We have put together a list of all of the day’s best odds boosts, which today are from DraftKings Sportsbook and FanDuel Sportsbook. Let’s take a look at whether or not they are worth playing:

Jayson Tatum to score 30+ points – Boosted from +120 to +135 with DraftKings Sportsbook

For this prop we will need Jayson Tatum to score at least 30 points tonight in the Celtics-Nets game. Tatum is averaging 25.7 ppg and even though he has had plenty of 30+ point games, this one might be better to stay away from. For one, this is the first game back from break and while the break was probably needed, it could take at least a game for the players to get back up to speed. Secondly, Tatum is averaging just 17.0 ppg against the Nets this season (2 games), so he has yet to have a great performance against them. For those reasons, this looks to be a prop to avoid.

Ja Morant & Jaren Jackson Jr. to combine for 60+ points + rebounds – Boosted from -110 to +105 with DraftKings Sportsbook

For this prop we will need Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr. to combine for at least 60 points and rebounds. Morant is averaging 26.8 points per game and 5.8 rebounds per game. Jackson Jr. is averaging 16.7 ppg and 6.0 rpg. In 3 games against the Timberwolves, Morant is averaging just 20.0 ppg and 4.7 rpg. Jackson Jr. is averaging 15.3 ppg and 5.7 rpg against Minnesota. Because there is a clear drop in production in this particular matchup, staying away from this prop looks to be the best option.

Alex Ovechkin & Chris Kreider to combine for 2+ goals – Boosted from +200 to +225 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop will need Alex Ovechkin and Chris Kreider to combine for 2 goals tonight. Ovechkin is 4th in the NHL in goals this season with 31, while Kreider is 3rd in goals with 33. In one game against the Rangers, Ovechkin has 2 goals, while Kreider has 1 goal against the Capitals in that lone outing. Both players are lethal in front of net, so this prop looks to be one that is worth backing.

Zach Parise to score a goal – Boosted from +400 to +450 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop will need Zach Parise to score a goal against the San Jose Sharks tonight. Parise is not much of a goal scorer, with just 6 on the season. His last game saw him score 2 goals against Seattle, and while the Sharks are not a great team, Parise still does not score enough to expect him to do so here. For that reason, this is probably a prop best to avoid.

Arsenal to win vs Wolverhamptson and both teams to score – Boosted from +310 to +400 with FanDuel Sportsbook

This prop will need Arsenal to win vs Wolverhampton and both teams to score. Arsenal just beat this Wolves team 1-0 a few weeks ago, but asking the Gunners to win again might be too much. The Wolves tend to play solid defense, which always keeps the draw in play. They have won 4 straight road Premier League games and have lost just 1 of their last 8 top-flight games. Our experts like a Wolves double-chance play, so avoiding this prop looks to be the best option.
