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

First off, we’ll have some plays from Pickswise’s newest analyst The Promo Guy (@ThePromoGuy123). Every day you can find his recommendations and analysis exclusively on Pickswise. Let’s dive in:

First basket Friday – Place a $25 first basket scorer bet and get $1 in site credit for every 3-pointer both teams make (FanDuel)

Best to pick someone from a game with a lot of 3s (Warriors, Nets, Jazz games). I’m going with DeAndre Ayton +600.

CBB parlay insurance: Bet $25 on a 4+ leg CBB parlay (minimum -200 per leg) and get your money back if you lose exactly 1 leg (FanDuel)

I’m going with Cornell first half winner -200, UCSB -1.5 alternate first half spread (-188), St. John’s +10.5 alternate spread (-190) and Notre Dame money line (-196) for this CBB parlay insurance.

Caesar’s Friday double promo – Bet football and if your team covers, earn a free bet equal to your stake, up to $50 (Caesar’s)

I’m taking Utah -2.5 for this Friday football double promo.

Odds boost: Rangers and Ducks both to win boosted to +300 (FanDuel)

The 0-vig line for these two plays is ~+233 giving this a ~+20.1% EV at +300!

Happy hour odds boost: Trae Young and Steph Curry to combine for 8+ threes boosted to +125 (FanDuel)

This line should be no worse than +100 making the EV at least +12.5%!

-That’s it for The Promo Guy.

If you’re still hungry for more sportsbook promotions and odds boosts, check out these plays from Pickswise analyst Matt Lowrimore:

Paul George & LeBron James to combine for 55+ points – Boosted from +200 to +230 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop will focus on Paul George and LeBron James for the game tonight between the Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers. They will need to combine for at least 55 points. James is likely returning tonight after being cleared from Health and Safety Protocols and is averaging 25.8 points per game. George is averaging 25.9 points per game, so even though this does not equal our number, there is still reason to back this prop. James has scored 30 points or more in each of his last 3 games, so we should expect the same tonight. If James can score 30 and George and hit his average, we will be at the number we need, therefore backing this prop looks to be worth a play.

Oregon to lead at halftime & win the game – Boosted from +215 to +235 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop will focus on the PAC-12 Championship tonight between the Oregon Ducks and the Utah Utes. Utah blasted Oregon a few weeks ago 38-7, which basically eliminated the Ducks from the College Football Playoff. We will need the Ducks to be in revenge mode tonight, and they will need to lead at halftime and win the game. However, our experts would go right back to Utah in this spot, therefore backing this prop should likely be avoided.

Connor McDavid to record 3+ points – Boosted from +225 to +250 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Connor McDavid is one of if not the best player in the NHL right now and here we will need to record at least 3 points against the Seattle Kraken. The Kraken have had all kinds of defensive issues in their first season, opening the door for a big game for McDavid. He is coming off a game where he recorded 4 points against the Pittsburgh Penguins, so backing this prop looks to be worth a small play.

Purdue & Iowa to combine for 170+ points – Boosted from +190 to +225 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Purdue is off to a flying start, winning all 7 of their games so far and sitting as the 2nd ranked team in the country. Iowa is also undefeated and here we will need the teams to combine for at least 170 points. Purdue is averaging 92.4 points per game, while Iowa is averaging 94 points per game. Our experts would lean to the over, so backing this prop looks to be worth a play.

Dallas Mavericks to cover (-7.5) and the Atlanta Hawks to cover (-1.5) – Boosted from +264 to +300 with PointsBet Sportsbook

This parlay will need both the Dallas Mavericks and the Atlanta Hawks to cover in their games tonight. The Hawks play the 76ers, a game our experts like them to win and cover in. Dallas on the other hand, play the New Orleans Pelicans. The Pelicans are one of the worst teams in the NBA right now, and Dallas has the firepower to beat them handily. For that reason, backing this parlay looks to be worth a play.

New York Rangers & Anaheim Ducks Both to Win – Boosted from +230 to +300 with FanDuel Sportsbook

For this parlay, we will need 2 NHL teams to win their games tonight. That being the New York Rangers against the San Jose Sharks and the Anaheim Ducks against the Calgary Flames. Our experts would lean to a Rangers to win, while the Ducks have a winnable game against the Flames. For that reason, this parlay looks to be worth a small play.
