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.

There are plenty of sports taking place today including the Copa America Final, the start of the Gold Cup, a full UFC card and a big MLB baseball slate. There are plenty of promotions and boosts on offer from sportsbooks, but which ones should you look to capitalize on?

We’ve put together a list of all of the day’s best boosts, which happen to be from DraftKings Sportsbook, and PointsBet Sportsbook, and whether they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.

Javier Baez to record 2+ hits (Boosted to +240), DraftKings Sportsbook

Javier Baez made his return to the Cubs lineup last night to the tune of a 1 for 5 night and three strikeouts. This was after he was scratched from the lineup a few games before with a thumb injury. He did not as sharp in that game last night and we think his struggles could continue tonight as the Cubs will face Kwang-Hyun Kim and the St Louis Cardinals. For that reason, avoiding this odds boost looks to be the best play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Red Sox to lead after the 7th inning (Boosted to +100), DraftKings Sportsbook

The Red Sox are actually one of our favorite plays tonight, so asking them to lead late in the game is intriguing. Boston will play the Phillies, but with Matt Moore on the mound for Philadelphia, we believe this could be a comfortable win for the Red Sox. Since we love them tonight, backing them to lead after seven innings looks like a solid play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Cubs and White Sox both to win (Boosted to +190), DraftKings Sportsbook

Another Windy City special as we will be looking for both the White Sox and Cubs to win tonight. The White Sox are more likely to win as they are up against the Orioles. The Cubs are a little tougher to back because they play the Cardinals. Our experts actually like the Cardinals in that game because Zach Davies is too inconsistent on the mound. Because of the hesitation to back the Cubs, this odds boost is probably best to avoid. Be sure to check out our picks on the side and total for all of tonight’s MLB matchups.

Lionel Messi and Neymar both to score (Boosted to +1000), DraftKings Sportsbook

This might be more of a longshot, but backing both Argentina’s Messi and Brazil’s Neymar to score in the Copa America Final looks to be a decent play. We know they are both world-class players and have both been in fine form during the course of this tournament. For that reason, this odds boost looks to be worth a small play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Under 2.5 rounds in both Sean O’Malley vs. Kris Mountinho and Tai Tuivasa vs. Greg Hardy (Boosted to +150), DraftKings Sportsbook

Sean O’Malley is known for his high-flying finishes and as a result, we actually like him to win this fight in the first-round. Obviously that fits what we need here for this odds boost. Greg Hardy on the other hand, has not looked great at times in the UFC and his opponent, Tai Tuivasa, has plenty of power to end this fight rather quickly. For that reason, this is an odds boost that looks worth a play. Be sure to check out our previews for the full UFC 264 card.

Argentina to lift the cup vs. Brazil (Boosted to +180), PointsBet Sportsbook

Despite Neymar’s claim that he wanted to play Argentina in the Final, we are confident Messi and his team can lift the trophy on Saturday. Brazil had a relatively easy draw, while Argentina is on a 19-game unbeaten streak. Our experts like Argentina to be the better side here, so backing them to win the title at this price looks to be a solid play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
