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.
Manchester City to win vs. Chelsea in 90 minutes (Boosted to +105), PointsBet Sportsbook
The Champions League final will kick off this afternoon and we have two English juggernauts looking for European glory. Manchester City has dominated teams for most of the campaign, easily winning the Premier League and the EFL Cup. Chelsea on the other hand, failed to beat Leicester City in the FA Cup final and while they have improved greatly this season, we believe Manchester City will be too strong for them today. Chelsea have beaten City twice this season, but the most recent match was after City had wrapped up the Premier League title and therefore it did not mean a ton for them. We believe City can win this trophy, so getting an odds boost at plus-money makes this a good-looking play.
Patrice Bergeron to score a goal and Boston to win (Boosted to +280), PointsBet Sportsbook
The second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs starts tonight with the New York Islanders and the Boston Bruins. Both teams took care of their first-round opponents easily, but we believe Boston has the edge tonight. They have a more mature team and have more experience playing at this level. Patrice Bergeron is one of those guys and he score three goals in the first round over five games. We already like Boston to win Game 1, so backing this odds boost looks like a decent play.
Nikola Jokic to score 30+ points and the Denver Nuggets to win (Boosted to +210), PointsBet
It is no surprise that Nikola Jokic has starred in this series, at least from a scoring perspective, and he is averaging 36 points through three games. However, Damian Lillard has been just as effective, averaging 37.6 points per game. The Trail Blazers know this is a must-win game and we believe they will show up big time tonight. So, while there is little to no doubt that Jokic will have 30+ points, staying away from this odds boost may be the safer play because we believe Portland can even up the series.
Ja Morant to record 40+ points/rebounds/assists (Boosted to +170), DraftKings Sportsbook
The Memphis Grizzlies stole Game 1 in Utah, but were not able to double up in Game 2. Now they return to Memphis needing to hold serve on their home court. Ja Morant has been electric so far in this postseason and just scored 47 points in the Game 2 loss. That alone would have surpassed the prop total we need tonight, so backing this odds boost looks to be a very strong play.
Joel Embiid and Ben Simmonds to combine for 50+ points (Boosted to +100), PointsBet Sportsbook
The 76ers are already up 2-0 and do not seem to be slowing down anytime soon. They head to Washington, looking to assert their dominance and to take complete control of this series. Joel Embiid has been a monster so far, scoring 30 points and 22 points in the two games. Ben Simmonds struggled in Game 1 with six points, but bounced back with 22 in Game 2. This prop has not actually hit yet, however at even money, it still looks to be a decent play for both guys to have huge games again.
