Best sportsbook promotions and odds boosts for Thursday: NBA and NHL
We have put together a list of all of the day’s best odds boosts, which today are from DraftKings Sportsbook. We’ll discuss whether or not they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.
James Harden to record 50+ points/rebounds/assists – Boosted from +180 to +205 with DraftKings Sportsbook
For this prop, we will need James Harden to record at least 50 points/rebounds/assists tonight for the 76ers against the Brooklyn Nets. Note that this is the first game he has played against his former team, so Harden is going to want to have a good game. He is averaging 22.7 points per game, 7.9 rebounds per game and 10.4 assists per game on the season. As a member of the 76ers (5 games), Harden is averaging 24.6 points per game, 7.6 rebounds per game and 12.4 assists per game. The 76ers have also won every game since Harden joined, so expect him to have another huge game. For that reason, backing this prop looks to be worth a small play.

8+ total goals scored in Colorado Avalanche vs Carolina Hurricanes – Boosted from +225 to +265 with DraftKings Sportsbook
This prop needs there to be at least 8 goals in the NHL game between the Colorado Avalanche and the Carolina Hurricanes. It is safe to say they these are 2 of the best teams in the NHL. The Avalanche have the 2nd-best offense in the league, averaging 3.91 goals per game. The Hurricanes are also a top-10 offense, averaging 3.39 goals per game. The Canes have the best defense in the league, though, allowing 2.39 goals per game, but slowing down this Avalanche offense is going to be tough. Colorado has just an average defense, allowing 2.88 goals per game.
Both of these teams are still fighting for the best record in the NHL, so expect the offenses to shine. For that reason, we should count on goals in this matchup between these elite teams, making this prop worth a small play.
