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.

Here at Pickswise we have put together a list of all of the day’s best odds boosts, which are available from FanDuel Sportsbook and PointsBet Sportsbook. We will also discuss whether or not they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.

Arsenal to lead at halftime and Win – Boosted from +110 to +125 with PointsBet Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Arsenal to lead at halftime against AFC Bournemouth and they will need to win the game at full time. Arsenal is only 1 of 2 clubs (Manchester City) to start the new campaign with 2 wins in 2 games and look to be in another great spot against AFC Bournemouth. Arsenal have been getting off to quick starts thus far, bagging goals within the first 25 minutes in both of their matches, while they have been solid at the back, having not allowed a first half goal in either match. The Gunners have lead both of their matches at halftime so far (Crystal Palace and Leicester City), so asking them to do the same against Bournemouth is more than reasonable.

Detroit Lions, Buffalo Bills, and Kansas City Chiefs All to Win – Boosted from +220 to +300 with FanDuel Sportsbook

For this parlay, we will need the Detroit Lions, Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs to all win their preseason games on Saturday. The Lions will face the Indianapolis Colts, the Bills will face the Denver Broncos and the Chiefs will face the Washington Commanders. Our experts would lean to a Bills win this afternoon after they beat the Colts last week by a score of 27-24. As for the Lions, they lost to the Falcons, but played decently and are the favorites over the Colts. Finally, the Chiefs lost to the Bears last week, but still have a much more talented roster than the Commanders, therefore backing this parlay looks to be worth a play.

Kamaru Usman to Win by Submission or on Points vs Leon Edwards at UFC 278 – Boosted from -135 to +100 with FanDuel Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Kamaru Usman to beat Leon Edwards by submission or on points at UFC 278. This will be the Main Event at UFC 278, so it will likely take place early on Sunday morning. Usman has been perfect in the UFC and has won the majority of his fights in the UFC decision. He has 10 wins by decision in 15 UFC fights with 1 win by submission. Edwards on the other hand, has never lost by KO/TKO or submission, so a win by decision does look likely for the reigning champion. Our experts already like this fight to go the full 5 rounds, therefore backing this prop looks to be worth a play.
