We have put together a list of all of the day’s best odds boosts, which happen to be from DraftKings Sportsbook, FanDuel Sportsbook, and PointsBet Sportsbook. We’ll discuss whether or not they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.

Yankees & Mets both to win – Boosted to +145 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Looking for both New York teams to win tonight and while we lean towards the Yankees, the Mets are a different story. The Mets are coming off a sweep at he hands of the Phillies, so because of that form, this looks to be a play worth avoiding.

Be sure to check out all of our MLB Picks for today’s action.

Rays vs Red Sox: Over 2.5 strikeouts in the first inning – Boosted to -105 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Here we will be looking for several swing and misses in the 1st inning. Luis Patino will be on the mound for the Rays and he has 39 strikeouts in 36.2 innings. For Boston, Eduardo Rodriguez will be the starter and he has 131 strikeouts in 104.2 innings. Even though we have some solid bats at the top of each lineup, this still looks to be worth a small play because both pitchers have proven to be able to rack up the strikeouts.

Over 1.5 HR in first 3 innings of Pirates vs Cardinals – Boosted to +400 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Looking for power in the early stages of this NL Central matchup and given the pitching, this looks to be fairly solid. JA Happ has an ERA of 6.77 for the Cardinals, so even though the Pirates are not a good team, a home run is not out of the question. Steven Brault has actually been solid for the Pirates, posting an ERA of 2.25. Still, the Cardinals have enough firepower in their lineup to make this worth a small play.

Dodgers, Mets and White Sox All to Win – Boosted to +350 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Here we are looking for three teams to win their games, though we do not like 2 of the teams involved. Our experts lean to the Phillies to beat the Dodgers and like the Nationals to beat the slumping Mets. For that reason, this looks to be an odds boost best to stay away from.

Aaron Nola to Record 8+ Strikeouts vs Dodgers – Boosted to +230 with FanDuel Sportsbook

The Phillies now find themselves in 1st place in the NL East after a sweep against the Mets. Though it will get much tougher now as they prepare to face the Los Angeles Dodgers. Aaron Nola will be on the mound for the Phillies and here we will be looking for him to have at least 8 strikeouts. Nola already has 152 strikeouts in 126.1 innings, and even though he has not not quite been himself, I expect him to rise up in a game against one of the league’s best. For that reason, this looks to be worth a small play.

Max Scherzer to record 8+ strikeouts and the Dodgers win – Boosted to +175 with PointsBet Sportsbook

Going back to the same Phillies vs Dodgers matchup and we will also need Max Scherzer to have at least 8 strikeouts. In his only start with the Dodgers, Scherzer had 10 strikeouts in 7.0 innings. Though our experts would actually lean to the value presented with the Phillies, so because they have been red hot as of late, this looks to be an odds boost best to avoid.
