Matthew has been with Pickswise for a while now, covering a wide variety of sports. His main passions are college football and UFC, and those are the sports he has covered the most. 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 have 1+ hits, 5+ strikeouts and the Los Angeles Angels to win – Boosted from +200 to +245 with PointsBet Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Shohei Ohtani to record at least 1 hit, at least 5 strikeouts and the Los Angeles Angels to beat the Houston Astros. Ohtani is batting .255 on the season, but just .171 in July. He has just 6 hits so far this month and has not recorded a hit in 3 straight games.

As for his pitching, he is 8-4 on the season and has an ERA of 2.44. He has a total of 111 strikeouts and in 14 starts, he has recorded at least 5 strikeouts in 12 of these starts. However, our experts would lean to the Astros winning tonight, so even though Ohtani should reach the strikeout number, his bat has been cold, therefore avoiding this prop looks to be the safest play.

Tiger Woods to make the cut at the Open Championship– Boosted from -155 to -110 with PointsBet Sportsbook

This prop needs Tiger Woods to make the cut at the Open Championship. Woods has not played in many events this season as he comes back from a serious injury, but he has been preparing for this event for weeks now, having skipped the U.S. Open. He has already played a few practice rounds at St. Andrews in preparation and should be to be competitive in one more event. At the very least, Woods is familiar with this course and it is hard to not back him to make the weekend at a short price. For that reason, backing this prop looks to be worth a play.

Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Will Zalatoris to each make the cut at the Open Championship – Boosted from +135 to +200 with FanDuel Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Will Zalatoris to all make the cut at the Open Championship. As mentioned in the previous prop, we already like Woods to make the cut because of the preparation he has put into this tournament and of course he is the greatest golfer of all time. McIlroy is the favorite for this event, so him not making the cut would be disastrous. He skipped the Scottish Open to prepare for this week, so we should see McIlroy during the weekend.

Finally, Zalatoris has been great in majors this season, finishing T6th (Masters), 2nd (PGA Championship) and T2nd (U.S. Open). He missed the cut at the Scottish Open last week, but that should not prevent him doing well this week. For that reason, backing this prop looks to be well worth a play.
