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

West Ham and Leicester City both to score a goal in the first half – Boosted to +400 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The EPL will conclude matchday 2 this afternoon as West Ham United and Leicester City will both look to start their season with 2 wins. Our experts love both teams to score in this game, so doing so in the 1st half at these odds looks to be a reasonable play.

Jaguars & Saints both to score points on their first possession – Boosted to +550 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The Jaguars and Saints will wrap up Week 2 of the NFL preseason tonight. This prop will need both teams to score on the first possession, and while the Saints doing this seems likely, it may be the opposite for the Jaguars. Jacksonville did not exactly look great last week and the Saints’ defense looks to be solid enough to stop an early score for the Jags. For that reason, this looks to be a prop worth avoiding.

Austin Riley to hit a home run – Boosted to +400 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The Braves have won 9 games in a row coming into this series with the also red-hot New York Yankees. Jordan Montgomery will be on the mound for the Yankees with Huascar Ynoa starting for the Braves. Austin Riley is the focus in this game as we will need him to hit a home run. Riley has 27 home runs on the season. He just had 1 in the series with Baltimore, so because Montgomery is not the best pitcher, this looks to be worth a small play.

Mariners vs Athletics: Both teams to hit a home run in the first 5 innings – Boosted to +300 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop will focus on the first half of the game, more specifically the power of both teams. Both teams will start pitchers with ERAs higher than 4.00. So, while our experts ultimately like this game to be lower-scoring, expecting a couple of home runs early on seems to be worth a play.

Lance Lynn to Record 5+ strikeouts and Chicago White Sox to win vs Toronto – Boosted to +220 with FanDuel Sportsbook

This prop will focus on the individual performance of Lance Lynn plus the overall performance of the White Sox. Asking Lynn to have 5+ strikeouts seems very likely for starters. He has 141 strikeouts on the season and has been one of the best pitchers in the league this year. As for a White Sox win, we are less confident. Our experts would actually lean to Toronto because of their offense, so backing this prop is best avoided.

Chicago Cubs & Oakland A’s both to win – Boosted to +260 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Here we will need two teams to win their games, however, our experts do not like either. We would lean to the Mariners in their game with the Athletics and expect the Rockies to beat a slumping Cubs team. For that reason, this parlay should be avoided.

Be sure to check out all our MLB picks for today’s action.

Jaguars vs Saints: Both teams to score 2+ touchdowns – Boosted to +175 with BetMGM Sportsbook

Here we are going to need plenty of offense from both teams, not just one. Asking both sides to score at least two touchdowns sounds reasonable, but in reality, the Jaguars are just not good. The Saints defense should be able to bully this Jaguars offensive line, so avoiding this prop looks to be the best play.

Astros, Jags and Leicester City to all win – Boosted to +1200 with Caesars Sportsbook

We’re looking for a 3-team cross-sport parlay for this boost and it will start with Leicester City this afternoon. We like both teams to score in that game between Leicester and West Ham, though a Leicester win is not unreasonable. We do like the Astros to comfortably win tonight against the Royals. However, the biggest problem will be the Jaguars beating the Saints. Jacksonville did not look great last week and a bounceback game seems unlikely. For that reason, I would look to avoid this parlay.

Cubs, Royals, and Mariners to all win – Boosted to +1000 with Caesars Sportsbook

We have another three-team parlay here, all of which involve MLB games. Of the three teams we will need to win, our experts like only one of them — the Mariners against the Athletics. We do not feel confident in the Royals or the Cubs, making this another parlay that it is probably best to avoid.
