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

Francisco Lindor to record 2+ hits and the New York Mets to win – Boosted from +400 to +500 with PointsBet Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Francisco Lindor to record at least 2 hits and for the New York Mets to beat the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday Night Baseball. The Mets are off to a fantastic start, winning 15 of their first 22 games. Lindor has played a big role in their success, batting .282 with 4 home runs and 14 RBIs. He has recorded at least 1 hit in the last 3 games, and had 2 hits against the Phillies on Friday. He now has 6 multi-hit games this season and will be up against Zach Efflin tonight. Efflin as been pretty solid this season, but does give up his fair share of hits. Our experts also love the Mets to win the rubber game tonight, so backing Lindor to be a big part of that success will be worth a play.

Jayson Tatum to score 30+ points and the Boston Celtics to win – Boosted from +140 to +160 with PointsBet Sportsbook

The second round of the NBA playoffs begins this afternoon with a matchup between the Boston Celtics and the Milwaukee Bucks. This prop needs Jayson Tatum to score at least 30 points and the Boston Celtics to win the game. Tatum averaged 29.5 points per game in the sweep against the Brooklyn Nets and scored at least 30 points in 2 of the 4 games. The Celtics have had the 3rd-highest output in the playoffs, which should give Tatum ample opportunity to pour in at least 30 points.

Our experts like the Celtics to win and cover in Game 1 based on the fact that the Bucks tend to start their series slowly. Milwaukee is 4-7 in Game 1s dating back to 2018 with 6 of those losses coming by at least 6 points. For that reason, backing Tatum to have a big game and the Celtics to take a 1-0 series lead is worth a play.

Giannis Antetokounmpo & Jayson Tatum to each score 30+ points – Boosted from +180 to +280 with FanDuel Sportsbook

This prop is similar to the previous one and will need Tatum to score at least 30 points as well as Giannis Antetokounmpo. As mentioned in the previous prop, backing Tatum to reach at least 30 points looks to be a solid play given his success in the first series. As for Antetokounmpo, he averaged 28.6 points in the series against the Chicago Bulls. In 3 of the 5 games, Antetokounmpo surpassed the 30-point mark and he was close on another occasion, scoring 27. The Celtics may be the best defensive team in the league, but it is unlikely they will slow down Antetokounmpo for 48 minutes. They are more likely to let him get his points and focus on slowing down the rest of the Bucks.
