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

Trevor Story to get a hit and the Boston Red Sox to win – Boosted from +130 t0 +145 with PointsBet Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Trevor Story to record at least 1 hit and the Boston Red Sox to win against the St. Louis Cardinals tonight. Story went through a stretch this season where he looked like the hottest player in baseball at the plate, but now he is batting .219. He has recorded 12 hits in June (14 games), including 1 last night against this same Cardinals’ pitching staff in a 6-5 win. Our experts would lean towards the Red Sox to win tonight even though the Cardinals have a solid starter on the mound in Dakota Hudson. For that reason, look for Story to contribute offensively and back this prop as a lean.

Calvin Kattar vs Josh Emmett to End by KO/TKO – Boosted from +105 to +140 with FanDuel Sportsbook

This prop will need the UFC Main Event between Calvin Kattar and Josh Emmett at UFC on ESPN 37 to end in a KO/TKO tonight. Kattar has an impressive MMA record of 23-5 and he is 7-3 in the UFC. Of his 23 career wins, 11 have come by KO/TKO. Of his 10 UFC fights, 4 of his wins have been by KO/TKO.

Emmett has an MMA record of 17-2 and he is 8-2 in the UFC. Of his 17 career wins, only 6 have come by KO/TKO. In the UFC, he has had 4 fights end by KO/TKO. Our experts like Kattar to win this fight on the money line. However, because Emmett has previously lost by KO/TKO, this prop still looks to be worth a small play because of the sheer striking volume that Kattar has shown in some of his previous fights.

Be sure to check out our full fight preview for this Main Event.

Los Angeles Galaxy, Philadelphia Union & New York Red Bulls all to win – Boosted from +220 to +320 with FanDuel Sportsbook

For this parlay, we will need 3 MLS teams to win their games tonight: the Los Angeles Galaxy against the Portland Timbers, the Philadelphia Union against Cincinnati FC and the New York Red Bulls against Toronto FC. Our experts like the Galaxy to win with both teams scoring, the Union to win in a shutout and the Red Bulls to win, also with both teams scoring. For that reason, backing this parlay looks to be well worth at least a small play.
