Best sportsbook promotions and odds boosts for Saturday: NBA Playoffs, MLB, Euro 2020 and UFC
There are plenty of sports going on today with the NBA Playoffs, Euro 2020 tournament, UFC 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.
Devin Booker to score 30+ points (Boosted to +150), PointsBet Sportsbook
Since Game 1 where Devin Booker score 40 points, he has not looked quite the same. He had 20 points in Game 2, plus a broken nose and then had just 15 points in Game 3. Also, Chris Paul is back which will likely take away from what Booker will be trying to do. Booker should shoot better in Game 4, but the Clippers are defending him better, so this odds boost is probably best to avoid. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Devin Booker to outscore Paul George and the Suns to win (Boosted to +310), DraftKings Sportsbook
Devin Booker came out in Game 3 with a mask after suffering a broken nose in Game 2. He did not have the game he was expecting to though, scoring just 15 points. He shot 5 of 21 from the field too and just 1 of 7 from downtown. Paul George scored 27 in Game 3 and has now outscored Booker in two of the three games. For that reason, this might be an odds boost worth avoiding. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Jacob deGrom to strikeout the first three batters in the first inning (Boosted to +600), DraftKings Sportsbook
Jacob deGrom has by far been the best pitcher in the league this season and looks to continue that trend against the Phillies on Saturday. He is striking batters out at a rapid pace, and even though this is a tall task, backing this play might be worth a small play just because of how good deGrom is. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Ciro Immobile to score and Italy to win (Boosted to +200), DraftKings Sportsbook
The Round of 16 gets underway in Euro 2020 today and the Italians look to have a favorable matchup against Austria. They won all their group stage games and did not allow a single goal. Ciro Immobile has been very solid as well, scoring two times throughout the group stage. Our experts like both of these plays, so combining them looks to be a good option as well. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Ciryl Gane to win by TKO/KO/DQ (Boosted to +340), DraftKings Sportsbook
Ciryl Gane is close to making a case for the Heavyweight title and will have the chance to improve his standing when he faces Alexander Volkov. Gane already has a few TKO/KO wins to his name and our experts already like Gane to win because of how balanced he is. Because of that, this looks to be a decent play given the odds we are getting. Be sure to check out our full fight preview for this matchup.
Daniel Pineda to win vs. Andre Fili (Boosted to +215), DraftKings Sportsbook
We will be looking for an upset here as Daniel Pineda takes on Andre Fili. Both fighters have had some success, but also both guys have been somewhat inconsistent. Fili was taken down seven times in his last fight, so while Pineda is not known for his grappling, he could exploit this. We like this fight to go the distance, but backing Pineda is not a bad play either because we do not feel that Fili is worth a big price. Be sure to check out our full fight preview for this matchup.
