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.

LaMonte Wade Jr. to record 2+ total bases – Boosted from +160 to +200 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The Giants and Dodgers will begin their playoff series tonight and here we will need LaMonte Wade Jr. to record at least 2+ total bases. Wade was 12 of 38 (.316) against the Dodgers this season, which included 5 doubles and 2 home runs. Because of the success he has had against the Dodgers, backing this prop looks to be worth a small play.

Brewers pitchers to record 15+ strikeouts – Boosted from +180 to +230 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The Brewers and Braves will begin their NLDS series this afternoon. Here we will need the Brewers’ pitchers to record at least 15 strikeouts. Corbin Burnes will be the starter for the Brewers, so he will need a big game to even get close to this number. The Braves’ hitters have performed well against Burnes this season though, so backing this prop is probably best avoided.

Arizona State win by 21+ points – Boosted from +190 to +220 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Arizona State will look to follow up their win against UCLA with a game against the Stanford Cardinal. The Cardinal upset Oregon last week, but this looks to be a flat spot. We already like the Sun Devils to win by 2 touchdowns, so with a lacking Stanford defense, this looks to be a prop worth backing.

Tim Anderson or Jose Altuve to hit a home run – Boosted from +200 to +260 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Game 2 of the series between the White Sox and Astros is this afternoon and here we will need either Tim Anderson or Jose Altuve to record a home run. Anderson has only 2 home runs against the Astros this season, while Altuve has only 1 home run against the White Sox. Because both guys are hurting their opponents in other ways, this looks to be a prop best to avoid.

Over 31.5 runs to be scored today – Boosted from -115 to +110 with FanDuel Sportsbook

This prop will need a total of 32 runs to be scored over the 4 games today. We like the over in the Astros/White Sox game, but the under in the remaining 3 games because of the pitchers that will be starting. For that reason, this looks to be a prop to stay away from.

Milwaukee Brewers, Tampa Bay Rays & Los Angeles Dodgers all to win – Boosted from +400 to +500 with FanDuel Sportsbook

This parlay will need 3 teams to win their games. Of the 3 teams included, we only like the Dodgers to win. As for the other games, we would lean to the Braves and the Red Sox, so avoiding this prop looks to be the best option.
