Best sportsbook promotions and odds boosts for today 8/5: MLB and EPL

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

Aaron Judge to hit a home run – Boosted from +200 to +225 with PointsBet Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Aaron Judge to hit a home run tonight against the St. Louis Cardinals. Judge is batting .298 on the season, which is tied for the 20th best batting average in the league. More importantly, he has hit an incredible 43 home runs and we are only in the first week of August. Tonight the Yankees will face Dakota Hudson from the Cardinals, who has an ERA of 4.10. Hudson has allowed just 8 home runs this season, but facing Judge is a much tougher task. Judge already has 1 home run in the month of August, so because he will be facing an average pitcher at best on Friday, backing this prop looks to be worth a play.

Christian Yelich to get 2+ hits and the Milwaukee Brewers to win – Boosted from +270 to +310 with PointsBet Sportsbook

This prop will need Christian Yelich to record at least 2 hits and the Milwaukee Brewers will need to beat the Cincinnati Reds on Friday night. Yelich is batting .261 on the season and has at least 1 hit in 12 of his 13 games. Of those 13 games, 6 of those games have been multi-hit games as well. Add in the fact that Yelich and the Brewers are facing a terrible Reds team, and there is good reason to believe Yelich can post another multi-hit game. Our experts also like the Brewers on the run line tonight, therefore backing this prop certainly looks to be worth a play.

Arsenal To Win & Over 2.5 Total Goals Scored – Boosted from +200 to +250 with FanDuel Sportsbook

The English Premier League is finally back and for this prop we will need Arsenal to beat Crystal Palace this afternoon and there will also need to be over 2.5 total goals scored in the match. It is worth noting that Palace finish last season strong at home, as they were unbeaten in their final 8 games at Selhurst Park last season. Not only that, but they posted 6 shutouts during that run.

We also expect Mikel Arteta’s side to be tougher to break down with his first-choice defense available. Our experts expect this to be a much tighter game because of how Palace defends at home, so even though Arsenal may collect the full 3 points in the end, we do think this match will end with under 3 goals, therefore staying away from this prop looks to be the best option for this afternoon.
