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

Cincinnati to win every quarter – Boosted from +250 to +300 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop will focus on the Cincinnati Bearcats have a thoroughly dominant performance against SMU. They will need to win every quarter. Even though they are undefeated, the Bearcats have struggled in recent weeks to put away games. SMU has a potent passing game, so we do believe it can keep this game close. For that reason, it would not be shocking to see Cincy struggle early, making this prop one to stay away from.

Purdue to win by 10+ points – Boosted from +150 to +175 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The Purdue Boilermakers have a tough test today on the hardwood, as they are set to take on the North Carolina Tar Heels. The Boilermakers have the size advantage and have plenty of role players who can make a real impact. Our experts like the Boilermakers to win and cover, so asking them to win by double-digits looks to be worth a small play.

New York Islanders to score first & win – Boosted from +160 to +185 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop will need the New York Islanders to score first and to win against the Calgary Flames. The Islanders have been a below average team this season, while the Flames appear to be one of the better teams in the NHL right now. Because of the inconsistent play from New York, this prop is probably best to stay away from.

Seth Curry to make 4+ 3 pointers – Boosted from +225 to +265 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop will need Seth Curry to make at least 4 three-pointers tonight. Curry is averaging 2.33 three-pointers made per game, but only has had 3 games with at least 4 made threes. For that reason, staying away from this prop looks to be the best option.

3+ Threes Made in the First 3 Minutes of New York Knicks vs Houston Rockets – Boosted from +150 to +200 with FanDuel Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need there to be at least 3 three-pointers made in the first 3 minutes of the game between the New York Knicks and the Houston Rockets. Considering how bad the Rockets have been this season (1-14), it is very hard to trust them to help with this prop. The Knicks shoot 36.4% as a team from downtown, but the Rockets shoot 31.7%. There is more than likely going to be more misses early on than makes, so avoiding this prop looks to be the best play.

Tampa Bay Lightning, Toronto Maple Leafs & Edmonton Oilers All to Win – Boosted from +220 to +300 with FanDuel Sportsbook

For this parlay, we will need 3 NHL teams to win their games tonight: the Tampa Bay Lightning (vs the New Jersey Devils), the Toronto Maple Leafs (vs the Pittsburgh Penguins), and the Edmonton Oilers (vs the Chicago Blackhawks). We love the Maple Leafs to win and like the Lightning to win, as well. As for the Oilers, they should be able to easily beat the struggling Blackhawks. Thus backing this parlay is worth a play.
