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.

Joel Embiid to record 45+ combined points & rebounds – Boosted from -105 to +105 with DraftKings Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Joel Embiid to record at least 45 combined points and rebounds. Embiid is averaging 29.3 points per game and 11.1 rebounds per game. During February, his average points per game has increased to 30.3 and his average rebounds per game has increased to 13. Playing the Milwaukee Bucks tonight could be a challenge, but if the 76ers are going to win this game, Embiid is going to need a huge performance. For that reason, this looks to be a prop worth backing.

Bam Adebayo & LaMelo Ball to combine for 70+ points/rebounds/assists – Boosted from -110 to +100 with DraftKings Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Bam Adebayo and LaMelo Ball to record at least 70 combined points, assists and rebounds. Adebayo is averaging 18.7 points per game, 10.2 rebounds per game and 3.5 assists per game. Ball is averaging 20.2 points per game, 7 rebounds per game and 7.4 assists per game. Both Adebayo and Ball have seen an increase in scoring in February, so they should be able to be productive tonight. For that reason, this prop looks to be worth a small play.

David Pastrnak to record 2+ points – Boosted from +250 to +300 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop needs Boston’s David Pastrnak to record at least 2 points tonight against the New York Islanders. Pastrnak has 45 points this season in 47 games, but has not scored a point in 3 straight games. He also has not recorded a point in the lone game against the Islanders this season. Because he in the midst of a point drought, avoiding this prop looks to be the best option.

Washington Capitals, New York Rangers & Toronto Maple Leafs all to win – Boosted from +270 to +370 with FanDuel Sportsbook

For this parlay, we will need 3 NHL teams to win their games tonight: the Washington Capitals against the Philadelphia Flyers, the New York Rangers against the Detroit Red Wings and the Toronto Maple Leafs against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Our experts like Toronto to win and like both Washington and New York to win in regulation. For that reason, this looks to be a parlay worth backing.

2 or more 3-point FGs made in the first 3 minutes of Milwaukee Bucks vs Philadelphia 76ers – Boosted from +270 to +370 with FanDuel Sportsbook

This prop needs there to be at least 2 made 3-pointers in the first 3 minutes of the game between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Philadelphia 76ers. The Bucks attempt the 4th-most 3-point field goals in the NBA and they have the 5th-best 3-point field-goal percentage. The 76ers are 29th in 3-point attempts, but 11th in 3-point field-goal percentage. Because both teams can knock down long-range shots at a high mark, this prop looks to be worth a small play.
