We have put together a list of all of the day’s best odds boosts, which are from FanDuel Sportsbook and PointsBet Sportsbook. We will discuss whether or not they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.

Mika Zibanejad to score 1+ goal and New York Rangers to win – Boosted from +360 to +320 with PointsBet Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Mika Zibanejad to score at least 1 goal and for the New York Rangers will need to beat the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals this afternoon. The Rangers won both games at home to take a 2-0 series lead and will have the chance to take a commanding 3-0 series lead today. The problem is that they will be on the road and the Lightning know this is a must-win situation. Zibanejad has 9 goals in the postseason, including at least 1 in 6 of his last 7 games and 1 in each of the 2 games in this series.

While our experts like the Lightning to defend their home ice and pull a game back today, this prop still looks to be worth a small play because the Rangers are playing with full confidence, especially Zibanejad, who has been a large part of the Rangers’ success.

Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown to both score 25+ points and the Celtics to win – Boosted from +475 to +580 with PointsBet Sportsbook

This prop needs Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown to both score at least 25 points and for the Celtics to beat the Warriors in Game 2 of the NBA Finals. The Celtics opened the series with a huge road win on Thursday.

Boston won despite the fact that Tatum had just 12 points and shot 3 of 17 from the field. He is likely not going to shoot that poorly again, which should help the Celtics’ chances of taking a second game on the road. Brown provided 24 points in Game 1 and could have a similar output tonight. We should likely not expect Al Horford to be the leading scorer for the Celtics against or Derrick White to have 21 points off the bench. That should allow Tatum to have a much better game and more than likely reach the number we need alongside Brown.

Our experts like the Warriors to win and cover, but with the odds given for this prop and with what we saw in Game 1 with Tatum having a terrible shooting night, this prop does actually look to be worth a small play in what should be a bounce-back spot for Tatum.

Stephen Curry and Jayson Tatum to each score 30+ points – Boosted from +400 to +500 with FanDuel Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Stephen Curry and Jayson Tatum to each score at least 30 points in Game 2 of the NBA Finals. Curry was able to surpass 30 points in Game 1, ending the game with 34 points in a losing effort. He and the Warriors know this is likely a must-win game already as they cannot afford to lose both games at home before the series shifts to Boston.

Tatum had one of his worst shooting nights of the postseason and in turn, scored just 12 points in Game 1. Because we cannot expect as much production from the Boston bench in Game 2, we should expect Tatum to have a much better game tonight. In previous series in the games after Tatum scored fewer than 20 points, he scored at least 30 points on all 3 occasions. For that reason, backing this prop looks to be worth a play.
