44-of-49 targets this season for 244 yards and is coming off a season-high seven catches for 35 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 16 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. When healthy, Pacheco is Kansas City's bell-cow in the backfield and should get plenty of opportunity against Miami.

Rashee Rice anytime TD

Speaking of reliable options for Mahomes, Rice has become the Chiefs' top target in the passing game after a slow start to the year. Since Week 11, Rice has been averaging 9.3 targets, 7.2 catches and 86.3 receiving yards per game.

Rice has played over 75% of offensive snaps in each of the last four games and leads the Chiefs in receiving touchdowns (7) this season. He could take advantage of the Miami secondary on Saturday, especially if Jalen Ramsey is out.

De'Von Achane anytime TD

There is optimism that Dolphins' running back Raheem Mostert (knee/ankle) can return for the first-round matchup in Kansas City. Mostert set the Dolphins' single-season touchdown record, but Achane has been the most explosive Miami runner in Mike McDaniel's scheme.

Achane missed six games this season, which allowed Mostert to take the lion's share of carries for the Dolphins. With Mostert sidelined the last two weeks, Achane ripped off 163 yards on 24 attempts in losses to the Ravens and Bills. The rookie is averaging 72.7 yards per game and a whopping 7.8 yards per carry.

The Chiefs didn't get a first look at Achane earlier this season. He missed Miami's 21-14 loss to the Chiefs in Germany.

With Achane's explosiveness and Mostert not being 100%, it's worth a shot to see if the speedster can take one to the house.
