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

Oregon to win the 1st quarter by 10+ points – Boosted from +110 to +125 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Oregon will look to keep rolling tonight as they face the Arizona Wildcats. A dominant 1st quarter is what we will need here and the Ducks’ offense certainly has the firepower to deliver. Add in the fact that Arizona’s defense is not good and it makes this prop worth a small play.

Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Florida to lead by 7+ points at the end of the 1st quarter and win – Boosted from -125 to -110 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Florida will be trying to bounce back today against Tennessee after nearly beating Alabama last week. The Gators should ready for this game too, so a fast start is expected. The Volunteers are still just not a good team and should find themselves in an early hole. For that reason, backing this prop is worth a play.

Tampa Bay Rays and Chicago White Sox both to win – Boosted from +120 to +140 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Here we will need 2 teams to win their games. Our experts are confident in the Rays comfortably winning against the Marlins, but would lean to the Indians to cover the +1.5 run line against the White Sox. Because we like the Indians on the run line, a White Sox win still seems possible, making this a parlay worth backing.

Michigan State to score 30+ points and win – Boosted from +110 to +130 with PointsBet Sportsbook

Michigan State has started their season a perfect 3-0 and appear to be much better than what they were projected. Their game against Nebraska tonight looks pretty straightforward as well, which is why we like them to cover. For this prop, we will also need the Spartans to score at least 30+ points. The Cornhuskers have allowed 30+ points only once this season though, so avoiding this prop looks to be the best option.

Texas A+M to score 24+ points and win – Boosted from -120 to +100 with PointsBet Sportsbook

One of the bigger matchups of the day will see the Texas A&M Aggies take on the Arkansas Razorbacks. Both teams are off to flying starts, and here we will need the Aggies to win and score 24 points. Arkansas’ defense has been solid so far, which is why we like the under in this game. A&M has scored points against inferior competition, but struggled against the Colorado defense, so avoiding this prop looks to be the best move.

Colorado to score 7+ points in both halves – Boosted from +200 to +225 with PointsBet Sportsbook

We’re headed to the night cap for this prop and we will need Colorado to just score a touchdown in both halves. The Buffaloes are by no means a good team, but they are facing Arizona State. The Sun Devils do not have some elite defense, so backing this prop is certainly worth a play.
