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

Jayson Tatum & Jaylen Brown to combine for 50+ points – Boosted from +100 to +115 with DraftKings Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown to combine for at least 50+ points. Brown is averaging 24.5 points per game, while Tatum is averaging 25.7 points per game. These guys have been the bulk of the Celtics’ offense and even though they are playing a solid 76ers team, they should do their fair share of scoring. They have combined for at least 50+ points in each of their last 2 games, so backing the same here looks to be worth a play.

Golden State Warriors & Chicago Bulls to combine for 30+ 3-pointers – Boosted from +240 to +300 with DraftKings Sportsbook

For this prop, we need the Golden State Warriors and the Chicago Bulls to combine to make at least 30 3-pointers. The Warriors are the 3rd-best team in the NBA at making 3-pointers, averaging 14.3 per game. The Bulls have not been as good, averaging 11.7 3-pointers per game and ranking 20th in the league. Even with that being said, the Bulls know they will likely need to match the Warriors from downtown if they are going to win this game. The Warriors just got crushed by the Bucks last night and may have a tougher time defending the 3-point line due to some fatigue. For that reason, this prop looks to be worth a small play.

Colorado Avalanche to score 6+ goals – Boosted from +210 to +250 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop focuses on the Colorado Avalanche and we will need them to score at least 6+ goals tonight against the Arizona Coyotes. The Avalanche already average 4.30 goals per game, (1st in the NHL), so facing a dreadful Coyotes’ team could work in their favor. The Coyotes also have the worst defense in the NHL, allowing 3.71 goals per game. Based on the strength of the Avalanche offense, this prop looks to be worth a small play.

Giga Chikadze to win in rounds 1-3 – Boosted from +165 to +200 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The first UFC event of 2022 starts tomorrow evening and this prop focuses on the Main Event between Giga Chikadze and Calvin Kattar. We will need Chikadze to win between rounds 1-3. Kattar has been knowing for absorbing a ton of damage and not getting knocked out, but Chikadze has plenty of power, so he should be able to wobble the veteran. Our experts like a Chikadze win too, so a small play on this prop looks to be worth a shot.

Be sure to check out our full fight preview for this Main Event.
