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.

Oneil Cruz to record 1+ hit and the Pittsburgh Pirates to win – Boosted from +265 to +320 with PointsBet Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Oneil Cruz to record at least 1 hit and the Pittsburgh Pirates will need to win against the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night. Cruz is batting just .214 on the season, but at home this average goes up to .227. He had 9 hits in the month of June, but just 2 over his last 5 games. The Pirates will be facing Corbin Burnes tonight, so our experts are confident in a Brewers win. Even if Cruz manages to record a hit, this prop is likely best to avoid because the Pirates are likely not going to be able to beat Burnes.

Sean O’Malley to Win by KO/TKO vs Pedro Munhoz at UFC 276 (Saturday Night) – Boosted from +150 to +300 with FanDuel Sportsbook

This prop will need Sean O’Malley to beat Pedro Munhoz by KO/TKO on Saturday night at UFC 276. O’Malley comes into this fight with an MMA record of 15-1 and he is 8-1 in the UFC. Of his 15 career wins, 11 have come by KO/TKO and 6 of those have been in the UFC. Munhoz has actually never lost by KO/TKO, but O’Malley’s striking volume has been unreal so far in the UFC, so this looks to be a great spot for him to pick up another KO/TKO win and make a real statement to the rest of the Bantamweight division. Our experts already like this fight to end inside the distance, so backing O’Malley to win by KO/TKO at the odds being offered looks to be worth a play.

Max Fried, Corbin Burnes, and Tony Gonsolin to Each Throw 5+ Strikeouts – Boosted from +100 to +170 with FanDuel Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Max Fried, Corbin Burns and Tony Gonsolin to each record at least 5 strikeouts. Fried has an ERA of 2.77 this season and has 92 strikeouts on the year. He has recorded at least 5 strikeouts in 12 of his 15 starts, including 4 starts in a row.

Burnes has an ERA of 2.41 this season and has 119 strikeouts on the year. He has recorded at least 5 strikeouts in 14 of his 15 starts this season, including his last 14 starts in a row. Finally, Gonsolin has an ERA of 1.58 and has 69 strikeouts this season. He has recorded at least 5 strikeouts in 10 of his 14 starts this season, including 10 of his last 11 starts. Because all 3 of these guys have favorable matchups, backing this prop looks to be worth a play.
