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

DeMar DeRozan and Devin Booker to combine for 60+ points – Boosted from +165 to +195 with DraftKings Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need DeMar DeRozan and Devin Booker to combine for at least 60 points. DeRozan is averaging 27.9 points per game on the season, while Booker is averaging 25.8 points per game. It is important to note that in the lone head-to-head game between the Bulls and Suns, DeRozan and Booker managed to drop 38 points each. That is promising going into this second matchup, so with playoff seeding still on the line, this prop looks to be worth a play.

Luka Doncic to record a triple double – Boosted from +390 to +500 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop needs Luka Doncic to record a triple-double for the Dallas Mavericks tonight against the Philadelphia 76ers. Doncic is averaging 28.2 points, 9.3 rebounds, and 8.6 assists per game. In his first game against the 76ers this season, Doncic scored 33 points, had 15 assists and 13 rebounds. Given that success against Philly, I would expect him to have another huge game, even on the road. For that reason, this prop looks to be worth a small play.

Over 2.5 goals scored in the first period of Washington Capitals vs Carolina Hurricanes – Boosted from +215 to +250 with DraftKings Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need there to be over 2.5 goals scored in the first period of the NHL game between the Washington Capitals and the Carolina Hurricanes. Both teams are a little below average at scoring in the 1st period, Washington ranking 23rd and Carolina ranking 15th. They are however, among the top defensive teams when it comes to allowing goals in the 1st period with Washington ranking 3rd in goals allowed and Carolina ranking 4th. Because of this defensive ability shown early in most games, this prop should likely be avoided.

Carolina Hurricanes, Boston Bruins & Calgary Flames all to win – Boosted from +270 to +350 with FanDuel Sportsbook

For this parlay, we will need 3 NHL teams to win their games tonight: the Carolina Hurricanes against the Washington Capitals, the Boston Bruins against the Winnipeg Jets and the Calgary Flames against the Buffalo Sabres. Our experts are confident in a Flames win, and would lean towards the Hurricanes. However, we would also lean to the Jets to upset the Bruins, so avoiding this parlay looks to be the best option.
