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.
Lionel Messi to score a goal and PSG to win – Boosted from +225 to +260 with PointsBet Sportsbook
This prop needs Lionel Messi to score a goal and his PSG team to beat Benfica in the Champions League this afternoon. Messi has scored 1 goal in 2 Champions League matches so far, and PSG has 2 wins in 2 games. The only problem is that PSG has several attacking options, so Messi is not their only source of goals. The Benfica defense has allowed just 1 goal in their first 2 Champions League matches and just 1 goals in their last 5 games in all competitions. On top of that, our experts like Benfica to at least get a draw out of this game. For that reason, avoiding this prop looks to best the best option for this afternoon.

Aaron Judge to hit a home run – Boosted from +260 to +300 with PointsBet Sportsbook
For this prop we will need New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge to hit a home run tonight against the Texas Rangers. Judge is batting .311 on the season, the 5th-best batting average in the MLB. He finally hit home run number 62 on Tuesday to break the single season American League home-run record previously held by Roger Maris.
The Yankees will face Glenn Otto this afternoon for the Rangers, who is 6-10 on the season and has an ERA of 4.72. He has allowed 20 home runs this season, including 7 in his last 6 starts. Judge is 0 for 3 in his career against Otto, but with this afternoon being the final game of the season, Judge will be looking to extend him home run count in what has been a historic season. For that reason, backing this prop still looks to be worth a small play.

UCF to lead at halftime and win – Boosted from +110 to +125 with PointsBet Sportsbook
For this prop, we will need the UCF Knights to lead at halftime and win their game against the SMU Mustangs tonight. This game was originally scheduled for last Saturday, but was rescheduled to tonight because of Hurricane Ian. Now, the biggest edge in this game goes to the UCF Knights’ defense. SMU relies heavily on the pass, but the Knights’ pass defense ranks 11th in opposing pass completion (53.33%), 37th in sack rate, and 39th in opposing pass yards per game (205.7). Because UCF have the better defense, the better ground game, and home-field advantage in this matchup, backing them to lead at halftime and win this game looks to be worth a play.
