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

Philadelphia Flyers vs Pittsburgh Penguins: Both teams to score in the first period – Boosted from +150 to +180 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop will focus on the game between the Flyers and Penguins and will need each side to have a fast start. Both teams will need to score in the 1st period and each side looks to have the offense to be able to do this. Each side has scored in the 1st period in several games, but have also allowed plenty of goals in the 1st period. With 2 solid offenses, this prop looks to be worth a play.

Mike White to have 275+ passing yards – Boosted from +135 to +155 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The Jets are not a very good team, but Mike White was fantastic last week and should be able to at least have some success against the Colts. The Colts’ pass defense has not been the greatest all season, so backing this prop looks to be more than worth a play.

Jaylen Brown & Jimmy Butler to combine for 50+ points – Boosted from +150 to +170 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop will focus on both Jaylen Brown and Jimmy Butler. These guys will need to combine for at least 50+ points. They have done just that in 5 of the 8 games played, so facing each other should be a similar outcome. For that reason, backing this prop looks to be worth a play.

Pittsburgh Penguins & Vegas Golden Knights Both To Win – Boosted from +220 to +280 with FanDuel Sportsbook

This parlay will need 2 teams to win their games tonight. That being the Pittsburgh Penguins against the Philadelphia Flyers and the Vegas Golden Knights against the Ottawa Senators. Our experts would actually fade both of these teams, so avoiding this prop looks to be the best option.

Jets and Colts Each to Score 1+ Touchdowns in Each Half – Boosted from +210 to +250 with FanDuel Sportsbook

This prop will need both the Colts and Jets to score a touchdown in each half. This seems likely, given that the Jets’ defense has been a problem so far this season. At the same time, Mike White has seemed to bring new energy to the offense and the Colts’ defense has also had some issues. For that reason, this prop looks to be worth backing.

2 or More 3-Point Field Goals Made in the First 3 Minutes of Heat vs Celtics – Boosted from -120 to +110 with FanDuel Sportsbook

This prop will need a fast start from the Heat and Celtics. They will need to make a combine 2 three-pointers in the first 3 minutes of the game. Both sides have sharpshooters and will likely be looking to start quickly, so backing this prop is probably worth a small play.
