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.

UCF to score 45+ points – Boosted from +180 to +200 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop will focus on the Friday night college football game and specifically UCF. The Knights will play the Louisville Cardinals and we will be looking for UCF to score a ton of points. They have the offense to do just that and the Cardinals’ defense has already been gashed this season. For that reason, this looks to be worth a small play.

Ian Anderson to record a win – Boosted from +300 to +350 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The Braves got an extra day of rest due to the weather in Atlanta on Thursday and will head out west to take on the Giants. The Braves will need to perform well here because the Phillies are hot on their heels. Our experts actually like the Giants to win by a few runs, so this looks to be best avoided.

Hertha Berlin and Leeds United to both win – Boosted from +290 to +320 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Here we will need two teams to win their Friday games — Hertha Berlin from the German league and Leeds United from the English Premier League. Hertha Berlin will face last-placed Greuther Furth and Leeds will face Newcastle. Hertha Berlin has not played great this season, but look to have enough to win. As for Leeds, they have also yet to win and while we expect a high-scoring game, the Whites also look to have enough to beat Newcastle. For that reason, this looks to be worth a small play.

Philadelphia Phillies, Chicago White Sox and San Francisco all to win – Boosted from +320 to +400 with FanDuel Sportsbook

For the parlay, we will need 3 teams to win their games tonight. Our experts like the Phillies to beat the Mets and Giants to beat the Braves comfortably and while we like the Rangers to cover against the White Sox, a Chicago win is still likely. For that reason, this parlay looks to be worth a play.

New York Red Bulls to score 2+ goals vs Inter Miami – Boosted from +250 to +330 with FanDuel Sportsbook

The MLS will be in action tonight as the Red Bulls will take on Inter Miami. We expect the Red Bulls to keep this game tight and like them to win or draw. However, Inter Miami’s defense has been very good, so this prop is best avoided.

Walker Buehler to record 6+ strikeouts and the Dodgers to win – Boosted from +105 to +125 with PointsBet Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Walker Buehler to have 6+ strikeouts and the Dodgers to win. Buehler has been almost unhittable this season, while also having posted a K/9 of 9.14. Asking him to have 6 strikeouts against the Reds looks like a solid play, and backing the Dodgers to win also looks to be a good look. For that reason, this prop looks to be worth a small play.
