Best sportsbook promotions and odds boosts for Friday, June 11: NBA, MLB and Euro 2020
There are plenty of sports going on today with the Euro 2020 tournament kicking off, NBA playoffs and a big slate of MLB baseball games. There look to be a host of promotions and boosts on offer from sportsbooks. But which ones should you look to capitalize on?
We’ve put together a list of all of the day’s best boosts, which happen to be from DraftKings Sportsbook, and PointsBet Sportsbook today, and whether they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.
Trae Young to score 25+ points and the Hawks to win (Boosted to +225), PointsBet Sportsbook
The Hawks stole Game 1 on the road and then proceeded to lose Game 2. Similar to the first-round series with the Knicks, the Hawks will look to keep home court advantage tonight in Atlanta. Trae Young is averaging 28.0 points per game this series, so there is a good chance he will reach the 25 point mark tonight. However, our experts would lean to Philly taking Game 3 because of what we saw from Embiid in Game 2. Atlanta does not seem to have an answer for the Philly big man right now, so this might be an odds boost to avoid. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Nikola Jokic to score 25+ points and the Nuggets to win (Boosted to +160), PointsBet Sportsbook
The Nuggets have their backs to the wall, dropping both games in Phoenix by a wide margin. Nikola Jokic has only averaged 23.0 points per game in the series and the Nuggets need him to be better if they are going to comeback in this series. Being at home, Jokic will likely be recognized for winning the MVP and should be able to feed off the crowd’s energy. As for the Nuggets winning the game, we like them in the spot, so backing this odds boost looks to be a decent play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Tampa Bay Rays, Chicago White Sox and Cleveland Indians all to win (Boosted to +340), DraftKings Sportsbook
For this odds boost, we will need three winners on the MLB slate. Our experts like Tampa Bay to win comfortably, but are less confident about Chicago and Cleveland. We actually like Detroit (playing Chicago) to cover the run line and for Seattle (playing Cleveland) to do the same. That would suggest both the White Sox and Indians can win their games by one run and cash all of these plays. For that reason, this looks to be a decent play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for the Tampa Bay Rays, and Cleveland Indians.
Kevin Huerter to record 3+ threes (Boosted to +200), DraftKings Sportsbook
Regardless about who you think wins this game, this odds boost looks like a lock. Kevin Huerter is a vital part to this Hawks’ offense because of the way he can shoot from deep. So far in the postseason (seven games), Huerter has shot 16 of 32 from deep. He has made three shots from deep in four of these seven games, including Game 1 and 2 of this series with the Sixers. In two home playoff games (both against the Knicks), Huerter went 6 of 9 from downtown. The Hawks are likely going to feed off the energy of the crowd, so backing Huerter to knock down a few threes looks to be a must play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Devin Booker and Chris Paul to each record a double-double (Boosted to +4400), DraftKings Sportsbook
We will be looking at longshot for this odds boost, though it would have cashed in Game 2 of the series. Devin Booker had 18 points and 10 rebounds in Game 2, while Chris Paul had 17 points and 15 assists. While we like Denver to win this game, these two players are still going to need to be at their best. We think both will score 10+ points easily, while Paul is likely going to get his assists. Booker may struggle to get to 10 rebounds, however backing this play at these odds is still worth a small shot. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Both teams to score and Italy to win (Boosted to +425), DraftKings Sportsbook
The Euro 2020 tournament kicks off today as Italy will be hosting Turkey in Rome. We do like the Italians to start off with a win, however we are not so sure that Turkey will be finding the back of the net. Italy has not conceded in eight games, therefore this looks to be an odds boost to avoid. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
