Best sportsbook promotions and odds boosts for Thursday, June 10: NBA, NHL and MLB
There are plenty of sports going on today with the NHL playoffs, NBA playoffs 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, William Hill Sportsbook and PointsBet Sportsbook today, and whether they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.
Nets and Clippers to both win (Boosted to +500), William Hill Sportsbook
The Nets travel to Milwaukee for Game 3, but we have some skepticism that they can take a 3-0 series lead. The Bucks have shot poorly so far in this series, but with the home fans behind them, we believe the Bucks can win. As for the Clippers game, we actually like the Jazz to win and cover. So, even though these odds are huge, we do not think both of these teams will be able to win their games tonight. Be sure to check out our full game previews for the Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Clippers.
Astros, White Sox and Athletics all to win (Boosted to +650), William Hill Sportsbook
For this odds boost, we are going to need wins from three different MLB teams. We like the Astros with Zack Greinke on the mound and love the Oakland Athletics with Frankie Montas. However, we are not so confident in the White Sox. Chicago will be playing Toronto and have Dallas Keuchel on the mound. Hyun-Jin Ryu will take the hill for the Blue Jays. Of course these are huge odds, but we would still suggest using caution with this boost because of the lack of confidence in Chicago. Be sure to check out our full game preview for the Houston Astros, Chicago White Sox and Oakland Athletics.
Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving over 100.5 combined points (Boosted to +120), William Hill Sportsbook
The Milwaukee Bucks pretty much have their backs to the wall tonight, coming off a blowout loss in Game 2. Giannis Antetokounmpo did not have the greatest Game 2, scoring just 18 points. He is now averaging 26 points per game. Kevin Durant is averaging 30.5 points per game in this series and Kyrie Irving is averaging 23.5 points. So far in this series, these three players have combined for 88 points and 72 points. That is far below the line we need here, so this is probably an odds boost to avoid. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Rudy Gobert to record 3+ blocks (Boosted to +115), DraftKings Sportsbook
Rudy Gobert has pretty much always been a prolific shot blocker and that was the case in Game 1 as he had three blocks. Going back to the first round against the Grizzlies, Gobert averaged 3.2 blocks per game, so it is more than likely that he reaches this number tonight. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Kevin Durant to score 30+ points and the Nets to win (Boosted to +260), PointsBet Sportsbook
The Nets are cruising and that is even with James Harden getting hurt in the opening minutes of Game 1. We expect the Bucks to play better tonight, and we believe they could turn around this series. Kevin Durant is averaging 30.5 points in the series, but because we like the Bucks to prevail, this odds boost might be one to avoid. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Donovan Mitchell to score 25+ points and the Jazz to win (Boosted to +120), PointsBet Sportsbook
Donovan Mitchell showed he is an absolute beast by pouring in 45 points against the Clippers in Game 1. Unless he has an awful shooting night in Game 2, there is almost no way he does not score at least 25 points. Our experts also like the Jazz to win and cover, making this odds boost a reasonable play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Jonathan Marchessault to score a goal and the Golden Knights to win (Boosted to +280), PointsBet Sportsbook
The Vegas Golden Knights will look to close out their series with the Colorado Avalanche tonight in what should be a wild Game 6. This odds boost will focus on a one of their top player to score a goal and for the Golden Knights to come away with a win. Our experts already like Vegas in this game and we like Jonathan Marchessault to record a point, so what is better than getting these odds for both of these to happen? The last time Marchessault and the Golden Knights played at home, he had a hat-trick, so backing this odds boost looks to be a solid play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
