Best sportsbook promotions and odds boosts for today 9/8: NFL
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.
Matthew Stafford over 1.5 passing touchdowns and the Los Angeles Rams to win – Boosted from +175 to +205 with PointsBet Sportsbook
For this prop, we will need Matthew Stafford to record at least 2 passing touchdowns and the Los Angeles Rams will need to beat the Buffalo Bills on Thursday night. The Rams are coming off a Super Bowl-winning season, one in which Stafford was amazing. Stafford record 41 passing touchdowns in the regular season in 2021, and had 13 games where he recorded at least 2 touchdowns.
During the Rams’ playoff run, Stafford had at least 2 touchdowns in all 4 games, including 3 in the Super Bowl against the Cincinnati Bengals. Backing the defending champs to start the season 1-0 still looks to be a decent play in this spot. Especially if Stafford can hit this number, he will give his team a great chance to win — so backing this prop still looks to be worth a small play.

Josh Allen over 250 passing yards and the Buffalo Bills to win – Boosted from +155 to +175 with PointsBet Sportsbook
This prop will need Josh Allen to record at least 250 yards passing and for the Bills to beat the Rams on Thursday night. Allen had the 8th-most passing yards last season, finishing with 4,407. He averaged 259.2 yards per game last season, and had 9 games with at least 250 yards passing. He also hit this total in both playoff games last season, before the Bills ultimately lost to the Kansas City Chiefs. Our experts like the Bills to win this game on Thursday and while we would lean to backing the prop above involving Stafford, this prop also looks to be worth a play as a way to have a play on both sides in the game.
Cooper Kupp, Stefon Diggs, and Allen Robinson to Each Have 50+ Receiving Yards – Boosted from +105 to +170 with FanDuel Sportsbook
For this prop we will need Cooper Kupp, Stefon Diggs and Allen Robinson to each record at least 50 or more receiving yards. Kupp was by far the best receiver in the NFL last season, finishing the regular season with 1,947 yards. In 21 games (including the postseason) he recorded at least 50 yards receiving in every single one.
Diggs finished the regular season with 1,225 yards and had at least 50 receiving yards in 14 of the 17 games. Finally, Robinson ended the regular season with 410 yards and had 50 receiving yards in just 3 games. Robinson is clearly the biggest risk to this prop, but with Stafford now throwing him the ball (he was previously on the Chicago Bears), he should be able to produce more targets and yards. For that reason, backing this prop does look to be worth a play.
