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

Murray State to cover +5.5 points – Boosted from +185 to +225 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop needs the Murray State Racers to cover 5.5 points against the Memphis Tigers. The Tigers have lost 3 straight and continue to turn the ball over at an alarming rate. Our experts like the Racers to cover the double-digit spread tonight, but this is a game that could easily be under 2 possessions or even an outright win for the Racers. For that reason, backing this prop looks to be worth a play.

James Harden & Trae Young to combine for 25+ assists/3-pointers – Boosted from -111 to +100 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop is oddly specific, as we will need James Harden and Trae Young to combine for 25 assists/3-pointers made. Harden is averaging 9.6 assists per game (2nd in the NBA), while Young is averaging 9.4 assists per game (3rd in the NBA). They both are nearly averaging 3 3-pointers made per game as well, so backing this prop looks to be worth a small play in what should be a back-and-forth high-scoring game.

30+ 3-pointers made in Celtics vs Suns – Boosted from +400 to +450 with DraftKings Sportsbook

For this prop, we need 30 total 3-pointers to be made in the game between the Celtics and the Suns. The problem is that the Celtics average 12.2 3-pointers made per game and the Suns average 11.3 3-pointers made per game. Devin Booker is still out for the Suns as well, therefore avoiding this prop looks to be the best option.

Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals to both score in the first period – Boosted from +170 to +195 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop will focus on just the first period between the Penguins and the Capitals. They will both need to score, though our experts are expecting a lower-scoring game, so a fast start might be unlikely. Both teams have offensive firepower, but avoiding this prop still looks to be the best option.

New York Rangers, Washington Capitals & New Jersey Devils All to Win – Boosted from +400 to +500 with FanDuel Sportsbook

This parlay needs 3 NHL teams to win their games tonight: the New York Rangers against the Buffalo Sabres, the Washington Capitals against the Pittsburgh Penguins and the New Jersey Devils against the Nashville Predators. Our experts like the Capitals and Rangers both to win, while the Devils have a winnable game against the Predators. For that reason, this parlay looks to be worth a play.

Emmanuel Denis to have 1+ shot on goal and 2+ total goals in the match – Boosted from -160 to -130 with PointsBet Sportsbook

This prop needs Emmanuel Denis from Watford to have 1 shot on goal this afternoon and there to be at least 2 goals in the 3pm EPL game against Brentford. Dennis has 28 shots this season (13 on target), averaging about 0.87 shots on target per game. However, Brentford is going through a tough stretch at the moment, allowing 9 goals over their last 5 games. Dennis is likely going to have his chances to at least test the Brentford keeper. Both defenses have had their struggles, so backing this prop looks to be worth a small play.
