Matthew uses a variety of methods to handicap games, including stats, trends, injuries, and situational factors. His goal is to consistently give out winners and will put in the research to try and achieve this.

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

Shohei Ohtani to get a hit, record 5+ strikeouts and the Los Angeles Angels to win – Boosted from +160 to +180 with PointsBet Sportsbook

For this prop we will need Shohei Ohtani to record at least 1 hit, record at least 5 strikeouts and the Los Angeles Angeles to beat the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday night. Ohtani is batting .268 on the season and is coming off a 3 for 3 game last night. He has at least 1 hit in 7 of his last 8 games, as well, so he is seeing the ball very well and that should continue against this Chicago pitching staff.

As for his pitching, he is coming off what was easily his best start of the season, in which he went 8.0 innings and recorded 13 strikeouts against the Kansas City Royals. He now has at least 5 strikeouts in his last 3 starts and has at least 5 strikeouts in 10 of his 12 starts. Our experts would lean toward a White Sox win, but with how Ohtani is pitching right now and with how he is seeing the ball at the plate, backing this prop still looks to be worth a small play.

CJ Cron to get a hit and the Colorado Rockies to win – Boosted from +225 to +260 with PointsBet Sportsbook

This prop will need CJ Cron to record a hit and the Colorado Rockies to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Rockies have already won the first 2 games of the series with the Dodgers, but completing the sweep will be even harder tonight. Cron is batting .295 on the season and has at least 1 hit in 4 straight games. Colorado will face Julio Urias, however; he has an ERA of 2.48. The Rockies will counter with German Marquez. His ERA is 5.58 and he has been poor at home. Our experts like the Dodgers to salvage a game on the road tonight, therefore avoiding this prop looks to be the safest option.

Jameson Taillon, Justin Verlander, and Taijuan Walker to Each Throw 5+ Strikeouts – Boosted from +310 to +400 with FanDuel Sportsbook

For this prop we will need Jameson Taillon, Justin Verlander and Taijuan Walker to each record at least 5 strikeouts in their games tonight. Taillon has bagged at least 5 strikeouts in 7 of his 14 starts this season, including 3 of his last 5. Verlander has gotten at least 5 strikeouts in 11 of his 14 starts, including 7 of his last 9. As for Walker, he has recorded at least 5 strikeouts in 4 of his 12 starts, but has done so in his last 3 consecutive starts. With all 3 of these pitcher consistently producing strikeouts, backing this prop looks to be worth a shot.
