Matthew has been with Pickswise for a while now, covering a wide variety of sports. His main passions are college football and UFC, and those are the sports he has covered the most. Matthew uses a variety of methods to handicap games, including stats, trends, injuries, and situational factors. His goal is to consistently give out winners and will put in the research to try and achieve this.

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

Kris Bryant or Matt Olson to hit a home run – Boosted to +200 with DraftKings Sportsbook

For this prop, we will be looking for 1 of 2 guys to hit a home run. Kris Bryant from the Giants or Matt Olson from the Athletics. The Giants do have Kevin Gausman on the mound and his record of 12-5 and ERA of 2.40 is more than impressive. Still, Olson has 31 home runs this season and has proved he can hit a home run at any time. Bryant has just 18 home runs and will be facing Sean Manaea. He has not been quite as good, so backing this prop looks to be worth a small play.

Mets to hit 2+ home runs – Boosted to +170 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop will need the Mets to show their power and to hit at least 2 home runs as a team, though they will be facing Max Scherzer, who is more than capable of shutting any team down. The Mets’ offense seems to have fallen off recently, so avoiding this prop looks to be the best play.

Lions to win the first half & Steelers to win the game – Boosted to +750 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The NFL preseason resumes tonight with several games, but the Lions and Steelers will be the focus for this prop. Pittsburgh has won both of their preseason games thus far and went into halftime trailing in both. With a new head coach, we should expect the Lions to come out strongly to try, but they may falter late once their backups come in. For that reason, this prop looks to be worth a small play at this price.

Jets to score on their first offensive possession vs Packers – Boosted to +140 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The Jets and Packers will face off today in preseason action and this prop involves the Jets’ offense. They will need to score on their first offensive possession. They managed to do just that in the game last week and with Zach Wilson under center, he looks good enough to lead the Jets down the field for another early score. For that reason, this prop looks to be worth a small play.

Toronto Blue Jays & St Louis Cardinals both to win – Boosted to +130 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Here we will need 2 teams to win and our experts like the Cardinals as a lean. as for the Blue Jays, we would lean to the Tigers on the run line, but a win for the Blue Jays still seems very likely. For that reason, this looks to be a parlay worth backing.

Manny Pacquiao to win by points or decision vs Yordenis Ugas – Boosted to +160 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Manny Pacquiao will return to the ring tonight after a two-year hiatus to face Yordenis Ugas. This will also be a fight for the welterweight title. At 42 years old, it is safe to safe that Pacquiao does not have the same power. He has knocked out just 1 of his last 10 opponents, but still has impeccable movement speed. For that reason, Pacquiao looks to be a good play to win by decision.

Raiders vs Rams: Either team to win by 7+ points – Boosted to -110 with BetMGM Sportsbook

Given the fact that our experts like the Raiders to cover, this prop certainly looks to be worth a play. The Rams are not going to play Matthew Stafford and their backups are not exactly ones to trust here. The Raiders have both Derek Carr and Marcus Mariota available and for that reason, this looks to be worth a shot.
