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

Tyreek Hill to record 100+ receiving yards – Boosted from +180 to +205 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop will focus on Tyreek Hill tonight and we will need him to record at least 100+ receiving yards. He is averaging 79 yards per game this season and has gone over this number just 2 times this season. The last time he recorded 100+ receiving yards was back in October. The Chargers’ defense will likely provide more resistance than several of the teams Kansas City has faced recently, so avoiding this prop looks to be the best option.

60+ points scored in Chiefs vs Chargers – Boosted from +190 to +225 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Here we will need at least 60+ points to be scored in the game between the Chiefs and the Chargers. The Chiefs have seen only 3 games this season reach more than 60 points and with an improving defense, they should be able to do their part and keep the Chargers somewhat in check. We know the Chargers are a team that can also score, but avoiding this prop still looks to be the best option because of the defenses.

Patrick Mahomes to pass for 325+ yards – Boosted from +265 to +310 with DraftKings Sportsbook

For this prop, we will be focusing on Patrick Mahomes. He will need to throw for at least 325+ passing yards, a number he has reached in just 4 games this season. He is averaging 280.2 passing yards per game, so a good game, not a great game seems the most likely result. For that reason this looks to be another prop that is best to avoid.

Mikal Bridges & Bradley Beal to combine for 3+ 3-pointers made – Boosted from +100 to +115 with DraftKings Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Mikal Bridges and Bradley Beal to combine for 3+ 3-pointers. Beal is averaging 1.5 3-pointers made per game, while Bridges is averaging 1.3 3-pointers made per game. Even though this does not equal the number we need, this is a prop they should easily hit. Either of these players could hit this number by themselves, it is just a matter of how many attempts they will get. Regardless, both guys are good enough from 3-point range to make this prop worth a play.

Joel Embiid & Kevin Durant to combine for 60+ points – Boosted from +110 to +125 with DraftKings Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Joel Embiid and Kevin Durant to combine for at least 60+ points. With the Nets dealing with a COVID situation, it leaves them shorthanded tonight. However, Durant is active, and will need to put the team on his shoulders. Over the last 2 games, Durant has scored 34 and 51 points, so another huge game is likely. Embiid, on the other hand, somewhat struggled against the Heat last time out by scoring just 17 points. He does average 23.8 points per game, so with a shorthanded Nets team, he should be able to oppose his will in the post. For that reason this prop looks to be worth a play.

Vegas Golden Knights, Carolina Hurricanes & Florida Panthers All To Win – Boosted from +250 to +300 with FanDuel Sportsbook

For this parlay, we will need 3 NHL teams to win their games tonight: the Vegas Golden Knights against the New Jersey Devils, the Carolina Hurricanes against the Detroit Red Wings and the Florida Panthers against the Los Angeles Kings. Our experts love Vegas tonight and like Florida as well to easily take care of business. As for Carolina, we like Detroit to cover the puck line, but a Hurricanes win is still a likely result. For that reason this parlay is worth a play.
