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

Golden State Warriors to win by 15+ points – Boosted to +260 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop needs the Golden State Warriors to beat the Los Angeles Lakers by at least 15 points tonight. It is kind of crazy to see this prop even available, considering that the Lakers have LeBron James, but the Lakers have just been that bad this season. The Lakers are coming off a 19-point loss to the Clippers, so backing them to struggle again looks to be worth a small play.

Be sure to check out all of our NBA picks for today’s action.

Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak to combine for 3+ points – Boosted from +150 to +175 with DraftKings Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak to combine for at least 3 points. Marchand has 54 points this season, 23 goals and 31 assists. He has yet to record a point in March through 2 games after 7 points in 5 games in February. Pastrnak on the other hand, has 56 points this season, 31 goals and 25 assists. He has at least 1 point in the last 7 games, and already has 3 goals in 2 games in March. With Pastrnak’s ability to score, he could easily get 3 points by himself, plus an assist to his teammate, Marchand, or vice versa makes this prop very reachable. For that reason, this prop looks to be worth a play.

Kevin Holland & Bryce Mitchell both to win – Boosted from +105 to +120 with DraftKings Sportsbook

For this parlay, we will need 2 UFC fighters to win their fights at UFC 272 tonight: Kevin Holland against Alex Oliveira and Bryce Mitchell against Edson Barboza. Oliveira has been very inconsistent, making Holland look like a great play. Our experts like this fight to end inside the distance, but with Holland’s ability, a win for him seems likely. As for Mitchell, his grappling has been elite, something that Barboza could struggle to defend. Our experts like Mitchell to win this fight, so backing this parlay looks to be a solid play.

Bryce Mitchell to win by submission or TKO/KO vs Edson Barboza – Boosted from +150 to +200 with FanDuel Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Bryce Mitchell to beat Edson Barboza at UFC 272 tonight by a finish. Most of his UFC fights have been wins by decision, but he has 9 submission wins in his career. Barboza does have a solid takedown defense, but Mitchell is good enough on the ground to counter that. Our experts already like Mitchell to win this fight on the money line, so a small play on a win by finish looks reasonable.
