    What is the better boost?

    Two intriguing odds boosts on the board today from DraftKings and FanDuel. Let's take a look at each:

    DraftKings: Travis Kelce & Derrick Henry to combine for 2+ TD's boosted from -125 to +125.



    With the Chiefs going up against the Raiders' defense and a total in the 50's, I think Kelce is a pretty safe bet for a TD today (-130 to -180 anytime TD). I would normally say the same for Henry (-120 to -130 anytime TD). However, with Dobbs at the helm for the Titans, red zone opportunities may be few and far between for King Henry to punch one in.


    FanDuel: Patrick Mahomes pass for 300+ yards & Chiefs win vs Raiders boosted from -115 to +150



    This one seems a little more attractive, as there is some correlation to the outcomes. The Chiefs need to win to secure the #1 seed in the AFC and are between -400 and -450 on the moneyline. Mahomes O/U passing yards is between 324.5 & 331.5 depending on the book.


    I lean towards the FanDuel boost between the two. Which one do you guys prefer? DK, FD, both, or neither?

    i don't think either one is anything close to a free gift, but they are still decent

    mahomes over/under is 324.5 so you're essentially getting a free 25 yards there

    i could argueit's somewhat correlated, and i could also argue it isn't correlated... chiefs could go up big and run the ball, they are probably winning anyway so is it correlated?

    i think i like the draftkings one better, since it's a small amount anyway, and because you get action in both games, unless you already have a win from game 1

    would definitely play both though

    Both are worth playing. What is the max bet for these boosts?

    Ya good point on the FD boost. You're hoping the Raiders score 20+ and stay within striking distance.

    They both list max bet as $50. But as we've seen, that varies by state and account. Let us know how much you were able to get down.

    Most of these are close to true odds it is the same thing when a store like Costco or Sam's Club has something at cost they know in the long run it will make them money.

    i would rather mahomes and the chiefs win. he also wants to win the passing yards record.
