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

Will Smith to hit a home run – Boosted to +370 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Here we are going to need a home run from Will Smith against the Mets. Smith has played very well against New York this season. In 5 games against them, he is 6 for 19 and has 3 home runs. Marcus Stroman will start for the Mets and even though he has been solid, Smith’s track record against New York is strong enough to play this prop small.

Jose Ramirez to record an extra base hit – Boosted to +150 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Jose Ramirez will be the player in focus tonight as we will need him to get an extra base hit. He does have 29 home runs on the season, so that is certainly an option, or just a double. Jose Suarez has had his trouble for the Angels this season, so backing this prop looks to be worth a small play.

Bryce Harper to record 2+ RBIs – Boosted to +625 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The Phillies are looking for any kind of consistency right now as they have fallen well behind the Braves in the NL East.  Here we are going to need Bryce Harper to have a huge game. Harper had 2 hits in last night’s game, though did not record an RBI. The game prior, he did have 2 RBI’s, so he is seeing the ball well at the moment. Craig Stammen will be on the mound for the Padres, and he has been decent. Still, this may be worth a play because of the success Harper has been having recently.

Shohei Ohtani to hit a home run – Boosted to +200 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Going back to the Sunday Night baseball game and here we will focus on Shohei Ohtani. He will of course need to hit a home run for this prop, and with the amount of power he has shown, this is likely to happen. Ohtani has 40 home runs this season and it is not like the Indians has an elite pitcher on the  mound. For that reason, this is worth a small play.

Atlanta Braves & Toronto Blue Jays Both to Win – Boosted to +170 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Looking for 2 teams to win in some of the early games, and our experts love both the Braves and Blue Jays. The Braves are one of the hottest teams in the sport right now and the Blue Jays are playing a rather weak Tigers team. For that reason, this looks to be worth a play.

Freddie Freeman to Record a Hit and Atlanta Braves to Win – Boosted to +140 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Going back to the Braves game and looking a Freddie Freeman hit prop plus an Atlanta win. The Braves winning is already one of our favorite play today and Freeman to record a hit is more than likely going to happen against a poor Orioles team.

Houston Astros, Milwaukee Brewers & St. Louis Cardinals All to Win – Boosted to +300 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Another parlay, this time we will need 3 teams to win. Our experts love the Astros and lean towards the Cardinals, but predict a Nationals win against the Brewers. For that reason, this looks to be a parlay best to avoid.

San Francisco 49ers to Win and 35 or more Points scored – Boosted to +210 with FanDuel Sportsbook

The 49ers may be playing their starters for a little while, but that does not mean we should expect a ton of points. Their defense also held the Chiefs to 19 points last week, so we should expect the same against the Chargers. With most of the preseason games having stayed under this year, avoiding this prop looks to be the best option.
