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 PointsBet Sportsbook. We will discuss whether or not they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.

Logan Webb over 4.5 strikeouts and San Francisco Giants to cover -1.5 – Boosted from +165 to +195 with PointsBet Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Logan Webb to record over 4.5 strikeouts and the San Francisco Giants to cover the -1.5 run line against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Webb is 7-3 on the season and has an ERA of 2.98. He has a total of 88 strikeouts on the season. In 17 starts this season, he has record at least 5 strikeouts in 11 of these starts. Our experts do like the Giants to cover the run line as well because of the fact that they will be facing Dallas Keuchel. He has struggled to an ERA of 7.63 this season, therefore backing a combination of the Giants’ offense and Webb looks to be more than worth a play.

Paul Goldschmidt to get 1+ RBI and the St. Louis Cardinals to win – Boosted from +315 to +375 with PointsBet Sportsbook

This prop will need Paul Goldschmidt to record at least 1 RBI and the St. Louis Cardinals will need to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers tonight. Goldschmidt is batting .335 on the season and has 65 RBIs on the season, which is tied for 4th most in the league. He had a solid month of June with 22 RBIs, but has yet to record a single RBI in July over 11 games.

Tonight should be just as difficult as the Cardinals will be facing Mitch White for the Dodgers. He has been decent so far this season, posting an ERA of 3.38, but has been much better than Cardinals’ starter, Matthew Liberatore. On that same note, our experts are confident in the Dodgers winning this game tonight based on the fact that they have a superior lineup and a much better pitching staff. For that reason, avoiding this prop looks to be the best option.

Luis Garcia over 5.5 strikeouts and Houston Astros to win – Boosted from +170 to +200 with PointsBet Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Luis Garcia to record over 5.5 strikeouts and the Houston Astros to beat the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday night. Garcia is 7-5 on the season with an ERA of 3.81. He has 87 total strikeouts on the season. In 15 starts this season, Garcia has recorded at least 6 strikeouts in 9 of these starts. This includes 1 start against the Angels back in April where he had 7 strikeouts over 5.2 innings. Our experts also like the Astros to win this game behind Garcia because they are facing a slumping Angels side. The Angels are starting Noah Syndergaard, but his bullpen behind him has been awful, therefore this prop looks to be well worth a play.
