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

Hawks & 76ers to combine for 25+ 3-pointers – Boosted from +130 to +145 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop will need both the Atlanta Hawks and the Philadelphia 76ers to light it up from downtown. They will need to combine for 25+ 3-pointers made. However, it appears that Trae Young will miss another game due to COVID protocols, so the Hawks are going to be shorthanded yet again. If Young is indeed out, this is likely a prop that is best avoided.

Ja Morant & Stephen Curry to combine for 55+ points – Boosted from +130 to +150 with DraftKings Sportsbook

After being out for some time, Ja Morant is now fully back in action for the Grizzlies and tonight he will go up against the Warriors. We will need Morant and Stephen Curry to combine for at least 55+ points. Morant is averaging 23.7 points per game, while Curry is averaging 27.1 points per game. This should be a tight contest and with the Warriors missing plenty of guys, Curry may find himself having to do a bulk of their scoring. For that reason, this looks to be a prop worth backing.

Jimmy Garoppolo to record 300+ passing yards – Boosted from +360 to +475 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The 49ers will look to keep their momentum rolling as they face the Titans on Thursday Night football. For this prop, we will need Jimmy Garoppolo to throw for at least 300+ yards. He is averaging 244 passing yards per game and has gone over this number in 3 games this season. Even though the Titans’ secondary has had their issues, the 49ers might also try to establish the ground game, so avoiding this prop looks to be the best option.

Deebo Samuel to score 2+ touchdowns – Boosted from +550 to +700 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop will focus on Deebo Samuel and we will need him to score at least 2 touchdowns. Samuel has been one of the 49ers’ best weapons this season and as a result has 5 receiving touchdowns and 7 rushing touchdowns. He does only have multiple touchdowns in 2 games this season, but with how versatile he has become, he makes an excellent target for Jimmy Garoppolo, therefore backing this prop at these odds is worth a small play.

Deebo Samuel or D’Onta Foreman to Score the First Touchdown of the Game – Boosted from +300 to +400 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Going back to the Thursday Night game and here we will need either Deebo Samuel or D’Onta Foreman to score the first touchdown of the game. This is is pretty much a coin flip and it will likely come down to the play calling. We know Samuel is heavily involved in the offense, while Foreman has emerged as the lead back and should get most of the carries. Both guys can create explosive plays, therefore this prop looks to be worth a small play.

George Kittle to have 50+ receiving yards and the 49ers to win – Boosted from +100 to +150 with PointsBet Sportsbook

This prop is very straightforward as we will need George Kittle to record 50+ receiving yards and the 49ers to win the game. Kittle is one of Garoppolo’s favorite targets and as a result, he is averaging 77.3 receiving yards per game. He has gone over the 50-yard mark in 7 games this year as well. Pair that with our experts, who like the 49ers to win and cover and it makes this prop more than worth a play.
