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

Romelu Lukaku to score anytime – Boosted from +170 to +190 with DraftKings Sportsbook

After a few grumblings in the media from Romelu Lukaku about his situation at Chelsea, he will look to prove himself this afternoon in the EFL Cup semi-final against Tottenham Hotspur. This prop will need him to score at anytime. Lukaku has 5 goals in the Premier League this season and is still one of Chelsea’s most dangerous players going forward. For that reason, this prop looks to be worth a small play.

Kyrie Irving to score 25+ points – Boosted from +170 to +190 with DraftKings Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Kyrie Irving to score at least 25+ points. Irving has yet to play a single game this season and is now only permitted to play road games. However, going up against the Pacers should give him the perfect opportunity to start his season out right. In 1 game against the Pacers last season, Irving scored 35 points, so even though he has yet to play this season this prop still looks to be worth a play.

Stephen Curry & Luka Doncic to combine for 60+ points  – Boosted from +240 to +280 with DraftKings Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Stephen Curry and Luka Doncic to combine for at least 60+ points. With both guys being superstars, this prop looks to be very much achievable. Curry is averaging 27.2 points per game, while Doncic is averaging 24.9 points per game. Even though their averages do not equal the number we need, both guys could easily go for 30+ points tonight. I would expect both Curry and Doncic to shoot the ball well tonight against each other, so backing this prop looks to be worth a small play.

Pittsburgh Penguins to score first & win the game – Boosted from +150 to +175 with DraftKings Sportsbook

This prop will need the Pittsburgh Penguins to score first against the St. Louis Blues and they will also need to win the game. While scoring first might not be too much of a stretch, our experts do lean to the Blues to prevail on Wednesday. For that reason, this prop might be best to stay away from.

Michigan St to win by 20+ points – Boosted from +150 to +165 with DraftKings Sportsbook

For this prop we will need Michigan State to win convincingly against Nebraska. The Spartans have once again emerged as one of the better teams in the country, while the Cornhuskers have really struggled to win many wins. We already like Michigan State to cover the double-digit spread, so backing them to win by 20 looks to be worth a play.

Toronto Maple Leafs & Pittsburgh Penguins Both to Win – Boosted from +140 to +180 with FanDuel Sportsbook

For this parlay we will need 2 NHL teams to win their games tonight: the Toronto Maple Leafs against the Edmonton Oilers and the Pittsburgh Penguins against the St. Louis Blues. Our experts like the Leafs to win tonight and like them to win in regulation against an Oilers team that will likely be without Connor McDavid. As mentioned above, though, we are leaning toward the Blues — so avoiding this parlay looks to be the best option.
