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

Michigan State to lead at halftime and win the game – Boosted from +255 to +280 with DraftKings Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Michigan State to be leading Penn State at halftime and to ultimately win the game. The Spartans were exposed last week against Ohio State, and while Penn State is not as good as the Buckeyes, they are still a solid team. Our experts would actually lean to Penn State winning this game, therefore backing this prop should be avoided.

Alabama to win by 30+ points – Boosted from +255 to +320 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Auburn’s season has quickly fallen apart, and this prop will need Alabama to win the Iron Bowl by at least 30 points. With how Alabama’s defense has looked as of late, this is way too many points to win by. Our experts believe Auburn can keep this game within three touchdowns, so avoiding this prop looks to be the best option.

Oklahoma & Oklahoma State to combine for 55+ total points  – Boosted from +150 to +165 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This might be the second most important game of the day and here we will need points. Oklahoma has shown signs this season of a potent offense, but at the same time, their defense tends to be an issue. Oklahoma State is also an effective offense, and our experts do like the over in this game on the original total. Adding an extra touchdown to that still seems reasonable with how these teams can move the ball. For that reason, this prop looks to be worth a play.

Wisconsin to Win both the First Half & Game in Regulation vs Minnesota – Boosted from -140 to +110 with FanDuel Sportsbook

This prop will pretty much just need a straightforward win from the Wisconsin Badgers. They will need to win the first half and the game without going to overtime. Despite a few poor games on defense, the Badgers have not been allowing a ton of points overall this season. They have a good enough defense to keep Minnesota in check, therefore backing this prop looks to be worth a play.

Kevin Durant and Devin Booker to Each Score 25+ Points – Boosted from +195 to +300 with FanDuel Sportsbook

This prop is pretty straightforward as both Kevin Durant and Devin Booker will need to score at least 25 points. Durant is averaging 28.1 points per game, while Booker is averaging 23.6 points per game. Even though Booker is below the needed number, in a game of two of the best teams in the NBA, expect Booker to elevate his game, making this prop worth a play.

Pittsburgh Penguins, Detroit Red Wings & Calgary Flames All to Win – Boosted from +250 to +300 with FanDuel Sportsbook

This parlay will need 3 NHL teams to win their games. That being the Pittsburgh Penguins against the Montreal Canadiens, Detroit Red Wings against the Buffalo Sabres and Calgary Flames against the Winnipeg Jets. Our experts like both the Red Wings and Flames, while the Penguins should also be able to overpower the Canadiens. For that reason, backing this parlay looks to be worth a play.
