We have put together a list of all of the day’s best odds boosts, which today are from DraftKings Sportsbook, PointsBet Sportsbook and FanDuel Sportsbook. Let’s take a look at whether or not they are worth playing:

Cale Makar to record 2+ assists – Boosted from +250 to +300 with DraftKings Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Cale Makar to record at least 2 assists tonight against the Detroit Red Wings. He has 33 assists on the season, which is tied for 19th in the NHL. He has at least 1 assist in each of the last 5 games and at least 2 assists in 2 of those 5 games. Against the Red Wings tonight, the Avalanche offense should have more than their fair share of scoring chances, making this prop worth a small play.

Both Houston and Xavier to Win – Boosted from +140 to +200 with FanDuel Sportsbook

For this parlay, we will need 2 college basketball teams to win their games tonight. That being the Houston Cougars against the Tulane Green Wave and the Xavier Musketeers against the Providence Friars. While a Houston win looks very likely, our experts would fade Xavier against Providence. The Friars are too good of a home team to fade in this spot, so avoiding this parlay looks to be the best option.

Manchester United to Win & Over 1.5 Goals in the Game – Boosted from +260 to +300 with FanDuel Sportsbook

This prop will need Manchester United to win the 1st leg round of 16 Champions League match against Atletico Madrid and there will need to be over 1.5 goals in the game. Atletico Madrid is known for their defensive play style, but Manchester United has been prone to allow goals often. Manchester United also of course has Cristiano Ronaldo, who can score at anytime or even score multiple times. For that reason, this looks to be a prop worth a small play.

Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Cristiano Ronaldo to score and Manchester United to win – Boosted from +350 to +380 with PointsBet Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Manchester United to win their game against Atletico Madrid and Cristiano Ronaldo will need to score a goal. This is similar to the prop above, but just adding a goal from Ronaldo. Unlike the other prop, a 1-0 win by Manchester United with the lone goal coming from Ronaldo would also cash this prop. Luckily, Ronaldo has a ton of history against Atletico Madrid from his time at Real Madrid. He has played Atletico Madrid 35 times in this career and has 25 goals scored against them. So, even though Atletico Madrid is known as a defensive powerhouse, Ronaldo almost always finds a way to find the back of the net. For that reason, this prop looks to be worth a small play.
