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.

Mitch Marner & Auston Matthews to combine for 8+ shots on goal – Boosted from +140 to +160 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop focuses on the star players from the Toronto Maple Leafs, Mitch Marner and Auston Matthews. They will need to combine for at least 8+ shots on goal. They have done so in 7 of the 14 games they have played with each other this season. Facing the Rangers could make this a tough ask, but they are both good enough to test the New York goalie plenty, making this prop worth a small play.

Mac Jones to throw for 300+ yards – Boosted from +130 to +140 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Mac Jones will lead the New England Patriots tonight as they take on the Atlanta Falcons. Jones threw for only 198 yards last week in what was a 45-7 over the Browns. He has gone for more than 300 passing yards only once this season and with the Patriots likely to lean on their rushing attack, this prop is best avoided.

Tyrese Maxey & Aaron Gordon to combine for 35+ points – Boosted from +195 to +230 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop needs Tyrese Maxey and Aaron Gordon to combine for at least 35 points. Maxey is averaging 17.5 points per game this season, while Gordon is averaging just 12.6 points per game. Gordon tends to take a back seat to a guy like Nikola Jokic, so staying away from this prop looks to be the best option.

Paul George to have 40+ points/assists – Boosted from +275 to +320 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop requires Paul George to both score and assist at a very high rate. He is averaging 27 points per game, but only 5.1 assists per game. He has combined for 40 points/assists just twice this season in 14 games, so with the Clippers dealing with plenty of injuries, this prop looks best avoided.

Mac Jones to throw 1+ touchdowns in each half vs Falcons – Boosted from +140 to +180 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Here we will need Mac Jones to throw at least 1 touchdown in each half against the Falcons. Atlanta proved last week that their defense needs help as they were torched by the Cowboys. Jones managed to throw a touchdown in each half against the Browns, so facing a weaker defense should make this prop worth a play.

Damien Harris or Kyle Pitts to score the first touchdown – Boosted from +320 to +460 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Headed back to the Thursday Night game and here we will need Damien Harris or Kyle Pitts to score the first touchdown of the game. Harris to score first seems more likely because of the Patriots’ ability to run the ball this season. On the other side, if the Falcons can get close, Pitts is clearly one of their top targets with the loss of Calvin Ridley. For that reason, this prop looks to be worth a small play.
