Best sportsbook promotions and odds boosts for Thursday, June 3 for the MLB, NBA playoffs and NHL playoffs
There are plenty of sports going on today with the NHL playoffs, NBA playoffs and plenty of baseball games. 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 be from DraftKings Sportsbook and PointsBet Sportsbook today and whether they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.
White Sox and Cubs both to win (Boosted to +245), DraftKings Sportsbook
A couple of Chicago teams will be in action today and this odds boost focuses on both of them picking up a win. Our experts love the White Sox today against the Tigers, seeing that Lance Lynn will be on the mound. As for the Cubs, we do not have as much confidence. The Cubs will be playing the San Francisco Giants and with Zach Davies on the hill, we do not think they can get the job done. For that reason, this may be an odds boost to pass on instead of play.
Damian Lillard to score 10+ points in the fourth quarter (Boosted to +450), DraftKings Sportsbook
If you saw Game 5 of this series then you already know Damian Lillard is insanely good. He dropped 55 points in the game, yet the Blazers still managed to lose in double overtime. Tonight is a must win for Lillard and the Trail Blazers and we believe he is not going to go quietly. This game is likely going to be close, making this odds boost look like a great play. Lillard is known for his ability to score in crunch time, and ten points in the final quarter really is not that much to ask for. We also like Portland to win and cover, making this play a solid choice.
David Pastrnak to score a goal and the Bruins to win (Boosted to +220), PointsBet Sportsbook
The Boston Bruins lost their home advantage in Game 2 and will be looking to win on the road tonight. David Pastrnak has poured in four points in this series so far with a hat-trick in Game 1. There is reason to believe he can score again tonight because he is just that talented.
Devin Booker to outscore LeBron James (Boosted to +160), PointsBet Sportsbook
This is probably a lot to ask for but Devin Booker has been every bit as good as LeBron James in this series. The Suns’ top scorer is averaging 26.2 points per game, while James is averaging 22.2. Booker has also outscored James in three of the five games. The Lakers could get Anthony Davis back tonight, which would help, but also would share the points around more. There is also the possibility that James could walk out if the Lakers are losing by a wide margin late. This is probably unlikely, but seeing that it happened in Game 5, there is still a chance. Booker and the Suns do not want to play a Game 7, so this odds boost is a reasonable play given how the series has gone.
Nikola Jokic to score 25+ points and the Nuggets to win (Boosted to +230), PointsBet Sportsbook
Nikola Jokic is another superstar in this series and has been dominating the Trail Blazers. Now averaging 32.4 points per game, Jokic is likely going to pass the 25-point mark we need. However, our experts still believe that the Trail Blazers can force a Game 7, so this odds boost might be better to stay away from.
