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

Villanova to win by 3+ points – Boosted from +195 to +225 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Probably the biggest game on the college basketball card tonight sees the Villanova Wildcats take on the UCLA Bruins. This prop needs Villanova to win by at least 3 points; however, our experts like UCLA as the favorite. For that reason, this prop looks best stayed away from.

Russell Westbrook to record a triple double – Boosted from +125 to +140 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop will focus on Russell Westbrook and will need him to record a triple-double. He has 3 triple-doubles on the season, but has back to back triple-doubles in his last 2 games. Still without LeBron James, Westbrook has become more of a focal point in this offense and playing Minnesota should be a good spot for him to have a big game. For that reason, backing this prop looks to be worth a lean.

Lonzo Ball & Jordan Poole to combine for 6+ made 3-point field goals – Boosted from -105 to +105 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop needs Lonzo Ball and Jordan Poole to combine for at least 6 three-pointers in tonight’s game. Ball is shooting 34 of 76 from downtown this season (44.7%), while Poole is 29-90 (32.2%). Looking at their game logs, they would have combined for 6 three-pointers in 5 of the 11 games so far. Poole has been more effective from long range since the start of November, so backing this prop is worth a small play.

Cincinnati -23.5 & over 57.5 total points – Boosted from +185 to +220 with FanDuel Sportsbook

The Cincinnati Bearcats continue to make their case for a top 4 spot and tonight will go a long way in terms of impressing the committee. They not only need to win, but need to win big if they want to be considered. Facing South Florida should be a good spot for them and our experts like them to cover this big number. As for the total, we do lean towards the under because South Florida is likely going to struggle putting up points. For that reason, staying away from this prop looks to be the best option.

USA to win & both teams to score – Boosted from +500 to +650 with FanDuel Sportsbook

This prop needs the USA men’s soccer team to beat Mexico and will also need both teams to score. This is a crucial World Cup Qualifying game and while the USA is at home, our experts like Mexico to come away with the 3 points. For that reason, this prop looks best avoided.

Washington Capitals & Toronto Maple Leafs both to win – Boosted from +175 to +230 with FanDuel Sportsbook

For this parlay, we will need 2 NHL teams to win their games tonight: the Washington Capitals against the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Toronto Maple Leafs against the Calgary Flames. Our experts like both of these teams to win, therefore backing this parlay is worth a shot.
