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.

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

Diamondbacks vs Padres: Over 1.5 home runs in the first 3 innings – Boosted to +450 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Looking for plenty of power in the first couple of innings in this game and we likely have the lineups to see just that. At least from a Padres perspective, they have a pretty stacked lineup. Facing Madison Bumgarner will only help their case, as he has not been sharp this season. Blake Snell has not been great either and even the Diamondbacks have enough power where they could hit a home run early. Given that both pitchers have had struggles, this prop looks to be worth a play.

Walker Buehler to record 10+ strikeouts – Boosted to +390 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Asking any pitcher to record 10+ strikeouts in a game is tough, but Walker Buehler has been good enough to suggest that this is going to happen. He has 144 strikeouts in 141.2 innings. The Angels do not have a particularly strong lineup right now, so I would expect a ton of swings and misses. For that reason, this looks to be worth a small play.

Jose Abreu to hit a home run – Boosted to +290 with DraftKings Sportsbook

We will be looking for the power from the White Sox first baseman, Jose Abreu to shine tonight as they take on the Cubs. The Cubs will be starting Zach Davies and he has a ERA of 4.79. Abreu homered in Saturday’s game and against a questionable pitcher, backing this as a small play is worth it.

Dylan Cease to Record 2+ Strikeouts in the 1st Inning vs Cubs – Boosted to +160 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Another Cubs vs White Sox prop here and this one will need Dylan Cease to strikeout at least 2 Cubs in the first inning. Cease has 149 strikeouts in 114.2 innings and with a depleted lineup for the Cubs, this looks to be worth a play.

White Sox vs Cubs: No runs in the first 3 innings – Boosted to +800 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Going back to the same Cubs and White Sox game, here we will be looking for no runs in the first 3 innings. Dylan Cease has been pretty solid for the White Sox and with a somewhat depleted lineup, the Cubs are not likely to get much going offensively. As for the White Sox, they have plenty of offensive threats, but do not always start fast. Zach Davies might not be great, but he has enough in the tank to suggest he can get through the lineup the first time around with any damage. For that reason, this is likely worth a small play.

Tim Anderson to get a hit and the White Sox to win – Boosted to -110 with PointsBet Sportsbook

Once again going back to the Cubs vs White Sox and here we will be needing a hit from Tim Anderson and a White Sox win. Anderson might only be 1 for 10 in this series, but against Zach Davies, I like his chances to record a hit. Pair that with the fact that our experts love the White Sox and this looks to be a decent play.

Braves to score 5+ runs – Boosted to -110 with BetMGM Sportsbook

The Braves’ offense had been red hot, but cooled off yesterday with only 2 runs. Today they will face Patrick Corbin, who has not been good this season to say the least. His 6-10 record and 5.74 ERA backs that up, so asking the Braves to bounce back and score 5+ runs is worth a play.

Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

LAFC & LA Galaxy both to win in regulation – Boosted to +215 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Here we are going to need both Los Angeles teams to win in their respective games. Our experts love the Galaxy, but have some issues with Los Angeles FC. LAFC will be playing the San Jose Earthquakes and they have been good enough to suggest a draw could be likely. For that reason, this looks to be a play worth avoiding.
