It’s the start of a brand new week and although there is no NBA Playoffs action, there are still plenty of other sports going on today with the Euro 2020 soccer tournament, NHL Playoffs, and a solid slate of MLB baseball games to get excited about. There is also a host of promotions and odds 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 FanDuel Sportsbook — and whether they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.

Netherlands and Belgium both to score first and win at Euro 2020 (Boosted to +125), DraftKings Sportsbook

Both the Netherlands and Belgium have already won their respective Euro 2020 groups and should be able to see it out in style. The Netherlands faces North Macedonia, which is winless in the tournament so far, while Belgium battles a Finland team that has struggled for creativity in attack. Given the Netherlands and Belgium boast deadly strikeforces, this looks like a great odds boost worth playing. Be sure to check out our full game previews for North Macedonia vs. Netherlands and for Finland vs. Belgium.

Any player to score 2+ goals at Euro 2020 on Monday (Boosted to +100), DraftKings Sportsbook

This boost looks a solid play. For one, we have a four-game slate, and with the Netherlands and Belgium facing weak opposition it is easy to see a player such as Belgium’s Romelu Lukaku scoring more than once. Denmark and Russia are also fighting for qualification and their game could see plenty of goals, especially given how close the Danes have come to finding the net in their two games so far. Be sure to check out our soccer predictions for all of today’s matchups.

New York Islanders to win and over 5.5 goals scored (Boosted to +500), FanDuel Sportsbook

The New York Islanders have been hanging in there with the Tampa Bay Lightning, but this assignment looks a little too tough for them to handle on the road. Further, given how cagey the games have been so far, it’s hard to envision any sort of shootout taking place. Our hockey expert is firmly siding with the Lightning and the under, so it might be worth sitting out this odds boost, even at the attractive odds. Be sure to check out our full game preview for New York Islanders vs. Tampa Bay Lightning.

Matthew Barzal over 3.5 shots on goal for New York Islanders (Boosted to +360), DraftKings Sportsbook

This is another odds boost that looks tempting based on the odds and how hot Barzal’s been, but it’s probably worth sitting out. For one, Barzal hasn’t had four or more shots in any of his last seven games, and he had just two shots in Game 3 and one in Game 4. Granted, he scored with his one shot in Game 4, but that isn’t the focus here. Barzal hits this number far too infrequently to warrant taking this bet, even at +360 odds.

Houston Astros, Chicago Cubs and Los Angeles Dodgers all to win (Boosted to +500), DraftKings Sportsbook

This is an attractive parlay. The Astros have been red hot and should have no problems beating the Orioles in the early afternoon. The Indians and Cubs is a bit of a coinflip, and although I like the Indians’ chances as an underdog, I don’t hate Chicago being in here. The Dodgers and Padres should put on a great game tonight, and if the Astros and Cubs get the job done then there are worse tickets to be holding than one that would be effectively Dodgers +500. I think this odds boost is worth a shot. Be sure to check out our full game previews for all of today’s MLB games.
