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

First off, we’ll have some plays from Pickswise’s newest analyst The Promo Guy (@ThePromoGuy123). Every day you can find his recommendations and analysis exclusively on Pickswise. Let’s dive in:

50% profit boost CBB promo – Montana State ML +125 (Caesars)

NFL SGP profit boost – Taysom Hill under 219.5 passing yards, Dak Prescott over 274.5 passing yards, Cowboys -6.5 (DraftKings)

NHL parlay insurance: Bet $25 on a 4+ leg NHL parlay (minimum -200 per leg) and get your money back if you lose exactly 1 leg (FanDuel)

CBB parlay insurance: Bet $25 on a 4+ leg CBB parlay (minimum -200 per leg) and get your money back if you lose exactly 1 leg (FanDuel)

Odds boost: Cowboys -2.5 boosted to +100 (FanDuel)

No score first drive in Cowboys @ Saints boosted to -110 from -165 (DraftKings)

Using Caesars first drive props and assuming a FG attempt is made 100% of the time, Cowboys score 44.1% of the time and Saints score 36.3% of the time on their first drives. Assuming 50% chance each team starts with the ball that makes fair odds around -148 and the EV ~+13.96%. This is relatively in line with +125/-165 two way line on DraftKings.

TNF anytime touchdown scorer promo: Bet $25+ on an anytime TD scorer for TNF, get $5 back for every touchdown scored by that player’s team if it loses (Barstool) – Ezekiel Elliott +105

-That’s it for The Promo Guy.

If you’re still hungry for more sportsbook promotions and odds boosts, check out these plays from Pickswise analyst Matt Lowrimore:

Dak Prescott to record 325+ passing yards – Boosted from +205 to +260 with PointsBet Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Dak Prescott to record at least 325 passing yards. He is averaging 293.2 yards per game; however, facing the Saints’ defense should give him a boost here. The Saints’ defense is allowing 7.8 passing yards per attempt, so even though Prescott has only hit this number in 2 of the 10 games he has played, backing this prop still looks to be a decent play given the struggles of this defense.

Lonzo Ball & DeMar DeRozan to combine for 45+ points – Boosted from +270 to +320 with PointsBet Sportsbook

This prop will focus on Lonzo Ball and DeMar DeRozan to combine for at least 45 points. DeRozan is averaging 25.9 points, so a big game from him is likely. As for Ball, he is averaging 12.5 points per game. Despite the relatively low average, Ball has had plenty of games where he scored closer to 20 points. Facing an average New York Knicks team should allow both guys to have big games, so backing this prop looks to be worth a play.

Chris Paul to record 30+ Points & assists – Boosted from +130 to +150 with PointsBet Sportsbook

This prop will focus on Chris Paul in the Suns’ game tonight against the Detroit Pistons. Paul is averaging 14.5 points per game and 10.1 assists per game. Though this does not equal the number we need, Devin Booker has been ruled out for this game, which should allow Paul to take over. The Pistons are also one of the worst teams in NBA, so backing Paul to have a big game is worth a play.

Cowboys to Score in Every Quarter vs Saints – Boosted from +135 to +170 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Going back to the Thursday Night game between the Cowboys and Saints and here we will need the Cowboys to score in every quarter. Given the expected struggles from the Saints’ defense, this looks to be a decent play. The Cowboys have scored in every quarter in 6 of their 11 games, so backing the same here looks to be worth a small play.

Julius Randle to Score 20+ Points & New York Knicks to Win – Boosted from +250 to +300 with FanDuel Sportsbook

This prop will need Julius Randle to score at least 20 points against the Chicago Bulls. Randle is averaging 19.4 points per game, but has surpassed the 20-point mark in 9 games this season. Our experts also like the Knicks to win this game outright, so backing this prop looks to be worth a play.

Florida Panthers, Tampa Bay Lightning & Washington Capitals All to Win – Boosted from +210 to +300 with FanDuel Sportsbook

This parlay will need 3 NHL teams to win their games tonight. That being the Florida Panthers against the Buffalo Sabres, Tampa Bay Lightning against the St. Louis Blues and the Washington Capitals against the Chicago Blackhawks. Our experts love the Capitals, like the Panthers on the puck line and like the Lightning on the money line to take care of business. For that reason, this parlay is more than worth a play.
