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 BetMGM Sportsbook. We’ll discuss whether or not they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.

Shohei Ohtani to record 6+ strikeouts & hit a home run – Boosted to +360 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Shohei Ohtani will take the mound tonight, looking to add to his stellar campaign. The fact that the Angels are playing the Orioles tells us that this prop has a great chance to hit. Asking Ohtani to strikeout 6 Orioles is more than reasonable and the Baltimore pitching has been horrible recently, suggesting that a home run is also likely. Baltimore has lost 19 straight games, and we expect that trend to continue, so look for Ohtani to dominate them on the mound and at the plate.

Max Muncy to record 3+ total bases – Boosted to +330 with DraftKings Sportsbook

For this prop, we will hone in on Max Muncy. He will need to have 3 total bases. Blake Snell will be on the mound for the Padres and his 4.82 ERA shows the type of struggles he has had this season. Muncy went 0 for 3 last night, but with Snell on the mound, this prop is worth a play.

Zack Wheeler to record 10+ strikeouts – Boosted to +350 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Here we will need a dominant pitching performance from Zack Wheeler. He has shown he can do this, but facing a disciplined Rays team is going to make it that much harder. He has had less than 10 strikeouts in 4 of his last 5 starts, so avoiding this prop looks to be the right play.

Phoenix Mercury vs New York Liberty: Each team to score 40+ points in the 1st half – Boosted to +250 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Both of these teams rank in the top 10 for scoring this season. The Phoenix Mercury are averaging 80.6 points per game and the New York Liberty are averaging 79.6 points per game. They averages out to about 40.3 points per game in the first half for the Mercury and 39.8 for the Liberty. Having shown plenty of offense this season, this prop is worth a play.

Houston Astros & Boston Red Sox both to win – Boosted to +175 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Here we will need two teams to win their games and our experts like both. They do not just like both to win, but they are confident enough in both teams to take them on the run line. That being Boston against Minnesota and Houston against Kansas City. Since all we need here is a win, backing this parlay is worth a play.

Padres to lead at the end of the 5th inning – Boosted to +200 with BetMGM Sportsbook

Going back to the Padres vs Dodgers game and here will need San Diego to win the first half of the game. Though with the struggles from Blake Snell, this does not seem very likely. Plus, Walker Buehler gives up basically nothing for the Dodgers, making this prop one best to avoid.
