His goal is to consistently give out winners and will put in the research to try and achieve this.

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. We’ll discuss whether or not they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.

Yankees to hit 3+ home runs – Boosted to +650 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The Yankees are coming off a two-game sweep over the Atlanta Braves and now will travel to Oakland looking to keep their win streak alive. They hit three home runs in Atlanta on Tuesday and while our experts like a lower-scoring game here, this looks to be worth a small play given how hot their lineup is at the moment.

Bryce Harper to record 2+ RBIs – Boosted to +475 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Tonight we will be focusing on Bryce Harper and the Philadelphia Phillies. Specifically, we are going to need Harper to record at least 2 RBIs. Zach Gallen will be on the mound for the Diamondbacks and his 4.59 ERA is a concern. He is also 1-7 on the season, so he has not exactly been great. Harper is coming off a game in which he had a home run and 2 RBIs, so backing this prop looks to be worth a small play.

Max Scherzer to record 10+ strikeouts – Boosted to +525 with DraftKings Sportsbook

After a wild game between the Dodgers and Padres last night, this prop will focus on Max Scherzer and the Dodgers. Both lineups have to be fatigued after that 16-inning game, so more strikeouts could be likely. Scherzer has 31 strikeouts with the Dodgers over 4 starts (21.1 innings) with the Dodgers, so backing this prop looks to be worth a small play.

Chris Sale to record 9+ strikeouts – Boosted to +350 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop will focus on Chris Sale and the Boston Red Sox as they take on the Minnesota Twins tonight. Sale has 13 strikeouts over 10.0 innings with Boston this season since returning from injury. It is worth noting that in both starts, he has only gone 5.0 innings. Plus, the Twins are struggling to generate much of anything at the plate, making this prop worth a small play.

Las Vegas Aces to lead after each quarter – Boosted to +110 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The Las Vegas Aces will face the Atlanta Dream tonight, a team that has lost 9 games in a row. The Aces are tied for first in the Western Conference and have mostly dominated this season. Atlanta is reeling and it is likely they will not have a chance in this game. Leading for the entire game is hard to do, but the Aces are just that much better than the Dream. For that reason, this looks to be worth a small play.

Chicago White Sox & New York Yankees both to win – Boosted to +330 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Here we will need two teams to win and our experts like both of them. The White Sox will be facing the Blue Jays this afternoon and with Carlos Rodon on the mound for Chicago, this looks to be one of the better plays on the MLB card. Later tonight the Yankees will play the Athletics and because they are so hot right now, we like them as a lean. For that reason, this parlay looks to be worth a play.

Royals vs Mariners: Both teams to score 1+ runs in the first 3 innings – Boosted to +180 with BetMGM Sportsbook

For this prop, all we will need is a few runs in the first 3 innings. Just 1 from each team will do the job. With both starting pitchers in this game having ERAs of over 4.22, look for some early struggles and back both sides to get on the board early.
