There are plenty of sports going on tonight with the NHL playoffs, NBA playoffs, and a decent-sized baseball slate. There look to be plenty 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, William Hill Sportsbook and PointsBet Sportsbook today and whether they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.

Mark Stone to score a goal and Vegas Golden Knights to win (Boosted to +250), PointsBet Sportsbook

The Vegas Golden Knights are looking to avoid another upset when they take on the Minnesota Wild in Game 7 of this first-round series. We expect the Golden Knights to get the win tonight and to do that, Mark Stone is probably going to have to make an impact. Stone has scored four goals this series and looks to be a decent bet to score tonight as well. Including the regular season, Stone has six goals against Minnesota. We actually like Vegas on the puck line tonight, so because of that, this looks to be a play worth taking.

Hawks, Nets & Clippers all to win to win (Boosted to +270), DraftKings Sportsbook

A bunch of Game 3s will take place tonight and we are expecting the Clippers to get back into their series, while the Nets can take complete control of theirs. As for the Hawks, we do not think they will be able to cover, however a win at State Farm Arena is not off the table.

Kevin Durant to score 30+ points and Brooklyn Nets to win (Boosted to +190), PointsBet Sportsbook

The Brooklyn Nets are expected to take a 3-0 lead in the series against Boston, which likely means Kevin Durant is going to have a huge game. He had 32 in Game 1 and 26 in Game 2 for an average of 29 points per game so far. The main reason he did not have more than 30 in Game 2 was because Joe Harris poured in 25 points, shooting seven of ten from three-point range. We do not he will be able to sustain that shooting, therefore giving Durant more opportunities with the ball. At plus-money and with Boston on the ropes, we think this odds boost is worth a play.

Shohei Ohtani 8+ strikeouts (Boosted to +125), PointsBet Sportsbook

Shohei Ohtani was scratched on Thursday night and will now be set to start tonight’s game against the Oakland Athletics. Ohtani is 3-3 this season when pitching and has an ERA of 2.37. He has a K/9 of 13.5, but has had more than eight strikeouts in just two starts. However, he has had at least seven strikeouts in all but one start, making this an obtainable play. Oakland is in the middle of the pack with 458 total strikeouts, but at plus-money, this odds boost looks like a decent play.

Nets, Knicks, Yankees and Mets all to Win (Boosted to +1100), William Hill Sportsbook

If you are a New York sports fan, this may be the perfect odds boost for you. So, while we are not predicting the New York Mets to beat the Atlanta Braves, this price is almost too good to pass up on. We love the Yankees tonight against a poor Tigers side and we also think the Knicks will cover and maybe win outright to take a series lead. We also like the Nets to crush the Celtics, so this odds boost may be worth a long shot.

Hawks and Braves to Win (Boosted to +190), William Hill Sportsbook

This odds boost may be worth a shot to hedge the New York odds boost from above. We like Ian Anderson and the Braves to take care of the Mets too, and while we are backing a Knicks cover, the Hawks have been great in their home games.

Kawhi Leonard, Luka Doncic and Paul George Over 100.5 Combined Points (Boosted to +250), William Hill Sportsbook

With how Luka Doncic is scoring the ball right now, this odds boost is looking like a must play. There really has not been much defense in this series so far as Kawhi Leonard was able to drop 41 in the Game 2 loss. Paul George added 28 as well, while Donic had 39. Combined these three guys had 108 points in Game 2, and with the Clippers in a must win Game 3, look for the stars to shine.
