Best sportsbook promotions and odds boosts for Saturday: NBA Finals Game 5

Best sportsbook promotions and odds boosts for Saturday: NBA Finals Game 5

There are plenty of sports taking place today with the CONCACAF Gold Cup, NBA Finals, MLS, UFC and a full MLB slate. There are plenty of promotions and boosts on offer that you can look to take advantage of for the sports tonight.

We’ve put together a list of all of the day’s best boosts, which happen to be from DraftKings Sportsbook, PointsBet Sportsbook and FanDuel Sportsbook, and whether they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.

Phoenix Suns to be the first team to score 10 points in Game 5 (Boosted to -115), DraftKings Sportsbook

This odds boost truly looks to be a coin flip, as either team could get hot early and get to to ten points first. The Bucks have actually been the first team to score ten points in three of the four games. The Suns are at home, but the Bucks have had relatively hot starts in every game. The odds are not great on this prop either, so this is an odds boost I would look to avoid. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Devin Booker or Giannis Antetokounmpo to record the first made FG of Game 5 (Boosted to +230), DraftKings Sportsbook

Devin Booker managed to score the first field goal in Game 4, and there is reason again to believe he could first first tonight. We also have Giannis Antetokounmpo who could do the same. In what is a crucial Game 5, I would expect the best players on the court to have the ball early, even including the first possession. For that reason, this boost is probably worth a small play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Chris Paul to have the most assists of any player in Game 5 (Boosted to +140), DraftKings Sportsbook

This Suns offense tends to run through Chris Paul and being at home is going to be a huge boost. In three of the four games, Paul has tied for the most assists in the game. In Game 4, he was one assist short of tying for the lead in the fourth straight game. The odds on this boost are certainly not the best, so because this seems to be a little random, I would look to avoid this play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Milwaukee Bucks to record 14+ threes made in Game 5 (Boosted to +160), DraftKings Sportsbook

The Milwaukee Bucks have been a bit inconsistent in this series in regards to making three-pointers. They made 16 in Game 1, 9 in Game 2, 14 in Game 3 and 7 in Game 4. Though if they are going to win their third game in a row, they will likely need to find their range tonight. The Suns tend to be a better defensive team at home, so this is likely an odds boost best to avoid. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Bet $1, win $150 on either the Bucks or the Suns to win Game 5 in the NBA Finals, DraftKings Sportsbook

DraftKings is offering a very generous odds boost for the NBA Finals and one that you should consider taking advantage of. At the price of $1 and being back at home, the Suns are a no-brainer. Our experts like them to even cover the -4 spread, but just a win would be enough to cash this play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Devin Booker to score 30+ points and the Suns to win (Boosted to +225), PointsBet Sportsbook

Devin Booker poured in 42 points in Game 4, but it still was not enough to give his team the win. We expect the role players for the Suns will play much better tonight at home, but Booker should still be able to have enough points to exceed this prop. Our experts like the Suns to cover tonight, so just having to win, this looks to be an odds boost worth playing. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
