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 and PointsBet Sportsbook today and whether they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.

Miami Heat and Miami Marlins both to win (was +370, now +420), DraftKings Sportsbook

On paper, this looks like it could be a solid bet, but digging in deeper, it may be best to stay away from even these juicy odds. We do in fact believe the Miami Marlins are going to win their game tonight against the Philadelphia Phillies. The Phillies are dealing with some injuries, while the Marlins have Trevor Rodgers on the mound, who has been fantastic this season.

That leaves the Miami Heat, who are looking to bounce back from a loss in Game 1. That game went to overtime, but it is worth mentioning that Giannis Antetokounmpo played awfully. He shot 37 percent from the field and 0-13 from outside the restricted arc. There is also the fact that the Heat had to shoot 20 of 50 from downtown to even stay within reach. The Bucks had an off shooting night from distance, but we believe this is the game where that will improve. For that reason, it is probably worth staying away from this play.

Nuggets and Trail Blazers to combine for 33+ three-pointers made (was +350, now +415), DraftKings Sportsbook

This odds boost is very intriguing because as we know, teams just love to shoot the three nowadays. Game 1 saw 30 three-pointers made, and even though that number is below what we need tonight, there is still reason to be optimistic. The Trail Blazers certainly did their part in Game 1, knocking down 19 of 40 three-pointers. At roughly 47.5 percent, another shooting performance like this would go a long way. On the other side, Denver knocked down 11 of 36 for 30.6 percent. The biggest outlier here was Michael Porter Jr, who went one of ten from downtown. We should expect a much better shooting night from him at the very least, and therefore this play looks pretty solid.

Damien Lillard to score 30+ points and Trail Blazers to win (was +231, now +260), PointsBet Sportsbook

We had a similar odds boost to this for Game 1 and it managed to hit as Lillard easily score 30+ and the Trail Blazers won going away. Game 2 may be a different story as we believe Denver is due to bounce back strong. The Nuggets actually had the better shooting percent from the field, but their three-point shots were lacking. Our experts believe Denver is bound to have a better shooting night from downtown and Nikola Jokic will do a better job as distributing the ball. For those reasons, this may be an odds boost to stay away from.

Brayden Point to score a goal and the Tampa Bay Lightning to win (was +300, now +335), PointsBet Sportsbook

Tampa Bay took a commanding 3-1 lead in Game 4 and now will try to close out the series. Though they will be on the road and the hostile crowd is likely going to be out in force. For this odds boost, we are going to need Brayden Point to score a goal and the Lightning have to close out the series. Point has three goals through four games, so that is not so much the problem. We actually believe the Florida Panthers will be able to extend this series on their home ice. The Panthers have some great playmakers and we think the home crowd will be too much for Tampa Bay. For that reason, this is an odds boost to probably stay away from.

Auston Matthews to score and the Toronto Maple Leafs to win (was +160, now +190), DraftKings Sportsbook

After a 2-1 loss in Game 1, the Maple Leafs were not playing around in Game 2. They came away with a 5-1 win and will look to keep up their momentum tonight. For this odds boost, we are going to need a repeat of Game 2 basically. That would be an Auston Matthews score and a Toronto win. He managed to have three points in that game behind two assists and one goal. Because we like the Maple Leafs to win again, that will likely mean Matthews is going to have a big game. Therefore, this looks like a decent play to back.
