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

DeVonta Smith to score a touchdown – Boosted from +210 to +240 with DraftKings Sportsbook

DeVonte Smith had an excellent NFL debut, recording 71 yards receiving and had 1 touchdown. He looks to be emerging as Jalen Hurts’ favorite target and that should not change against the 49ers. The Eagles’ defense was better than expected in Week 1, so expect Philadelphia to get the ball plenty of times. With Hurts likely looking for Smith often, this prop looks to be worth a play.

Chase Claypool to score a touchdown – Boosted from +150 to +170 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Chase Claypool did not have the greatest Week 1 game for the Steelers, catching 3 targets for 45 yards. However, facing a Las Vegas defense that had some issues against Baltimore makes this prop worth a small play in a game that Claypool should be more involved in.

Shohei Ohtani to record 2+ RBIs – Boosted from +500 to +600 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Shohei Ohtani continues to make his claim for AL MVP and today we will need him to record at least 2 RBIs. He will also be on the mound, and facing Frankie Montas and the Oakland Athletics does not seem to be too tall of a task. With Ohtani’s power, a home run alone could cover this prop, making it worth a small play.

Both the Cardinals and Chiefs to win in Week 2 – Boosted from +125 to +170 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Here we will need 2 teams to win their week 2 games. The Arizona Cardinals will play the Minnesota Vikings and the Kansas City Chiefs will play the Baltimore Ravens. Our experts like a win and cover by both the Chiefs and Cardinals, so backing them both to win looks to be worth a play.

Justin Herbert to throw for 2 touchdowns and the Chargers to win vs the Cowboys – Boosted from +105 to +140 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Justin Herbert had a decent game in Week 1, but turned the ball over a few too many times. For this prop, we will need him to throw for 2 touchdowns and for the Chargers to beat the Cowboys. Dallas’ defense showed plenty of holes in their Week 1 game and our experts like Los Angeles to win, so backing this prop is certainly worth a play.

Melvin Gordon to record 50+ rushing yards and the Broncos to win – Boosted from +105 to +125 with PointsBet Sportsbook

Melvin Gordon ran all over the New York Giants last week, rushing for 101 yards and a touchdown. Today the Broncos will take on Jacksonville Jaguars, who did not look good at all against the Houston Texans last week. Our experts like the Broncos to win pretty easily, while Gordon will need only 50 yards rushing. For that reason, this looks to be worth a play.

Christian McCaffrey to record 100+ total yards and 1+ touchdown – Boosted from -135 to -115 with PointsBet Sportsbook

The Carolina Panthers will look to lean on Christian McCaffrey this week as they take on the New Orleans Saints. McCaffrey recorded 187 total yards in Week 1, but failed to score a touchdown. That likely changes today as the Panthers know they will need to rely on him heavily. For that reason, this looks to be a prop worth playing.
