Nets, Islanders and Mets all to win (Boosted to +1100), William Hill Sportsbook
Three New York teams are back in action on Thursday and our experts like both the New York Mets and the New York Islanders to come away with wins. As for the Brooklyn Nets, we fully expect a Milwaukee Bucks bounce back game after they failed to hold a big lead in Game 5. For that reason, this appears to be an odds boost to avoid, even at the massive odds listed. Be sure to check out our full game previews for the , , and
Rockies, Padres and Angels all to win (Boosted to +550), William Hill Sportsbook
For this odds boost, we will need three teams to come through with wins tonight. Our experts like the San Diego Padres to handle the Cincinnati Reds and the Angels to beat Detroit. However, with the Colorado Rockies playing the Milwaukee Brewers, we are not so confident they can get the job done. For that reason, this is probably an odds boost best to avoid. Be sure to check out our full game previews for the Colorado Rockies, San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Angels.
Kevin Durant, Giannis Anteokounmpo, and Khris Middleton all record double-doubles (Boosted to +650), William Hill Sportsbook
These are some juicy odds being offered and there is a real reason to believe this is a solid play. Giannis Anteokounmpo has record a double-double in every game this series and we expect the same tonight. Kevin Durant has also recorded a double-double in four of the five games and with Kyrie Irving, he is likely going to reach this mark as well. That leaves Khris Middleton, who has recorded a double-double in two of the five game, however given the situation, he also has the ability to get there. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Javy Baez and Francisco Lindor both record a hit (Boosted to +140), DraftKings Sportsbook
While it is true that Francisco Lindor has struggled this season, this looks to be a decent play. Both he and Javier Baez have a hit in the series, so even though the pitching matchup is solid, there is reason to believe both will be able to record at least one hit. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Shohei Ohtani to record 10+ strikeouts (Boosted to +220), DraftKings Sportsbook
The Los Angeles Angels will take the field tonight with their star, Shohei Ohtani taking the mound. He has pitched well this season, to the tune of an ERA of 2.85. Facing the Detroit Tigers should only give him more confidence as they are not a team to be overly concerned about. Ohtani has a K/9 of 13.0 this season, so if he goes deep into this game, there is a chance that he will be able to reach this mark. Given the odds we are getting, this odds boost looks to be a decent play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
New York Islanders to score first and win (Boosted to +315), DraftKings Sportsbook
The Islanders may have lost Game 2, but because they are returning home, we believe they will be able to win tonight. They scored first in their Game 1 win, so with the crowd behind them, backing the same looks to be a decent play tonight. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Giannis Antetokounmpo over 2.5 dunks and Bucks to win (Boosted to +115), DraftKings Sportsbook
This odds boost should come naturally given the size of Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Bucks know this is a must win game and will try to not repeat the collapse they saw in Game 5. Our experts like the Bucks to win and cover for that matter, so backing this odds boost looks to be a decent play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
