World Series Player Props, Picks, and Odds Boosts From DraftKings Sportsbook
This is it. It all comes down to tonight; the moment of truth. Or more accurately, the moment that’s slated to kick off the moment of truth, as the Houston Astros brace to face off against the Atlanta Braves tonight at 8:09 EST, for their first home game and the first game of the 2021 Fall Classic.
It remains to be seen who’ll win out as the victor of the first game of the 2021 World Series, but if you’re looking to potentially win tonight, then you should look no further than our friends from DraftKings Sportsbook. They’ve got a STACKED lineup of picks, player props, and odds boosts on the line tonight, and we’ve got the rundown on each.
DraftKings’ World Series Player Props & Picks
You can check out this story to learn more information about DraftKings’ top betting split picks tonight, but right now, they have three types of player prop wagers open for the first game of the 2021 World Series:
- Player to hit the first home run
- Player to make the first hits
- Player to make the most home runs
For the shortest odds on the first prop, you could bet +800 on Braves outfielder Adam Duvall hitting the first homer, or +750 on there just simply being no home runs scored whatsoever. For the longest odds, you could place a +2500 wager on Ehire Adrianza, or +1500 on Joc Pederson.
DraftKings shorts’ on the most hits include the Astros’ Jose Altuve (+500) and the Braves’ Michael Brantley (+700), but if you’re feeling long, you could go for a +4000 player prop on Adam Duvall, or +4500 on the Braves’ Chas McCormick.
For the most home runs, you’ll find the shortest odds riding on Adam Duvall (+550) and Austin Riley (+700), and the longest posted on Yuli Gurriel (+4500) and Michael Brantley (+5000). There’s a lot of picks in between the shortest and longest player props here, and you can find out more about them here through DraftKings’ World Series Odds page.
DraftKings’ World Series Boosts
We’ve got some great odds boost specials open for tonight’s game. Starting off, there’s DraftKings’ exclusive World Series MVP Boost, which will add 20% to your profits on any World Series MVP pick. Rather than just applying to Game 1, these boosts are future bets that apply to the entire series at large. You can also check out player props at other online sports betting sites via OddsSeeker.
You can learn more about this profit boost promo by:
- Opting in, at which point you’ll be issued a single-use profit boost for use on any MVP bet.
- You have to select the boost from the bet slip before actively placing any wager.
- Placing a max $50 bet with max $300 winnings.
Aside from that future odds boost promo, here are two select DraftKings boosts tailored for tonight’s game:
- LCS MVPs: Eddie Rosario or Yordan Alvarez to hit a home run (Boosted +235)
- Big Game Chuck: Charlie Morton records a win (Boosted +300)
