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

Kike Hernandez to record 2+ hits – Boosted from +320 to +390 with DraftKings Sportsbook

For this prop, we will be sticking with the hot hand in Kike Hernandez. He was 4 for 5 in Game 1 of the AlCS, including a home run in the 9th inning. He is seeing the ball extremely well right now and it is not like Houston has their best starter on the mound for Game 2. For that reason, this prop has to be a play at the price being offered.

Ole Miss to win by 10+ points – Boosted from +200 to +225 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop will need Ole Miss to beat Tennessee by 10 or more points. They are favored by roughly a field goal, but their offense looks like it could do enough to make this at least a 2-score game. The Ole Miss defense is still a concern, but I do not think the Vols will be able to match this Rebels’ offense, therefore this prop looks to be worth a small play.

Iowa to score 30+ points – Boosted from +115 to +125 with DraftKings Sportsbook

As good as Iowa’s defense has been this season, their offense is not quite up to par. They are facing Purdue, though, who could easily hand them a couple of turnovers. The Hawkeyes are averaging 31.5 points per game this season, a lot of which has to do with their defense. Our experts like the over here, which likely translates to Iowa scoring. For that reason, this prop looks to be worth a play.

NLCS Game 1, either team to win by exactly 1 run – Boosted from +200 to +270 with FanDuel Sportsbook

The NLCS will start tonight and it is shaping up to be a tight game. The Dodgers will start Max Scherzer, while the Braves will start Max Fried. Both pitchers had great season, likely making runs hard to come by. It will probably take a clutch hit to decide the winner of this game, so backing this prop looks to be worth a small play.

Georgia to score 30+ points and Kentucky to score under 10.5 points – Boosted from +150 to +165 with PointsBet Sportsbook

Georgia’s defense looks to be on another level this season and they will put that to the test against Kentucky this afternoon. Even though Kentucky is 6-0, they have not faced a defense this good and have even struggled at times against weak opponents. Their best win was against Florida and even in that game, they did not move the ball well. This game has the feeling of Georgia vs Arkansas from a few weeks ago, so backing this prop looks to be worth a small play.

Colorado to score first and win – Boosted from +105 to +125 with PointsBet Sportsbook

In no way has Colorado been a good team this season. However, in a game against 0-5 Arizona, they certainly look to be the better team. Arizona has been downright awful, and probably are the worst team in the Pac-12. Though, Colorado is almost just as bad. Because this is a game featuring horrible teams, avoiding this prop is probably the best option.
