The Dallas Cowboys and Chicago Bears square off on Thursday Night Football to open Week 14, and scoring expectations aren’t exactly high. DraftKings Sportsbook has set the point total at 43, which is tied for the fourth lowest of the 16 games in Week 14.

That being said, there is some expectation of scoring, and it’s time to consider value in betting on who will score the first touchdown of the game. DraftKings Sportsbook offers a lengthy list of options, but below are the top eight best odds.

It’s not surprising Ezekiel Elliott and David Montgomery top the list. Both passing games have their share of weapons, but they are ground-based offenses. Elliott makes all the more sense due to his prolific work of late in the passing game.

The best values are probably Anthony Miller and Javon Wims. The Bears will be without Taylor Gabriel, which means Miller and Wims get the snaps opposite Allen Robinson. Miller is coming off a a 13-target effort on Thanksgiving in which he finished with nine receptions for 140 yards. He didn’t get into the end zone, but the opportunities are there.

Ezekiel Elliott: +475
David Montgomery: +650
Amari Cooper: +950
Allen Robinson II: +1050
Tarik Cohen: +1200
Anthony Miller: +1300
Michael Gallup: +1300
Dak Prescott: +1400
