There are plenty of sports going on tonight with the NHL playoffs, NBA playoffs and a decent-sized baseball slate. There look to be plenty 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 all be from DraftKings Sportsbook today and whether they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.

Yu Darvish to Record 10+ Strikeouts and the Padres to Win (was +200, now +230), DraftKings Sportsbook

This odds boost starts solely with the performance of the Padres starting pitcher. That being Yu Darvish. He has easily been one of the best pitchers in the league so far this season, posting a 4-1 record and a 1.81 ERA. He has 69 strikeouts through nine starts and even though that is an average of just 7.66 per start, there is still reason to believe he can reach double-digits this afternoon. First of all, Darvish is coming off a 10 strikeout performance in his most recent start. He was able to go a full 7.0 innings in this game against the Rockies, which is what should be expected here against the Mariners.

Secondly, the Seattle Mariners have the eighth most strikeouts per game, averaging just under 10 per game. Obviously, we also need a San Diego win, but our expert loves the Padres in this game to finish off the sweep. The Padres have score 22 runs over their last two games against the Mariners and  and offense like that should be enough to warrant a play on this boost.

Jazz, Knicks and Suns all to Win (was +281, now +350), DraftKings Sportsbook

The NBA playoffs are in for a full day of action and these three teams will be looking to take an early series lead. Our experts love the Knicks today because of their success against the Hawks this season. They also just have Julius Randle, who should be able to pound inside and dominate the glass.

The Suns are another team that need to win and once again, our experts agree with this play. Sure, they are playing the Lakers, but it took last second heroics for Los Angeles to even be in this situation. The Suns were also 27-9 this season at home and we think that will be enough for them to prove to the Lakers that this series will not be a cakewalk. The final team in question is the Utah Jazz. It gets a bit tricky here because we believe this line is too big and have predicted a Memphis. Though, this odds boost is only about winning, therefore taking this boost looks to be a decent play.

Avalanche, Bruins and Jets all to Win (was +280, now +325), DraftKings Sportsbook

The NBA Playoffs are not the only ones in action, as we have several NHL games set for today. The Colorado Avalanche and Boston Bruins will be looking for series wins, while Winnipeg can go up 3-0 on the Edmonton Oilers. Our experts like Colorado and Boston to take care of business because of how dominant they have been against their respective opponents. However, we still believe Edmonton has some fight left in them, especially with the best player in the league on their team. For that reason, this odds boost may be best to stay away from.
