Matthew uses a variety of methods to handicap games, including stats, trends, injuries, and situational factors. His goal is to consistently give out winners and will put in the research to try and achieve this.

There are plenty of sports going on today with the Euro 2020 soccer tournament, UFC, 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, FanDuel Sportsbook and PointsBet Sportsbook today, and whether they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.

No runs scored in the first inning of Chicago White Sox vs. Houston Astros (Boosted to +100), FanDuel Sportsbook

Lance Lynn will take the mound for the White Sox tonight and he has been spectacular all season. His 1.51 ERA suggests he will at least go through the first inning without allowing any runs. Framber Valdez has an ERA of 1.42, so backing this odds boost looks to be a solid play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Kevin Durant to outscore Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Nets to win (Boosted to +170), PointsBet Sportsbook

Kevin Durant has managed to outscore Giannis Antetokounmpo in three games this series, so there is a chance that could happen again tonight. However, our experts actually like the Bucks to win given the fact that they are healthier. For that reason, this looks to be an odds boost to avoid. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

White Sox to score 5+ runs and to win (Boosted to +300), DraftKings Sportsbook

The Chicago White Sox will take on the Houston Astros tonight and this odds boost calls for a big offensive day. The White Sox certainly have the lineup to do just that. It only helps that Chicago is facing a lefty, who they tend to do very well against. For that reason, this is an odds boost worth playing. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Kevin Durant and Giannis Antetokounmpo each to score 35+ points (Boosted to +290), DraftKings Sportsbook

It all comes down to one game to decide who will advance to the Eastern Conference Finals. Kevin Durant and Giannis Antetokounmpo have been stellar in this series and asking both players to leave it all on the court looks to be a good play tonight. Durant is averaging 33.3 points per game in the series and Antetokounmpo is averaging 30.5 points per game. Even though they are averaging less than the number we need, look for both players to have big games, which could make this odds boost worth a play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Lightning to score 3+ goals (Boosted to +110), DraftKings Sportsbook

The Tampa Bay Lightning will look to take a 3-1 lead tonight on the road, but we are not so confident they will do so. We actually like the Islanders to win and even up the series, and while this odds boost only asks for goals from Tampa Bay, an Islanders win likely means their defense will be top notch. For that reason, this looks to be an odds boost to avoid. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Aleksei Oleinik to win vs. Serghei Spivac (Boosted to +225), DraftKings Sportsbook

The Co-Main Event on tonight’s UFC card will see Aleksei Oleinik take on Serghei Spivac. Oleinik has more MMA fights than just about everybody, but he has struggled recently, losing his last two by TKO/KO. Spivac has legitimate power, so backing this odds boost may be best avoided. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
