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

Ole Miss to score 42+ points – Boosted from +100 to +110 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Monday’s game between the Ole Miss Rebels and Louisville Cardinals is set be one with a ton of points. Louisville’s defense was not good last season and even though Lane Kiffin will not be on the sideline due to a positive test, expect the Rebels to score at a high rate. Asking them to score 42 sounds a bit steep, but with a ton of returning starters, this prop looks to be worth a play.

Kris Bryant to record 3+ total bases – Boosted from +135 to +155 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop will focus on Kris Bryant and his ability to get on base. Here we will need him to record at least 3 total bases, which is at least 2 or more hits. The Giants will be facing the Rockies in Colorado and Kyle Freeland will be on the mound. This is enough to believe Bryant could have a productive game at the plate, so backing this prop is worth a play.

Shohei Ohtani to hit a home run – Boosted from +230 to +265 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Shohei Ohtani continues to launch home runs at an alarming rate and tonight should be another great opportunity. The Angels are facing the Rangers, who have AJ Alexy on the mound. He does not yet have much MLB experience, so it seems likely that Ohtani can take advantage. For that reason, this prop looks to be worth a small play.

Trea Turner to steal a base – Boosted from +400 to +450 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Focusing on the Dodgers for this prop and more specifically, Trea Turner. He will need to steal a base, something he has the ability to do. Of course, he will need to get on base first, but his speed makes this prop worth a small play.

Cincinnati Reds, San Francisco Giants & Houston Astros all to win – Boosted from -110 to +125 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Here we will need 3 teams to win their games, but our experts do have concerns about one of these teams. We do like the Reds to win, but like the Rockies to upset the Giants. For that reason, this parlay is probably best to avoid.

Louisville vs Ole Miss: Both teams to score 30+ points – Boosted from -110 to +110 with BetMGM Sportsbook

Going back to the lone college football game and we will need points from both sides. We already like the over in this game and the Rebels to score 42 points by themselves. Louisville returns some offensive production as well, and the Ole Miss defense was awful last season, making this prop worth a play.
