I don't know about ODV software, but I know SeaDAS cannot read l3b files. https://seadas.gsfc.nasa.gov/

However, if you use l3mapgen tool to turn l3bin files into l3m files, SeaDAS can read it. https://seadas.gsfc.nasa.gov/help-8.4.0/processors/ProcessL3mapgen.html

Or you can download and read the equivalent l3m files.
