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

Kevin Durant & James Harden to combine for 60+ points – Boosted from +140 to +160 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The NBA is back tonight and here we will need both Kevin Durant and James Harden to start their season in a big way. They will need to combine for 60 points, which could come in a variety of ways. As good as the Bucks were last season, slowing down Durant still looks to be too much to ask for. For that reason, backing this prop looks to be worth a small lean.

Joc Pederson to hit a home run – Boosted from +360 to +475 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The Braves will look for a commanding 3-0 lead tonight as the series shifts to Los Angeles. Joc Pederson has been crushing the ball this postseason, which is why the term “JOCtober” has been floating around. He is 5 for 14 in the postseason with 3 home runs, so backing him to hit another looks to be worth a small play.

Boston Red Sox to hit 2+ home runs – Boosted from –105 to +115 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Boston is absolutely tearing apart Houston pitching in this series, hitting 4 more home runs as a team in Game 3. Zack Greinke will be on the mound for the Astros, which does not offer a ton of confidence that he will keep the ball in the park. Until the Boston lineup cools down, this prop looks to be worth a play.

Tampa Bay Lightning, Washington Capitals & New Jersey Devils All to Win – Boosted from +440 to +550 with FanDuel Sportsbook

For this parlay, we will need 3 teams to win their games. Our experts like both the Capitals to beat the Avalanche and the Devils to beat the Kraken. However, we are not confident in a Lightning win against the Panthers, so staying away from this prop looks to be the best option.

2 or More 3-Point FGs Made in the First 3 Minutes of Los Angeles Lakers vs Golden State Warriors  – Boosted from +125 to +160 with FanDuel Sportsbook

The second game on the NBA slate tonight will see the Golden State Warriors take on the Los Angeles Lakers. With Stephen Curry on the Golden State side, three pointers are likely to be a common theme for this game. Plus, the addition of Russell Westbrook for the Lakers could led to more three point shots, therefore backing a fast start looks to be worth a small play.

Rafael Devers to record a hit and the Red Sox to win – Boosted from +136 to +150 with PointsBet Sportsbook

Rafael Devers has been a huge part of Boston’s success this season, and added a home run on Monday night. He is 10 for 33 in the postseason (.303), and we like a Boston win, so backing this prop looks to be worth a play.

Cale Makar to record 1+ point and the Avalanche to win – Boosted from +170 to +185 with PointsBet Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Cale Makar to record at least a point and the Avalanche will need to win. Makar has 1 point in 2 games this season, so he has not been as productive as we might have thought so far. This is still over just 2 games, but he also has a tough matchup against the Capitals tonight. Our experts would actually back the Capitals in this game, so avoiding this prop looks to be the best option.
