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

Corey Seager to have 2+ RBIs – Boosted from +500 to +600 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The Dodgers are on the brink of elimination tonight as they lost Game 3 by a score of 1-0. This prop will need Corey Seager to record 2 RBIs, however the Giants’ pitching has been strong. The Dodgers’ offense has been shut out in 2 games this series and even in their 9-2 Game 2 win, Seager went 1-5 and had just 1 RBI. Because of the strong pitching for the Giants, this looks to be a prop worth staying away from.

Austin Riley to hit a home run – Boosted from +300 to +350 with DraftKings Sportsbook

With a win on Monday, the Atlanta Braves are 1 game away from advancing to the NLCS. Offense has been a premium in this series, and Joc Pederson has been one of the main contributors. As for Austin Riley, we will need him to hit a home run this evening. Riley has a couple of hits in the series, but the Brewers’ pitching has been too strong for the most part. For that reason, avoiding this prop looks to be the best option.

Kraken to score 3+ goals – Boosted from +155 to +180 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The Seattle Kraken will play their first ever regular-season game tonight and it will be against the Vegas Golden Knights. The Golden Knights will have Robin Lehner in goal after Marc-Andre Fleury moved to Chicago. Lehner was solid last season and should fare well against this expansion team. The Kraken have 5 players out due to COVID protocols, so asking them to score 3 goals in their first game seems to be a bit much. For that reason, it is probably better to stay away from this prop.

Nikita Kucherov to score a goal and Lightning to win – Boosted from +180 to +215 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The first NHL regular season game will see the Tampa Bay Lightning host the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Lightning are coming off back-to-back Stanley Cup wins and will unveil their banner tonight. Nikita Kucherov was a huge part of that team last season and should be poised to start this season with a bang. We already like the Lightning to win and the fact that Pittsburgh has several of their best players missing makes a Kucherov goal more likely. For that reason, this prop looks to be worth a play.

Chicago White Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers both to win – Boosted from +210 to +240 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Two teams in must-win games will be the parlay today as the White Sox and Dodgers both trail 2-1 in their series. We like the White Sox this afternoon with Carlos Rodon on the mound, while it is always tough to count the Dodgers out. Because of what is at stake, backing this parlay looks to be worth a small play.

Tampa Bay Lightning and Vegas Golden Knights to both win – Boosted from +100 to +150 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Opening night of the NHL is sure to be exciting with the defending champs unveiling their banner and a new expansion starting their franchise. Our experts love the Lightning to pick up a home win tonight, while we also like the Golden Knights to spoil the first game for the Kraken. For that reason, this parlay looks to be worth a play.
