Since graduating from Davidson (The College That Stephen Curry Built), I have been writing about sports--just about any and all you can think of!--and coaching tennis in Atlanta, Ga. Beyond the four major sports, I am an avid tennis fan and cover the ATP Tour on a daily basis. If I'm not busy writing, you can generally find me on a tennis court or traveling the world wherever a sporting event takes me.

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.

Cowboys and Eagles to combine for 50+ points – Boosted from +145 to +180 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The Cowboys and Eagles need to exceed the actual over/under for Saturday night’s NFC East showdown (42.5) by more than a touchdown for this play to hit. Our NFL expert does like the over on 42.5, but asking the two teams to surpass it by a wide margin is probably too much when you are getting less than +200 odds. Neither team is playing for anything more than a marginal improvement in playoff seeding, so we could see some backup quarterbacks on the field in the second half – and maybe even before the second half. As such, this boost looks like one to avoid.

Heat and Suns to combine for 30+ three-pointers – Boosted from +340 to +400 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Can Miami and Phoenix dial long distance at least 30 times on Sunday? Our NBA expert is taking the under in this game (total set at 216.5), which would suggest that three-pointers will not be being poured in left and right. As such, you probably shouldn’t bite on this odds boost. Keep in mind that the Suns are without Deandre Ayton and Jae Crowder. Sure that means they will have to score from the perimeter, but at the end of the court the Heat will just pound the ball down low to take advantage of the defensive holes.

Giannis Antetokounmpo or LaMelo Ball to record a triple-double – Boosted from +320 to +370 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Antetokounmpo has recorded two triple-doubles in his last eight games. He has produced three double-doubles in the last four. If he can just get to the 10-assist mark, it would be pretty much a lock. The Greek Freak’s three most recent assist totals are 10, 7, and 9; he is consistently hovering around double-digits. Charlotte is allowing opponents to assist on 65.2 percent of made baskets over its last three contests, so you have to like Antetokounmpo’s chances. Meanwhile, in Ball’s last four games he once came within 1 assist and another time came within 2 rebounds of a triple-double. This is a fun prop…and also one worth playing.

Chiefs to win and Darrel Williams to score a touchdown – Boosted from +125 to +160 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Our NFL expert not only likes Kansas City to win on Saturday afternoon but also to cover a -10 spread against Denver. So the question is: can Williams find the endzone? He is a -115 anytime touchdown scorer, and with this boost you are basically getting him at +160 – under the assumption that the Chiefs also win. All in all, the value on this boost is such that it has to be taken.
