Best sportsbook promotions and odds boosts for Sunday: MLB, CONCACAF Gold Cup and the Olympics
We have put together a list of all of the day’s best odds boosts, which happen to be from DraftKings Sportsbook, PointBet Sportsbook, FanDuel Sportsbook, and BetMGM Sportsbook today. We’ll discuss whether or not they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.
Xander Bogaerts to record 2+ hits – Boosted to +290 with DraftKings Sportsbook
With a win tonight, the Boston Red Sox will pass the Tampa Bay Rays for first place in the AL East. For this odds boost, we will be looking for Xander Bogaerts to have a multi-hit game. He is batting .309 on the season and has 3 hits in this series so far. He will be facing Shane McClanahan, who has been solid this year, however I would still look to ride the hot bat of Bogaerts and would consider this to be a small play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Kris Bryant to record a hit & an RBI – Boosted to +270 with DraftKings Sportsbook
Having just been traded to the Giants, Kris Bryant will look to begin his career in San Francisco in a big way. The Giants will be facing Luis Garcia and the Houston Astros. Garcia has a solid 3.19 ERA, but Bryant is more than capable of taking advantage. With some solid bats in front of him, Bryant should have at least one opportunity to drive in a run, so backing this play is worth a small play.

Rays vs. Red Sox: Each team to record at least 1 hit in the 1st inning – Boosted to +240 with DraftKings Sportsbook
Both of these lineups have some studs at the top, making it likely that there will be at least a few 1st inning hits. It is not like Nick Pavetta is the most consistent pitcher either, plus Shane McClanahan can just be decent at times. With both sides having strong lineups, look for this to be a play worth backing. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
USA (Women) to score 90+ points vs France (Women) – Boosted to +160 with DraftKings Sportsbook
The USA women’s basketball team will play their third game against France and are expected to win without too much issue. Team USA is averaging 83.5 points per game over their two games, so I am not super confident they will be able to reach 90 here. Team France is also only allowing 66 points per game so far, making this an odds boost I would look to avoid. Be sure to check out all our coverage for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
USWNT to Advance to Finals and Score 2+ Team Goals in Regulation Time vs Canada – Boosted to +150 with FanDuel Sportsbook
After a rather rocky group stage, Team USA is in a great position to advance to the Gold Medal match. They will be playing Canada, but have the firepower to score multiple times here and win. Both teams won their quarterfinals match in penalties, and even though Canada did not allow a goal to Brazil, Team USA looks to have found their offense. For that reason, this prop looks to be worth a small play. Be sure to check out all our coverage for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
USA to lift the trophy vs Mexico – Boosted to +135 with BetMGM Sportsbook
The USA men might not be playing their best 11 players, but they have still managed to make it to the Gold Cup Final. Their defense has been the side of the ball that has stood out, allowing just 1 goal throughout the entire tournament. However, Mexico has plenty of talent on their side, making a USA win not a confident play. Our experts like Mexico to win the title, so this might be a play best to avoid. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Sue Bird to have 7+ assists and the US Women to win vs France – Boosted to +110 with PointsBet Sportsbook
Sue Bird has really struggled to score through two games in the Olympics, but her assists have been game changers. She is averaging 9.5 assists through the two games, making it likely she has at least 7 against France on Sunday morning. Team USA has also been pretty dominant in general, making this prop worth a play. Be sure to check out all our coverage for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
Alex Morgan to score and Team USA to win in 90 minutes – Boosted to +250 with PointsBet Sportsbook
As good as Alex Morgan has been over the course of her career with the USA, she has only managed to score once so far in the Olympics. This was a goal in the game against a rather weak New Zealand side that Team USA beat 6-1. Canada’s defending as been solid as well, so I expect Morgan to struggle to find the back of the net. For that reason, I would look to avoid this prop. Be sure to check out all our coverage for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
