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 get a hit, record 6+ strikeouts and the Los Angels to win – Boosted from +225 to +255 with PointsBet Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Shohei Ohtani to record a hit, record at least 6 strikeouts and the Los Angeles Angels will need to beat the Atlanta Braves on Friday night. Ohtani is batting .258 on the season and will look to open the second half of the season with a good performance. He had 2 hits in the final game before the all-star break and even had a hit in his only at-bat in the All-Star Game. The Angels will be facing Charlie Morton tonight, who has been solid at times, but is certainly not the best pitcher for the Braves this season.

On the mound, Ohtani is 9-4 on the season and has an ERA of 2.38. He has a total of 123, which is tied for the 8th most in the league this season. In 15 starts this season, Ohtani has recorded at least 6 strikeouts in 11 starts. Our experts would lean to the Angels tonight because Ohtani is on the mound and that seems to be the only time they can actually win games. For that reason, backing this prop looks to be worth a play.

Paddy Pimblett to win by KO/TKO – Boosted from +200 to +240 with PointsBet Sportsbook

This prop will need Paddy Pimblett to beat Jordan Leavitt by KO/TKO at UFC Fight Night 298 on Saturday afternoon. Pimblett clearly looks to be an up and coming fighter in the UFC, winning both of his fights in the promotion so far, one coming by KO/TKO. He has 6 wins by KO/TKO in his career and even though Leavitt has never lost by KO/TKO, this prop still looks to be worth a small lean due to the fact that Pimblett has the ability to stop a fight with a single punch.

Both Chris Curtis and Tom Aspinall to Win – Boosted from +220 to +300 with FanDuel Sportsbook

For this parlay, we will need Chris Curtis and Tom Aspinall to both win their fights at UFC Fight Night 298 on Saturday afternoon. Curtis will be up against Jack Hermansson and Aspinall will take on Curtis Blaydes. Our experts like Curtis because he has the superior striking, and his takedown defense has also been perfect so far in the UFC, which should negate the advantage Hermansson has in grappling. As for Aspinall, we also like him to win because he has the superior striking in terms of volume, and he also has an advantage in grappling due to his perfect takedown accuracy and defense. For that reason, backing this parlay looks to be worth a small play.
