Matthew uses a variety of methods to handicap games, including stats, trends, injuries, and situational factors. His goal is to consistently give out winners and will put in the research to try and achieve this.

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

Chris Sale to record 8+ Strikeouts – Boosted to +110 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Tonight we will be looking for a rather dominant performance from Chris Sale and the Boston Red Sox. Sale had 8 strikeouts in his first start back and facing the Rangers tonight does not look to be that had of a task. The Rangers have plenty of strikeout prone players throughout their lineup, so backing this prop looks to be worth a play.

Justin Turner & Trea Turner each to record 2+ Total Bases – Boosted to +425 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Headed out West for this prop as we will be looking for both Justin Turner and Trea Turner to record at least 2 total bases. A couple hits for each guys would take care of this or just a double from both players. The Dodgers will be facing the Mets, who have fallen off big time and with Carlos Carrasco on the mound, this looks to be worth a play.

Bryce Harper or Fernando Tatis Jr to hit a home run – Boosted to +140 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Here is another game out West as the Phillies and Padres will begin a series. For this prop, we are looking for either Bryce Harper or Fernando Tatis Jr to hit a home run. The Phillies have Matt Moore on the mound and he has not been good to say the least. Blake Snell has also struggled for the Padres, so with both Harper and Tatis Jr having plenty of power, this is worth a small play.

PSG & RB Leipzig both to win – Boosted to +100 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The top flight of French soccer and German soccer resumes today as PSG will battle Brest and RB Leipzig will take on VfB Stuttgart. Both teams are heavily favored against teams who look like mid-table teams at best. PSG acquired Messi of course, so backing them to keep their perfect start to the season looks to be a solid play. Leipzig actually lost their opening game, but still have enough quality to get past Stuttgart. At even money, this looks to be a solid play.

Both the Washington Football Team and Arizona Cardinals to Win – Boosted to +310 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Week 2 of the NFL preseason will continue tonight as Kansas City will play Arizona and Washington will play Cincinnati. Our experts like both the Bengals and Cardinals to cover, however a win, especially for Arizona seems to be unlikely. For that reason, this looks to be an odds boost best to avoid.

Be sure to check out all our NFL picks for today’s action.

Chiefs to score the first points of the game – Boosted to -105 with BetMGM Sportsbook

The Chiefs will play the Cardinals in the second week of NFL preseason action tonight. The Chiefs will likely allow Patrick Mahomes to play drive or two, which ultimately should result in points. The Chiefs have a great kicker too, so as long as the Chiefs get in range, this prop looks to be worth a play.
