Best sportsbook promotions and odds boosts for Saturday, June 12: NBA, MLB and UFC
There are plenty of sports going on today with the Euro 2020 soccer tournament, NBA playoffs, a full UFC card 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, and PointsBet Sportsbook today, and whether they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.
Kawhi Leonard and Paul George to combine for 50+ points (Boosted to -140), PointsBet Sportsbook
The Clippers trail in their series against the Utah Jazz, but there is still reason to believe Kawhi Leonard and Paul George will have a good game. They have combined for 43 and 47 points in the two games of this series and that is with George shooting poorly in Game 1 and merely decently in Game 2. Being at home should lift the confidence of the Clippers, so backing this odds boost looks to be a decent play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Israel Adesanya to throw 1+ punch vs. Marvin Vettori at UFC 263 (Boosted to +100), PointsBet Sportsbook
Looking at this odds boost, you probably have to double take because of how easily this one will be to cash. There is really not much to say other than jump on this as soon as you can because it is essentially free money. There is no way Adesanya is not going to land a punch here. Be sure to check out our full fight preview for this Main Event.
LA Clippers to lead at half-time and win the game (Boosted to +125), DraftKings Sportsbook
The Clippers are in a similar position in this round as they were in the first round. Granted they are playing a better team in the Utah Jazz, however it is not hard to believe that the Clippers come out on fire. Our experts like a Jazz cover, and this may be worth a small play because of the situation the Clippers will be facing. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Chase Hooper and Matt Frevola both to win (Boosted to +200), DraftKings Sportsbook
We will be looking for two guys to win their fights on the preliminary cards for this odds boost. Our experts like both of these guys to win given who they will be fighting, so backing this odds boost looks to be a decent play, but I would keep this play small. Be sure to check out our full fight preview for Chase Hooper and Matt Frevola.
Chicago White Sox and Chicago Cubs both to win (Boosted to +175), DraftKings Sportsbook
This is another odds boost where we will need two Chicago teams to come through. Our experts like both the Chicago White Sox (vs. Detroit Tigers) and the Chicago Cubs (vs. St Louis Cardinals), so for that reason, backing this odds boost is a solid play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for the Chicago Cubs and
Jamahal Hill vs. Paul Craig and Fares Ziam vs. Luigi Vendramini both to go under 2.5 rounds (Boosted to +225), DraftKings Sportsbook
We already like the Jamahal Hill vs Paul Craig to end inside the distance, making an under 2.5 likely. We also like Luigi Vendramini to win as a small underdog and he very well could do so quickly. Therefore, backing this odds boost looks to be a worthwhile play. Be sure to check out our full fight previews for Jamahal Hill vs. Paul Craig and Fares Ziam vs. Luigi Vendramini.
Israel Adesanya, Deiveson Figueiredo and Belal Muhammad all to win (Boosted to +210), DraftKings Sportsbook
These are three UFC 263 Main Card fights in which we will need the big favorite to come away with a win. We like the Main Event to go the distance, but an Israel Adesanya win is likely a solid play too. As for the Co-Main Event, we like this fight to go over 3.5 rounds, but again, Deivson Figueiredo could easily win. Finally, we like Belal Muhammad to beat a declining Demian Maia, so backing this odds boost looks to be a solid play. Be sure to check out our full fight previews for Israel Adesanya, Deiveson Figueiredo and Belal Muhammad.
