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.

Devin Booker to make 4+ three-pointers – Boosted from +375 to +450 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop focuses on the ability of Devin Booker to knock down some 3-pointers. He will need to make 4 in the Suns’ game tonight against the Dallas Mavericks. Booker has made at least 4 3-pointers only twice this season and is shooting 36.9% from downtown. He is averaging 2.2 made threes per game, so while he will likely have an impact tonight, staying away from this prop looks to be the best option.

LeBron James to record 40+ points/rebounds/assists  – Boosted from +145 to +165 with DraftKings Sportsbook

LeBron James looks set to return against the Boston Celtics tonight and this prop needs him to have an immediate impact. We will need James to combine for 40+ points/rebounds/assists. In the 6 games he has played this season, only 2 have seen him surpass the number needed for this prop. There is also still a chance that James could be limited or not play at all due to his injury, therefore avoiding this prop looks to be the best option.

Colorado Avalanche to score 2+ goals in first period – Boosted from +230 to +270 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop focuses on the Colorado Avalanche starting the game strongly and scoring at least 2 goals in the 1st period. They have managed to score 2 goals in the 1st period in only 3 games this season and average 1.15 goals per game in the opening period. The Seattle Kraken defense has not been great, but this still looks to be a prop best to avoid because the Avalanche tend to start slowly.

Michigan to win by 20+ points – Boosted from +175 to +215 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This NCAAB game is technically scheduled for Saturday morning at 12:30 am ET. It needs Michigan to win by at least 20 points against UNLV. The Wolverines are coming off a home loss to Seton Hall, whereas the Rebels have yet to lose this season. This will easily be UNLV’s toughest test so far, and our experts like Michigan to win and cover in a bounce-back spot. The spread in this game is Michigan -12.5, but a dominant win seems likely. For that reason, backing Michigan to win by 20 at plus money looks to be worth a small play.

San Diego State and UNLV to combine for fewer than 34.5 points – Boosted from +225 to +250 with DraftKings Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need a defensive NCAAF battle between San Diego State and UNLV. The Aztecs are likely to lean on their run game and will look to burn the clock. Neither quarterback airs it out much, so we will likely not see many long pass plays. Our experts would lean to the under on the normal line (41 points), so backing this alternate total looks to be worth a small play.

Both Air Force and Houston to win – Boosted from +140 to +180 with FanDuel Sportsbook

This parlay needs 2 college football teams to win their games tonight, the Air Force Falcons against the Nevada Wolfpack and the Houston Cougars against the Memphis Tigers. Our experts love Air Force behind their rushing attack and would back Houston to run away against Memphis. For that reason, this parlay looks to be a solid play.
