Best sportsbook promotions and odds boosts for Friday, June 18: NBA, NHL and MLB
There are plenty of sports going on today with the Euro 2020 soccer tournament, NBA Playoffs, NHL 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.
Paul George to score 25+ points and Clippers to win (Boosted to +155), PointsBet Sportsbook
The Clippers did not have Kawhi Leonard for Game 5, but it did not stop them from picking up a crucial win. Led by Paul George, the Clippers will look to send the Jazz home tonight. George is averaging 28.0 points per game, so the points should not be an issue. However, our experts believe the Jazz will have enough to win this time around with no Leonard, therefore this might be an odds boost bet to avoid. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Fernando Tatis Jr to hit a home run (Boosted to +220), PointsBet Sportsbook
Fernando Tatis Jr has been a beast all season and showed his power again last night with a long home run. Tonight the Padres will be facing Tony Santillan and the Reds and there is reason to believe Tatis Jr could go deep again. Santillan is pretty new to the big leagues and has struggled with his control so far. For that reason, this looks to be an odds boost worth playing. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Braves to win and over 8.5 total runs scored in the game (Boosted to +180), DraftKings Sportsbook
Both the Atlanta Braves and the St Louis Cardinals are struggling this season, but our experts like the Atlanta Braves to win tonight given their potent offense. We also like there to be plenty of runs scored, making this an odds boost worth playing. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Trae Young to record over 27.5 points and the Hawks to win (Boosted to +300), DraftKings Sportsbook
The Hawks did the unthinkable and came back from more than 20 points down in Game 5 to take a 3-2 series lead. Now they return home to a thunderous crowd, looking to send the Sixers home for the summer. A Hawks win is going to rest on the shoulders of Trae Young tonight. He is coming off 39 points in Game 5 and there is reason to believe he is going to have another huge game. Young is averaging 29.6 points per game, so backing this odds boost looks to be worth a play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Cole Caulfield and Mark Stone each record a point (Boosted to +320), DraftKings Sportsbook
Game 3 of the NHL Western Conference Finals will be very important and tonight we will be looking to a player from each side to record a point. Cole Caulfield for the Canadiens has two points in this series already and Mark Stone from Vegas has failed to record a point so far. Even though he has not recorded a point, he is one of the Golden Knights’ top players, so at this price, this boost looks to be worth a shot. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Blue Jays, Brewers and Dodgers all to win (Boosted to +290), DraftKings Sportsbook
For this odds boost, we will be looking for three favorites to take care of business. Toronto starts off with their game against Baltimore and our experts certainly like the Blue Jays to prevail. We also like the Colorado Rockies to keep it close against Milwaukee, but a Brewers win is still likely. Finally, we love the Dodgers tonight against the Diamondbacks. For that reason, this odds boost is probably one to take advantage of. Be sure to check out our full game previews for the Toronto Blue Jays, Milwaukee Brewers and Los Angeles Dodgers.
