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

Yankees to hit 3+ home runs – Boosted from +145 to +180 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Whenever the Yankees and Orioles play each other, you can always expect a ton of power. That will be the case tonight as we will need the Yankees to hit 3 home runs. They are facing John Means, who is one of Baltimore’s best starting pitchers, but expecting at least a few home runs from New York is worth a small play.

Any player to hit a triple in Dodgers vs Giants – Boosted from +200 to +245 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants will meet in what looks to be a crucial series tonight. The Dodgers and Giants are tied in the NL West and tonight we will be looking for any triple. Both teams have enough speed that a ball in the gap could produce just that. Note that the Dodgers’ outfield is more than capable of gunning down a runner, but this prop still looks to be worth a small play.

Austin Riley to hit a home run – Boosted from +250 to +310 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The Atlanta Braves got back in the win column on Thursday, beating the Colorado Rockies 6-5. Tonight we will focus on Austin Riley to hit a home run. He has a couple of hits last night with 2 RBIs and facing Antonio Senzatela looks to be another favorable matchup. Riley obviously has a ton of power, so because this game is in Colorado, backing this prop looks to be worth a small play.

Naomi Osaka to beat Leylah Annie Fernandez 2-0 – Boosted from -210 to -125 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Naomi Osaka easily won her first-round match at the US Open and advanced to the third round with a walkover. She has been playing very solid tennis this season and will look to advance against the Canadian teenager, Leylah Annie Fernandez. The Canadian has won both of her matches 2-0, but facing Osaka will be a much tougher task. With an extra day of rest for Osaka, backing her to win in straight sets looks to be a solid play.

Philadelphia Phillies & Atlanta Braves both to win – Boosted from +179 to +230 with FanDuel Sportsbook

After a recent losing streak for Atlanta and a winning streak for Philadelphia, the Phillies have closed the gap on the Braves in the NL East. They both have favorable matchups here tonight with the Braves playing the Rockies and the Phillies playing the Marlins. Our experts like both to win, making this parlay worth a play.

North Carolina vs Virginia Tech: Both teams to score 30+ points – Boosted to +190 with BetMGM Sportsbook

Two ACC rivals will kick off their season against each other in what should be a wild game. Both offenses are more than capable of scoring a ton here with plenty of talent returning. Both defenses tend to leak points as well, making this prop worth a play.

Colorado to cover +90 vs Northern Colorado – Boosted to +100 with PointsBet Sportsbook

The Colorado Buffaloes will open their season with the Northern Colorado Bears and PointsBet is offering a crazy boost. The Buffaloes are already massive favorites, but here they will need to cover +90. This is essentially free money, so this boost is an absolute must play.
