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.

No touchdowns in the 1st Quarter of Iowa vs Iowa State – Boosted from +260 to +300 with DraftKings Sportsbook

An in-state rivalry between Iowa and Iowa State is one of the marquee games of the day and it should be very entertaining. Both sides look to have solid defenses, making no touchdown over the first 15 minutes seem likely. Our experts would also lean to this game staying under, so backing this prop looks to be worth a play.

USC to score 3+ touchdowns in the first half – Boosted from +140 to +175 with DraftKings Sportsbook

USC will take on their first PAC-12 opponent tonight in Stanford. The Cardinal were easily defeated last week by Kansas State and do not look to stand much of a chance against the Trojans here. USC is expected to get off to a fast start, needing to score 3 touchdowns in the first half. They have plenty of playmakers on the offensive side of the ball, and defense for Stanford did not look great in week 1. For that reason, this odds boost looks to be worth a small play.

Pete Alonso or Anthony Rizzo to hit a home run – Boosted from +170 to +200 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The Yankees and Mets will meet again on Saturday night and we will need either Pete Alonso or Anthony Rizzo to hit a home run. Both guys obviously have plenty of power and with two average pitchers starting, this looks to be a play worth backing.

Ohio State to win by 19-24 points – Boosted from +450 to +600 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The Buckeyes started slowly last week, but ended up winning with no problem against Minnesota. They are just over a 2-touchdown favorite here against Oregon and look to have the quality to cover this number. It is actually more likely that they win by more, so asking them win win by about 3 scores looks to be a solid play.

Philadelphia Phillies, Milwaukee Brewers & Tampa Bay Rays All To Win – Boosted from +260 to +370 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Here we will need 3 teams to win their games to cash this parlay. Our experts like both Tampa Bay and Milwaukee to find wins but are not confident in Philadelphia. The Phillies have been struggling as of late, so avoiding this prop looks to be the best play.

Over 24.5 games in Emma Raducanu vs Leylah Fernandez – Boosted from +130 to +180 with FanDuel Sportsbook

A surprising final will take place on the women’s side of the US Open draw between two teenagers. Both ladies have played extremely well throughout this tournament and this looks like it may be a long match. For that reason, backing the over 24.5 games looks to be worth a small play.

Colorado to score first – Boosted from +175 to +200 with PointsBet Sportsbook

The Colorado Buffaloes have a tough game this afternoon against what is supposed to be a very good Texas A&M team. So, even though the Aggies are a large favorite, asking the Buffaloes to score first is certainly reasonable. Colorado was solid on the ground in week 1, and they know they need to control the clock to have a chance. This might come down to who gets the ball first, but backing the Buffaloes to score first looks to be worth a small play.
