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.

Giannis Antetokounmpo & Julius Randle to combine for 5+ steals/blocks – Boosted from +200 to +225 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This looks to be a unique odds boost as we will need Giannis Antetokounmpo and Julius Randle to combine for 5+ steals/blocks. It is not often that these are the stats needed, but a small play on this could still be warranted. Antetokounmpo is averaging 2.0 blocks per game and 0.875 steals. Rande is averaging 1 block and 0.75 steals per game. Combined this comes out to about 4.625 steals/blocks per game. That is lower that what is needed, but with both these guys expected to be down low for most of the game and playing each other, a small play is worth a shot.

Pelicans & Warriors to combine for 30+ 3-pointers made – Boosted from +150 to +180 with DraftKings Sportsbook

For this prop, we will be looking for a ton of 3-pointers to be made. The Warriors are averaging about 15.5 3-pointers made per game, while the Pelicans are averaging about 11.4. New Orleans has been one of the worst teams so far in the league, so they cannot really be trusted to hold their weight in this prop. For that reason, staying away from this prop looks to be the best option.

Stanford & Utah to combine for 60+ points – Boosted from +160 to +180 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This will be the late game of the Friday night college football slate and we just need points. Utah is averaging about 33.4 points per game, but allowing only 25.3 points. Stanford is not a great defensive team either, allowing close to 27 points per game. Utah has hit the over in 6 of their last 8 games this season and in all 4 of their last 4 games. Our experts already like the over for this contest, so adding an extra touchdown still looks to be a decent play.

Leon Draisaitl and Connor McDavid both to score a goal – Boosted from +330 to +400 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop will probably be tough to back, even though the players involved are world class. We will need Leon Draisaitl and Connor McDavid to both score a goal. This sounds likely, but they have only both scored in 1 game this season. Usually one or the other has done all the scoring and the other is racking up assists. For that reason, this prop looks best avoided.

Justin Gaethje vs Michael Chandler to end in the 1st round – Boosted from +110 to +130 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This fight will be first up on the main card and we are in store for a good one. Both guys will likely coming out swinging, so an early finish should be expected. Our experts like this fight to end by TKO/KO, so adding in a first-round finish looks to be worth a shot.

Manchester City to win & both teams to score – Boosted from +200 to +250 with FanDuel Sportsbook

The Manchester derby is set for 8:30am ET on Saturday morning. Here we need both teams to score, and with both teams having had struggles defending, it looks likely to happen. We will also need Manchester City to win, which our experts like as well, so backing this prop looks to be worth a play.
