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

Jayson Tatum to score 30+ points and the Boston Celtics to win – Boosted from +155 to +180 with PointsBet Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Jayson Tatum to score at least 30 points against the Brooklyn Nets and the Boston Celtics will need to win the game. Tatum averaged 26.9 points per game in the regular season, the 7th-most in the NBA this year. In 4 games against the Nets, Tatum averaged 29.5 points per game, just under what we will need this afternoon. Tatum also ended the regular season with a 31-point game against the Memphis Grizzlies and scored at least 30 points in 2 of his last 4 games. A big performance should be expected today as well, considering the Nets have had problems defensively this season. Our experts also like the Celtics to cover and to win Game 1 of this series, so backing this prop and for Tatum to take over this game is worth a play.

Giannis Antetokounmpo to score 35+ points and the Milwaukee Bucks to win – Boosted from +140 to +165 with PointsBet Sportsbook

This prop needs Giannis Antetokounmpo to score at least 35 points and the Milwaukee Bucks to beat the Chicago Bulls in Game 1 of their first-round series. Antetokounmpo averaged 29.9 points per this season, the 2nd-most in the NBA. In 4 games against the Bulls, he averaged 26.8 points per game, failing to surpass 35 points in any of these game. Over his last 4 games, he also failed to score 35+ points. The last time he got over this number was at the end of March. Our experts would lean to a Bucks’ win and cover, but look for the Bulls to do enough to keep Antetokounmpo somewhat in check and keep him under this total. For that reason, avoiding this prop looks to be the best option.

Devin Booker to score 30+ points and the Phoenix Suns to win – Boosted from +150 to +175 with PointsBet Sportsbook

This prop needs Devin Booker to score at least 30 points tonight against the New Orleans Pelicans and the Phoenix Suns will need to win the game. Booker averaged 26.8 points per game this season, the 8th-most in the NBA. In 4 games against the Pelicans, Booker averaged 27 points per game, surpassing 30 points in 2 of the 4 games. Booker ended the season with 3 straight 30+ point games and looks to be in a good spot to do so again. Our experts like the Pelicans to keep this game inside double digits, but a Suns win is the likely result. For that reason, backing this prop is worth a play.
