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

Ozzie Albies & Dansby Swanson to combine for 5+ total bases – Boosted from +125 to +155 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The Braves may have lost last night, but they have a great opportunity to bounce back tonight. Erick Fedde has been awful when facing Atlanta, considering that there hitters have a .353 average against him. Ozzie Albies has been hitting left and right and could even cover this by himself. Adding Dansby Swanson into the mix will only improve the likelihood that they combine for 5 total bases. For that reason, backing this prop looks to be worth a play.

Bryce Harper to record 2+ hits – Boosted from +160 to +230 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Philadelphia is coming off a series loss to Milwaukee and will look to bounce back against Colorado. At this point in the season, they must play well against teams like the Rockies if they are going to catch the Braves. Bryce Harper has been playing decently as of late, but only has 1 hit in each of his last 2 games. He will be facing Antonio Senzatela, who has not been great–but I would still look to stay away from this prop.

Yankees to hit 3+ home runs – Boosted from +230 to +290 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Tonight we will be looking power from the New York Yankees as we will need them to muster 3 home runs. They are facing José Berríos and the Toronto Blue Jays and while Berríos may not be elite, he has the ability to keep the ball inside the park. Berríos has allowed 18 home runs this season but only 1 in over the last 7 days. For that reason, this prop is best to avoid.

10+ points to be recorded in the 1st quarter of Dallas Cowboys vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Boosted from -152 to -135 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The NFL is officially back tonight as the Dallas Cowboys will take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Both offenses are expected to be good this season and with the return of Dak Prescott, look for the Cowboys to get out to a fast start. Tom Brady will be looking to prove he can still be elite at the age of 44, so backing this prop looks to be worth a play.

Philadelphia Phillies & New York Yankees Both to Win – Boosted from +175 to +230 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Here we will need 2 teams to win their games for this parlay. We do like the Philadelphia Phillies to beat the Colorado Rockies, but are not confident in the New York Yankees to beat the Toronto Blue Jays. The Blue Jays appear to have the better starting pitcher in their game, so avoiding this prop looks to be the best option.

Tom Brady to throw for 1+ yard vs Dallas Cowboys – Boosted to +100 with PointsBet Sportsbook

This prop is essentially free money. Brady is one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play and all we need here is for him to throw for 1 yard. This is a must play prop and except this to cash in the first couple of plays.

Chris Godwin and Mike Evans to each have 50+ receiving yards – Boosted from +145 to +165 with PointsBet Sportsbook

Going back to the opening night of the NFL and here we will need both Chris Godwin and Mike Evans to each have 50 yards receiving. Both of these guys are top receivers for the Buccaneers and should be targeted plenty of times by Tom Brady. Look out for deep balls as well, seeing that both Evans and Godwin have the ability to get behind the Cowboys’ secondary. For that reason, this looks to be worth a small play.

Dallas Cowboys vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Both teams to score 20+ points – Boosted from -118 to +100 with BetMGM Sportsbook

A final prop for the Cowboys and Buccaneers will need both teams to score at least 20+ points. We already like the over in this game and are expecting plenty of points. Dak Prescott is good enough to lead Dallas to at least a few scoring drives, while Brady will be looking for a strong start after their Super Bowl win. For that reason, this prop looks to be worth a play.
