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

Jose Altuve to hit a home run – Boosted from +360 to +475 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Jose Altuve certainly found his swing in Game 2, recording a few hits including a long home run in the later innings. Tonight the series shifts to Atlanta and we will need another home run for this prop. Though Ian Anderson will get the ball and has done a decent job of keeping the ball in the park. We are expecting a Braves bounce back, so staying away from this prop looks to be the best option.

LaMelo Ball & Bam Adebayo to combine for 70+ Points/Rebounds/Assists – Boosted from +280 to +320 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop will very specifically target LaMelo Ball and Bam Adebayo as they will play each other tonight. We will need them to combine for 70 points/rebounds/assists. Looking at their stat lines so far, they would have reached this number in 2 of the 4 games. It is still a very high number and the Heat have a solid defense, which suggests Ball might struggle here. For that reason, this prop might be best to avoid.

Freddie Freeman to record 2+ hits – Boosted from +200 to +230 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The Braves will look to bounce back tonight as the series moves to Atlanta. This prop will target Freddie Freeman and we will need him to record 2 hits. He has 1 hit in each game so far, but being at home should give Freeman a boost. He is too good not to have a real impact in this series, so backing this prop looks to be worth a play.

Either Kevin Durant or Domantas Sabonis to score 35+ points – Boosted from +150 to +165 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop will target Kevin Durant and Domantas Sabonis in tonight’s game between the Brooklyn Nets and the Indiana Pacers. One of these guys will need to score at 35 points. Sabonis is averaging 21.6 points so far this season and has not scored more than 35 points in a game yet. Durant is averaging 29.8 points per game, and has only scored more than 35 points once. Because both guys are usually in the mid 20s to low 30s in terms of points, staying away from this prop looks to be the best option.

Carolina Hurricanes to win by 3+ Goals – Boosted from +200 to +230 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The Carolina Hurricanes will look to continue their perfect start to the season as they will play the Chicago Blackhawks. Our experts already like them to win on the puck line, so asking them to win by 3+ goals against a winless Chicago team looks to be worth a play.

New York Rangers & Florida Panthers Both To Win – Boosted from +135 to +170 with FanDuel Sportsbook

For this parlay we will need 2 teams to win their games. That being the New York Rangers, who are playing the Columbus Blue Jackets, and the Florida Panthers, who are playing the Detroit Red Wings. Our experts like the Panthers to win with issue and to keep their perfect record intact. However, we would like a Blue Jackets win over the Rangers, so backing this prop is probably best to avoid.
