Best sportsbook promotions and odds boosts for Sunday: MLB Picks
We have put together a list of all of the day’s best boosts, which happen to be from DraftKings Sportsbook, FanDuel Sportsbook and BetMGM Sportsbook today, and whether they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.
Aaron Nola to record 8+ strikeouts – Boosted to +130 with DraftKings Sportsbook
Aaron Nola may have struggled against the Yankees recently, but his strikeout numbers are still pretty impressive. He has 131 strikeouts over 106.2 innings, giving him a K/9 of 11.1. When the Braves are not scoring 15 runs in a game, they tend to strikeout a decent amount, so this prop looks to be a worth a small play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Mets and Yankees both to win – Boosted to +320 with DraftKings Sportsbook
Looking for the Mets and Yankees to win today, though we are not very confident in this happening. Mainly because of the Mets, who will face the Toronto Blue Jays. The Mets have Rich Hill on the mound and because the Blue Jays know him well, we believe they will be able to win the series. For that reason, I would look to avoid this prop. Be sure to check out all our MLB picks for today’s action.
Shohei Ohtani to record 2+ hits – Boosted to +200 with DraftKings Sportsbook
It is pretty obvious that Shohei Ohtani has been a superstar this season. He leads the league in home runs and is coming off a multi-hit game against the Twins last night. This afternoon, Bailey Ober will be on the mound for the Twins, so I expect another big performance from Ohtani. Ober has an ERA of 5.45, therefore backing this prop looks to be a solid play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Lance Lynn to record a win – Boosted to +270 with DraftKings Sportsbook
For this odds boost, we are basically going to need the Chicago White Sox to win. Not only win, but hold a lead when Lance Lynn exits the game and hold that lead. Our experts actually lean to the Brewers in this matchup because Brandon Woodruff has been dominant this entire season. For that reason, this is an odds boost I would look to avoid. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Christian Yelich to hit a home run – Boosted to +240 with DraftKings Sportsbook
Christian Yelich will need to hit a home run tonight for this odds boost, but going up against Lance Lynn and the Chicago White Sox is going to be tough. Lynn has allowed 10 home runs this entire season over 97.2 innings pitched, so this is probably a prop that is better to avoid. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Atlanta Braves to score first vs the Philadelphia Phillies – Boosted to +100 with BetMGM Sportsbook
The Braves will have the tall task of facing Aaron Nola and the Phillies this afternoon, but they did put up 15 runs yesterday. Nola struggled in his first start back against the Yankees, so this prop looks to be worth a small play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Tampa Bay Rays, Chicago Cubs & LA Dodgers all to Win – Boosted to +400 with FanDuel Sportsbook
Here we will need three teams to win their respective games and our experts like the chances of each of these teams. We especially love the Tampa Bay Rays, who are 6-0 against Cleveland this season. The Dodgers play a weak Rockies side and the Cubs play a worse Diamondbacks side. For that reason, this looks to be an odds boost worth taking advantage of.
