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.
Giannis Antetokounmpo to score 34+ points (Boosted to +135), DraftKings Sportsbook
The Nets and Bucks will kick off their second-round series tonight and it is sure to be a good one. The Bucks know about the Nets’ Big 3 of Irving, Harden and Durant, but they will be confident in their own superstar, Giannis Antetokounmpo. He averaged 23.5 points per game in the series with the Miami Heat. The only difference was that the Bucks crushed this team in four games, so Antetokounmpo probably did not play quite as many minutes as he might today. With Donte DiVincenzo out, the Bucks are going to lean on Antetokounmpo even more, making this odds boost worth a play.
James Harden, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant to combine for 100+ points (Boosted to +850), DraftKings Sportsbook
The Nets’ Big 3 will look to start this series off strongly when they take on the Milwaukee Bucks. Irving, Harden and Durant averaged 85.2 combined points in the first round, however they did have a game where they reached this number. This game is sure to be fast-paced, which means more shots and ultimately more points. This odds boost does seem like a longshot, however at this big of a price, it is worth a small play.
Brad Marchand to score a goal and the Bruins to win (Boosted to +290), PointsBet Sportsbook
The second-round NHL series between the Boston Bruins and New York Islanders will resume tonight as the Islanders look to even up the series at 2-2. Brad Marchand has been excellent during the postseason, so we would not be surprised if he scores a goal in this game. However, our experts like the Islanders to tie up the series tonight, making this odds boost one to be hesitant about.
Kevin Durant to score 30+ points and the Nets to win (Boosted to +210), PointsBet Sportsbook
Kevin Durant was fantastic in the first-round series against the Boston Celtics and we think he could start this series with a great game as well. Durant is averaging 32.6 points per game in the postseason, leading the way for the Nets. The lack of defense expected in this game would make this odds boost intriguing. We also like the Nets to win and cover, so as long as Durant starts off hot, this boost looks like a solid play.
Jacob deGrom to record 10+ strikeouts (Boosted to +175), PointsBet Sportsbook
Mets ace Jacob deGrom has no doubt been the best pitcher in the league this season. He owns an ERA of 0.71, and will likely have to go deep into this game to keep his team in it. DeGrom has a K/9 of 14.5 this season, so if he even goes 7.0 innings, he will likely hit this number. Our experts actually lean toward San Diego in the game, but the Padres could easily score their runs after DeGrom eventually leaves the game. For that reason, this odds boost looks like a decent play.
Jairzinho Rozenstruik to win by TKO/KO vs. Augusto Sakai (Boosted to +180), FanDuel Sportsbook
What is sure to be a fast-paced UFC fight will see two heavyweights slug it out. Jairzinho Rozenstruik has won all but one of his fights by TKO/KO, making this odds boost intriguing. We already like this fight to end inside the distance, so this prop appears to be worth a small play.
