Best sportsbook promotions and odds boosts for Monday, June 14: NBA, MLB, NFL and NHL
There are plenty of sports going on today with the Euro 2020 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, William Hill Sportsbook and PointsBet Sportsbook today, and whether they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.
Pittsburgh Steelers to win the AFC North (Boosted to +450), William Hill Sportsbook
Even though the Pittsburgh Steelers have a nice price to win the AFC North, we believe they will not be good enough to do so. Ben Roethlisberger is a year older and struggled during the back half of last season. They have a new offensive coordinator and we believe they will see some regression this season. For that reason, this is probably an odds boost to avoid because the Steelers do not look good enough to prevail in a tough division against the Baltimore Ravens, Cleveland Browns and the improving Cincinnati Bengals.

Donovan Mitchell and Paul George over 65.5 points combined (Boosted to +250), William Hill Sportsbook
The LA Clippers and Utah Jazz series is heating up as the Clippers took Game 3 at home to trail 2-1. Donovan Mitchell has had his way with this Clippers defense and there is no reason to believe they will be able to slow him tonight either. Mitchell is averaging 37.3 points per game and Paul George is averaging 26 points per game in the series, suggesting this could be an odds boost worth playing. They have not combined for over 65.5 points yet in the series, but with series getting more intense by the game, this looks to be a decent play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Hawks and Clippers to both win (Boosted to +300), William Hill Sportsbook
The Atlanta Hawks have not been the same since they allowed Philadelphia to make a massive run in Game 1. The Hawks’ shooters are not knocking down shots and as a result, they have lost two in a row. Our experts do not believe Atlanta’s shooting will improve enough and therefore like Philadelphia to win this game. As for the Los Angeles Clippers, we do not think they will cover, but a win looks reasonable. Though because we do not like the Hawks tonight, this may be an odds boost to stay away from. Be sure to check out our full game previews for the Atlanta Hawks and Los Angeles Clippers.
Joel Embiid to score 30+ points and the 76ers to win (Boosted to +185), PointsBet Sportsbook
Joel Embiid has dominated the Hawks through three games, and it hard to argue anything will change. Our experts like the Sixers to take a 3-1 series lead in Atlanta, so because Embiid is averaging 35.3 points per game in the series, this odds boost looks to be a solid play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Mark Stone to score a goal and the Golden Knights to win (Boosted to +230), PointsBet Sportsbook
The NHL Western Conference Finals start tonight and we love for the Golden Knights to take an early series lead. We will need Mark Stone to score for this odds boost to cash, but seeing that he scored only once in the previous series against Colorado, this may be hard to trust. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Trae Young to record 25+ points and 10+ assists (Boosted to +210), DraftKings Sportsbook
The Hawks find themselves 2-1 down in the series and need a big game tonight if they are going to even things up. At the very least, Trae Young is going to need to have a big game. He has only had 25 points and ten assists in one game so far, but with their backs to the wall, this odds boost is decent value. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Paul George to record under 25.5 points and the Jazz to win (Boosted to +425), DraftKings Sportsbook
The Clippers will be trying to even the series at two games apiece tonight and will need Paul George to have a big game to do that. He has scored over 25 points in two of the games, so it is likely going to be tough for the Jazz to slow him down. We like the Jazz to cover in this game, however it’s not certain they will be able to win outright. For that reason, this may be an odds boost to avoid. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
