Here at Pickswise we have put together a list of all of the day’s best odds boosts, which are available from PointsBet Sportsbook. We will also discuss whether or not they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.

Jayson Tatum over 2.5 threes made and the Boston Celtics to win – Boosted from +135 to +155 with PointsBet Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Jayson Tatum to make at least 3 threes and the Boston Celtics to beat the Miami Heat. Tatum had a terrific start to the season, dropping 35 points in the season opener against the Philadelphia 76ers. He made 2 threes in this game, but last season he averaged 3 made threes per game and shot 35.3% from long range. Tonight looks to be another chance for Tatum to take over this game. Our experts love the Celtics tonight to win and cover against a Heat team that looked lackluster in their season opener. A lot of the Celtics success this season will depend on Tatum, so backing him to make a couple threes and the Celtics to win looks to be worth a play.

Stephen Curry over 24.5 points and Golden State Warriors to win – Boosted from +125 to +145 with PointsBet Sportsbook

This prop will need Stephen Curry to record at least 25 points and the Golden State Warriors to beat the Denver Nuggets tonight. The Warriors dismantled the Los Angeles Lakers in their season opener and Curry as usual was a huge part of their success. He scored 33 points in this game, easily passing the number we will need tonight. Our experts would lean to the Warriors tonight to win and cover and Curry should have no problem posting at least 25 points against a Nuggets team that was blown out by the Utah Jazz and allowed 123 points. For that reason, backing this prop looks to be worth a small play.

Manny Machado over 0.5 home runs – Boosted from +340 to +440 with PointsBet Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Manny Machado to hit a home run against the Philadelphia Phillies in Game 3 of the NLCS. Machado has been excellent this postseason, batting .306 in 9 games. He has only 1 home run during that stretch, but it came in Game 2 against the Phillies. He will face Ranger Suarez tonight, who has been inconsistent recently. For that reason and with the odds being offered, backing Machado to hit a home run tonight looks to be worth a small play.
