We have put together a list of all of the day’s best odds boosts, which are from FanDuel Sportsbook and PointsBet Sportsbook. We will discuss whether or not they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.

Jayson Tatum to score 35+ points and the Boston Celtics to win – Boosted from +400 to +530 with PointsBet Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Jayson Tatum to score at least 35 points and the Boston Celtics to win Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Miami Heat. The Celtics have firmly taken control of this series, leading 3-2 in the series and they can advance to the NBA Finals at home tonight. Tatum is averaging 23.8 points per game in the series, but in several of the games the Celtics were up by so much in the 4th quarter that Tatum did not need to finish the game. Our experts would lean towards the Celtics winning tonight, as well as cover, therefore backing another complete performance from the Boston star to finally put away the injury-riddled Heat is worth a small play.

Nathan MacKinnon to score a goal and the Colorado Avalanche to win – Boosted from +200 to +240 with PointsBet Sportsbook

This prop will need Nathan MacKinnon to score a goal and the Colorado Avalanche will need to beat the St. Louis Blues in Game 6 of the Western Conference semifinals tonight. With the Blues winning on the road in Game 5, it makes tonight’s Game 6 very tense. The Avs had a 3-1 lead in the series, but because they are on the road, they could be in danger of seeing this series shift back to Colorado for a Game 7. MacKinnon looked unstoppable in Game 5, recording a hat-trick. This was the first time in the series where he was able to score and after a loss like that, he is sure to come out strong.

Our experts would lean towards a Blues’ win, but backing this prop could still be worth a play in a game where MacKinnon should score. This could be used as a hedge with a small play on the Blues money line and a small play on this prop.

Colorado Avalanche, Boston Red Sox & Los Angeles Dodgers all to win – Boosted from +300 to +400 with FanDuel Sportsbook

For this parlay, we will need 3 teams to win their games tonight: the Colorado Avalanche against the St. Louis Blues, the Boston Red Sox against the Baltimore Orioles and the Los Angeles Dodgers against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Our experts like the Red Sox to cruise to a win tonight, while the Dodgers should also be able to handle an average at best Diamondbacks side. As for the game between the Avalanche and the Blues, our experts would lean towards the Blue to force a Game 7, however; this parlay still may be worth a small play in case the Avs bounce back from their Game 5 loss and close out the series.
