We have put together a list of all of the day’s best odds boosts, which today are from DraftKings Sportsbook, FanDuel Sportsbook, and PointsBet Sportsbook. We’ll discuss whether or not they are worth playing.

Hawks to lead at halftime & Knicks to win the game – Boosted from +500 to +600 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The NBA tips off on Christmas Day with a game between the Atlanta Hawks and the New York Knicks. Here we will need the Hawks to be leading at halftime but the Knicks to win the game. The Hawks may scoring to be tough in this game with Trae Young not expected to be clear from COVID protocol. For that reason, this looks to be a prop worth avoiding because it very well could be a Knicks win from start to finish.

Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Packers and Browns to Each Score 1+ Rushing Touchdowns and 1+ Passing Touchdowns – Boosted from +230 to +300 with FanDuel Sportsbook

This prop will focus on both the Green Bay Packers and the Cleveland Browns. They will each need to record 1 rushing touchdown and 1 passing touchdown. A passing touchdown is almost guaranteed for the Packers with Aaron Rodgers having caught fire as of recently. The same can be said for Cleveland in terms of a rushing touchdown with Nick Chubb in the backfield. Baker Mayfield looks as though he will be active for the Browns, so a passing touchdown also seems likely. Plus, the Packers have Aaron Jones in their backfield, therefore backing this prop looks to be worth a play.

Aaron Rodgers to record 250+ passing yards and the Packers to win – Boosted from +105 to +125 with PointsBet Sportsbook

This prop will focus on Rodgers as he will need at least 250+ yards passing. We will also need the Green Bay Packers to win the game. Our experts do like the Packers to win and cover with ease, and Rodgers is averaging 268.2 passing yards per game. For that reason, this prop is worth a play.

Nick Chubb to record 75+ rushing yards and 1+ touchdowns – Boosted from +140 to +170 with PointsBet Sportsbook

Chubb is averaging 92.5 rushing yards per game and has reached at east 75 rushing yards in 8 of the 11 games he has played in. He also has 7 rushing touchdowns, therefore this prop is worth a play.

Jonathan Taylor to record 100+ yards rushing and the Colts to win – Boosted from +160 to +200 with PointsBet Sportsbook

Taylor is averaging 108.4 rushing yards per game and has gone over this number in 8 games this season. Our experts also like the Colts to win the game outright, so backing this prop is more than worth a play.

Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Kyler Murray to record 250+ yards passing and the Cardinals to win – Boosted from +200 to +250 with PointsBet Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Kyler Murray to record at least 250+ passing yards and the Cardinals to win. Murray is averaging 276.3 passing yards per game, but the Cardinals look to be reeling and our experts do not like them to win this game. For that reason, this is a prop best to avoid.
