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

Joe Musgrove & Julio Urias to combine for 3+ strikeouts in the 1st inning – Boosted from +160 to +195 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Here we are going to need a couple strikeouts over the 1st inning. Joe Musgrove has a K/9 of 10.13, while Julio Urias has a K/9 of 9.68. It is true that both offenses are powerful, but these pitchers have the ability to get some swing and misses. For that reason, this prop looks to be worth a small play.

Yankees & Mets to combine for 4+ home runs – Boosted from +290 to +340 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The Yankees and Mets will begin a series on Friday night and here we will need several home runs. Jordan Montgomery and Tylor Megill both have been somewhat inconsistent this season. Both Megill and Montgomery have allowed 14 home runs this season, so expecting at least a few home runs looks to be worth a play.

Coastal Carolina to win by 30+ points – Boosted from +130 to +145 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Coastal Carolina will host Kansas tonight and they are expected to win by a ton. They are favored by nearly 4 touchdowns, and our experts do like their chances to cover. For this prop, we will need them to win by at least 30+ and given how their offense looked in Week 1, this looks to be worth a play. Kansas got lucky in their win last week, and look to be outmatched here.

Birmingham & Lille both to win – Boosted from +350 to +380 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Friday afternoon soccer will see Birmingham of the EFL Championship play Derby County and Lille from Ligue 1 take on Lorient. Lille has had a bit of a rough start to their season, but Lorient is a team they can beat. Birmingham has also struggled so far, but Derby is struggling more. Derby has Wayne Rooney as their manager, but that does not look to be enough to take down Birmingham. For that reason, this parlay looks to be worth a small play.

Tampa Bay Rays & Milwaukee Brewers both To win – Boosted from +155 to +210 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Here we will need 2 teams to win their games. Tampa Bay will play the Detroit Tigers and the Milwaukee Brewers will play the Cleveland Indians. Our experts love the Brewers and are confident enough about the Rays to make this parlay worth a play.

Novak Djokovic to win the 1st set & win the match – Boosted from -120 to +110 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Novak Djokovic is just 2 wins away from the calendar Grand Slam and nobody looks like they will stop him. He does have a tough semifinal match tonight, facing Alexander Zverev. Djokovic lost to Zverev at the Olympics, but in a Major semifinal, he looks to be too strong. He has lost a couple opening sets in this tournament, but with this being a semifinal, look for Djokovic to start strong and win comfortably.

Man Utd, Man City and Chelsea all to win – Boosted from +135 to +175 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Here we will head to Saturday as the English Premier League returns. We will need Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea to all win. Cristiano Ronaldo will make his return to Old Trafford, Man City will take on Leicester City and Chelsea will play Aston Villa. Our experts like all 3 of these teams to pick up the full 3 points, so backing this parlay looks to be a solid play.

Iowa State to score 25+ points and win – Boosted from +110 to +130 with PointsBet Sportsbook

An in-state rivalry will take place on Saturday as the Iowa State Cyclones will take on the Iowa Hawkeyes. We actually like the under in this game plus an Iowa cover, so asking Iowa State to score 25+ points looks to be too much. For that reason, this prop might be best to avoid.
