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

Argentina to win and over 1.5 goals in the match – Boosted from +140 to +165 with PointsBet Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Argentina to beat Croatia in the first World Cup semifinal and there will need to be at least 2 goals in the match. One thing that has been consistent about Argentina during this World Cup is goals. There have been at least 2 goals in all of their games so far, and 3 of them resulted in wins in regulation. Their quarterfinal game against the Netherlands went to penalties after Argentina blew a 2-0 lead in the final minutes of regulation, but they should be poised to win this game without the need of extra-time.

Our experts like the draw in this game, but Argentina looks to be lethal enough in their attack that they can slip a goal or two past the Croatian defense. For that reason, this prop looks to be worth a small play.

Both teams to score in Argentina vs Croatia – Boosted from +125 to +135 with PointsBet Sportsbook

This prop will need both teams to score in the semifinal between Argentina and Croatia. Through 5 games in this World Cup, Argentina has seen both teams score in 3 of those games. This includes both knockout stage games against Australia and the Netherlands respectively.

As for Croatia, only 2 of their games have seen both teams score because their game against Brazil saw both goals come in extra-time, which this prop does not include. Containing Lionel Messi could be their biggest issue and the Croatians are likely not going to be able to sit back this entire game to defend. At some point, look for the Croatians to use their counter-attacking to find a goal themselves. For that reason, backing this prop looks to be worth a small play.

Lionel Messi to score 1+ goals vs Croatia – (90 mins + stoppage time only) – Boosted from +145 to +200 with FanDuel Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Lionel Messi to score at least 1 goal against Croatia in regulation time. Messi has scored 4 goals in this World Cup and has a goal in 4 of the 5 games played. He has a goal in both of the knockout round games against Australia and the Netherlands, and should continue to play a huge role against Croatia this afternoon. For that reason, backing this prop looks to be worth a small play
