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.

Xander Bogaerts to get 2+ hits and the Boston Red Sox to win – Boosted from +500 to +625 with PointsBet Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Xander Bogaerts to record at least 2 hits and the Boston Red Sox will need to beat the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night. The Red Sox are clearly going through a rough stretch right now as they are in last place in the American League East. They recently had that disastrous series against the Toronto Blue Jays and now face the National League Central leading Milwaukee Brewers.

Bogaerts is still having a solid season, batting .318 on the season, which is tied for the 5th best batting average in the league. He has at least 1 hit in his last 6 games with 1 of those games being a multi-hit game as well. In the month of July, he has 7 multi-hit games, so even though the Red Sox will be facing Brandon Woodruff, there is still reason to believe that Bogaerts can have a big game. Our experts do like the Brewers to win this game, but with the odds being offered, this prop could still be worth a small play to hedge a Brewers win.

Brandon Moreno and Derrick Lewis to Each Win by Either KO/TKO or On Points – Boosted from +280 to +400 with FanDuel Sportsbook

This prop will need Brandon Moreno and Derrick Lewis to both win by KO/TKO or Points at UFC 277 on Saturday night. Moreno will be facing Kai Kara-France for the interim flyweight title, while Lewis will be facing Sergei Pavlovich earlier on the Main Card. Our experts do like the fight between Moreno and Kara-France to go the distance and because Moreno won the first fight between them on points, we do believe he could do so again. However, Lewis is getting up there in age and has shown some vulnerabilities with getting knocked out. Pavlovich has also proven to have a ton of power, therefore avoiding this prop looks to be the best option.

Amanda Nunes to Win by KO/TKO vs Julianna Pena at UFC 277 – Boosted from +125 to +175 with FanDuel Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Amanda Nunes to be Julianna Pena by KO/TKO at UFC 277. This will be a fight for the UFC Women’s Bantamweight title and a rematch from December of 2021. Pena beat Nunes in the first meeting to take her belt and also beat her by submission. Nunes is unlikely to make the same mistake, which is why we like her to win this fight. She has 13 wins by KO/TKO in her career, therefore backing this prop should be considered a small play.
