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

Logan Webb to record 7+ strikeouts – Boosted from +300 to +350 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The Giants will be playing the Padres this afternoon to wrap up their series. Here we will need Logan Webb from the Giants to have a dominating performance. At least in terms of his strikeout numbers. Webb has a K/9 of 9.59, so he should be in position for a high-strikeout game. The Padres’ offense has been struggling recently, so backing this prop is worth a play.

70+ total points scored in Marshall vs Appalachian State – Boosted from +165 to +190 with DraftKings Sportsbook

In the lone college football game tonight, the Appalachian State Mountaineers will host the Marshall Thundering Herd. Points are to be expected in this game and our experts already lean to the over. The Mountaineers have a lethal rushing attack, while the Thundering Herd should be able to have some success through the air. For that reason, backing this prop is worth a small play.

Sam Darnold to record 300+ passing yards – Boosted from +210 to +240 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Starting with the Carolina Panthers’ quarterback for tonight’s game, we will need Sam Darnold to have at least 300+ passing yards. He reached this mark last week with 305 and was close in Week 1 with 279 yards. Facing a Houston defense should give him plenty of opportunities for some big plays, so backing this prop is worth a play.

One or more touchdowns scored in each quarter of Texans vs Panthers – Boosted from +260 to +320 with FanDuel Sportsbook

This prop might rely heavily on the Carolina Panthers since the Houston Texans will be starting a backup quarterback. Houston saw at least 1 touchdown in every quarter in their Week 2 game, and the Panthers’ offense looks strong enough to continue that trend. The Texans are sure to score some as well, so backing this prop looks to be worth a play.

Philadelphia Phillies and Baltimore Orioles both to win – Boosted from +155 to +190 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Here we will need both teams to win their games. Our experts love the Phillies against the lowly Pirates, while the Orioles also have a winnable game against the Rangers. Backing the Orioles is still risky, so only look to back this parlay as a small play.

Brandin Cooks to have 50+ receiving yards and 1 touchdown – Boosted from +155 to +190 with PointsBet Sportsbook

Here we will need Brandin Cooks to have 50+ receiving yards and to also score a touchdown. Even with a backup quarterback, this looks to be a decent play. Cooks has recorded 50+ receiving yards in both game and found the end-zone in Week 2. The Panthers’ defense has been good so far, but Cooks looks to be the number one target for the Texans, so backing this prop is worth a small play.

Christian McCaffrey to have 125+ total yards and 1 total touchdown – Boosted from +110 to +130 with PointsBet Sportsbook

Christian McCaffrey has already done a lot for this Panthers’ offense and here we will need the same. He has had over 125 total yards and found the end zone last week. Against this Houston defense, this prop looks to be worth a play.
