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

Joey Gallo to hit a home run – Boosted to +390 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop will focus on the New York Yankees, and more specifically, Joey Gallo. Gallo will need to hit a home run tonight against the Athletics, though given his recent struggles, this looks unlikely. That is even knowing that Paul Blackburn is on the mound for Oakland. Blackburn has struggled over a few starts, but he should be able to keep Gallo at bay. For that reason, this is probably an odds boost best to avoid.

Colorado Rockies to hit 2+ home runs – Boosted to +145 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop focuses on the offense of the Colorado Rockies. The Rockies have been terrible this season, but still have some power in their lineup. The Dodgers will be starting Mitch White, who is settling into the big leagues, and has given up only 4 home runs across 38.1 innings. For that reason, look for White to keep the Colorado bats at bay and avoid this prop.

Yankees to record a run in the 1st inning – Boosted to +220 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Going back the Yankees, we will need them to score in the 1st inning. The Yankees are the hottest team in baseball right now and the top of their lineup has been seeing the ball well. With the struggling Blackburn starting for the A’s, backing New York to score early looks to be worth a small play.

Novak Djokovic to win 2021 US Open – Boosted to +100 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Novak Djokovic has pretty much dominated this season and taking him at this price for the US Open also looks to be a great play. Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer and even defending champion Dominic Thiem are all sidelined, making this a must-play at even money.

New England Patriots to win vs New York Giants and 36 or more points scored – Boosted to +250 with FanDuel Sportsbook

The New England Patriots have been playing lights-out in the preseason this year, easily dismantling both of their opponents so far. With a quarterback battle ongoing, expect the Patriots to be going all out again. We love the Patriots to cover in this game and even though we would lean to the under, this is a worthwhile play in the off chance that both teams are able to generate some offense.

Atlanta Falcons to win – Boosted to +250 with BetMGM Sportsbook

The Atlanta Falcons will finish up their preseason with a game against the Cleveland. The Falcons are known for being terrible in the preseason, so backing them is pretty much never worth it. The Browns should cruise this whether or not they field their starters. For that reason, this is a prop I would look to avoid.
