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.

Stephen Curry & Nikola Jokic to combine for 22+ 3-pointers + assists – Boosted from +130 to +150 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop will focus on Stephen Curry and Nikola Jokic tonight. We will need them to combine for 22+ 3-pointers + assists. That is an odd combination, but nonetheless, both guys have more than enough talent to reach this number. Jokic is averaging 7.1 assists per game, but just 1.5 3-pointers made. Curry is averaging 5.4 3-pointers made per game, but 5.9 assists per game. Even though the talent is there, Jokic does not tend to make many 3-point shots on a nightly basis, so avoiding this prop looks to be the best option.

Nikola Jokic to score 25+ points and the Nuggets to win – Boosted from +269 to +300 with PointsBet Sportsbook

This prop will need Nikola Jokic to score at least 25 points and the Nuggets will need to win the game. Jokic is averaging 25.8 points per game, however out experts would lean to a Warriors win because they have the more efficient offense. For that reason, this is likely a prop best to avoid.

Joel Embiid & Kevin Durant to combine for 60+ points – Boosted from +170 to +195 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop will need both Joel Embiid and Kevin Durant to have huge games tonight. They will need to combine for at least 60+ points. Durant is averaging 29.7 points per game, while Embiid is averaging 26.0 points per game. They each scored 30+ in the previous meeting, so another 30+ point game from both guys seems likely tonight. For that reason, this prop is worth a small play.

Pittsburgh to lead at half & Michigan State to win the game – Boosted from +700 to +800 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop will need the Pittsburgh Panthers to lead at halftime and Michigan State to win the game. The Panthers will be missing quarterback, Kenny Pickett, while Michigan State will be missing running back, Kenneth Walker III. Not having your quarterback is likely more of a blow compared to not having a running back, so this looks like a game that the Spartans should still be able to control. For that reason, this prop is likely best to avoid.

Manchester United to Win vs Burnley AND Both Teams to Score – Boosted from +190 to +250 with FanDuel Sportsbook

This prop will focus on thee lone EPL game this afternoon and will need Manchester United to beat Burnley. We will also need both teams to score in the game. Our experts like the under 2.5 goals in the game though, so while a Manchester United win seems to be a solid play, backing both teams to score might not be. For that reason, this is a prop that is likely best avoided.

Wisconsin and Michigan State to both win their bowl games – Boosted from +126 to +145 with PointsBet Sportsbook

For this parlay, we will need 2 college football teams to win their bowl games. That being the Wisconsin Badgers against the Arizona State Sun Devils and the Michigan State Spartans against the Pittsburgh Panthers. We love the Badgers tonight and like the Spartans to take care of business as well, even without their start running back. For that reason, this parlay looks to be worth a play.
